FMCAD 2019 is the nineteenth in a series of conferences on the theory and
applications of formal methods in hardware and system verification. FMCAD
provides a leading forum to researchers in academia and industry for
presenting and discussing groundbreaking methods, technologies, theoretical
results, and tools for reasoning formally about computing systems. FMCAD
covers formal aspects of computer-aided system design including
specification, synthesis, and testing.

FMCAD employs a rigorous peer-review process. Accepted papers are
through both ACM and IEEE digital libraries. In addition, published articles
are made available freely on the conference page; the authors retain the
copyright. There are no publication fees. At least one of the authors is
required to register for the conference and present the accepted paper. A
small number of outstanding FMCAD submissions will be considered for
in a Special Issue of the journal on Formal Methods in System Design (FMSD).


FMCAD welcomes submission of papers reporting original research on advances
all aspects of formal methods and their applications to computer-aided
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Model checking, theorem proving, equivalence checking, abstraction and
  reduction, compositional methods, decision procedures at the bit- and
  word-level, probabilistic methods, combinations of deductive methods
  and decision procedures.

- Synthesis and compilation for computer system descriptions, modeling,
  specification, and implementation languages, formal semantics of
  languages and their subsets, model-based design, design derivation and
  transformation, correct-by-construction methods.

- Application of formal and semi-formal methods to functional and
  non-functional specification and validation of hardware and software,
  including timing and power modeling, verification of computing systems
  on all levels of abstraction, system-level design and verification for
  embedded systems, cyber-physical systems, automotive systems and other
  safety-critical systems, hardware-software co-design and verification,
  and transaction-level verification.

- Experience with the application of formal and semi-formal methods to
  industrial-scale designs; tools that represent formal verification
  enablement, new features, or a substantial improvement in the automation
  of formal methods.

- Application of formal methods to verifying safety, connectivity and
  security properties of networks, distributed systems, smart contracts,
  blockchains, and IoT devices.


Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via EasyChair:

Two categories of papers are invited: Regular papers, and Tool & Case Study
papers. Regular papers are expected to offer novel foundational ideas,
theoretical results, or algorithmic improvements to existing methods, along
with experimental impact validation where applicable. Tool & Case Study
papers are expected to report on the design, implementation or use of
verification (or related) technology in a practically relevant context
(which need not be industrial), and its impact on design processes.

Both Regular and Tool & Case study papers must use the IEEE Transactions
format on letter-size paper with a 10-point font size. Papers in both
categories can be either 8 pages (long) or 4 pages (short) in length not
including references. Short papers that describe emerging results, practical
experiences, or original ideas that can be described succinctly are
encouraged. Authors will be required to select an appropriate paper category
at abstract submission time. Submissions may contain an optional appendix,
which will not appear in the final version of the paper. The reviewers
be able to assess the quality and the relevance of the results in the paper
without reading the appendix.

Submissions in both categories must contain original research that has not
been previously published, nor is concurrently submitted for publication.
partial overlap with published or concurrently submitted papers must be
clearly indicated. If experimental results are reported, authors are
encouraged to provide the reviewers access to their data at submission time,
so that results can be independently verified. The review process is single


Continuing the tradition of the previous years, FMCAD 2019 is hosting a
Forum that provides a platform for graduate students at any career stage to
introduce their research to the wider Formal Methods community, and solicit

Submissions for the event must be short reports describing research ideas or
ongoing work that the student is currently pursuing, and must be within the
scope of FMCAD. Work, part of which has been previously published, will be
considered; the novel aspect to be addressed in future work must be clearly
described in such cases. All submissions will be reviewed by a select group
of FMCAD program committee members.
