Timing aspects of systems from a variety of computer science domains
have been treated independently by different communities. Researchers
interested in semantics, verification and performance analysis study
models such as timed automata and timed Petri nets, the digital design
community focuses on propagation and switching delays while designers of
embedded controllers have to take account of the time taken by
controllers to compute their responses after sampling the environment.

Timing-related questions in these separate disciplines do have their
particularities. However, there is a growing awareness that there are
basic problems that are common to all of them. In particular, all these
sub-disciplines treat systems whose behaviour depends upon combinations
of logical and temporal constraints; namely, constraints on the temporal
distances between occurrences of events.


The aim of FORMATS is to promote the study of fundamental and practical
aspects of timed systems, and to bring together researchers from
different disciplines that share interests in modelling and analysis of
timed systems. In 2019, FORMATS aims at being more inclusive wrt to
applications, notably real-time systems.

Typical topics include (but are not limited to):


    Foundations and Semantics:Theoretical foundations of timed systems
    and languages; comparison between different models (timed automata,
    timed Petri nets, hybrid automata, timed process algebra, max-plus
    algebra, probabilistic models).


    Methods and Tools:Techniques, algorithms, data structures, and
    software tools for analyzing timed systems and resolving temporal
    constraints (scheduling, worst-case execution time analysis,
    optimization, model checking, testing, constraint solving, etc.).


    Applications:Adaptation and specialization of timing technology in
    application domains in which timing plays an important role
    (real-time software, hardware circuits, and problems of scheduling
    in manufacturing and telecommunication).
