FMICS-AVoCS 2016, Pisa, 26-28 September 2016

International Workshop on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems and Automated Verification of Critical Systems (FMICS-AVoCS 2016)

CNR, Pisa, Italy, 26-28 September 2016

In 2016, FMICS and AVoCS join their forces to hold a workshop combining their themes of formal methods and automated verification. For FMICS, this will be the 21st, for AVoCS the 16th edition.

The aim of the yearly workshop of the ERCIM working group FMICS is to provide a forum for researchers who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. In particular, FMICS brings together scientists and engineers that are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS workshop series also strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.

The aim of the AVoCS workshop series is to contribute to the interaction and exchange of ideas among members of the international research community on tools and techniques for the verification of critical systems. The subject is to be interpreted broadly and inclusively. It covers all aspects of automated verification, including model checking, theorem proving, SAT/SMT constraint solving, abstract interpretation and refinement pertaining to various types of critical systems which need to meet stringent dependability requirements (safety-critical, business-critical, performance-critical, etc.).

We are proud to announce the following invited speakers, which have been made possible also thanks to FME sponsoring:

Thomas Arts (QuviQ AB, Gothenburg, Sweden)
Jan Peleska (University of Bremen, Germany)

Finally, next to the full paper submissions currently under review, FMICS-AVoCS also encourages the submissions of research ideas in order to stimulate discussions at the workshop. Reports on ongoing work or surveys on work published elsewhere are welcome. The deadline for submitting research ideas is 10 August, notification 17 August. These submissions should not exceed 3 pages and they will not be part of the workshop proceedings, which will be published by Springer in their LNCS series. Authors of the best full papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of Springer’s International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer.
