Background and Objectives

The ICFEM 2019 Doctoral Symposium is an international forum for PhD students working in all areas related to formal methods. The technical scope of the symposium is that of ICFEM.
The goals of the symposium are:
  • To facilitate networking within the scientific community by bring together PhD students and established researchers in the formal methods community.
  • To enable PhD students to interact with other fellow PhD students and to stimulate exchange of ideas, suggestions, and experiences among participants.
  • To provide PhD students an opportunity to present, share, and discuss their research in a constructive and critical atmosphere.
  • To provide PhD students with fruitful feedback and advice on their research approach.
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 2019 Doctoral Symposium.


The Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in Springer in the LNCS volume as part of the main ICFEM 2019 proceedings.
Papers should be written in English and not exceed 4 pages in LNCS format (see for details). 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. The paper should be submitted in PDF format via easychair ( selecting the “ICFEM 2019 Doctoral Symposium” track.
