Established in 2015 and normally given every three years for technical achievements in advancing, applying, and promoting formal methods, the Formal Methods Europe (FME) Fellowship rewards scientific breakthroughs and pioneering work that have made a difference to the world through advances in formal methods. This includes contributions in the following areas:
The recipient of the fellowship will clearly have made a difference in one or more of these areas, and this will be supported by concrete evidence.
Porto, Portugal, October 7-11, 2019
FM 2019 is the 23rd international symposium in a series organised by Formal Methods Europe (FME), an independent association whose aim is to stimulate the use of, and research on, formal methods for software development. Every 10 years the symposium is organised as a World Congress. Twenty years after FM’99 in Toulouse, and ten years after FM’09 in Eindhoven, FM 2019 is the 3rd World Congress on Formal Methods. This is reflected in a Program Committee with members from over 40 countries. Thus, FM 2019 will be both an occasion to celebrate and a platform for enthusiastic researchers and practitioners from a diversity of backgrounds to exchange their ideas and share their experience.
FME has established a formal methods teaching committee to support a worldwide improvement in learning formal methods, mainly by teaching but also via self-learning.
FM 2019 will be the 3rd World Congress on Formal Methods
and will take place in Porto, Portugal, 7-11 October 2019.
Prof. Manfred Broy, professor emeritus at the Technical University of Munich (DE), has been awarded the FME Fellowship 2018. The Fellowships are awarded every three years in recognition of technical breakthroughs and pioneering work in advancing, applying, and promoting mathematically rigorous methods for the design of computing systems.
