International Workshop on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems and Automated Verification of Critical Systems


26-29 September 2016
CNR, Pisa, Italy

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Call for Papers 

The aim of the FMICS workshop series is to provide a forum for researchers who
are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry.
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. In 2016, FMICS and
AVoCS join their forces to hold a workshop combining their themes on formal methods and automated verification. For FMICS, this will be the 21st, for AVoCS
the 16th edition.

In particular, FMICS-AVoCS 2016 aims to bring together scientists and engineers
that are active in the area of formal methods, develop tools and techniques for the
automated verification of critical systems, and are interested in exchanging their
experiences in the industrial usage of these methods and tools.

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

TOPICS of INTEREST include (but are not limited to):


Full paper submissions must describe authors' original research work and results.
Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or conference with
published proceedings and must not be concurrently submitted to any other peerreviewed
 workshop, symposium, conference or archival journal. Any partial overlap
with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.

Full paper submissions should clearly demonstrate relevance to industrial application.
Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical results
(such as scalability of methods) or provide specific motivation for further research
and development.

Full paper submissions should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the LNCS
style (Springer). All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee who
will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and
applicability of the presented ideas and results.

Research ideas: FMICS-AVoCS 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 Program Committee will select research ideas on
the basis of submitted abstracts according to their significance and general interest.
Abstracts of research ideas should not exceed 3 pages and they will not be part of
the published proceedings.

Full papers and research ideas must be written in English and should be submitted as
Portable Document Format (PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site:


The workshop proceedings will be published by Springer in their LNCS series, while
authors of the best full papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a
special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer.
