FSEN is an international conference that aims to bring together researchers, engineers, developers, and practitioners from the academia and the industry to present and discuss their research work in the area of formal methods for software engineering. This conference seeks to facilitate the transfer of experience, adaptation of methods, and where possible, foster collaboration among different groups. The topics of interest cover all aspects of formal methods, especially those related to advancing the application of formal methods in the software industry and promoting their integration with practical engineering techniques. Following the success of the previous FSEN editions, the next edition of the FSEN conference will take place in Tehran, Iran, May 1-3, 2019.

Topics of Interest

The topics of this conference include, but are not restricted to, the following:

Models of programs and software systems

Software specification, validation, and verification

Software testing

Software architectures and their description languages

Object and multi-agent systems

Coordination and feature interaction

Integration of formal and informal methods

Integration of different formal methods

Component-based and Service-oriented software systems

Collective, self-adaptive and cyber-physical software systems

Model checking and theorem proving

Software and hardware verification

CASE tools and tool integration

Industrial Applications

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit full papers (up to 15 pages) describing original research, applications and tools; or short papers (up to 6 pages) describing ongoing research or new ideas that have not yet been fully validated. Both categories of papers must be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF using the online submission process via the Easychair conference system at the following link: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fsen2019.

Contributions must be written in English, should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS style (LaTeX2e Proceedings Templates) that can be found here and not exceed the page limit for the category (including figures and references).

Each submission will be thoroughly reviewed by at least three reviewers considering scientific originality, significance, relevance to the FSEN conference, technical soundness, clarity, self-containedness and discussion of appropriate related work.

The reviewers will be asked to rate the submissions and evaluate whether they can be accepted as:
  • Full paper for the LNCS post-proceedings and conference pre-proceedings
  • Short paper for the LNCS post-proceedings and conference pre-proceedings
  • Poster included only in the pre-proceedings

Papers accepted in the first 2 categories will be invited for presentation at the conference. Posters will be illustrated by the authors in separate poster sessions.

Submissions are required to report on original, unpublished work and should not be submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP's Author Code of Conduct).

The post-proceedings of FSEN'19 will be published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series (to be confirmed). There will be a pre-proceeding, printed locally by IPM, available at the conference. Following the tradition of FSEN, we plan to have a special issue of Science of Computer Programming journal devoted to FSEN'19 (to be confirmed). After the conference a selection of papers will be invited for this special issue. The invited papers should be extended and will undergo a new round of review by an international program committee. Please see the websites of previous editions of FSEN for more information on post-proceedings and special issues related to those editions.
