18th International Workshop on
Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems

23-24 September 2013, Madrid, Spain

In co-location with SEFM 2013

The workshop proceedings are published by Springer as volume 8187 of the LNCS series, now available online.

The slides from some lectures are available from the Programme page.


The aim of the FMICS workshop series is to provide a forum for researchers who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. In particular, FMICS brings together scientists and engineers that are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS workshop series also strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.

Invited Speakers

  • Alessandro Fantechi, UniversitÓ degli Studi di Firenze
  • Benjamin Monate, TrustInSoft


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

  • Design, specification, code generation and testing based on formal methods.
  • Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis, certification, debugging, learning, optimization and transformation of complex, distributed, real-time systems and embedded systems.
  • Verification and validation methods that address shortcomings of existing methods with respect to their industrial applicability (e.g., scalability and usability issues).
  • Tools for the development of formal design descriptions.
  • Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research directions.
  • Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process and associated costs.
  • Application of formal methods in standardization and industrial forums.
