 FM 2016 is the 21st in a series of symposia organized by Formal Methods Europe,
 an independent association whose aim is to stimulate the use of, and research
 on, formal methods for software development. The symposia have been notably
 successful in bringing together innovators and practitioners in precise
 mathematical methods for software and systems development, industrial users, as
 well as researchers. The industry track of FM 2016 welcomes short papers and
 extended abstracts describing industrial applications of formal methods,
 experience with introducing formal methods in industry, tool usage reports,
 experiments with challenge problems. Authors are encouraged to explain how the
 use of formal methods has overcome engineering and qualification problems, led
 to improvements in design or provided new insights.
 A survey of industrial applications of formal methods has been conducted and is
 continuously being extended (now with more than 100 entries). It would be
 welcome if submissions to the industrial track also would take the time to
 supply an entry to this survey (http://fm2016.cs.ucy.ac.cy/img/
 EntryTemplate.xlsx). We hope during the industry track of FM 2016 to provide a
 new status of this survey so you will be able to see how your findings compare
 to others.
 Industry track papers should not exceed 6 pages (including appendices and
 references) for short papers. Accepted short papers will be published in the
 Symposium Proceedings, to appear in Springer s Lecture Notes in Computer
 Science. Extended abstracts of 2-4 pages are also welcome and will be added in
 a conference report.
 Submitted papers (written in English) should not have been published or
 submitted elsewhere concurrently for publication, shall not contain any
 proprietary information that might hamper publication (to be checked and
 confirmed by author prior to submission) and should be in Springer s LNCS
 format. All submissions will be evaluated by at least three members of the
 industry track program committee. Accepted papers shall be presented at the
 conference in person by at least one of the authors of the paper. Papers should
 be submitted through the FM 2016 Industry Track EasyChair web site.

 A number of invited papers from the industry are also expected for presentation
 in the Industry track of FM 2016.
