Timing aspects of systems from a variety of computer science domains
have been treated independently by different communities. Researchers
interested in semantics, verification and performance analysis study
models such as timed automata and timed Petri nets, the digital design
community focuses on propagation and switching delays, while designers
of embedded controllers have to take account of the time taken by
controllers to compute their responses after sampling the environment.

Timing-related questions in these separate disciplines do have their
particularities. However, there is a growing awareness that there are
basic problems that are common to all of them. In particular, all
these sub-disciplines treat systems whose behavior depends upon
combinations of logical and temporal constraints; namely, constraints
on the temporal distances between occurrences of events. The aim of
FORMATS is to promote the study of fundamental and practical aspects
of timed systems, and to bring together researchers from different
disciplines that share interests in modeling and analysis of timed
systems. Typical topics include (but are not limited to):

- Foundations and Semantics: Theoretical foundations of timed systems
and languages; comparison between different models (timed automata,
timed Petri nets, hybrid automata, timed process algebra, max-plus
algebra, probabilistic models, type systems).

- Methods and Tools: Techniques, algorithms, data structures, and
software tools for analyzing timed systems and resolving temporal
constraints (scheduling, worst-case execution time analysis,
optimization, model checking, testing, constraint solving).

- Applications: Adaptation and specialization of timing technology in
application domains in which timing plays an important role (e.g.
real-time software, hardware circuits, and problems of scheduling in
manufacturing and telecommunication).
