FM 2014 is the nineteenth in a series of symposia organized by Formal Methods Europe, an independent association whose aim is to stimulate the use of, and research on, formal methods for software development. The symposia have been particularly successful in bringing together innovators and practitioners in the use of precise mathematical methods for software and systems development; contributors always include industrial users as well as researchers. A special theme of FM 2014 will be "linking formal and informal".
Submissions are welcomed in the form of original papers on research and industrial experience, proposals for workshops and tutorials, entries for the exhibition of software tools and projects, and reports on ongoing doctoral work.
It will have the goal of highlighting the development and application of formal methods in connection with a variety of disciplines such as medicine, biology, human cognitive modeling, human automation interactions and aeronautics, among others. FM 2014 particularly welcomes papers on techniques, tools and experiences in interdisciplinary frameworks, as well as on experience with practical applications of formal methods in industrial and research settings, experimental validation of tools and methods as well as construction and evolution of formal methods tools. The broad topics of interest for FM 2014 include but are not limited to:
