FMICS 2019: the 24th International Conference on
Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems

Co-located with CONCUR and FORMATS

Aug 30-31, 2019, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

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.

Important Dates

Abstract submission: 19 April 2019
Paper submission: 26 April 2019
Notifications: 5 June 2019
Camera ready: 19 June 2019
Conference: 30-31 August 2019


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

- Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal
  methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research
- Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis,
  debugging, descriptions, learning, optimisation and transformation of
  distributed, real-time, embedded, mobile and autonomous systems.
- Verification and validation methods (model checking, theorem proving,
  SAT/SMT constraint solving, abstract interpretation, etc.) that address
  shortcomings of existing methods with respect to their industrial
  (e.g., scalability and usability issues).
- Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process and
  associated costs. Application of formal methods in standardisation and
  industrial forums.

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 motivate 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 (excluding max. 2 pages of
references) formatted according to the LNCS style (Springer). All
submissions will be reviewed by the Programme 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
