                            CALL FOR TUTORIAL PAPERS

4th International Symposium on			            1 - 4 November 2005
Formal Methods for Objects and Components                        CWI, Amsterdam
(FMCO 2005)                                                     The Netherlands


The FMCO symposium is an annual international event on the application and 
development of formal methods in software engineering, with a special focus on 
component-based and object-oriented software systems. We invite submissions of 
tutorial papers on topics that fit under that rubric. Suggested, but not 
exclusive, topics of interest for submissions include: models and logics for 
object-oriented and component-based systems; formal aspects of analysis of 
large systems; prediction, analysis and monitoring of extra-functional system 
properties; applications of modal logics, temporal logics, and model checking 
for the specification and verification of object-oriented languages; type 
systems and type theory for objects and components; probabilistic systems, 
process calculi, and semantics of object and component oriented languages; 
reasoning about security, trustworthiness and dependability of component-based 

Important Dates
Authors are invited to submit a title and a short abstract of one or two pages 
providing a tutorial perspective on research results or experiences related to 
the topics above.  Accepted abstracts will be presented at the symposium and 
an extended tutorial paper of about 20 pages in LNCS style will be refereed  
and eventually published together with the contributions of the keynote 
speakers after the symposium, in a proceeding of Lecture Notes in Computer 
Science by Springer-Verlag. Selected papers will be published in revised and 
extended version in the Elsevier journal Theoretical Computer Science.

Title and short abstract due:   5 Sep 2005  Tutorial paper due:     28 Feb 2006
Author notification:            1 Oct 2005  Author notification:    15 Apr 2006
Symposium:                    1-4 Nov 2005  Camera-ready paper due: 15 May 2006

The short abstracts must be in English and provide sufficient details to allow 
the organizing committee and the advisory board to assess the merits of the 
related tutorial papers. One author of each accepted abstract will be expected 
to present the tutorial at the symposium. The tutorial papers must be 
unpublished and not submitted for publication, but may contain previously 
published material. Short abstracts and tutorial papers must be submitted 
electronically to F.S. de Boer (frb at cwi.nl) or 
M.M. Bonsangue (marcello at liacs.nl).

The symposium is a four days event organised to provide an atmosphere that 
fosters collaborative work, discussions and interactions. Lectures are given 
by the keynote speakers listed below and by authors of accepted abstract.
