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
