                 Call for Papers: FORMALISE 2019 
                 7th International Conference on 
      Formal Methods in Software Engineering (27th May 2019) 
   co-located with ICSE 2019 (May 25th–May 31st), Montreal, Canada 
                   http://www.formalise.org/ 
 
INTRODUCTION 
 
The software industry has a long-standing and well-earned reputation for  
failing to deliver high-quality software. Much progress has been  
achieved from the early days of software development; still, nowadays,  
even considering the state of the art of the technologies used, the  
success of software projects is often not guaranteed. Many of the  
approaches used for developing large, complex software system are still  
not able to ensure the correct behavior -- and the general quality -- of  
the delivered product, despite the efforts of the (often very qualified  
and skilled) software engineers involved. This is where formal methods  
can play a significant role. Indeed, they have been developed to provide  
the means for greater precision and thoroughness in modeling, reasoning  
about, validating, and documenting the various aspects of software  
systems during their development. When carefully applied, formal methods  
can aid all aspects of software creation: user requirement formulation,  
design, implementation, verification/testing, and the creation of  
documentation. 
 
However, after decades of research, and despite significant advancement,  
formal methods are still not widely used in industrial software  
development. We believe that a closer integration of formal methods in  
software engineering can help increase the quality of software  
applications, and at the same time highlight the benefits of formal  
methods in terms also of the generated return on investment (ROI). 
 
The main objective of the conference is to foster the integration  
between the formal methods and the software engineering communities, to  
strengthen the -- still too weak -- links between them, and to stimulate  
researchers to share ideas, techniques, and results, with the ultimate  
goal to propose novel solutions to the fraught problem of improving the  
quality of software systems. 
 
Originally a successful satellite workshop of ICSE, since 2018 FormaliSE  
is organised as a 1-day conference co-located with ICSE. FormaliSE 2019  
will take place on May 27th, 2019, in Montreal, Canada. 
 
Areas of interest include but are not limited to: 
 
- verification and validation of cyber-physical systems, IoT systems,  
and autonomous systems; 
- integration of FMs with the rest of the software development lifecycle; 
- use of formal methods in Continuous Integration & Deployment contexts; 
- rigorous software engineering approaches and their tool support; 
- model-based approaches, including model-driven development; 
- scalability of FM applications; 
- prescriptive/objective guidance in the use of FMs; 
- FMs in a certification context; 
- “lightweight” or usable FMs; 
- formal approaches to safety and security-related issues; 
- requirements formalization, formal specification, and verification; 
- performance analysis based on formal approaches; 
- case studies developed/analyzed with formal approaches; 
- success stories and/or ability of FMs to handle real-world problems; 
- experimental validation; 
- application experiences. 
 
 
We invite you to submit: 
 
Full papers that must describe authors' original research work and results. 
Case study papers that should identify lessons learned, validate  
theoretical results (such as scalability of methods) or provide specific  
motivation for further research and development. 
Research ideas: FormaliSE encourages the submissions of new research  
ideas in order to stimulate discussions at the conference. 
Full and case study papers are limited to 10 pages, including all text,  
figures, tables, and appendices, while research ideas papers are limited  
to 4 pages. Papers must conform to the IEEE Conference Proceedings  
Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type,  
LaTEX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without  
including the compsoc or compsocconf option). See for details:  
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. 
 
Papers must be unpublished original work and should not be under review  
or submitted elsewhere while being under consideration. PC members will  
review all submissions. Papers will be judged on the basis of their  
clarity, relevance, originality, and contribution to the field.  
Submissions must be in English and uploaded in PDF format through the  
conference submission website at the following URL:  
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=formalise2019. 
 
Proceedings 
 
All accepted publications are published as part of the ICSE 2019  
Proceedings in the ACM and IEEE Digital Libraries. The official  
publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings  
are made available in the ACM Digital Library. The official publication  
date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published  
work. Purchase of additional pages in the proceedings is not allowed.  
Authors of accepted papers must register and present their paper at the  
conference. 
 
Important dates: 
 
Abstract submission: 11 January 2019 
Paper submission: 18 January 2019 
Notifications: 1 March 2019 
Camera ready copies: 15 March 2019 
FormaliSE conference: 27 May 2019
