CFP: special issue Journal of Logic and Algebraic Programming on Quantitative Formal Methods


The Journal of Logic and Algebraic Programming

Special Issue on Quantitative Formal Methods: Theory and Applications
Guest editors: Suzana Andova, Annabelle McIver and Manuel Nunez

This is a general call for papers for the special issue related to the first workshop
in Quantitative Formal Methods: Theory and Applications
which was held in Eindhoven on 3 November 2009 as part of the FM 2009 world congress.
The themes of the workshop, and the special issue are broadly aligned with theoretical
results and their practical application in any area of formal methods which requires
quantitative reasoning or analysis.

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

-     Formal modeling of quantitative behaviour: timed, continuous and
hybrid, probabilistic, costs and rewards, expected-value;
-     Formal verification, testing, analysis as above;
-     Formal analysis of quantitative performance, broadly understood;
-     Industrial case-studies on any (combination) of the above, e.g.,
hardware verification and performance evaluation, security systems with
probabilistic behavior, risk analysis in safety-critical systems, quantitative aspects
of wireless networks, etc.
-     Quantitative techniques in refinement, simulation and bisimulation;
-     Quantitative algebraic and rewriting techniques.

This is an open call for submissions; articles (of approximate length 15-30 pages)
should be original and high quality, and should neither have been published already,
nor submitted simultaneously elsewhere.

Important dates:
Submission deadline:  June 20 2010 (extended)
Reviewing notification: November 1 2010

Submissions must comply with JLAP's author guidelines (see
be written in English, and be formatted using LaTeX.

Submissions should be submitted via the JLAP electronic submission system . To submit, authors should be registered on the system and select "Special issue: QFM 2009" when they reach the "Article Type" step in the submission process.
