- F-IDE 2014 -

First International Workshop on Formal Integrated Development
Environment 
(Satellite event of ETAPS)
April 6th, 2014, Grenoble, France
http://www.ensta-paristech.fr/~etaps/


WORKSHOP AIM
High levels of safety, security and also privacy standards require the
use of formal methods to specify and  develop  compliant  software
(sub)systems.  Any standard comes with an assessment process, which
requires a complete documentation of the application  in order to ease
the justification of design choices and the review of code and proofs.

Ideally, an F-IDE dedicated to such developments  should comply with
several requirements. The first one is to associate a logical theory
with a programming language, in a way that facilitates the tightly
coupled  handling  of specification properties and program constructs.
The second one is to  offer a  language/environment simple enough to be
usable by most developers, even if they are not fully acquainted with
higher-order logics or set theory,  in particular by making development
of proofs  as easy as possible. The third one is to offer automated
management of application documentation.  It may also  be expected that
developments done with such an F-IDE are reusable and modular.
Moreover, tools for testing and static analysis may be embedded in this
F-IDE,  to help address most steps of the assessment process.


TOPICS

We encourage submissions presenting and discussing research efforts as
well as experience returns on design, development, usage of tools aiming
at making formal methods "easier" for non-specialists. 

In this context, the topics include (but are not limited to):

- F-IDE building : design and integration of languages, compilation
- How to make high-level logical and programming concepts palatable to
industrial developers
- Integration of Object-Oriented  and modularity features
- Integration of static analysers
- Integration of automatic proof tools,  theorem provers and testing
tools
- Documentation tools
- Impact of tools on certification
- Experience reports of developing  F-IDE
- Experience reports of  using F-IDE
- Experience reports of  formal methods-based assessments of industrial
applications


We encourage not only mature research results, submissions presenting 
innovative ideas and early results are also of interest.


SUBMISSIONS

Papers  (6-14 pages in length), following EPCTS format are expected.
They can be:
