Aims

High levels of safety, security and also privacy standards require the use of formal methods to specify and develop compliant software (sub)systems. Any standard comes with an assessment process, which requires a complete documentation of the application to ease the justification of design choices and the review of code and proofs.

Ideally, an F-IDE dedicated to such developments should comply with several requirements. The first one is to associate a logical theory with a programming language, in a way that facilitates the tightly coupled handling of specification properties and program constructs. The second is to offer a language/environment simple enough to be usable by most developers, even if they are not fully acquainted with higher-order logics or set theory, in particular by making development of proofs as easy as possible. The third is to offer automated management of application documentation. It may also be expected that developments done with such an F-IDE are reusable and modular. Tools for testing and static analysis may be embedded within F-IDEs to support the assessment process.

Topics

The workshop is open to contributions on all aspects of a system development process, including specification, design, implementation, analysis and documentation. It welcomes the presentation of tools, methods, techniques and experiments. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • F-IDE building: design and integration of languages, development of user-friendly front-ends
  • How to make high-level logical and programming concepts palatable to industrial developers
  • Integration of Object-Oriented and modularity features
  • Integration of static analyzers
  • Integration of automatic proof tools, theorem provers and testing tools
  • Documentation tools
  • Impact of tools on certification
  • Experience reports on developing F-IDEs
  • Experience reports on using F-IDEs
  • Experience reports on formal methods-based assessments in industrial applications

Submission guidelines & proceedings

Submitted papers will follow the FM 2019 Format and Submission Guidelines. Authors are invited to submit the following types of contributions:

  • Research papers providing new concepts and results
  • Experience reports
  • Position papers and research perspectives
  • Tool presentations

Submissions can be made through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fide2019.

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. They must describe original contributions whose main results and conclusions have not been published or submitted elsewhere. Preliminary proceedings, including all the papers selected for the workshop, will be available electronically at the workshop. Post proceedings will be proposed for publication with Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).
