The ICFEM 2020 Doctoral Symposium is an international forum for Ph.D. students working in all areas related to formal methods. 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’2018 Doctoral Symposium.
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: Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 situation, virtural presentation will be considered (with discounted registration fee) if physical presentation is not feasible at the time of the conference.
The technical scope of the symposium is generally that of ICFEM. Due to the recent attention on Trustworthiness of Machine Learning Software System, this year, we would like to specially feature the topic on formal methods for trustworthy Machine Learning System, including but not limited to the following topics:
The Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in Springer in the LNCS volume as part of the main ICFEM 2020 proceedings.
Papers should be written in English and should not exceed 4 pages (including references) in the Springer's LNCS format. Preferably, submissions should include: Title of the paper and the author name; Problem statement, motivations, and progress; Current development and related work; Proposed solutions, approach and methodology, and their significance; Current results and assessment; Future work. 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, on the “ICFEM 2020 Doctoral Symposium” track, handled by the EasyChair conference management system.Access submission portal
