Scope of the workshop
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:
- Tools for the design and development of formal descriptions
- Verification and validation of complex, distributed, real-time systems and embedded systems
- Verification and validation methods that aim at circumventing shortcomings of existing methods in respect to their industrial applicability
- Case studies and project reports on formal methods related projects with industrial participation (eg. safety critical systems, mobile systems, object-based distributed systems)
- Application of formal methods in standardization and industrial forums
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), Paris (July 2001), Malaga (July 2002), Trondheim (June 2003), Linz (September 2004) and Lisbon (September 2005).
