FM2009 is the sixteenth international symposium of the Formal
Methods Europe association. Ten years after the world congress

again, a global platform for researchers and practitioners from a
diversity of countries, backgrounds and schools to exchange ideas
and share experiences. Several conferences are collocating with
FM2009 within FMweek.

The organizing committee of FM2009 cordially invites proposals for
one or two day workshops in the wide area of formal methods. In
particular, workshops on new or emerging fields of application of
formal methods are appreciated.

Workshops will take place preceding the symposium, on 2 and 3
November 2009. For each accepted workshop limited financial
support is available.

FM2009 workshop proposals should include:

- names and affiliations of the workshop organizers
- format of the workshop, duration and selection procedure
- form of proceedings, if applicable
- expected number of participants.

Proposals can be sent to the workshop chair Erik de Vink at
evink@win.tue.nl. Deadline for submission is 22 December 2008.

Proposals will be evaluated by the FM2009 organizing committee.
Notification will be sent early January. Workshops that have informal
proceedings can be assisted in printing and distribution by the
FM2009 organizing committee. Workshop participants are invited to
