International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods (ICFEM) is an international leading conference series in formal methods and software engineering. Since 1997, ICFEM has been serving as an international forum for researchers and practitioners who have been seriously applying formal methods to practical applications. Researchers and practitioners, from industry, academia, and government, are encouraged to attend, present their research, and help advance the state of the art. ICFEM is interested in work that has been incorporated into real production systems, and in theoretical work that promises to bring practical and tangible benefit. ICFEM has been hosted in many countries around the world. Papers at ICFEM are fully refereed and proceedings are published by Springer LNCS and IEEE Press.
This year's ICFEM will be held in Singapore right after the 25th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2020) in Singapore. We would like to encourage you to attend both conferences with one business trip.
Important notice: the ICFEM steering committee has decided to delay the physical meeting to 1 ~ 4 March, 2021. If the situation still does not permit full physical meeting by that time, we will alternatively consider a mixed-mode of physical and online presentations.
Submissions related to the following principal themes are encouraged, but any topics relevant to the field of formal engineering methods and their practical applications will also be considered:
Submissions to the conference must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the conference. The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
Papers should be written in English and should not exceed 16 pages (including references) in the Springer's LNCS format. Additional material may be placed in an appendix, to be read at the discretion of the reviewers and to be omitted in the final version. Formatting style files and further guidelines for formatting can be found at the Springer website (more details here). Submissions should be made through the ICFEM 2020 submission page, handled by the EasyChair conference management system.Access submission portal

The ICFEM PhD Symposium is an international forum for PhD students studying all areas related to formal methods for software and system development. This forum is a good opportunity for PhD students to bring together PhD students and established and known researchers of the formal methods community; provide PhD students with fruitful feedback and advice on their research approach; enable PhD students to interact with other PhD students and to stimulate exchange of ideas suggestions and experiences among participants; provide PhD students an opportunity to present, share and discuss their research in a constructive and critical atmosphere.
We seek PhD students who have either determined the direction of their thesis research (probably with some preliminary results already published), but who still have substantial work to complete, or PhD student participants who are in the early stages of their dissertations. It is not required to have a paper accepted for the main conference in order to participate to the ICFEM’2020 Doctoral Symposium.
More info see the doctoral symposium page.
