**** CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ****

FM 2016: 21st International Symposium on Formal Methods

Limassol, Cyprus, 7-11 November 2016

fm2016.cs.ucy.ac.cy

Early Registration Deadline: 6 October 2016

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FM 2016, the 21st International Symposium on research and practice in Formal Methods, will be held this year on the ancient and beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Every 18 months, the FM symposium attracts practitioners and researchers from industry and academia to present and discuss the most recent results and experience in formal methods. Those who join us in Cyprus this year will enjoy a highly selective programme of papers covering the broad range of formal methods, as well as a featured track on industry practice. Workshops will provide an opportunity to work in smaller groups on current challenges; tutorials will allow the acquisition of new skills; and a doctoral symposium will offer advice and encouragement to researchers just beginning their careers in this exciting and rapidly evolving field.

The conference will take place in Limassol, Cyprus.  Limassol is the second largest city in Cyprus. It is located on the south coast of the island, between the ancient towns of Amathus and Kourion. Limassol is renowned for its extensive cultural traditions, and it offers a wide spectrum of activities and a number of museums and archaeological sites to the interested visitor. Indeed, this richly cultured, cosmopolitan, seaside city has become one of the most important tourism destinations in Cyprus. The venue of the summer school will be the 5-star St. Raphael Resort, located on one of the most renowned and largest beaches, only a short coastal drive from the lively centre of Limassol.
