The IEEE International Workshop on
Formal Methods Integration – FMi 2013

In conjunction with the 14th IEEE IRI 2013
San Francisco, USA
August 14-16, 2013

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 papers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- scalable formal methods
- component-based specification and analysis
- component-based development
- integrated software architectures and their description languages
- hybrid and embedded systems modeling
- 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
- method integration
- analysis technique integration
- safety-critical and fault-tolerant systems modeling
- object and multi-agent system modeling
- requirement analysis and specification
- software specification, verification, and validation
- model checking for software and hardware systems
- theorem proving and decision procedures
- software and hardware analysis
- interactive systems and human error analysis
- formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance
- formal methods for testing, re-engineering and reuse
- CASE tools and tool integration
- applications of formal methods and industrial case studies
- education and formal methods
- industrial applications of formal methods
- experiments with challenge problems
- integration of tools
- experimental validation of tools

Important dates
Abstract Submission: May 19, 2013
Paper submission: May 25, 2013
Paper notification: June 14, 2013
Final version paper: June 21, 2013
Author registration due: June 21, 2013

Paper submission
Authors are invited to submit papers 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.

Camera-ready paper submission
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 Springer journal (pending).
