Formal Methods 2014 (FM 2014)
19th International Symposium on Formal Methods
Singapore, May 14-16, 2014


FM 2014 is the nineteenth in a series of symposia organized by
Formal Methods Europe, an independent association whose aim is
to stimulate the use of, and research on, formal methods for
software development. The symposia have been notably successful
in bringing together innovators and practitioners in precise
mathematical methods for software and systems development,
industrial users, as well as researchers. Submissions are
welcomed in the form of original papers on research and
industrial experience, proposals for workshops and tutorials,
entries for the exhibition of software tools and projects, and
reports on ongoing doctoral work.


It will have the goal of highlighting the development and
application of formal methods in connection with a variety of
disciplines such as medicine, biology, human cognitive modeling,
human automation interactions and aeronautics, among others. FM
2014 particularly welcomes papers on techniques, tools and
experiences in interdisciplinary frameworks, as well as on
experience with practical applications of formal methods in
industrial and research settings, experimental validation of
tools and methods as well as construction and evolution of
formal methods tools. The broad topics of interest for FM 2014
include but are not limited to:

Interdisciplinary formal methods: techniques, tools and
experiences demonstrating formal methods in interdisciplinary

Formal methods in practice: industrial applications of formal
methods, experience with introducing formal methods in industry,
tool usage reports, experiments with challenge problems. Authors
are encouraged to explain how the use of formal methods has
overcome problems, lead to improvements in design or provided
new insights.

Tools for formal methods: advances in automated verification and
model-checking, integration of tools, environments for formal
methods, experimental validation of tools. Authors are
encouraged to demonstrate empirically that the new tool or
environment advances the state of the art.

Role of formal methods in software and systems engineering:
development processes with formal methods, usage guidelines for
formal methods, method integration. Authors are encouraged to
demonstrate that process innovations lead to qualitative or
quantitative improvements.

Theoretical foundations: all aspects of theory related to
specification, verification, refinement, and static and dynamic
analysis. Authors are encouraged to explain how their results
contribute to the solution of practical problems.


Papers will be evaluated by at least three members of the
Program Committee. They should be in Springer LNCS format and
describe, in English, original work that has not been published
or submitted elsewhere. Papers should be submitted through the
FM 2014 EasyChair web site at:

Accepted papers will be published in the Symposium Proceedings,
to appear in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science.


Abstract due: November 7, 2013
Full papers due: November 14, 2013
Acceptance / Rejection Notification: February 1, 2014
Industry Track Submission: January 16, 2014
Industry Track Notification: February 16, 2014
Camera-ready: February 25, 2014
Main Conference Date: May 14-16, 2014
Tutorial / Workshops Date: May 12-13, 2014


The organizing committee of FM 2014 thus invites proposals for
half- or full-day tutorials in the broad area of formal methods.
Proposals from industry practitioners or academics are very
welcome; proposals for tutorials on applications of formal
methods to challenging problems are particularly welcome. All
tutorials should focus on providing participants with the
opportunity to learn new techniques, new application domains,
and insightful uses of formal methods. Details on the call for
tutorials can be found at

We are also inviting people to submit proposals for workshops.
The purpose of the workshops is to provide an informal setting
for workshop participants to discuss technical issues, exchange
research ideas, and to discuss and/or demonstrate applications.
These workshops may be driven by fundamental academic interests
or by needs from specific application domains. We encourage a
diversity of workshops relating to different varieties of formal
models. Details on the call for workshops can be found at

A Doctoral Symposium will be held on 12-13th May in conjunction
with the FME Symposium FM2014. This aims to provide a helpful
environment in which selected doctoral students can present and
discuss their ongoing work, meet other students working on
similar topics and receive helpful advice and feedback from a
panel of researchers and academics. Details on the call for
doctoral sympisum can be found at
