4th International Workshop on Foundations of Interface Technologies

        Satellite Workshop at ETAPS 2012
        Tallinn, Estonia, March 25, 2012



- Workshop Topic:

Component-based design is widely considered as a major approach to
developing complex systems in a time- and cost-effective way. Component
interfaces are central in this approach and summarize the externally
visible properties of a component which can be syntactic properties such
as operation signatures, but can also be behavioral and extra-functional
properties such as quality of service, security and dependability. In
recent years, rich interface formalisms have been proposed to specify
legal sequences of messages, or resource and timing constraints. The
challenge is to achieve compositionality - the key requirement for the
effective analysis and prediction of global system behavior based on
individual component behaviors.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are
interested in the formal underpinnings of interface technologies.
