FM 2023: 25th International Symposium on Formal Methods

Lübeck, Germany, March 6-10, 2023



Submission of workshop proposals: June 10, 2022
Notification of success of proposals (workshop): June 24, 2022
Submission of tutorial proposals: July 1, 2022
Notification of success of proposals (tutorial): July 15, 2022


We are now inviting proposals for workshops, tutorials (and other
similar events) that will complement the main FM 2023 symposium. We
encourage a diversity of topics relating to different ways of
developing and using formal methods. Due to the growing interest in AI
and machine learning-based software development, we particularly
invite topics at the intersection of machine learning and formal

The general purpose of workshops and tutorials is to provide an
informal setting for participants to discuss technical issues,
exchange research ideas and educational approaches, and to discuss
and/or demonstrate applications. These may be driven by fundamental
academic interests, or by needs from specific application domains.

A workshop is an event that involves an open call for contributions. A
tutorial is an event based entirely on invited talks by the organizers
or by invited speakers. Events that mix open and invited presentations
will also be considered.

Workshops and tutorials will take place on March 6th & 10th, 2023,
flanking the main symposium. Each event (workshop or tutorial) should
typically run for a half day or one day, but two-day events will also
be considered. The FM 2023 organizing committee aims to contribute to
at least partial support for one invited speaker per event.

==Submission Information==

Researchers and practitioners wishing to organize a workshop or
tutorial are invited to submit proposals by e-mail to the Workshops &
Tutorials Chairs:

=Workshop chairs=

- Volker Stolz (vsto at hvl.no)

An event proposal should not exceed three pages and should include the
following information:

- Title and brief technical description of the event, specifying its
goals and formal methods focus, and whether the event is a workshop,
tutorial, or any other kind of event.

- The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the
organizers. The organizers of a workshop will also be its Programme
Committee (PC) chairs; in this case, the proposal may also list
prospective international PC members.

- Pointers to information about past editions of the event, if
applicable. Workshop proposals should specify whether it has taken
place before; how often it has been co-located with FM or with other
conferences, and the number of participants in the most recent

- A discussion of the proposed format and agenda (for example: paper
presentations, tutorials, demo sessions, etc). The organizers are
encouraged to describe their vision for an online event, should the
need occur in light of the current global pandemic crisis.

- The proposed duration: half or one day. Exceptionally, two-day
events may be considered.

- Potential invited speaker(s).

- Workshop proposals should describe procedures for selecting papers
and participants, including a tentative timeline for submission and
notification of acceptance, and plans for the publication of
proceedings, if any.

The organizers of the proposed events are expected to create and
maintain a website for the event; handle paper selection, reviewing
and acceptance; draw up a program of talks; advertise their event
though specialist mailing lists; prepare the informal pre-proceedings
(if applicable) in a timely fashion; and arrange any
post-proceedings. FM 2023 will provide the facilities and handle the
registrations for the events.
