General Information about SFM

Formal methods are emerging in computer science as a prominent approach
to the rigorous design of computer, communication and software systems.
The main aim of the SFM series is to offer a good spectrum of current
research in foundations as well as applications of formal methods,
which can be of interest for graduate students and young researchers
who intend to approach the field.

This year SFM is devoted to formal methods and tools for the design
of mobile systems and mobile communication infrastructures. The school
covers the theory underlying mobile processes, languages and middleware
for supporting mobility, security and performance aspects, and dynamic
power management.

This edition of the school is organized by the Information Science and
Technology Institute of the University of Urbino within the project
``Methodologies for the Development and the Verification of Distributed
Applications on Wireless Mobile Terminals''.

Courses and Lecturers

The school lasts one week -- Tuesday 26 to Saturday 30 April 2005 --
and features 13 monographic courses:

* "Theory of Mobile Processes: Ambient Calculus and Spatial Logic"
      by Luca Cardelli (Microsoft Research Cambridge - UK)
* "Mobile Process Calculi and History-Dependent Automata"
      by Marco Pistore (University of Trento - Italy)
* "Mobile Distributed Programming in X-Klaim"
      by Rocco De Nicola (University of Firenze - Italy)
* "Mobile Network Security"
      by Refik Molva (Eurecom Institute - France)
* "Wireless Adaptive Mobility"
      by Mario Gerla (University of California at Los Angeles - USA)
* "3G and Beyond: The Convergence of Mobile Telephony and Computing"
      by Valerio Zingarelli (Vodafone)
* "Performance Analysis of Mobile Software Architectures"
      by Vincenzo Grassi (University of Roma "Tor Vergata" - Italy)
* "Dynamic Power Management: An Introduction"
      by Alessandro Bogliolo (University of Urbino - Italy)
* "Dynamic Power Management: Formal Approaches"
      by Marco Bernardo (University of Urbino - Italy)
* "Dynamic Power Management: The IEEE 802.11 Standard"
      by Andrea Acquaviva (University of Urbino - Italy)
* "Code Mobility"
      by Gian Pietro Picco (Politecnico di Milano - Italy)
* "Network Swapping"
      by Emanuele Lattanzi (University of Urbino - Italy)
* "Hermes: A Middleware for Mobile Computing"
      by F. Corradini and E. Merelli (University of Camerino - Italy)

All the participants will receive a copy of a tutorial book published
by Springer as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.


The school will be held in the small medieval hilltop town of Bertinoro.
This town is in Emilia Romagna, about 70 km south-east of Bologna,
at an elevation of about 230 m. It can be reached in a couple of hours
from the international airport "G. Marconi" of Bologna by shuttle (from
the airport to the railway station) + train (from Bologna to Forli`) +
bus (from the railway station to Bertinoro). The closest airport is
the "L. Ridolfi" airport of Forli`, which is 13 km away.

Bertinoro is close to many splendid locations such as Urbino,
Gradara, San Leo, and the Republic of San Marino, as well as some
less well-known locations like the thermal springs of Fratta Terme.
Bertinoro can also be a base for visiting some of the better-known
Italian locations such as Bologna, Ravenna, Ferrara, Venezia, Padova,
Verona, Firenze, Pisa, and Siena.

Bertinoro itself is picturesque, with its narrow streets and walkways
winding around the central peak. The school will be held at the
Centro Residenziale Universitario, an ex-episcopal fortress that
has been converted by the University of Bologna into a modern
conference center with computing facilities and Internet access.
>From the fortress it is possible to enjoy a beautiful vista that stretches
from the Apennines to the Adriatic coast and the Alps over the Po Valley.
