**************************************************** 
      The Eleventh NASA Formal Methods Symposium 
 
  https://robonaut.jsc.nasa.gov/R2/pages/nfm2019.html 
 
                    7 - 9 May 2019 
         Rice University, Houston, Texas, USA 
**************************************************** 
 
 
Theme of the Symposium: 
----------------------- 
The widespread use and increasing complexity of mission-critical and  
safety-critical systems at NASA and in the aerospace industry require  
advanced techniques that address these systems' specification, design,  
verification, validation, and certification requirements. The NASA  
Formal Methods Symposium (NFM) is a forum to foster collaboration  
between theoreticians and practitioners from NASA, academia, and  
industry. NFM's goals are to identify challenges and to provide  
solutions for achieving assurance for such critical systems. 
 
New developments and emerging applications like autonomous software for  
uncrewed deep space human habitats, caretaker robotics, Unmanned Aerial  
Systems (UAS), UAS Traffic Management (UTM), and the need for  
system-wide fault detection, diagnosis, and prognostics provide new  
challenges for system specification, development, and verification  
approaches. The focus of these symposiums are on formal techniques and  
other approaches for software assurance, including their theory, current  
capabilities and limitations, as well as their potential application to  
aerospace, robotics, and other NASA-relevant safety-critical systems  
during all stages of the software life-cycle. 
 
The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is an annual event organized by the  
NASA Formal Methods (NFM) Steering Committee, comprised of researchers  
spanning several NASA centers. NFM 2019  
(https://robonaut.jsc.nasa.gov/R2/pages/nfm2019.html) is being  
co-organized by Rice University and NASA- Johnson Space Center in  
Houston, TX. 
 
Topics of Interest: 
------------------- 
We encourage submissions on cross-cutting approaches that bring together  
formal methods and techniques from other domains such as probabilistic  
reasoning, machine learning, control theory, robotics, and quantum  
computing among others. 
     * Formal verification, including theorem proving, model checking,  
and static analysis 
     * Advances in automated theorem proving including SAT and SMT solving 
     * Use of formal methods in software and system testing 
     * Run-time verification 
     * Techniques and algorithms for scaling formal methods, such as  
abstraction and symbolic methods, compositional techniques, as well as  
parallel and/or distributed techniques 
     * Code generation from formally verified models 
     * Safety cases and system safety 
     * Formal approaches to fault tolerance 
     * Theoretical advances and empirical evaluations of formal methods  
techniques for safety-critical systems, including hybrid and embedded  
systems 
     * Formal methods in systems engineering and model-based development 
     * Correct-by-design controller synthesis 
     * Formal assurance methods to handle adaptive systems 
 
 
Important Dates: 
---------------- 
Abstract Submission:  7 Dec 2018 
Paper Submission:    14 Dec 2018 
Paper Notifications: 22 Feb 2019 
Camera-ready Papers: 22 Mar 2019 
Symposium:          7-9 May 2019 
 
 
Location & Cost: 
---------------- 
The symposium will take place in the McMurtry Auditorium, Rice  
University, Houston, Texas, USA, May 7--9, 2019. 
 
There will be no registration fee for participants. All interested  
individuals, including non-US citizens, are welcome to attend, to listen  
to the talks, and to participate in discussions; however, all attendees  
must register. 
 
 
Submission Details: 
------------------- 
There are two categories of submissions: 
 
    1. Regular papers describing fully developed work and complete  
results (15 pages + references) 
    2. Two categories of short papers: (6 pages + references) 
    (a) Tool Papers describing novel, publicly-available tools 
    (b) Case Studies detailing complete applications of formal methods  
to real systems with publicly-available artifacts, or substantial  
work-in-progress describing results from designing a new technique for a  
new application, with appropriate available artifacts 
 
All papers should be in English and describe original work that has not  
been published or submitted elsewhere. All submissions will be fully  
reviewed by members of the Programme Committee. Papers will appear in a  
volume of Springer's Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS), and must  
use LNCS style formatting. 
 
Artifacts enabling reproducibility of the paper's major contributions  
are strongly encouraged and will be considered in PC evaluations.  
Appendices are allowed but will be read at the discretion of the PC.  
Websites with additional artifacts, e.g., for reproducibility or  
additional correctness proofs, are encouraged. Papers should be  
submitted in PDF format here:
