FM'05 is the thirteenth in a series of symposia organized by Formal Methods Europe, an independent association whose aim is to stimulate the use of, and research on, formal methods for software development. The symposia have been notably successful in bringing together innovators and practitioners in precise mathematical methods for software development, industrial users as well as researchers. Submissions will be welcomed in the form of original papers on research and practice, proposals for workshops and tutorials, and entries for the exhibition of software tools, publications and companies.

FM'05 welcomes papers in all aspects of formal methods for computer systems, including, but not restricted to, the following:

   * introducing formal methods in industrial practice (technical, organizational, social, psychological aspects)
   * reports on practical use and case studies (reporting positive or negative experiences)
   * formal methods in hardware and system design
   * reusable domain theories
   * theoretical foundations (specification and modelling, refining, verification, calculation etc.)
   * tool support and software engineering
   * environments for formal methods
   * method integration

Full papers should be submitted electronically via the Web by 24 January 2005. Full submission details will be published on the conference web site. Papers will be evaluated by the Program Committee according to their originality, significance, soundness, quality of presentation and relevance with respect to the main issues of the symposium. Papers should have not been submitted elsewhere for publication.

Accepted papers will be published in the Symposium Proceedings, to appear in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series. Papers should not exceed 16 pages and should be in LNCS format: see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
Please include a short list of keywords on a separate line at the end of the abstract, beginning with "Keywords:" in boldface.

We welcome proposals for one-day or two-day workshops related to FM'05.  Proposals may be considered and evaluated at any time up to 7 March 2005  and should be directed to the Workshop Chair Juan Bicarregui (J.C.Bicarregui at rl.ac.uk). Early contact is recommended.

We welcome proposals for half-day or full-day tutorials related to formal methods. Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their potential benefit for participants, and should contain an outline of the objectives, format, content and, if appropriate, history of the tutorial. Proposals may be considered and evaluated at any time up to 7 March 2005, and should be sent to the Tutorial Chair,  Neil Henderson (Neil.Henderson at ncl.ac.uk). Early contact is recommended.

Exhibition & Sponsors' Presentations
An exhibition of projects and tools will also take place during the symposium, with the opportunity of holding presentations for each tool.  The opportunity also exists to give a presentation as a sponsor.  Proposals are welcomed at any time up to 9 May 2005 and should be directed to the Exhibition and Sponsors' Chair, Joan Atkinson (Joan.Atkinson at ncl.ac.uk). Early contact is recommended.
