CALL FOR PARTICIPATION iFM & ABZ 2012

**********************************************************************
9th International Conference on Integrated Formal Methods (iFM 2012)
3rd International Conference on ASM, Alloy, B, VDM, and Z (ABZ 2012)

Joint conferences in honour of Egon Boerger's 65th birthday, for his
contribution to state-based formal methods

18 - 21 June 2012
CNR - Pisa, Italy

**********************************************************************

The iFM and ABZ conferences are co-located in order to host a joint
conference in honour of Egon Boerger's 65th birthday. The conferences
are organized by the Formal Methods && Tools Lab at ISTI-CNR and take
place at the Area della Ricerca CNR in Pisa from 18 to 21 June.

The iFM conference series presents research on the combination of
(formal and semi-formal) methods for system development, regarding
modeling and analysis, and covers all aspects from language design
through verification and analysis techniques to tools and their
integration into software engineering practice.

The ABZ conference is dedicated to the cross-fertilization of five
related state- and machine-based formal methods, namely Abstract
State Machines, Alloy, B, VDM and Z, which share a common conceptual
foundation and are widely used in both academia and industry for the
design and analysis of hardware and software systems.
