Subject: Second CFP: History of Formal Methods 2019 Dear all, This is a reminder about the History of Formal Methods 2019 workshop, to be held in Porto this October. Full information is in the email below; the key date is 30 April for submission of abstracts.

By 'formal methods' we mean mathematical or logical > techniques for modelling, specifying, and reasoning about aspects of > computing.

Such aspects have been instrumental in > developing fundamental understanding of computation and providing > techniques for rigorous development of software, but have not always > had the desired impact on practical and industrial computing. > > This makes the field ripe for historical research and we invite > submissions to our workshop which take a historical view of the topic. > This may include discussion of developments of various formal methods, > evolving agendas within the field, consideration of the effect of > social and cultural factors, and evaluation of the way in which formal > methods have impacted computing more broadly. > > The workshop is intended to be of interest to current researchers in > formal methods and to be accessible to people without any historical > background. It should also be a venue for historians of science whose > work covers formal aspects of computing as we believe understanding > the the history of the field brings greater clarity to current > technical research. We encourage early stage researchers to try their > hand at historical reflection and gain an idea of the fieldâs > grounding; we invite historians to contribute to the history of formal > methods; and we invite researchers who have worked in formal methods > for whom an historical talk provides the opportunity to reflect on > their field. > > *Submission information* > > Submissions prior to the workshop will take the form of abstracts no > longer than 500 words. If references are required, these can be added > as an optional PDF file (and do not count towards the word count). All > abstracts will be reviewed by the program committee whose details can > be found on the website; based on these reviews, a decision will be > made on who to invite to present at the workshop. > > Following to the workshop, proceedings will be published (details of > publisher to be finalised later).
