*********** CALL FOR PAPER ***********

28th November - 4th December, 2022 (the precise day(s) will be announced later)
Udine, Italy (unless held online, depending on the pandemic emergency situation)

Co-located with AIxIA 2022

*********** *********** ***********

The increasing adoption of Artificial Intelligence techniques in safety-critical systems, employed in real world scenarios, requires the design of reliable, robust, and verifiable methodologies. Artificial Intelligence systems employed in such applications need to provide formal guarantees about their safety, increasing the need for a close interaction between the Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods scientific communities.

To witness this increasing need, tools and methodologies integrating Formal Methods and Artificial Intelligence solutions are getting more and more attention.

The workshop is the main official initiative supported by the OVERLAY group (https://overlay.uniud.it). The event aims at establishing a stable, long-term scientific forum on relevant topics connected to the relationships between Artificial Intelligence and Formal
Methods, by providing a stimulating environment where researchers can discuss
about opportunities and challenges at the border of the two areas.

Important goals of the workshop are (i) to encourage the ongoing interaction between the formal methods and artificial intelligence communities, (ii) to identify innovative tools and methodologies, and (iii) to elicit a discussion on open issues and new challenges.

This year edition will be held between 28th November and 4th December 2022 (the precise day(s) will be announced later), as a hybrid workshop co-located with AIxIA 2022 (https://aixia2022.uniud.it), which is scheduled to be held in Udine, Italy (unless it will be an online event, depending on the pandemic emergency situation).

*** Invited speaker ***

Luca Bortolussi (University of Trieste, Italy)

*** Call for contributions ***

We accept extended abstracts (4 pages + references) focusing on the interaction between Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods. Invited talks will complement the presentations of contributed papers.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

 automata theory
 automated reasoning
 automated planning and scheduling
 controller synthesis
 formal specification languages
 formal verification
 game theory
 hybrid and discrete systems
 logics in computer science
 reactive synthesis
 runtime verification and monitoring
 specification and verification of machine learning systems
 tools and applications

Contributed papers can present recent results at the border of the two fields, new research directions, challenges and perspectives. Presentation of results recently published in other scientific journals or conferences is also welcome.

We plan on including all papers in the Proceedings of the event, published at CEUR Workshop Proceedings. CEUR WS proceedings are archival proceedings indexed by DBLP and Scopus.

Submitted papers should not exceed four (4) pages plus references. Authors are asked to use CEUR's LaTeX style, available at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip.

Submissions must be in PDF format and will be handled via the EasyChair Conference system at the following address: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=overlay22.

*** Important dates ***

- Paper submission: September 30th, 2022
- Acceptance notification: October 21th, 2022
- Camera-ready submission: November 4th, 2022
- Workshop: between 28th November and 4th December, 2022 (the precise day(s) will be announced later)

*** COVID-19 Information ***

Taking into account the emergency situation, the organizers of OVERLAY 2022 will closely monitor the evolution of the pandemic and will take all the necessary actions to guarantee a successful event. OVERLAY 2022 will be planned as a fully in-person conference, with the possibility, on a limited basis, of participating virtually, if necessary. Should the situation worsen and an in-person event become impossible, OVERLAY 2022 will be transformed into a fully virtual conference. Updates on the organization mode will be published and advertised in due time.

In any case, OVERLAY 2022 will be a no-fee event.
