The aim of the ERCIM FMICS workshop series is to provide a forum for
researchers who are interested in the development and application of
formal methods in industry. In particular, these workshops bring
together scientists and engineers that are active in the area of
formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the
industrial usage of these methods.
These workshops also strive to promote research and development for the
improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.
Topics include, but are not restricted to:
- Design, specification, code generation and testing based on formal
- Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis,
    certification, debugging, learning, optimization and transformation
    of complex, distributed, real-time systems and embedded systems.
- Verification and validation methods that address shortcomings
    of existing methods with respect to their industrial applicability
    (e.g., scalability and usability issues).
- Tools for the development of formal design descriptions.
- Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal
    methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research
- Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process
    and associated costs.
- Application of formal methods in standardization and industrial

Submissions must be made electronically.

Papers should be up to 16 pages in LNCS format, with the names and
affiliations of the authors and a clear and informative
abstract. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked
appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the program
committee. All submissions must report on original research.

Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or
conference with published proceedings and must not be concurrently
submitted to any other peer-reviewed workshop, symposium, conference
or archival journal. Any partial overlap with any such published or
concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.

Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical
results (such as scalability of methods), or provide specific motivation
for further research and development.

Publication of the workshop proceedings in the Springer series Lecture No
tes in Computer Science (LNCS) is envisaged.

FMICS 2009 is part of the first Formal Methods Week (FMweek), which will
bring together a choice of events in the area, including FM 2009 (16th
symposium on Formal Methods), TESTCOM/FATES (conference on Testing of
Communicating Systems and workshop on Formal Approaches to Testing of
Software), FORMATS (Formal Modelling and Analysis of Timed Systems),
PDMC (Parallel and Distributed Methods of verifiCation), and the REFINE
Workshop. For the latest information on FMweek, please visit
