FM 2019 is the 23rd international symposium in a series organised by
Formal Methods Europe (FME), an independent association whose aim is
to stimulate the use of, and research on, formal methods for software
development. Every ten years the symposium is organised as a World
Congress. Twenty years after FM’99 in Toulouse, and ten years after
FM’09 in Eindhoven, FM’19 is the 3rd World Congress on Formal
Methods. Thus, FM’19 will be both an occasion to celebrate and a
platform for enthusiastic researchers and practitioners from a
diversity of backgrounds to exchange their ideas and share their


For this major event, we are now inviting proposals for workshops,
tutorials, or other satellite events that will complement the main FM
Symposium and co-located conferences.

The purpose of the satellite events is to provide an informal setting
for participants to discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas,
and to discuss and/or demonstrate applications. These may be driven by
fundamental academic interests or by needs from specific application
domains. We encourage a diversity of events relating to different
varieties of formal models. Satellite events will take place on 7-8
October 2019. Satellite events would typically run for 1/2 or 1 day,
but 2 day events will also be considered. The FM'19 organising
committee aim to support one invited speaker per workshop.


Researchers and practitioners wishing to organise a workshop or
tutorial are invited to submit proposals by e-mail to the Workshops &
Tutorials Chairs,

  Nelma Moreira (nam at dcc.fc.up.pt) and Emil Sekerinski (emil at mcmaster.ca).

A proposal should not exceed three pages and should include the
following information:

* Title and brief technical description of the event, specifying the
  goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.

* The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the
  organisers. In case of a workshop those will be the Programme
  Committee (PC) chairs and in this case a prospective list of
  international PC members is welcome.

* Pointers to information about past editions of the event, if
  applicable.  In case of a workshop, if it has taken place before;
  how often it has been colocated with FM? Which (other) conference(s)
  has the workshop been colocated with so far? Number of participants
  in the last instalment.

* A discussion of the proposed format and agenda (for example paper
  presentations, tutorials, demo sessions, etc).

* The proposed duration: half or one day. Exceptionally, two days
  events may be considered.

* Potential invited speaker(s).

* Procedures for selecting papers and participants and plans for the
  publication of proceedings, if any.

* Tentative schedule for paper submission and notification of

The organisers of satellite events are expected to create and maintain
a website for the event; handle paper selection, reviewing and
acceptance; draw up a programme of talks; advertise their event though
specialist mailing lists; prepare the informal pre-proceedings (if
applicable) in a timely fashion; and arrange any post-proceedings.
