25th International Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation LOPSTR 2015 http://alpha.diism.unisi.it/lopstr15/ University of Siena, Siena, IT, July 13-15, 2015 DEADLINES Abstract submission: April 6, 2015 Paper/Extended abstract submission: April 13, 2015 ============================================================ The aim of the LOPSTR series is to stimulate and promote international research and collaboration on logic-based program development. LOPSTR is open to contributions in logic-based program development in any language paradigm. LOPSTR has a reputation for being a lively, friendly forum for presenting and discussing work in progress. Formal proceedings are produced only after the symposium so that authors can incorporate this feedback in the published papers. The 25th International Symposium on Logic-based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2015) will be held at the University of Siena, Siena, Italy; previous symposia were held in Canterbury, Madrid, Leuven, Odense, Hagenberg, Coimbra, Valencia, Lyngby, Venice, London, Verona, Uppsala, Madrid, Paphos, London, Venice, Manchester, Leuven, Stockholm, Arnhem, Pisa, Louvain-la-Neuve, and Manchester. LOPSTR 2015 will be co-located with PPDP 2015 (International ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming). Topics of interest cover all aspects of logic-based program development, all stages of the software life cycle, and issues of both programming-in-the-small and programming-in-the-large. Both full papers and extended abstracts describing applications in these areas are especially welcome. Contributions are welcome on all aspects of logic-based program development, including, but not limited to: * synthesis * transformation * specialization * composition * optimization * inversion * specification * analysis and verification * testing and certification * program and model manipulation * transformational techniques in SE * applications and tools Survey papers that present some aspects of the above topics from a new perspective, and application papers that describe experience with industrial applications are also welcome. Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings. Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions). Important Dates Abstract submission: April 6, 2015 Paper/Extended abstract submission: April 13, 2015 Notification: May 25, 2015 Camera-ready (for electronic pre-proceedings): June 15, 2015 Symposium: July 13-15, 2015 Submission Guidelines Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper (written in English) in PDF, formatted in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science style. Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations; contact author's email; abstract; and three to four keywords which will be used to assist the PC in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Page numbers should appear on the manuscript to help the reviewers in writing their report. Submissions cannot exceed 15 pages including references but excluding well-marked appendices not intended for publication. Reviewers are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without them. Papers should be submitted via the Easychair submission website for LOPSTR 2015, which you can access through the website of LOPSTR 2015. Proceedings The formal post-conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (to be confirmed).

SETTA 2015 Symposium on Dependable Software Engineering: Theories, Tools and Applications Nanjing University November 4-6, 2015 IMPORTANT DATES June 12,2015 Abstracts June 19,2015 Submission of papers August 21,2015 Notification to authors September 4,2015 Camera-ready versions KEYNOTE SPEAKERS Sanjoy Baruah, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA David Harel, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel Huimin Lin, Institute of Software, CAS, China BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The aim of the symposium is to bring together international researchers and practitioners in the field of software technology. Its focus is on formal methods and advanced software technologies, especially for engineering complex, large-scale artifacts like cyber-physical systems, networks of things, enterprise systems, or cloud-based services. Contributions relating to formal methods or integrating them with software engineering, as well as papers advancing scalability or widening the scope of rigorous methods to new design goals are especially welcome. Being hosted in China, the symposium will also provide a platform for building up research collaborations between the rapidly growing Chinese computer science community and its international counterpart. The symposium will support this process through dedicated events and therefore welcomes both young researchers considering international collaboration in formal methods and established researchers looking for international cooperation and willing to attract new colleagues to the domain. Authors are invited to submit papers on original research, industrial applications, or position papers proposing challenges in fundamental research and technology. The latter two types of submissions are expected to contribute to the development of formal methods either by substantiating the advantages of integrating formal methods into the development cycle or through delineating need for research by demonstrating weaknesses of existing technologies, especially when addressing new application domains. Submissions can take the form of either normal or short papers. Short papers can discuss ongoing research at an early stage, including PhD projects. Papers should be written in English. Regular Papers should not exceed 15 pages and Short Papers should not exceed 6 pages in LNCS format (seehttp://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). The proceedings will be published as a volume in Springer's LNCS series. The authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to appear in a special issue of the Formal Aspect Computing journal. TOPICS Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Requirements specification and analysis * Formalisms for modeling, design and implementation * Model checking, theorem proving, and decision procedures * Scalable approaches to formal system analysis * Formal approaches to simulation and testing * Integration of formal methods into software engineering practice * Contract-based engineering of components, systems, and systems of systems * Formal and engineering aspects of software evolution and maintenance * Parallel and multicore programming * Embedded, real-time, hybrid, and cyber-physical systems * Mixed-critical applications and systems * Formal aspects of service-oriented and cloud computing * Safety, reliability, robustness, and fault-tolerance * Empirical analysis techniques and integration with formal methods * Applications and industrial experience reports * Tool integration GENERAL CHAIR Jian Lv, Nanjing University, China PROGRAMME CO-CHAIRS Xuandong Li, Nanjing University, China Zhiming Liu, Birmingham City University, UK Yi Wang, Uppsala University, Sweden PUBLICITY CHAIRS Jonathan Bowen, Birmingham City University, UK Lijun Zhang, Institute of Software,Chinese Academy of Sciences, China PUBLICATION CHAIR Martin Fränzle, University of Oldenburg, Germany LOCAL ORGANIZATION CHAIR Xin Chen, Nanjing University, China PROGRAM COMMITTEE * Farhad Arbab, CWI and Leiden University,The Netherlands * Luis Barbosa, Universidade do Minho,Portugal * Jonathan Bowen, Birmingham City University,UK * Nikolaj Bjorner, Microsoft Research,USA * Michael Butler, University of Southampton,UK * Van Hung Dang, Vietnam National University,Vientam * Martin Fränzle, University of Oldenburg,Germany * Goran Frehse, Universite Joseph Fourier Grenoble 1–Verimag, France * Lindsay Groves, Victoria University of Wellington,New Zealand * Tei-Wei Guo, National Taiwan University, TW, China * Holger Hermanns, Saarland University,Germany * Ian J.

Call for Papers: FormaliSE 2015 3rd FME Workshop on Formal Methods in Software Engineering to be held on 18 May 2015 in conjunction with ICSE 2015 (May 16th?May 24th), in Florence, Italy http://www.formalise.org/ INTRODUCTION The software industry has a long-standing and well-earned reputation for failing to deliver on its promises and it is clear that still nowadays, the?success of software projects with the current technologies cannot be assured. For large complex projects, many approaches have proven inadequate to assure the correct behaviour of the delivered software, despite the efforts of the (often very skilled) software engineers involved. The lack of formalization in key places makes software engineering overly sensitive to the weaknesses that are inevitable in the complex activities behind software creation. It is an increasingly complex task to develop?large software systems because the systems are huge, with very complex behaviour, and many algorithms employed today are ?pushing the limits? of what people can comprehend. This is where formal methods (FMs) have a huge opportunity. The main goal of the workshop is to foster integration between the formal methods and the software engineering communities. AREAS OF INTEREST include but are not limited to: * integration of FMs in the software development life cycle * ability of formal methods to handle real-world problemsÿ * prescriptive/objective guidance in the use of FMs * performance analysis based on formal approaches; * formal methods in a certification context * "lightweight" or usable FMs * application experiences * formal approaches to safety and security related issues * cyber physical systems * scalability of FM applications * experimental validation * rigorous software engineering approaches and their tool support * formal approaches to safety and security related issues * case studies developed/analyzed with formal approaches The PROGRAM will start with an invited speaker, followed by presentations of submitted papers. The workshop will end with a round table discussion (PC members and workshop audience), focusing on the subjects that came up during the workshop. SUBMISSIONS are limited to 7 pages in ACM Formatting Guidelines(*) (LaTeX users, please use the "Option 2" style). They will be published as part of the (electronic) proceedings of ICSE 2013. All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished original work and should not be under review or submitted elsewhere while being under consideration. All submissions must be in English and in PDF format through online upload to the workshop submission website at the following URL: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=formalise2015 Three or four PC members will review all submissions.

MBT 2015 10th Workshop on Model-Based Testing April 18, 2015, London, UK http://mbt-workshop.org/ Satellite workshop of ETAPS 2015 CALL FOR PAPERS *MBT workshop 2015 celebrates its 10th anniversary. We invite you to * *join academicians and MBT practitioners to share the * *vision of the challenges that MBT faces, new directions in model-based * *verification and testing, and the ways to integrate MBT and advanced * *verification techniques in engineering and industrial practice.* The workshop is devoted to model-based testing of both software and hardware. Model-based testing uses models describing the required behavior of the system under consideration to guide such efforts as test selection and test results evaluation. Testing validates the real system behavior against models and checks that the implementation conforms to them, but is capable also to find errors in the models themselves. Model-based testing has gained attention with the popularization of models in software/hardware design and development. Of particular importance are formal models with precise semantics, such as state-based formalisms, algebraic specifications, or other mathematical descriptions of possible system behavior. Testing with such models allows one to detect subtle bugs and at the same time to measure the degree of the product's conformance with the model. Recently model-based testing get particular importance in such domains as security testing and testing of hybrid systems due to their inherent complexity. Techniques to support model-based testing are drawn from diverse areas, like deductive verification, model checking, constraint solving, control and data flow analysis, grammar analysis, Markov processes, etc. The intent of this workshop is to bring together researchers and users of model-based testing techniques and tools to discuss the state of the art in theory, applications, tools, and industrialization of model-based testing and related domains. The workshop proceedings will appear in EPTCS. SUBMISSION TOPICS Original submissions are solicited from representatives of both industry and academia. They are invited to present their work, plans, and views related to model-based testing. The topics of interest include but are not limited to: * Online and offline test sequence generation methods and tools * Test data selection methods and tools * Model-based test coverage metrics * Automatic domain/partition analysis * Combination of formal verification and testing * Test oracle construction techniques * Scenario based test generation * Language/technology support for testing, domain-specific testing languages * Formalisms and theories of model-based testing * Using high-level models (in SysML, AADL, etc.) for testing * Runtime verification and model-based testing * Application of model checking techniques in testing * Use of constraint solving and constraint inference in testing * Game-theoretic and probabilistic approaches to test selection * Model-based security testing, testing of other non-functional requirements * Model-based testing of hybrid and cyber-physical systems * Model-based testing of product lines * Problems and achievements of model-based testing in industry Positional papers on advances in model-based testing, verification, modelling of software systems are higly appreciated. IMPORTANT DATES Paper submissions: December 31, 2014 Notification of acceptance: January 23, 2015 Final versions: February 6, 2015 PAPER SUBMISSION Research papers should be limited to 15 pages in EPTCS format, describing significant research results based on sound theory or experimental assessment.

The 13th Overture WorkshopWill be held on the 23rd June 2015 in connection with the Formal Methods 2015 symposiumhttp://wiki.overturetool.org/index.php/13th_Overture_Workshop This is the 13th in a series of workshops on the Vienna Development Method (VDM)seen in the open-source Overture setting. Although VDM is one of the oldest formalmethods to have enjoyed a level of industry use, it nevertheless has a lively andyouthful research community, which has grown up around the development of theOverture open tools platform. On top of the Overture platform the Crescendo andSymphony tools from respectively the DESTECS and COMPASS projects, as well as thenew development that will take place in the new INTO-CPS project (seehttp://into-cps.au.dk/). The platform provides a vehicle for activity in modelling and analysis technology including static analysis, interpreters, test generation and execution support and model checking. The growth of this community has been greatly assisted by the Overture workshop series. There is a long tradition for having these workshops co-located with the FM symposia (2005, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2012). We did not collocate with the FM’14 symposium in Singapore since we felt that it would be hard to gather enough attendance so instead John Fitzgerald, Ken Pierce and Peter Gorm Larsen delivered a Crescendo tutorial (seeand analysis technology including static analysis, interpreters, test generation andexecution support and model checking.
