Second Call for Papers

                     FROM 2019

               Working Formal Methods Symposium
         September 3-5, 2019, Timisoara, Romania

               in conjunction with SYNASC 2019

FROM aims to bring together researchers and practitioners who work
on formal methods by contributing new theoretical results, methods,
techniques, and frameworks, and/or make the formal methods to work
by creating or using software tools that apply theoretical contributions.

FROM 2019 is the third event in a yearly workshop series. The first edition
was held in 2017 in Bucharest (see http://unibuc.ro/~conference/from2017),
it included sixteen invited talks delivered by top researchers in field,
and seven contributed talks. The second edition was held in 2018 in Iasi
(see http://fmse.info.uaic.ro/event/from-2018) and it included 9 invited
talks and 14 contributed talks.

The program of the symposium will include invited lectures and  regular
contributions. Submissions on the general topic of theoretical
computer science, formal methods and applications are solicited.
