second CFP: 6th Working Formal Methods Symposium

by Vlad Rusu, May 12, 2022

FROM 2022 - Working Formal Methods Symposium
Iasi, Romania, 19-20 September 2022
in conjunction with WOLLIC 2022

FROM aims to bring together  researchers and practitioners who work on

formal  methods  by  contributing new  theoretical  results,  methods,

techniques, and frameworks, and/or make  the formal methods to work by

creating or using software tools that apply theoretical contributions.

FROM  symposiums  are organized  by  the  Faculty of  Mathematics  and

Computer  Science  of the  University  of  Bucharest, the  Faculty  of

Mathematics  and Computer  Science of  the Babes-Bolyai  University of

Cluj-Napoca, the  Faculty of  Computer Science  of the  Alexandru Ioan

Cuza University of  Iasi, and the Faculty of  Mathematics and Computer

Science of the West University of Timișoara.

FROM 2022  is the sixth event  in a yearly workshop  series. The first

edition was held in 2017 in  Bucharest, the second edition was held in

2018 in  Iaşi, the third  edition was held  in 2019 in  Timişoara. The

fourth edition was organized in Cluj-Napoca in 2020 as a virtual event

due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The fifth edition (2021), in Timişoara,

was also organized  as a virtual event.  The program  of the symposium

includes invited  lectures and  regular contributions.  Submissions on

the general  topics of  formal methods, theoretical  computer science,

logic and applications are welcome.

Accepted research  papers should  be presented  at the  conference and

will be  published in the  Electronic Proceedings in  Computer Science

series We  intend to invite authors  of the best

original  contributions --  regular  or short  --  to submit  extended

versions to  a special issue of  a journal. For previous  editions, we

published  selected  papers  in  Fundamenta  Informaticae  (2018)  and

Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in Programming (2019).




Papers of  up to  16 pages  prepared according  to the  EPTCS template  must  be   submitted  electronically  through


Research papers  must contain original research  results not submitted

and  not published  elsewhere. Authors  who  want to  present work  in

progress or  discuss new aspects or  a survey of their  older research

results at the workshop are welcome to submit an extended abstract (up

to 8  pages). Papers  will be  refereed and accepted  on the  basis of

their scientific merit and relevance to the symposium's topics.



The planned registration fee  is  100  Euro.  It  covers  the symposium

kit, refreshments during breaks, lunches, symposium dinner, publication.
