Software Engineering and Formal Methods
(SEFM 2014)

http://sefm2014.inria.fr/

Grenoble, France
September 1-5, 2014

####################################################################

SEFM brings together practitioners and researchers 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 with practical engineering methods. 
Satellite workshops provide further opportunities for collaborating 
and exchanging ideas about specific topics of Formal Methods and 
Software Engineering, from conceptual to practical aspects. 
To this end, researchers and practitioners are invited to submit 
proposals for workshops on topics in the fields of the conference.

Organization details 

In order to make SEFM workshops appealing for participants, we plan 
to keep the fares as low as possible. Precise figures have not been 
decided yet, but we estimate that the workshop fee will be 
about 80€ per day, with a full fee of around 500€ for the whole week 
(SEFM conference + workshops).

We also understand that having a good proceedings publication will 
attract submissions. For that, we plan to organize a joint LNCS 
proceedings volume. Nevertheless, if you have your own agreements 
for proceedings or special issue publication, you can maintain them. 

All accepted workshops would be asked to produce a Webpage and a call 
for papers. Both workshop organizers and participants will be required 
to register through the SEFM 2014 registration Webpage and attend their 
workshop.
