23rd International Conference on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical
Systems (FMICS)



Co-located with the 14th International Conference on integrated Formal
Methods (iFM) 





Call for Papers - Extended Deadline






Abstract submission: (extended) 7 May 2018

Paper submission: (extended) 11 May 2018

Conference: 03-04 September 2018




The aim of the FMICS conference series is to provide a forum for researchers
who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in
industry. In particular, FMICS brings together scientists and engineers who
are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their
experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS conference
series also strives to promote research and development for the improvement
of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Design, specification, code generation, and testing based on formal

- Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis,
certification, debugging, learning, optimization and transformation of
complex, distributed, real-time systems and embedded systems.

- Automated verification (model checking, theorem proving, SAT/SMT
constraint solving, abstract interpretation, etc.) of critical systems

- Verification and validation methods that address shortcomings of existing
methods with respect to their industrial applicability (e.g., scalability
and usability issues).

- Tools for the development of formal design descriptions.

- Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal
methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research

- Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process and
associated costs. Application of formal methods in standardization and
industrial forums.

- Formal methods for mobile and autonomous systems.


Submission and Publication


Papers must describe authors' original research work and results. Submitted
papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or conference with
published proceedings and must not be concurrently submitted to any other
peer-reviewed workshop, symposium, conference or archival journal. Any
partial overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must
be clearly indicated.


Submissions should clearly demonstrate relevance to industrial application.
Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical
results (such as scalability of methods) or provide specific motivation for
further research and development.


Papers should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the LNCS style
(Springer). All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee who
will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness
and applicability of the presented ideas and results.


Papers must be written in English and should be submitted as Portable
Document Format (PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site:




The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in their LNCS
series, while authors of the best full papers will be invited to submit
extended versions to a special issue of the International Journal on
Software Tools for Technology Transfer.
