SEFM aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners

from academia, industry, and government, to advance the state of

the art in formal methods, to facilitate their uptake in the

software industry, and to encourage their integration within

practical software engineering methods and tools.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following

aspects of software engineering and formal methods:

# Software Development Methods

– Formal modeling, specification, and design

– Software evolution, maintenance, re-engineering, and reuse

# Design Principles

– Programming languages

– Domain-specific languages

– Type theory

– Abstraction and refinement

# Software Testing, Validation, and Verification

– Model checking, theorem proving, and decision procedures

– Testing and runtime verification

– Statistical and probabilistic analysis

– Synthesis

– Performance estimation and analysis of other non-functional


– Other light-weight and scalable formal methods

# Security and Safety

– Security, privacy, and trust

– Safety-critical, fault-tolerant, and secure systems

– Software certification

# Applications and Technology Transfer

– Service-oriented and cloud computing systems, Internet of Things

– Component, object, multi-agent and self-adaptive systems

– Real-time, hybrid, and cyber-physical systems

– Intelligent systems and machine learning

– HCI, interactive systems, and human error analysis

– Education

# Case studies, best practices, and experience reports


We solicit two categories of papers:

– Regular papers describing original research results, case studies,

or surveys. Regular papers should not exceed 15 pages, excluding


– Tool papers that describe an operational tool and its

contributions. Tool papers should not exceed 6 pages (including

bibliography) and should include the URL of the tool.

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted

concurrently for publication elsewhere. Paper submission is done

via EasyChair at

Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines for Springer

LNCS papers (see


All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the conference

that will be published as a volume in the Formal Methods sublime of

the Springer\’s LNCS series.

The authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited

to submit extended versions of their papers to a journal special
