Eighth International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods
1 November - 3 November 2006
University of Macau
You should prepare your slides in pdf or ppt file before the presentations.
Tuesday 31 October, 1930: Receiption and Registration at UNU-IIST
Formal methods for development of computer systems have been extensively researched and studied. We have now a good theoretical understanding of how to describe what programs do, how they do it, and why they work. A range of semantic theories, specification languages, design techniques, and verification methods and tools have been developed and applied to the construction of programs of moderate size that are used in critical applications.
The challenge now is to scale up formal methods and integrate them into engineering development processes for the correct construction and maintenance of computer systems. This requires us to improve the state of the art by researching the integration of methods and their theories, and merging them into industrial engineering practice, including new and emerging practice.
ICFEM 2006 aims to bring together those interested in the application of formal engineering methods to computer systems. Researchers and practitioners, from industry, academia, and government, are encouraged to attend, and to help advance the state of the art. We particularly encourage submissions that aim at a combination of conceptual and methodological aspects with their formal foundation and tool support. We are interested in work that has been incorporated into real production of systems, and in theoretical work that promises to bring practical, tangible benefit.
