          BCS-FACS Evening Seminar Series

       Realising the Benefits of Formal Methods

                  Dr Anthony Hall

                       Consultant

                     21 June 2006
                     5.45pm start

                BCS London Offices
                First Floor,
                The Davidson Building
                5 Southampton Street
                London WC2E 7HA

What do formal methods really offer to software engineers? When should 
they be
used? Who should use them? Where do they fit into the development process?
What benefits - if any - do they really bring?

There are several quite different ways of answering these questions. I 
will take a
critical look at some of the answers that have been proposed, and in 
particular ask
whether the answers given by the formal methods research community are 
borne
out in practice.

I will describe in some detail one particular approach, Correctness by 
Construction.
This is highly successful - and I have the numbers to prove it - but it 
is deeply
unfashionable and almost nobody uses it. I will look at the reasons for 
its success
and try to understand its lack of appeal.

Finally I will look at the implications for research and development. 
Are we
researching the right topics? Are we developing the right tools? What 
are the
real grand challenges of formal methods? What is needed to bring them into
everyday use?


Refreshments will be served from 5.15pm

The seminar is free of charge and open to everyone. If you would like to 
attend,
please email Paul Boca [[log in to unmask]] your name by 18 June 2006.
Pre-registration is required, as security at the BCS Offices is tight.
