Runtime verification is concerned with the monitoring and analysis of
the runtime behaviour of software and hardware systems. Runtime
verification techniques are crucial for system correctness, reliability,
and robustness; they provide an additional level of rigor and
effectiveness compared to conventional testing, and are generally more
practical than exhaustive formal verification. Runtime verification can
be used prior to deployment, for testing, verification, and debugging
purposes, and after deployment for ensuring reliability, safety, and
security and for providing fault containment and recovery as well as
online system repair.

Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:

  * specification languages
  * monitor construction techniques
  * program instrumentation
  * logging, recording, and replay
  * combination of static and dynamic analysis
  * specification mining and machine learning over runtime traces
  * monitoring techniques for concurrent and distributed systems
  * runtime checking of privacy and security policies
  * statistical model checking
  * metrics and statistical information gathering
  * program/system execution visualization
  * fault localization, containment, recovery and repair
  * integrated vehicle health management (IVHM)

Application areas of runtime verification include cyber-physical
systems, safety/mission-critical systems, enterprise and systems
software, autonomous and reactive control systems, health management and
diagnosis systems, and system security and privacy.

We welcome contributions exploring the combination of runtime
verification techniques with machine learning and static analysis.
Whilst these are highlight topics, papers falling into these categories
will not be treated differently from other contributions.

An overview of previous RV conferences and earlier workshops can be
found at: http://www.runtime-verification.org.

RV 2017 will be held September 13-16 in Seattle, WA, USA. RV 2017 will

    General Information on Submissions

All papers and tutorials will appear in the conference proceedings in an
LNCS volume. Submitted papers and tutorials must use the LNCS/Springer
style detailed here:


Papers must be original work and not be submitted for publication
elsewhere. Papers must be written in English and submitted
electronically (in PDF format) using the EasyChair submission page here:


The page limitations mentioned below include all text and figures, but
exclude references. Additional details omitted due to space limitations
may be included in a clearly marked appendix, that will be reviewed at
the discretion of reviewers, but not included in the proceedings.

At least one author of each accepted paper and tutorial must attend RV
2017 to present.

    Paper Submissions

There are three categories of papers which can be submitted: regular,
short or tool papers. Papers in each category will be reviewed by at
least 3 members of the Program Committee.

  * *Regular Papers* (up to 15 pages, not including references) should
    present original unpublished results. We welcome theoretical papers,
    system papers, papers describing domain-specific variants of RV, and
    case studies on runtime verification.
  * *Short Papers* (up to 6 pages, not including references) may present
    novel but not necessarily thoroughly worked out ideas, for example
    emerging runtime verification techniques and applications, or
    techniques and applications that establish relationships between
    runtime verification and other domains.
  * *Tool Demonstration Papers* (up to 8 pages, not including
    references) should present a new tool, a new tool component, or
    novel extensions to existing tools supporting runtime verification.
    The paper must include information on tool availability, maturity,
    selected experimental results and it should provide a link to a
    website containing the theoretical background and user guide.
    Furthermore, we strongly encourage authors to make their tools and
    benchmarks available with their submission.

The Program Committee of RV 2017 will give a best paper award, and a
selection of accepted regular papers will be invited to appear in a
special issue of the Springer Journal on Formal Methods in System Design

    Tutorial Submissions

Tutorials are two-to-three-hour presentations on a selected topic.
Additionally, tutorial presenters will be offered to publish a paper of
up to 20 pages in the LNCS conference proceedings, not including references.

A proposal for a tutorial must contain the subject of the tutorial, a
proposed timeline, a note on previous similar tutorials (if applicable)
and the differences to this incarnation, and a brief biography of the
presenter. The proposal should not exceed 2 pages.

Important Dates

Abstract submission:   Tuesday, March 28, 2017
Paper submission:      Tuesday, April 4, 2017
Notification:          Friday, May 26, 2017

Conference:            September 20-22, 2017

Deadlines expire at 23:59 anywhere on earth on the dates displayed above.

Objectives and Scope

Applying formal methods may involve the usage of different formalisms and
different analysis techniques to validate a system, either because individual
components are most amenable to one formalism or technique, because one is
interested in different properties of the system, or simply to cope with the
sheer complexity of the system. The iFM conference series seeks to further
research into hybrid approaches to formal modeling and analysis; i.e., the
combination of (formal and semi-formal) methods for system development,
regarding both modeling and analysis. The conference covers all aspects from
language design through verification and analysis techniques to tools and
integration into software engineering practice.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

- Formal and semi-formal modeling notations
- Combining formal methods
- Integration of formal methods into software engineering practice
- Program verification, model checking, and static analysis
- Runtime analysis, monitoring, and testing
- Program synthesis
- Analysis and synthesis of hybrid, embedded, probabilistic, distributed, or
  concurrent systems
- Model learning
- Theorem proving, decision procedures, SAT and SMT solving

Submission Guidelines

iFM 2017 solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or
experience reports related to the overall theme of method integration.

We solicit papers in the following categories:

- Research papers describe original scientific research results, validated by
  experimental results where applicable. Submissions will be judged on the
  basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity.
  Limit: 15 pages.
- Case study papers report on applications of formal methods, preferably in a
  real world setting. A case study paper need not introduce novel techniques
  tools, but it must include a rigorous empirical evaluation and potentially
  of interest to practitioners.
  Limit: 15 pages.
- Regular tool papers present a new tool or novel extensions to an existing
  tool. They should provide a short description of the theoretical
  while focusing on the tool's design and implementation concerns, as well as
  empirical evaluation of its practical capabilities. Papers that present
  extensions to existing tools should clearly focus on the improvements or
  extensions with respect to previously published versions of the tool.
  are strongly encouraged to make their tools publicly available, preferably
  the web.
  Limit: 15 pages.
- Tool demonstration papers focus on the usage aspects of tools. Foundations
  and empirical evaluation are not required, but the paper should explain why
  the tool is relevant for the community, and, in particular, for
  practitioners. As with regular tool papers, authors are strongly encouraged
  to make their tools publicly available, preferably on the web.
  Limit: 8 pages.

Page limits include bibliography and any appendices. All submissions must be
original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Each paper
will undergo a thorough review process.

Submissions should be made using the iFM 2017 Easychair website:

Submissions must be in PDF format, using the Springer LNCS style files; we
suggest to use the LaTeX2e package (the llncs.cls class file, available in
llncs2e.zip and the typeinst.dem available in typeinst.zip as a template for
your contribution). The conference proceedings will be published in Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

All accepted papers must be presented at the conference. Their authors must be
prepared to sign a copyright transfer statement. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register to the conference by the early registration date,
to be indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.

Workshops and PhD Symposium
iFM 2017 will be accompanied by a series of workshops and a PhD Symposium.
Further information is available from the conference website:

Conference Location
iFM 2017 is organized by the University of Turin and will take place in Turin,
