Call for Papers - SEFM'23
21st Int. Conf. on Software Engineering and Formal Methods
8-10 November 2023

Up-to-date information:

SEFM'23 will be held at Eindhoven University of Technology, from Nov. 8 - 10, 
2023, with workshops on Nov. 6 and 7.


Abstract submission: 16 June 2023 (AoE)
Paper submission: 23 June 2023 (AoE) 
Notification: 18 August 2023
Camera-ready submission: 10 September 2023
Conference: 8 – 10 November 2023


The conference aims to bring together 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.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects 
of software engineering and formal methods.

 # Software Development Methods
  - Formal modelling, 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, 
should not exceed 16 pages (excluding bibliography of at most two pages).
Tool papers that describe an operational tool and its contributions should not 
exceed 8 pages (including bibliography of at most one page). 

Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines for Springer LNCS papers 

Submission site:

This edition of SEFM introduces an artefact evaluation (AE). An artefact 
contains any necessary material to support the claims made in the paper and 
ideally makes the results fully reproducible. Submission of an artefact is 
optional for regular papers and mandatory for tool papers. The artefacts will 
be judged by the Artefact Evaluation Committee (AEC). Artefacts can be 
submitted up-to one week after the paper submission deadline.


All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the conference that will
be published as a volume in Springer's LNCS series. 

The authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to submit 
extended versions of their papers to special issues of the journal "Software 
and Systems Modeling" (SoSyM).
