Formal Methods Teaching Workshop and Tutorial - FMTea19
Porto, October 7, 2019

Affiliated with the 3rd World Congress on Formal Methods<http://formalmethods2019.inesctec.pt/?page_id=84>

FMTea19 aims to share experiences of teaching formal methods that have gone well, or that failed in surprising ways, as well as to develop ways to reboot the presence of formal methods in curricula.

FMTea19 is a full-day event, comprising both a tutorial part in the morning as well as the workshop part in the afternoon. We are extremely happy with both the invited and tutorial lectures in the morning as well as with the enthusiastic response we got to our call for papers.

Tutorial part of FMTea19
We are very pleased to present the following tutorial program in the morning:
-        Invited lecture: Prof Carroll Morgan (University of New South Wales and Data61, Australia) - Is Formal Methods Really Essential?
-        Tutorial lecture: Sir Tony Hoare (Cambridge University Computing Laboratory, UK) - Logic, Algebra, and Geometry at the Foundation of Computer Science
-        Tutorial lecture: Prof Holger Hermanns (Saarland University, Germany) - pseuCo.com
-        Tutorial lecture: Prof Bas Luttik (Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands): Efficient Online Homologation to Prepare Students for Formal Methods Courses

Workshop Part of FMTea19
The workshop program includes the presentation and discussion of 12 papers and 3 posters. We have divided the papers into three panel sessions. Each paper is shortly presented in its panel session and then, the session's presenters participate in a panel discussion of 30 minutes, led by one/two session chairs. The idea is to encourage an open and inclusive discussion that could also engage the audience. The posters will be placed inside FMTea's room and be available for discussion, for instance, during the afternoon coffee break. You can check the accepted papers below:

- Andrew Simpson. Teaching Introductory Formal Methods and Discrete Mathematics to Software Engineers: Reflections on a modelling-focussed approach

The abstracts of all presentations and the FMTea19 schedule can be seen here: https://www.easychair.org/smart-program/FMTea19/.

Registration is open as follows:
-        Early - until Sep 10 (AoE)
-        Late - from Sep 11 until 5 Oct (AoE)
-        On site - from Oct 6 to Oct 11 (AoE)

Registration is via the FM2019 website: http://formalmethods2019.inesctec.pt/?page_id=2363, where you can check the info on prices, deadlines, etc for FMTea, FM and related events, while the registration platform itself is here: https://www.weezevent.com/fm-19. The early registration fee (until September 10) for FMTea19 is 140 eur. It is very important that you mention FMTea19 in the text box if you register for more than our event (say for the whole week at FM'19). Only in this way we will know that you registered to FMTea and prepare accordingly.

The FMTea19 proceedings will be available only online. This belongs to a global move of the FM'19 events - they are all paperless, in an effort to provide a greener environment. The FMTea19 online proceedings will be available only to the registered FMTea19 participants, so please register in time to catch the early fee, until September 10. The proceedings is published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, volume 11758.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any question that may pop up. We are very happy about the FMTea19 program and look forward to meet you all on October 7 in Porto!

Kind regards,
