Topics/Call fo Papers

The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is a series of annual conferences organized by the NASA Formal Methods Research Goup. The sympoisum is a forum for theoreticians and practitioners from academia, industry, and government, with the goals of identifying challenges and providing solutions to achieving assurance in mission- and safety-critical systems. Within NASA, for example, such systems include autonomous robots, separation assurance algorithms for aircraft, Next Generation Air Transportation (NextGen), and autonomous rendezvous and docking for spacecraft. Moreover, emerging paradigms such as code generation and safety cases are bringing with them new challenges and opportunities. The focus of the symposium will be on formal techniques, their theory, current capabilities, and limitations, as well as their application to aerospace, robotics, and other safety-critical systems.
Formal verification, including theorem proving, model checking, and static analysis
Automated test generation and testing techniques for safety-critical systems
