Background and Objectives

Since it was started in Hiroshima, Japan in 1997, ICFEM has provided a
forum for both researchers and practitioners who are interested in
developing practical formal methods for software engineering or applying
existing formal techniques to improve software development process in
practice. Formal methods for the development of computer systems have
been extensively researched and studied. We now have good theoretical
understandings of how to describe what programs do, how they do it, and
why they work. A range of semantic theories, specification languages,
design techniques, verification methods, and supporting tools have been
developed and applied to the construction of programs of moderate size
that are used in critical applications. The remaining challenge now is
how to deal with problems in developing and maintaining large scale and
complex computer systems.

The goal of this conference is to bring together industrial, academic,
and government experts, from a variety of user domains and software
disciplines, to help advance the state of the art. Researchers,
practitioners, tool developers and users, and technology transfer
experts are all welcome. We are interested in work that has been
incorporated into real production systems, and in theoretical work that
promises to bring practical, tangible engineering benefits.

ICFEM 2019 will be organized and sponsored by Shenzhen University and
will be held in the attractive and enjoyable city Shenzhen during
November 5th-9th, 2019. We are looking forward to your contribution and

Scope and Topics

Submissions related to the following principal themes are encouraged,
but any topics relevant to the field of formal engineering methods and
their practical applications will also be considered.
    Abstraction, refinement and evolution
    Formal specification and modeling
    Program analysis
    Formal verification
    Model checking
    Formal approaches to software testing and inspection
    Formal methods for self-adaptive systems
    Formal methods for object-oriented systems
    Formal methods for component-based systems
    Formal methods for concurrent and real-time systems
    Formal methods for cloud computing
    Formal methods for cyber-physical systems
    Formal methods for software safety, security, reliability and
    Tool development, integration and experiments involving verified systems
    Formal methods used in certifying products under international standards
    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 (seehttp://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.htmlfor details).
Submission should be made through the ICFEM 2019 submission page
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icfem2019), handled by the
EasyChair conference management system.
