 Call for Papers: SETTA 2014
 Symposium on Dependable Software Engineering:
 Theories, Tools and Applications
 Nanjing University
 August 14, 2014 to August 17, 2014
 February 8, 2014 Abstracts
 February 15, 2014 Submission of papers
 April 25, 2014 Notification to authors
 TBD 2014 Camera-ready versions
 The aim of the symposium is to bring together international
 researchers and practitioners in the field of formal software
 engineering methods. Its focus is on clarifying the relation between
 formal methods and advanced software technologies, especially for
 engineering complex, large-scale artifacts like cyber-physical
 systems, networks of things, enterprise systems, or cloud-based
 services. Contributions relating to formal methods or integrating
 them with software engineering, as well as papers advancing
 scalability or widening the scope of formal methods to new design
 goals are especially welcome.
 Being hosted in China, the symposium will also provide a platform for
 building up research collaborations between the rapidly growing
 Chinese computer science community and its international
 counterpart. The symposium will support this process through dedicated
 events and therefore welcomes both young researchers considering
 international collaboration in formal methods and established researchers
 looking for international cooperation and willing to attract new
 colleagues to the domain.
 Authors are invited to submit papers on original research, industrial
 applications, or position papers proposing challenges in fundamental
 research and technology. The latter two types of submissions are
 expected to contribute to the development of formal methods either by
 substantiating the advantages of integrating formal methods into the
 development cycle or through delineating need for research by
 demonstrating weaknesses of existing formal methods, especially when
 addressing new application domains.
 Submissions can take the form of either normal or short papers. Short
 papers can discuss ongoing research at an early stage, including PhD
 projects. It is planned to publish the proceedings in the Springer
 LNCS series.
 The authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to
 submit extended versions of their papers to appear in a special issue of
 the Formal Aspect Computing journal.
 Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 * Formal aspects of engineering approaches to software and system quality
 * Integration of formal methods into software engineering practice
 * Requirements analysis, specification and design
 * Formal methods for embedded, real-time, hybrid, and cyber-physical systems
 * Formal methods for service-oriented and cloud computing
 * Formal aspects of security and mobility
 * Formal aspects of safety, reliability, robustness, and fault-tolerance
 * Model checking, theorem proving, and decision procedures
 * Integration of empirical analysis techniques with formal methods
 * Contract-based engineering of components, systems, and systems of systems
 * Formal and engineering aspects of software evolution and maintenance
 * Scalable approaches to formal system analysis and design
 * Tool integration
 * Applications of formal methods and industrial experience reports
