Conference Location
Call For Papers
SEFM aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government, to advance the state of the art in formal methods, to facilitate their uptake in the software industry, and to encourage their integration within practical software engineering methods and tools.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of software engineering and formal methods:

Software Development Methods

    Formal modeling, specification, and design
    Software evolution, maintenance, re-engineering, and reuse

Design Principles

    Programming languages
    Domain-specific languages
    Type theory
    Abstraction and refinement

Software Testing, Validation, and Verification

    Model checking, theorem proving, and decision procedures
    Testing and runtime verification
    Statistical and probabilistic analysis
    Performance estimation and analysis of other non-functional properties
    Other light-weight and scalable formal methods

Security and Safety

    Security, privacy, and trust
    Safety-critical, fault-tolerant, and secure systems
    Software certification

Applications and Technology Transfer

    Service-oriented and cloud computing systems, Internet of Things
    Component, object, multi-agent and self-adaptive systems
    Real-time, hybrid, and cyber-physical systems
    Intelligent systems and machine learning
    HCI, interactive systems, and human error analysis

Case studies, best practices, and experience reports

Paper Submission

We solicit two categories of papers:

    Regular papers describing original research results, case studies, or surveys. Regular papers should not exceed 15 pages, excluding bibliography.

    Tool papers that describe an operational tool and its contributions. Tool papers should not exceed 6 pages (including bibliography) and should include the URL of the tool.

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted concurrently for publication elsewhere. Paper submission is done via EasyChair at

Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines for Springer LNCS papers (see

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the conference that will be published as a volume in Springer™ LNCS series. We are planning to publish the proceedings in the Formal Methods subline of Springer’s LNCS series (to be confirmed).

The authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to special issues of the journals “Software and Systems Modeling” and “Formal Methods in System Design”.
