Control and analysis of the timing of computations is crucial to many domains
of system engineering, be it, e.g., for ensuring timely response to stimuli
originating in an uncooperative environment, or for synchronising components
in VLSI. Reflecting this broad scope, timing aspects of systems from a variety
of domains have been treated independently by different communities in
computer science and control. Researchers interested in semantics,
verification and performance analysis study models such as timed automata and
timed Petri nets, the digital design community focuses on propagation and
switching delays, while designers of embedded controllers have to take account
of the time taken by controllers to compute their responses after sampling the
environment, as well as of the dynamics of the controlled process during this

Timing-related questions in these separate disciplines do have their
particularities. However, there is a growing awareness that there are basic
problems (of both scientific and engineering level) that are common to all of
them. In particular, all these sub-disciplines treat systems whose behaviour
depends upon combinations of logical and temporal constraints; namely,
constraints on the temporal distances between occurrences of successive
events. Often, these constraints cannot be separated, as the intrinsic
dynamics of processes couples them, necessitating models, methods, and tools
facilitating their combined analysis. Reflecting this, FORMATS'17 promotes
submissions on hybrid discrete-continuous systems, and will promote a special
session on this topic.



The aim of FORMATS is to promote the study of fundamental and practical
aspects of timed systems, and to bring together researchers from different
disciplines that share interests in modelling and analysis of timed systems
and, as a generalisation, of hybrid systems. Typical topics include (but are
not limited to):

* Foundations and Semantics :

Theoretical foundations of timed systems and languages; new models and logics
or analysis and comparison of existing models (like automata, Petri nets, max-
plus models, network calculus, or process algebras involving quantitative
time; hybrid automata; probabilistic automata and logics).

* Methods and Tools :

Techniques, algorithms, data structures, and software tools for analysing or
synthesising timed or hybrid systems and for resolving temporal constraints
(scheduling, worst-case execution time analysis, optimisation, model checking,
testing, constraint solving, etc.)

* Applications :

Adaptation and specialisation of timing technology in application domains in
which timing plays an important role (real-time software, embedded control,
hardware circuits, and problems of scheduling in manufacturing and

                                          Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil

Abstract Submission Deadline: *7th of July, 2017 ** 14th of July, 2017*
Paper Submission Deadline: *14th of July, 2017*
Paper Acceptance Notification: 1st of September, 2017
Paper Camera-ready Version: 8th of September, 2017


SBMF 2017 is the twentieth of a series of events devoted to the
development, dissemination and use of formal methods for the construction
of high-quality computational systems. It is now a well-established event,
with an international reputation.

In 2017, SBMF will take place in Recife, the capital of the state
Pernambuco, which is located in the northeast Brazil. It is the 9th city by
population in Brazil, with over 1.5 million inhabitants, and it receives
more than 5 million tourists from Brazil and abroad per year.


The aim of SBMF is to provide a venue for the presentation and discussion
of high-quality work in formal methods. The topics include, but are not
limited to, the following:

* techniques and methodologies, such as method integration; software and
hardware co-design; model-driven engineering; formal aspects of popular
methodologies; formal design; development methodologies with formal
foundations; software evolution based on formal methods;

* specification and modelling languages, such as well-founded specification
and design languages; formal aspects of popular languages; logics and
semantics for programming and specification languages; code generation;
formal methods and models for objects, aspects, component-based, real-time,
hybrid, critical, and service-oriented systems;

* theoretical foundations, such as domain theory; type systems and category
theory; computational complexity of methods and models; computational
models; term rewriting; models of concurrency, security and mobility;

* verification and validation, such as abstraction, modularisation and
refinement techniques; program and test synthesis; correctness by
construction; model checking; theorem proving; static analysis; formal
techniques for software testing; software certification; formal techniques
for software inspection;

* education, such as teaching of, for and with formal methods;

* applications, such as experience reports on the use of formal methods;
industrial case studies; tool support.


Papers with a strong emphasis on Formal Methods, whether practical or
theoretical, are invited for submission. They should present unpublished
and original work that has a clear contribution to the state of the art on
the theory and practice of formal methods. They should not be
simultaneously submitted elsewhere.

Papers will be judged by at least three reviewers on the basis of
originality, relevance, technical soundness and presentation quality and
should contain sound theoretical or practical results. Industry papers
should emphasize practical application of formal methods or report on open

Contributions should be written in English and be prepared using Springer’s
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format. Papers may not exceed 16
pages (including figures, references and appendix). Accepted papers will be
published, after the conference, in a *volume of* *LNCS*.  Also, a special
issue of *Science of Computer Programming (Elsevier) *is going to be
published for the very best papers.

Every accepted paper MUST have at least one author registered in the
symposium by the time the camera-ready copy is submitted; the registered
author is also expected to  attend the symposium and present the paper.

Papers can be submitted via the following link:


Recife stands out as a major tourist attraction, both for its beaches and
for its historic sites, dating back to both the Portuguese and the Dutch
colonisation of the region. The Boa Viagem beach is one of the most famous
urban beaches in Brazil. Visitors get enchanted by the sandy beaches with
warm green waters, and also by the complete infrastructure of hotels,
restaurants and services which surrounds it. The beach of Porto de
Galinhas, 60 kilometers south of Recife, has been repeatedly awarded the
title of best beach in Brazil. The historic centre of Olinda, 7 kilometers
north of Recife, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1982, and
both cities’ Carnival are among the world's most famous.

Recife is also considered the first gastronomic hub of the northeastern
region, the second medical centre in Brazil, besides housing the greatest
technological park in the country, known as Porto Digital. In Recife, you
will find culture, history, food and fun all in one place.
