Call for Workshops and Tutorials

We are inviting proposals for workshops, tutorials (and other similar events) that will complement the main FM 2023 symposium. We encourage a diversity of topics relating to different ways of developing and using formal methods. Due to the growing interest in AI and machine learning-based software development, we particularly invite topics at the intersection of machine learning and formal methods.

The general purpose of workshops and tutorials is to provide an informal setting for participants to discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas and educational approaches, and to discuss and/or demonstrate applications. These may be driven by fundamental academic interests, or by needs from specific application domains.

A workshop is an event that involves an open call for contributions. A tutorial is an event based entirely on invited talks by the organizers or by invited speakers. Events that mix open and invited presentations will also be considered.

Workshops and tutorials will take place on March 6th & 10th, 2023, flanking the main symposium. Each event (workshop or tutorial) should typically run for a half day or one day, but two-day events will also be considered. The FM 2023 organizing committee aims to contribute to at least partial support for one invited speaker per event.

Submission Information

Researchers and practitioners wishing to organize a workshop or tutorial are invited to submit proposals by e-mail to the Workshops & Tutorials Chairs:

Tutorial chairs:

  • Cesar Sanchez (cesar.sanchez@imdea.org) and
  • Martin Sachenbacher (sachenbacher@isp.uni-luebeck.de)

Workshop chairs:

  • Esfandiar Mohammadi (esfandiar.mohammadi@uni-luebeck.de) and
  • Volker Stolz (vsto@hvl.no)

An event proposal should not exceed three pages and should include the following information:

  • Title and brief technical description of the event, specifying its goals and formal methods focus, and whether the event is a workshop, tutorial, or any other kind of event.
  • The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the organizers. The organizers of a workshop will also be its Programme Committee (PC) chairs; in this case, the proposal may also list prospective international PC members.
  • Pointers to information about past editions of the event, if applicable. Workshop proposals should specify whether it has taken place before; how often it has been co-located with FM or with other conferences, and the number of participants in the most recent installments.
  • A discussion of the proposed format and agenda (for example: paper presentations, tutorials, demo sessions, etc). The organizers are encouraged to describe their vision for an online event, should the need occur in light of the current global pandemic crisis.
  • The proposed duration: half or one day. Exceptionally, two-day events may be considered.
  • Potential invited speaker(s).
  • Workshop proposals should describe procedures for selecting papers and participants, including a tentative timeline for submission and notification of acceptance, and plans for the publication of proceedings, if any.
