                             IFM 2007

    Sixth International Conference on Integrated Formal Methods
                  2nd - 6th July 2007, Oxford, UK


                  First Call for Technical Papers

The design and analysis of computing systems presents a significant
challenge: systems need to be understood at many different levels of
abstraction, and examined from many different perspectives.  Formal
methods---languages, tools, and techniques with a sound, mathematical
basis---can be used to develop a thorough understanding, and to
support rigorous examination.

However, further research into effective integration is required if
these methods are to have a significant impact outside academia.  The
IFM series of conferences seeks to promote that research, to bring
together the researchers carrying it out, and to disseminate the
results of that research among the wider academic and industrial
community.  Original, technical contributions are invited in all
aspects of formal methods integration, including:

 * the application of one or more formal methods as an integral part
  of a process of analysis or design

 * the development or extension of one method, based upon the
  inclusion of ideas or concepts from others

 * the addition of formality to informal or semi-formal modelling
  languages, tools, or techniques

 * the combination of different formal methods, in terms of semantic
  integration or practical application

The programme of accepted contributions will be supported by a series
of workshops and tutorials, including a doctoral symposium.

Important dates:

The deadline for full paper submission is January 29th, 2007.  Authors
will be notified on or before March 19th, 2007.  Details of the
electronic submission process will be made available at the conference

Conference location:

IFM 2007 will be held at St Anne's College, Oxford: one of the larger
colleges of the University, with excellent facilities for conferences
and workshops.  Additional facilities will be available in the new
Computing Laboratory building, less than 5 minutes' walk from the
College grounds.  Oxford is easily reached from most UK cities, and is
70 minutes from the country's largest airport.
