presents

National Workshop/Conference on Formal Methods-NCFM

October 15th – 17th, 2014 at MRC Auditorium, IISc, Bengaluru

Theme


Over the years systems have become more and more complex by design and functionality. Some of the unique features of these systems are:

  1. Large-scale system of systems
  2. Tight coupling (coordination) between computational and physical resources

Exceeds today's systems in adaptability, autonomy, efficiency, functionality, reliability, safety, and usability.

With the advancement in the technologies, safety and security are key issues and there is a need to use effective, correct and reliable approaches to design, develop and qualify this complex, high assurance system software's within the time-schedule and budget. Formal methods are proving effective in this. Hence there is need to bring together scientists, academicians & industrialists active in the field of formal methods and willing to exchange their experience in the industrial usage of formal methods.

History


National workshop-cum-Conference on Formal Methods-NCFM, being the first of its kind intends to 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. FMSE (Formal Methods Software Engineering) strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications. This is an initiative from the Special interest Group-SIG on Formal Methods.


Objectives


Contributions are invited from academia, industry and R&D organizations working in the field of formal methods. The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:


  1. Integrating formal methods in software engineering process
  2. Role of formal methods in design & development of embedded systems
  3. Formal verification & validation
  4. Theoretical advances and empirical evaluations of formal methods
  5. Formal approaches to fault tolerance
  6. Code generation from formally verified models
  7. Techniques and algorithms for scaling formal methods, such as abstraction and symbolic methods, compositional techniques, as well as parallel and distributed techniques
  8. Safety cases using formal methods
  9. Integrated formal workbench
  10. Application of formal methods in safety critical applications

Find out what Tutorials and Case Studies we will be having, from 15-17 October 2014 by checking our "Speaker Feature".
