CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE International Workshop on Formal Methods Integration, August 13-15, 2014 San Francisco, USA,

In conjunction with the 15th IEEE IRI 2014

Abstract Submission deadline: March 28, 2014
Paper submission deadline: April 4, 2014        
Paper notification: May 14, 2014
Camera-ready paper due: May 24, 2014
Registration due: May 24, 2014

Formal methods ensure software system reliability based on theoretical computer science 
fundamentals. Complex systems often involve different formalisms to deal with the modeling of 
their different aspects, as each formalism is specific to only some system aspects and none is 
perfectly supporting all aspect constructs and their related semantics. Accordingly, different 
analysis techniques are required to check the different system views and verify different kinds 
of properties. Formalism integration allows for accurately specifying each aspect and verifying 
its corresponding properties. The FMi workshop aims at further research into hybrid approaches to 
formal modeling and analysis. It seeks contributions from researchers and practitioners interested 
in all aspects of integrating methods, either formal or semi-formal, for system development, 
covering all engineering development phases from user requirements through design and analysis 
techniques to tools. The workshop also encourages new initiatives of building bridges between 
informal, semi-formal, and formal notations. Authors are invited to submit both research and tool 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- scalable formal methods 
- component-based specification and analysis
- integrated software/hardware architectures and their description languages 
- hybrid and embedded systems modeling and analysis
- object and multi-agent systems modeling and analysis
- requirement analysis and specification
- software and hardware specification, verification, and validation
- theorem proving and decision procedures
- formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance
- formal methods for re-engineering and reuse
- formal language integration
- programming language integration
- semi-formal (UML, SysML, ) and formal model integration
- informal and formal language integration
- integration of formal methods into software engineering practice
- secure protocol integration
- integrated analysis techniques
- tools integration
- integration of formal methods in education
- integration of formal methods in industry
- integration of formal methods in security

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Submissions 
will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the Technical Program Committee. Papers will be 
selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Only 
electronic submissions in PDF format through the EasyChair submission site: will be considered. Papers must be in 
English, up to 8 pages in IEEE format, including references and appendices. The IEEE LaTeX and 
Microsoft Word templates, as well as formatting guidelines, can be found on the paper submission 
instructions available at the main conference website. 

At least one of the authors must register and present the paper, if accepted. Registered papers 
will be published as workshop papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings published by IEEE 
Computer Society Press. Presented papers will be published by Advances in Intelligent and Soft 
Computing, edited by Springer. Besides, best papers will be invited to be expanded and considered 
for publication in a special issue of a peer reviewed journal (pending).
