- FORMATS (21st International Conference on Formal Modeling and Analysis of
Timed Systems), and

Critical Systems).

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for ONE DAY

workshops on topics related to theory, formal modeling, verification,
performance evaluation and engineering of concurrent, timed, industrial,
and other systems.

Typically, CONFEST workshops feature a number of invited speakers and a
number of contributed presentations.

The workshops will take place one day before (18 September) and one day

The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants with a friendly,
stimulating, and interactive atmosphere for

- presenting novel ideas,

- discussing their applications,

- encouraging cross-fertilization between industry and academia, and

- fostering opportunities for young and prospective researchers.


CONFEST’23 is planned as a physical, in-person event, with some support for
remote participation.

In a limited number of cases, there will be remote-participation support
for speakers and for other

participants who are unable to come. Please take this into account when
preparing a workshop

proposal and communicate to participants requiring such support that they
should contact the

organisers of CONFEST explaining their case.
