The 9th IFIP International Conference on Formal Methods for Open 
Object-based Distributed Systems (FMOODS) is part of the federated 
conferences DisCoTec (Distributed Computing Techniques), together 
with the 9th International Conference on Coordination Models and 
Languages (COORDINATION) and the 7th IFIP International Conference on 
Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems (DAIS). FMOODS 2007 
is sponsored by IFIP, and will be organised by the Department of Computer 
Science of the University of Cyprus.


Established in 1996, the FMOODS series of conferences aims to provide 
an integrated forum for research on formal aspects of Open Object-based
Distributed Systems. The conference will especially welcome novel
contributions reflecting recent developments in the area, in particular
component- and model-based design, service-oriented computing and 
software quality. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
  - Semantics and implementation of object-oriented programming and
    (visual) modelling languages
  - Formal techniques for specification, design, analysis, verification,
    validation and testing
  - Model checking, theorem proving and deductive verification
  - Type systems and behavioural typing
  - Formal methods for service-oriented computing
  - Formal techniques for security and trust in global computing
  - Formalization of runtime system evolution (e.g. dynamic updates, 
  - Multiple viewpoint modelling and consistency between different views
  - Model transformations and refactorings
  - Integration of quality of service requirements into formal models
  - Formal approaches to component-based design
  - Applications of formal methods (e.g. web services, multimedia, 
  - Experience reports on best practices and tools
