Paper Submission: 1 May 2009

SBMF is a *Qualis A* Brazilian Conference


SBMF 2009 is the twelfth of a series of events devoted to the
dissemination of the development and use of formal methods for the
construction of high quality computational systems. It is now a
well-established event, with a very good national and international
reputation.  SBMF is the main formal methods event in Brazil,
qualified as one of the highest quality national events by Brazilian
research agencies.

Besides technical sessions, the symposium presents invited speakers
from the international community.

Previous proceedings have appeared in Springer's Lecture Notes in
Computer Science series (LNCS ­ Qualis A).  Selected high-quality
technical papers from SBMF 2008 are being considered for publication
in a Special Issue of Science of Computer Programming, Elsevier.  For
SBMF 2009, a similar process will take place.

For the first time, there will be an associated Workshop for Theses
and Dissertations in formal methods.  The WTD is a student forum for
bringing together graduate students that research on topics related to
formal methods.  The workshop's aim is to present and discuss
students' proposed contributions, preliminary results, and possible
future directions for their research.

In 2009, SBMF will be held in the small touristic town of Gramado, in
Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.  The event will be organized by the
Institute of Informatics of the Federal University of Rio Grande do
Sul (UFRGS).

This year the symposium will be co-located with the Brazilian
Symposium on Programming Languages and the Brazilian Workshop on
Systematic and Automated Software Testing, which will happen in the
same week and in the same venue.

The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity for researchers
with a broad range of interests in formal methods to discuss recent
developments in this field.  The topics include, but are not limited
to, the following:

- Well-founded specification and design languages
- Formal aspects of popular languages and methodologies
- Logics and semantics of programming and specification languages
- Reusable domain theories
- Type systems and category theory in computer science
- Computational complexity of methods and models
- Computational models
- Rewriting systems
- Formal methods integration
- Formal methods for software/hardware development
- Formal methods applied to model-driven engineering
- Code generation
- Formal design methods
- Specification and modeling
- Abstraction, modularization and refinement techniques
- Program and test synthesis
- Techniques for correctness by construction
- Formal methods and models for objects, aspects and component systems
- Formal methods and models for real-time, hybrid and critical systems
- Formal methods and models for service-oriented systems
- Models of concurrency, security and mobility
- Model checking
- Theorem proving
- Static analysis
- Formal techniques for software testing
- Software certification
- Formal techniques for software inspection.
- Teaching of, for and with formal methods
- Experience reports on the use of formal methods
- Industrial case studies
- Tools supporting the formal development of computational systems
- Development methodologies with formal foundations
- Software evolution based on formal methods

Papers with a strong emphasis on Formal Methods, whether practical or
theoretical, are invited for submission.

The following types of submissions are expected:

- Technical papers: unpublished and original work that have clear
  contributions to the state of the art on the theory and practice of
  formal methods.  Papers will be judged on the basis of originality,
  relevance, technical soundness and presentation quality.  Papers
  must be written in English and not exceed 16 pages in the LNCS
  format (see http://www.springer.com/lncs).

  Extended versions of all accepted papers will be eligible for
  selection for a journal special issue.  Only papers originally
  submitted in English are subject to this publication.

- WTD papers: Master and PhD students are invited to submit papers
  that give a report on the research they are developing.  The papers
  must correspond to individual work but may be co-authored by the
  advisor.  Papers must be no longer than 8 pages, including all
  figures, tables and references.

Every accepted paper MUST have at least one author registered to the
symposium by the time the camera-ready paper is submitted; the author
is also expected to attend the symposium and present the paper. Papers
originally MUST be presented in English.
