iFM 2019 - Call for Workshops and Tutorials

15th International Conference on integrated Formal Methods (iFM)

2-6 December 2019

Bergen, Norway


Important Dates

Submission of proposals: 15th of March 2019

About iFM

iFM 2019 is concerned with how the application of formal methods may
involve modelling different aspects of a system which are best expressed
using different formalisms. Correspondingly, different analysis
techniques may be used to examine different system views, different
kinds of properties, or simply in order to cope with the sheer
complexity of the system. The iFM conference series seeks to further
research into hybrid approaches to formal modelling and analysis; i.e.,
the combination of (formal and semi-formal) methods for system
development, regarding modelling and analysis, and covering all aspects
from language design through verification and analysis techniques to
tools and their integration into software engineering practice.

Besides the standard conference track and the Doctoral Symposium, iFM
will host a number of workshops and tutorials related to the theme of
the conference.  The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants
with a friendly, interactive atmosphere for presenting novel ideas and
discussing their application. The goal of the tutorials is to enable the
participants to familiarise themselves with theoretical aspects and
application of formal methods.

Prospective workshop/tutorial organisers are requested to follow the
guidelines below and are encouraged to contact the workshop chairs if
any questions arise.

Proposal and Submission Guidelines

Proposals must be written in English, not exceed 5 pages with a
reasonable font and margins, and be submitted in PDF format via email to
the iFM workshop chairs, Martin Leucker (leucker at isp.uni-luebeck.de) and
Violet Ka I Pun (vpu at hvl.no).

Workshop proposals should include:


    The name, the duration (1 or 2 days) and the preferred date of the
    proposed workshop


    A short description of the workshop.


    If applicable, a description of past versions of the workshop,
    including dates, organisers, submission and acceptance counts, and


    The publicity strategy that will be used by the workshop organisers
    to promote the workshop,


    The participant solicitation and selection process.


    The target audience and expected number of participants.


    Approximate budget proposal (see section Budget below for details).


    The equipment and any other resource necessary for the organisation
    of the workshop.


    The name and short CV of the organiser(s).


    The publication plan (only invited speakers, no published
    proceedings, pre-/post-proceedings published with EPTCS/ENTCS/...).

Tutorial proposals should include


    The name, the duration (1/2 or 1 day).


    A short description of the tutorial.


    Motivation for the tutorial (e.g., relation to conference)


    Overview of content, description of the aims, presentation style,
    potential/preferred prerequisite knowledge.


    Intended audience and expected number of participants.


    List of readings, handbook, tools used in the tutorial.

Organisers Responsibilities

The scientific responsibility of organising a workshop/tutorial is on
the workshop/tutorial organisers. In particular, they are responsible
for the following items:


    A workshop/tutorial description (200 words) for inclusion in the iFM


    Hosting and maintaining web pages to be linked from the iFM site.
    Workshop/tutorial organisers can integrate their pages into the main
    iFM pages.


    Scheduling workshop/tutorial activities in collaboration with the
    iFM workshop chairs.


    Workshop publicity (possibly including call for papers, submission
    and review process).


    Workshop proceedings, if any. If there is sufficient interest, the
    iFM 2019 workshop organisers may contact the editor-in-chief of the
    Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science
    (http://info.eptcs.org/) for having a common volume dedicated to the
    workshops of iFM 2019.


The iFM organisation will provide registration and organisational
support for the workshops and tutorials (including linking from the
conferences web sites, set-up of meeting space, on-line and on-site
registration). Registration fees must be paid by all participants,
including organisers and invited guests.

To cover lunches, coffee breaks and basic organisational expenses, all
workshops will be required to charge a minimum participation fee (the
precise amount is still to be determined). Each workshop may increase
this fee to cover additional expenses such as publication charges,
student scholarships, costs for invited speakers, etc. All fees will be
collected as part of the iFM registration.

Evaluation Process

The proposals will be evaluated by the iFM organising committee on the
basis of their assessed benefit for prospective participants of iFM 2019.


iFM 2019 will take place at the Western Norway University of Applied
Sciences in Bergen, Norway.  The campus is located around 10 mins by
tram from the city centre.
