Call for Papers
MEMOCODE is a leading conference that brings together researchers and practitioners interested in formal methods for system design and development, research results, and lessons learned. The conference focuses on the foundations and applications of formal methods in the development of hardware, firmware, middleware, and application software for systems ranging from single embedded devices to highly networked Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things.
Topics of Interest
MEMOCODE 2018 solicits research papers on formal methods in systems design that address the foundations, engineering methods, tools, or experimental case studies. Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Modeling Languages, Methods and Tools Programming languages and models; software and system modeling languages; architecture and high-level hardware description languages; timing models; model and program synthesis methods; model transformation methods
- Formal Methods and Tools Correct-by-construction methods; contract-based design and verification; static, dynamic, and type theoretic analysis; verification; validation; probabilistic model checking; test generation; refinement-based and compositional approaches to design and verification
- Models and Methods for Developing Critical Systems Fault-tolerant systems; security-critical and safety-critical systems; cyber-physical systems; hybrid systems; autonomous systems; self-adapting systems
- Quantitative/Qualitative Reasoning Power/performance/cost/latency estimation methods; system models for quantitative design space exploration
- Formal Methods/Models in Practice Design case studies; empirical case studies
- Abstract submission deadline: May 25, 2018
- Paper submission deadline: June 1, 2018
- Notification of acceptance: July 23, 2018
- Final version of papers: August 10, 2018
- Conference: October 15-18, 2018
MEMOCODE 2017 calls for three kinds of submissions: regular papers, work in progress papers, and tool presentations. All papers must be written in English and formatted according to the following IEEE Computer Society guidelines. Submission of papers is handled via Easychair.
- Regular papers must be less than 10 pages and describe original work that does not overlap with another publication or a submission under review or accepted for publication by any other conference or journal. Reviewers will check regular papers for the novelty of the proposed solution and the proofs given for the claims made.
- Work-in-progress papers must be less than 4 pages and describe ongoing work. Reviewers will judge the novelty of the idea, but do not yet expect proofs for the envisioned results.
- Tool papers must be less than 8 pages and should describe an existing and publicly available tool that implements relevant methods. The methods might have been published before, but the tool should not have been described in a tool paper previously. In addition to reviewing the paper, reviewers will assess the tool itself using inputs and a user's manual provided by the authors on the tool's web page.
For questions regarding technical submissions, feel free to contact one of the Program Committee co-chairs: Patricia Derler and Sicun Gao. All accepted papers (regular paper, WIP papers, and tool papers) will be published as IEEE conference proceedings in IEEE Xplore. Publication in the proceedings is contingent on one author registering for and presenting the paper at the conference. Selected papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems.
