Background and Objectives

Since it was started in Hiroshima, Japan in 1997, ICFEM has provided a forum for both researchers and practitioners who are interested in developing practical formal methods for software engineering or applying existing formal techniques to improve software development process in practice. Formal methods for the development of computer systems have been extensively researched and studied. We now have good theoretical understandings of how to describe what programs do, how they do it, and why they work. A range of semantic theories, specification languages, design techniques, verification methods, and supporting tools have been developed and applied to the construction of programs of moderate size that are used in critical applications. The remaining challenge now is how to deal with problems in developing and maintaining large scale and complex computer systems.

The goal of this conference is to bring together industrial, academic, and government experts, from a variety of user domains and software disciplines, to help advance the state of the art. Researchers, practitioners, tool developers and users, and technology transfer experts are all welcome. We are interested in work that has been incorporated into real production systems, and in theoretical work that promises to bring practical, tangible engineering benefits.

ICFEM 2019 will be organized and sponsored by Shenzhen University and will be held in the attractive and enjoyable city Shenzhen during November 5th-9th, 2019. We are looking forward to your contribution and participation.

This year's ICFEM will be held in Shenzhen before the 24th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems​ (ICECCS 2019) in Hong Kong, China. We would like to encourage you to attend both conferences with one business trip.

Scope and Topics

Submissions related to the following principal themes are encouraged, but any topics relevant to the field of formal engineering methods and their practical applications will also be considered.

    Abstraction, refinement and evolution
    Formal specification and modeling
    Program analysis
    Formal verification
    Model checking
    Formal approaches to software testing and inspection
    Formal methods for self-adaptive systems
    Formal methods for object-oriented systems
    Formal methods for component-based systems
    Formal methods for concurrent and real-time systems
    Formal methods for cloud computing
    Formal methods for cyber-physical systems
    Formal methods for software safety, security, reliability and dependability
    Tool development, integration and experiments involving verified systems
    Formal methods used in certifying products under international standards
    Formal model-based development and code generation

Submission and Publication

Submissions to the conference must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the conference. The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Papers should be written in English and not exceed 16 pages in LNCS format (see for details). Submission should be made through the ICFEM 2019 submission page (, handled by the EasyChair conference management system.
