            5th NASA Formal Methods Symposium (NFM) 2013
                      NASA Ames Research Center
                       Moffett Field, CA, USA
                           May 14-16, 2013 
 Theme of the Conference: 
 The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is a forum for theoreticians and
 practitioners from academia, industry, and government, with the goals
 of identifying challenges and providing solutions to achieving
 assurance in mission- and safety-critical systems. Within NASA, for
 example, such systems include autonomous robots, separation assurance
 algorithms for aircraft, Next Generation Air Transportation (NextGen),
 and autonomous rendezvous and docking for spacecraft. Moreover,
 emerging paradigms such as code generation and safety cases are
 bringing with them new challenges and opportunities. The focus of the
 symposium will be on formal techniques, their theory, current
 capabilities, and limitations, as well as their application to
 aerospace, robotics, and other safety-critical systems.
 Topics of Interest: 
     * Formal verification, including theorem proving, model checking,
       and static analysis
     * Techniques and algorithms for scaling formal methods, including
       but not restricted to abstraction and symbolic methods,
       compositional techniques, as well as parallel and distributed
     * Use of formal methods in automated software engineering and
       testing Model-based development
     * Formal program synthesis
     * Runtime monitoring and verification
     * Formal approaches to fault tolerance
     * Formal analysis of cyber-physical systems, including hybrid and
       embedded systems
     * Formal methods in systems engineering, modeling, requirements
       and specifications
     * Applications of formal methods to aerospace systems
     * Use of formal methods in safety cases
     * Use of formal methods in human-machine interaction analysis
     * Formal methods for multi-core, GPU-based implementations
     * Application of formal methods to emerging technologies, e.g.,
       mobile applications, autonomous systems, web-based application

 NFM 2013 will be held at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA
 on May 14 to 16, 2013. There will not be a registration fee charged to
 participants. All interested individuals, including non-US citizens,
 are welcome to attend, to listen to the talks, and to participate in
 discussions; however, all attendees must register. Note that the 
 registration site will close on April 16th, 2013. This is a firm
 deadline. There will be no on-site registrations as a badge is
 required to access the conference site.
