1st International Workshop on Formal to Practical Software Verification and Composition (VeryComp 2016)

Co-located event of STAF 2016 (http://staf2016.conf.tuwien.ac.at/) 
Wien, Austria - July 4th 2016

Web site: verycomp2016.disim.univaq.it


Paper submissions: April 18, 2016
Notification of authors: May 25, 2016
Camera-ready copies: June 20, 2016


Nowadays, modern applications are increasingly realized as distributed systems composing existing pieces of software that autonomically cooperates to achieve a common goal. As a matter of fact, this calls for new software composition paradigms, and patterns, modeling and verification methods that are practical and usable on one hand and formal on the other. Despite the great interest in practical Software Composition and Formal Verification in their isolation, no common and integrated approaches have been established yet. VeryComp promotes contributions related to the subject at different levels: from modelling and verification to analysis, from componentization to composition. Foundational contributions as well as concrete application experiments are sought.

VeryComp 2016 welcomes research papers, experience papers and tool presentations; nevertheless, papers describing novel research contributions and innovative applications are of particular interest. Details on workshop goals and themes can be found at: http://verycomp2016.disim.univaq.it

All accepted papers will be published as part of a Springer LNCS Proceedings Volume (Lecture Notes in Computer Science): http://www.springer.com/lncs

Furthermore, selected participants will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers after the workshop to a Thematic Series of the Springer JISA journal on Verification and Composition for the Internet of Services and Things (to appear soon on Springer).

Each submitted paper will undergo a formal peer review process by at least 3 PC members. Contributions can be:

- Regular papers (maximum 12 pages): In this category fall those contributions which propose novel research contributions, address challenging problems with innovative ideas, or offer practical contributions in the application of FM and SE approaches for building FI applications via software composition. Regular papers should clearly describe the situation or problem tackled, the relevant state of the art, the position or solution suggested and the potential benefits of the contribution.

- Short papers (maximum 8 pages): This category includes tool demonstrations, position papers, industrial experiences and case-studies, and visionary papers. Authors of papers reporting industrial experiences are encouraged to make their experimental results available for use by reviewers. Similarly, authors of tool demonstration papers should make their tool available for use by reviewers.
