Scope

FORTE 2020 is a forum for fundamental research on theory, models, tools, and applications for distributed systems.

The conference solicits original contributions that advance the science and technology for distributed systems, with special interest in:

    Software quality, reliability, availability, and safety;
    Security, privacy, and trust in distributed and/or communicating systems;
    Service-oriented, ubiquitous, and cloud computing systems
    Component- and model-based design
    Object technology, modularity, software adaptation
    Self-stabilization and self-healing/organizing
    Verification, validation, formal analysis, and testing of the above.

Aligned with the above, FORTE covers models and formal specification, testing and verification methods for distributed computing. Application domains are multiple, and include all kinds of application-level distributed systems, telecommunication services, Internet, embedded and real-time systems, as well as networking and communication security and reliability.

Contributions that combine theory and practice and that exploit formal methods and theoretical foundations to present novel solutions to problems arising from the development of distributed systems are very much encouraged.
Main Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    Languages and semantic foundations

    New modeling and language concepts for distribution and concurrency; semantics for different types of languages, including programming languages, modeling languages, and domain-specific languages; real-time and probability aspects

    Formal methods and techniques

    Design, specification, analysis, verification, validation, testing and runtime verification of various types of distributed systems, including communications and network protocols, service-oriented systems, adaptive distributed systems, cyber-physical systems and sensor networks

    Foundations of security

    New principles for qualitative and quantitative security analysis of distributed systems, including formal models based on probabilistic concepts

    Applications of formal methods

    Applying formal methods and techniques for studying quality, reliability, availability, and safety of distributed systems

    Practical experience with formal methods

    Industrial applications, case studies and software tools for applying formal methods and description techniques to the development and analysis of real distributed systems.

    Emerging challenges and hot topics in distributed systems (broadly construed)

    Formal specification, verification and analysis of emerging systems and applications, such as, for instance, software-defined networks, distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and blockchain technologies.
