Call For Papers
FDL is an international forum to exchange experiences and promote new trends in the application of languages, their associated design methods and tools for the design of electronic systems. FDL stimulates scientific and controversial discussions within and in-between scientific topics as described below. The program structure includes research working sessions, embedded tutorials, panels, and technical discussions. The Forum includes tutorials and fringe meetings, such as user group or standardization meetings. “Wild and Crazy Ideas” are also welcome.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts on topics including, but not limited to:
Formalisms & Languages
Requirements and Property specification (RSLs, PSLs, SVA, …), Extra-functional specification (timing, power, temperature, aging, …), Multi-domain parallel applications in dynamic real-time environments, Models of computation, Automata (xFSM, …), Networks (Process Networks, Petri Nets, Task Networks), Platform modelling and abstraction, Transaction level modelling, Run-time system and middleware abstraction, Model and component-based design (UML, SysML, MARTE, …), Advanced language extensions for SLDLs (SystemC(-AMS), Modelica, VHDL-AMS, SystemVerilog Verilog-AMS,…)
Tools & Techniques
Formal property checking, Modeling, Simulation and Formal Checking of functional and extra-functional properties, Parallel simulation, High-level hardware and software synthesis, Testbench automation and Coverage monitoring, Design space exploration and virtual prototyping, Scheduling & real-time analysis
Design Flows & Methodologies
Horizontal and vertical virtual integration testing, Requirements engineering and traceability, Mixed critical embedded applications on multi-core multi-CPU SoCs, Power and performance, Safety and security, Heterogeneous (mixed-signal/multiphysical) component integration, Multi-objective optimization; Model-Driven Engineering
Trending Topics
Besides the established topic areas listed above, we are also looking for contributions in domains which have explicitly been advocated by the FDL community for this year, namely:

Methodology: Formal Models / Formal Verification, System Engineering (Specification, Requirements), Analog Mixed Signal and Multiphysical Embedded Systems, Parallel Processing, Power and Performance Modelling, Universal Verification Methodology, Device models for new technologies.

Applications: Internet of Things (including M2M communication), Mixed Criticality Embedded Systems, Verification of Autonomous Driving, Automatic Driving and Driver Assistance

Authors should submit papers in double column, IEEE format as PDF through the submission system at: Full Research Papers shall not exceed 6-8 pages. Other Contributions like work in progress, wild & crazy ideas, demo night abstracts, or user experiences shall not exceed 2-4 pages. Submitted papers should be anonymous, are required to describe original unpublished work, and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
Accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors. Registration of the presenting author is required prior to the camera ready papers deadline.

The conference proceedings will be published in electronic form with an ISSN and ISBN number and made available on the ECSI website, and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. In addition, an edited collection of extended versions of selected best papers will be published as a book by Springer.
Call for Special Sessions
Professionals are invited to submit proposals for Special Sessions. Special Session should focus on a Topic which is of particular interest to the FDL audience. Papers of Special Sessions may be included in the proceedings/IEEE Xplore. If you are interested in organizing a Special Session, please submit a brief proposal (no more than two pages) which describes the topic, the intended audience, as well as a list of possible speakers to The deadline for Special Session proposals is March 22, 2015.
