Formal Methods 2005 (FM'05)
18-22 July 2005
Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

First Call for Participation


It is our pleasure to invite you to attend FM'05, the leading
international conference for  researchers and practitioners in formal
methods for the development of computing systems. This  year, the
conference is being held at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK on
18-22 July.

Formal methods continue to have a major impact on systems and software
engineering, especially in  areas where dependability, security and trust
matter. FM'05 aims to publish the latest  developments of interest to
researchers and practitioners alike. The outstanding programme of 
tutorials and workshops (listed overleaf) covers the range from circuit
design, through high  integrity programming to fault tolerance,
architectures and automated reasoning. Wednesday 20th  July is a special
Industry Day, with a series of invited talks on experiences of formal
methods  going mainstream.  The programme of around 30 research papers,
announced in mid-April, will  provide an opportunity to get up to date in
all these areas and more.  Alongside the tutorials,  workshops and
research symposium, there will be displays of tools, products, research
projects  and publishers.

FM'05 is being held in one of England's most dynamic cities, famous for
its captivating welcome,  and situated at the heart of an historic and
beautiful region. There will be plenty of  opportunity for informal
discussion: social activities include a reception at the Hatton  Gallery
and conference dinner in Alnwick Castle and Gardens.

We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle in July!
