The 2nd Formal Integrated Development Environment Workshop (F-IDE 2015)

                F-IDE 2015 - CALL FOR PAPERS

       The 2nd Formal Integrated Development Environment Workshop
                           (F-IDE 2015)
                   22 June 2015, Oslo, Norway


The 2nd Formal Integrated Development Environment Workshop (F-IDE 2015) will be held
in Oslo, Norway, in June, 2015.

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

The workshop is opened to contributions on all aspects of a system development
process, including specification, design, implementation, analysis and
documentation. It should allow the presentation of tools, methods, techniques and
experiments. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

– F-IDE building: design and integration of languages, compilation
– How to make high-level logical and programming concepts palatable to industrial
– Integration of Object-Oriented and modularity features
– Integration of static analyzers
– 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

Papers must be written in English, not exceed 15 pages in LNCS format, not counting
references, and follow the FM 2015 Format and Submission Guidelines.

They can be:
- Research papers providing new concepts and results
- Position papers and research perspectives
- Experience reports
- Tool presentations

Papers can be submitted through Easychair:

- Preliminary proceedings, including all the papers selected for the workshop, will
be available electronically at the workshop.
- Post proceedings are under consideration as Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical
Computer Science (ETPCS) proceedings.
