The 5th IEEE International Workshop on Formal Methods Integration - FMi 2017

In conjunction with the 18th IEEE IRI 2017

San Diego, USA, August 4-6, 2017


Formal methods seek to contribute to the engineering of dependable systems
by applying sound techniques based on 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 is intended to support coherent
specification and analysis of different aspects of a system. 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:

-          component-based specification and analysis,

-          integrated software/hardware specification and analysis,

-          hybrid and embedded systems modeling and analysis,

-          object and multi-agent systems modeling and analysis,

-          requirement specification and analysis,

-          software and hardware specification, verification, and

-          theorem proving and decision procedures,

-          formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance,

-          formal methods for re-engineering and reuse,

-          formal languages integration,

-          semi-formal (UML, SysML, …) and formal model integration,

-          informal and formal language integration,

-          integration of formal methods into software engineering practice,

-          integrated analysis techniques,

-          tools integration,

-          integration of formal methods in education,

-          integration of formal methods in health,

-          integration of formal methods in industry,

-          integration of formal methods in security.

*Important Dates           *

Abstract submission deadline: March 15, 2017
Paper submission deadline: March 25, 2017
Paper notification: April 25, 2017

*Paper Submission       *

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.

*Paper Publication        *

At least one of the authors must register and present the paper, if
accepted. Registered and presented papers will be published as workshop
papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer
Society Press and included in the *IEEE Xplore Digital Library*. They will
also be invited to be expanded and submitted for possible publication
in a *special
issue of the Information Systems Frontiers journal published by Springer*
