Last Call for Papers (REGULAR and SHORT)


                     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.

to another conference at the same time.

Short papers may be research papers, describe work in progress or provide

system descriptions. They need not be original.

Regular paper will be considered for inclusion in the EPTCS proceedings of

symposium. The submitting author of an accepted regular paper will have to
