FSEN 2005 is an international workshop organized by the Institute for
Studies in Theoretical Physics and Mathematics (IPM) in Iran

Workshop goals

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners working on different aspects of formal methods in software
engineering. The specific goal is to facilitate transfer of experience,
adaptation of methods, and where possible, collaboration between
different groups.  The topics may cover any aspect in formal methods,
especially those related to advancing the application of formal methods
in software industry and promoting their integration with practical
engineering techniques.

Topics of interest

The topics of this workshop include, but are not restricted to, the

* Models of programs and systems
* Software specification, validation and verification
* Software architectures and their description languages
* Object and multi-agent systems
* Coordination and feature interaction
* Integration of formal and informal methods
* Integration of different formal methods
* Component-based development
* Service-oriented development
* Model checking and theorem proving
* Software and hardware verification
* CASE tools and tool integration
* Application to industrial cases


Accepted papers will be available at the workshop in a pre-proceedings
published by IPM. A post-proceedings will be published in the Elsevier's
ENTCS conference series.  Selected papers will also be published in a
special issue of a journal (to be confirmed).
