The aim  of the  ERCIM FMICS workshop  series is  to provide
a  forum   for  researchers   who  are  interested   in  the
development and  application of formal methods  in industry.
In particular, these workshops bring together scientists and
engineers that are active in  the area of formal methods and
interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial
usage of these methods.

These  workshops   also  strive  to  promote   research  and
development for the improvement  of formal methods and tools
for industrial applications.

Topics include, but are not restricted to:
- Design,  specification, code generation and  testing based
      on formal methods.
-  Methods,  techniques  and   tools  to  support  automated
      analysis,    certification,     debugging,    learning,
      optimization    and    transformation    of    complex,
      distributed, real-time systems and embedded systems.
-   Verification  and   validation   methods  that   address
      shortcomings  of  existing   methods  with  respect  to
      their industrial  applicability (e.g.,  scalability and
      usability issues).
- Tools  for the development of  formal design descriptions.
-  Case   studies  and  experience  reports   on  industrial
      applications  of formal  methods,  focusing on  lessons
      learned or identification of new research directions.
-  Impact  of   the  adoption  of  formal   methods  on  the
      development process and associated costs.
-  Application  of  formal methods  in  standardization  and
      industrial forums.

Submissions   must  be   made  electronically   through  the
EasyChair system.

Papers should  be up to  16 pages  in LNCS format,  with the
names  and  affiliations of  the  authors  and a  clear  and
informative abstract. Additional details  may be included in
a  clearly  marked  appendix,  which will  be  read  at  the
discretion of  the program  committee. All  submissions must
report on original research.

Submitted  papers must  not  have previously  appeared in  a
journal or  conference with  published proceedings  and must
not  be concurrently  submitted to  any other  peer-reviewed
workshop,  symposium, conference  or  archival journal.  Any
partial  overlap with  any  such  published or  concurrently
submitted paper must be clearly indicated.

Case study papers should  identify lessons learned, validate
theoretical  results  (such   as  scalability  of  methods),
or  provide specific  motivation  for  further research  and

The workshop proceedings  will be published in the  Springer
series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

FMICS  2009  is  part  of  the  first  Formal  Methods  Week
(FMweek),  which  will bring  together  a  choice of  events
in   the  area,   including  TESTCOM/FATES   (Conference  on
Testing  of Communicating  Systems  and  Workshop on  Formal
Approaches  to Testing  of Software),  FACS (Formal  Aspects
of  Component  Software),  PDMC  (Parallel  and  Distributed
Methods  of  verifiCation),   FM2009  (Symposium  of  Formal
Methods Europe), CPA  (Communicating Process Architectures),
FAST (Formal  Aspects of  Security and Trust),  FMCO (Formal
Methods  for   Components  and  Objects),  and   the  REFINE
Workshop.  For   the  latest  information  on   FMweek,  see
