************************************************************
ICFEM 2011:
13th International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods
CALL FOR PAPERs
25-28 Oct 2011
Radisson BLU Hotel, Durham, UK
URL: http://www.scm.tees.ac.uk/icfem2011
************************************************************

Apologies for multiple copies!

Since 1997, ICFEM has provided a forum for those interested in the
application of formal engineering methods to computer systems.
Researchers and practitioners, from industry, academia, and government,
are encouraged to attend, and to help advance the state of the art. We
are interested in work that has been incorporated into real production
systems, and in theoretical work thatpromises to bring practical,
tangible benefit.

ICFEM 2011 is organised by Teesside University and will be held in the
historic Durham City in the North East of England
(http://www.thisisdurham.com/).


AREA AND TOPICS

Submissions related to the following principal themes are encouraged, but
any topics relevant to the field of formal methods and their support
environments will also be considered:

* Abstraction and refinement
* Formal specification and modelling
* Software verification
* Program analysis
* Software model checking
* Formal approaches to software testing
* Formal methods for object and component systems
* Concurrency and software transaction memory
* Formal methods for cloud computing
* Software inspection
* Formal methods for cyber-physical systems
* Tool development and integration
* Software safety, security and reliability
* Experiments involving verified systems
* Applications of formal methods
* Formal model-based development and code generation


SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION

Submissions to the conference must not have been published or be
concurrently
considered for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be judged on the
basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation
quality, and relevance to the conference. The proceedings will be published
in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Papers should be written in English and not exceed 16 pages in LNCS format
(see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). Submission
should be done through the ICFEM 2011 submission page
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icfem2011), handled by the
EasyChair conference system. All queries should be sent to the e-mail
address icfem2011@scm.tees.ac.uk.
