Working Group on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems

Seventh International Workshop on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems (FMICS 02)

Submission deadline expired

University of Málaga (Spain)

July 12-13, 2002

Colocated with the 29th ICALP conference


The aim of the FMICS workshops is to provide a forum for researchers who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. In particular, these workshops are intended to bring together scientists who are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. These workshops also strive to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.

Topics include, but are not restricted to:

Previous workshops of the ERCIM working group on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems were held in Oxford (March 1996), Cesena (July 1997), Amsterdam (May 1998), Trento (July 1999), Berlin (April 2000), and Paris (July 2001).

The Seventh International Workshop on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems (FMICS 02) will take place in Málaga on July 12-13, 2002, in co-location with the 29th ICALP conference.




All the local organising committee members belong to the Software Engineering Group of the University of Málaga.

SUBMISSIONS (updated February 11, 2002)

Papers submitted to FMICS 02 must be in English and present original research that is unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere.

The proceedings of the workshop will be published physically by the University of Málaga and will appear in the ENTCS series (Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science). This series is published online using the facilities of Elsevier Science and is reviewed by both the Mathematical Reviews of the AMS and the ACM's Computing Reviews. Additionally, the Table of Contents and Abstracts are published in the journal Theoretical Computer Science as they appear online.

Papers submitted to FMICS 02 should be between 10 and 16 pages, with a clear abstract and list of keywords. Since papers published in ENTCS must be formatted uniformly, it is advised to follow the instructions for authors of papers in ENTCS volumes.

Papers should be submitted by e-mail to The format should be either standard PostScript (printable by any PostScript device) or PDF (Adobe's Portable Document Format). In both cases, one should use only vectorial ("Type 1") fonts and not bitmap fonts.

In case of acceptance of a paper at least one author must present the contribution at the workshop, otherwise it will be removed from the list of publications.

It is expected that a special journal issue will be devoted to a sampling of papers presented at FMICS 2002. Since 1998, six special issues related to FMICS have been published (or will appear) in prestigious journals such as Formal Aspects of Computing, Formal Methods in System Design, and Science of Computer Programming.


The workshop will take place at University of Málaga in co-location with the 29th ICALP conference. Participants should register in advance. A minimal registration fee is charged for participants proceedings, lunch and refreshments.
