**First Call for Papers**: We invite you to submit original research articles to

16th International Conference on Formal Modeling and Analysis of Timed Systems
Beijing, China, September 4–6, 2018

Conference website:             <http://lcs.ios.ac.cn/formats2018/>
Conference email:               formats2018 at easychair.org
Abstract registration deadline: 23 March 2018
Submission deadline:            30 March 2018 (Good Friday)

Invited speaker: Edward A. Lee, UC Berkeley

**Topics**: The aim of FORMATS is to promote the study of fundamental
and practical aspects of timed systems, and to bring together
researchers from different disciplines that share interests in
modelling and analysis of timed systems and, as a generalisation, of
hybrid systems.  Typical topics include (but are not limited to):

* Foundations and Semantics: Theoretical foundations of timed systems
and languages; new models and logics for analysis and comparison of
existing models (like automata, Petri nets, max-plus models, network
calculus, or process algebras involving quantitative time; hybrid
automata; probabilistic automata and logics).

* Methods and Tools: Techniques, algorithms, data structures, and
software tools for verification, synthesis, learning, online
monitoring and runtime verification of timed or hybrid systems and for
resolving temporal constraints (scheduling, worst-case execution time
analysis, optimisation, model checking, testing, constraint solving).

* Applications: Adaptation and specialisation of timing technology in
application domains in which timing plays an important role (real-time
software, embedded control, hardware circuits, biological systems, and
problems of scheduling in manufacturing and telecommunications).

The proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS
<http://www.springer.com/lncs>.  FORMATS 2018 is part of CONFESTA 2018
<http://confesta2018.csp.escience.cn>, which also includes CONCUR,
