FORTE 2020 - 2020 International Conference on Formal Techniques for Distributed Objects, Components, and Systems

Date2020-06-15 - 2020-06-19


VenueUniversity of Malta, Valletta, Malta Malta



Topics/Call fo Papers

FORTE 2020 is a forum for fundamental research on theory, models, tools, and applications for distributed systems.
The conference solicits original contributions that advance the science and technology for distributed systems, with special interest in:
Software quality, reliability, availability, and safety;
Security, privacy, and trust in distributed and/or communicating systems;
Service-oriented, ubiquitous, and cloud computing systems
Component- and model-based design
Object technology, modularity, software adaptation
Self-stabilization and self-healing/organizing
Verification, validation, formal analysis, and testing of the above.
Aligned with the above, FORTE covers models and formal specification, testing and verification methods for distributed computing. Application domains are multiple, and include all kinds of application-level distributed systems, telecommunication services, Internet, embedded and real-time systems, as well as networking and communication security and reliability.
Contributions that combine theory and practice and that exploit formal methods and theoretical foundations to present novel solutions to problems arising from the development of distributed systems are very much encouraged.
Main Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Languages and semantic foundations
New modeling and language concepts for distribution and concurrency; semantics for different types of languages, including programming languages, modeling languages, and domain-specific languages; real-time and probability aspects
Formal methods and techniques
Design, specification, analysis, verification, validation, testing and runtime verification of various types of distributed systems, including communications and network protocols, service-oriented systems, adaptive distributed systems, cyber-physical systems and sensor networks
Foundations of security
New principles for qualitative and quantitative security analysis of distributed systems, including formal models based on probabilistic concepts
Applications of formal methods
Applying formal methods and techniques for studying quality, reliability, availability, and safety of distributed systems
Practical experience with formal methods
Industrial applications, case studies and software tools for applying formal methods and description techniques to the development and analysis of real distributed systems.
Emerging challenges and hot topics in distributed systems (broadly construed)
Formal specification, verification and analysis of emerging systems and applications, such as, for instance, software-defined networks, distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and blockchain technologies.
