                                CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

1. About the conference
Ten years after the First World Formal Methods Congress (FM'99) in  
formal methods communities from all over the world will once again  
have an
opportunity to come together.  As part of the First Formal Methods Week
event surrounding the FM2009 conference in Eindhoven, Formal Methods  
will be organizing TFM2009, the Second International Conference on
Teaching Formal Methods.

The conference will serve as a forum to explore the successes and  
of Formal Methods (FM) education, and to promote cooperative projects to
further education and training in FMs.

TFM2009 will include a panel discussion on the idea of building a 'Guide
to the Formal Methods Body of Knowledge' (FMBoK), inspired by similar
efforts for software engineering (SWEBoK) and for project management
(PMBoK); such a resource would provide guidance to teachers, managers,
and developers on what should be expected from a comprehensive,
balanced programme of education in FMs.
