About iFM

iFM 2017 is concerned with how the application of formal methods may 
involve modelling different aspects of a system which are best expressed 
using different formalisms. Correspondingly, different analysis 
techniques may be used to examine different system views, different 
kinds of properties, or simply in order to cope with the sheer 
complexity of the system. The iFM conference series seeks to further 
research into hybrid approaches to formal modelling and analysis; i.e., 
the combination of (formal and semi-formal) methods for system 
development, regarding modelling and analysis, and covering all aspects 
from language design through verification and analysis techniques to 
tools and their integration into software engineering practice.

Workshops can have the duration of one or two days. Prospective workshop 
organizers are requested to follow the guidelines below and are 
encouraged to contact the workshop chairs if any questions arise.

The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants with a friendly, 
interactive atmosphere for presenting novel ideas and discussing their 

The workshops take place on September 18-19, 2017.

the iFM workshop chairs, Wolfgang Ahrendt <ahrendt at chalmers.se> and 
Michael Lienhardt <michael.lienhardt at di.unito.it>.

Proposals should include:
  - The name, the duration (1 or 2 days) and the preferred date of the 
proposed workshop
  - A short description of the workshop.
  - If applicable, a description of past versions of the workshop, 
including dates, organizers, submission and acceptance counts, and

Organizers Responsibilities

The scientific responsibility of organizing a workshop is on the 
workshop organizers. In particular, they are responsible for the 
following items:
  - A workshop description (200 words) for inclusion in the iFM site.
  - Hosting and maintaining web pages to be linked from the iFM site. 
Workshop organizers can integrate their pages into the main iFM pages.
  - Workshop proceedings, if any. If there is sufficient interest, the 
iFM 2017 workshop organizers may contact the editor-in-chief of the 
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science 
(http://info.eptcs.org/) for having a common volume dedicated to the 
workshops of iFM 2017.
  - Workshop publicity (possibly including call for papers, submission 
and review process).
  - Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the iFM 
workshop chairs.


The iFM organization will provide registration and organizational 
support for the workshops (including linking from the conferences web 
sites, set-up of meeting space, on-line and on-site registration). 
Registration fees must be paid by all participants, including organizers 
and invited guests.

To cover lunches, coffee breaks and basic organizational expenses, all 
workshops will be required to charge a minimum participation fee (the 
precise amount is still to be determined). Each workshop may increase 
this fee to cover additional expenses such as publication charges, 
student scholarships, costs for invited speakers, etc. All fees will be 
collected by STILEMA S.r.l. as part of the iFM registration. STILEMA 
S.r.l. will require the workshop fees as requested by each workshop 

Evaluation Process

The proposals will be evaluated by the iFM organizing committee on the 
basis of their assessed benefit for prospective participants of iFM 
2017. Prospective organizers may wish to consult the web pages of 
previous satellite events as examples:
