Call for Papers
i-Day 2019 - Industry Day
3rd World Congress on Formal Methods
Porto, Portugal, October 7-11, 2019

FM’19 is the third world congress on Formal Methods. The FM series of
events has been notably successful in bringing together innovators and
practitioners in precise mathematical methods for software and systems
development, industrial users, as well as researchers.

The Industry Day (i-Day) is a forum organized in conjunction with FM
and targeting industrial development and use of formal methods. The
objective of i-Day is to bring industry to the congress, and to foster
the important discussion about where state of the art in formal
methods is today, seen from an industry point of view

The i-Day will host two keynotes, Michael Leuschel (University of
Dusseldorf) and Constance Heitmeyer (Naval Research Laboratory), and
several presentations selected through a call for papers.

The i-Day welcomes short papers and extended abstracts describing
industrial applications of formal methods, experience with introducing
formal methods in industry, tool usage reports and experiments with
challenge problems. Authors are encouraged to explain how the use of
formal methods has overcome engineering and
certification/qualification problems, led to improvements in design or
provided new insights, with safety and/or security consideration in

Topics of particular interest include (but are not restricted to):
- formal modelling and verification techniques
- safety and security
- autonomous vehicles
- explainable AI

We can accept two types of submission:
- Industrial experience reports or research papers with strong
connexion with industry – not more than 10 pages in length (including
appendices and references),
- Extended abstracts - between 2 and 4 pages.

The selection will be based on the innovative aspects of the subject
and its connexion with current topics.  At least one author of each
