Part of the FMCAD 2022 program: FMCAD Student Forum


FMCAD 2022 is the twenty-second in a series of conferences on the theory
and applications of formal methods in hardware and system
verification. FMCAD provides a leading forum to researchers in academia
and industry for presenting and discussing groundbreaking methods,
technologies, theoretical results, and tools for reasoning formally
about computing systems. FMCAD covers formal aspects of computer-aided
system design including verification, specification, synthesis, and

FMCAD employs a rigorous peer-review process. Accepted papers are
published by TU Wien Academic Press under a Creative Commons license
(the authors retain the copyright) and distributed through the IEEE
XPlore digital library. There are no publication fees. At least one of
the authors is required to register for the conference and present the
accepted paper.


FMCAD welcomes submission of papers reporting original research on
advances in all aspects of formal methods and their applications to
computer- aided design. Topics of interest include (but are not limited

- Model checking, theorem proving, equivalence checking, abstraction and
   reduction, compositional methods, decision procedures at the bit- and
   word-level, probabilistic methods, combinations of deductive methods
   and decision procedures.

- Synthesis and compilation for computer system descriptions, modeling,
   specification, and implementation languages, formal semantics of
   languages and their subsets, model-based design, design derivation and
   transformation, correct-by-construction methods.

- Application of formal and semi-formal methods to functional and
   non-functional specification and validation of hardware and software,
   including timing and power modeling, verification of computing systems
   on all levels of abstraction, system-level design and verification for
   embedded systems, cyber-physical systems, automotive systems and other
   safety-critical systems, hardware-software co-design and verification,
   and transaction-level verification.

- Experience with the application of formal and semi-formal methods to
   industrial-scale designs; tools that represent formal verification
   enablement, new features, or a substantial improvement in the
   automation of formal methods.

- Application of formal methods to verifying safety, connectivity and
   security properties of networks, distributed systems, smart contracts,
   block chains, and IoT devices.


Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via EasyChair:


Two categories of papers are invited: Regular papers, and Tool & Case
Study papers. Regular papers are expected to offer novel foundational
ideas, theoretical results, or algorithmic improvements to existing
methods, along with experimental impact validation where
applicable. Tool & Case Study papers are expected to report on the
design, implementation or use of verification (or related) technology in
a practically relevant context (which need not be industrial), and its
impact on design processes.

Both Regular and Tool & Case study papers must use the IEEE Transactions
format on letter-size paper with a 10-point font size. Papers in both
categories can be either 8 pages (long) or 4 pages (short) in length not
including references. Short papers that describe emerging results,
practical experiences, or original ideas that can be described
succinctly are encouraged. Authors will be required to select an
appropriate paper category at abstract submission time. Submissions may
contain an optional appendix, which will not appear in the final version
of the paper. The reviewers should be able to assess the quality and the
relevance of the results in the paper without reading the appendix.

Submissions in both categories must contain original research that has
not been previously published, nor is concurrently submitted for
publication. Any partial overlap with published or concurrently
submitted papers must be clearly indicated. If experimental results are
reported, authors are strongly encouraged to provide the reviewers
access to their data at submission time, so that results can be
independently verified. The review process is single blind.

Authors of accepted contributions will be required to sign the FMCAD
copyright transfer form found here:

Continuing the tradition of the previous years, FMCAD 2022 is hosting a
Student Forum that provides a platform for graduate students at any
career stage to introduce their research to the wider Formal Methods
community, and solicit feedback.

Submissions for the event must be short reports describing research
ideas or ongoing work that the student is currently pursuing, and must
be within the scope of FMCAD. Work, part of which has been previously
published, will be considered; the novel aspect to be addressed in
future work must be clearly described in such cases. All submissions
will be reviewed by a select group of FMCAD program committee members.
