Objective and Scope

Timing aspects of systems from a variety of computer science domains have been treated independently by different communities. Researchers interested in semantics, verification and performance analysis study models such as timed automata and timed Petri nets, the digital design community focusses on propagation and switching delays, while designers of embedded controllers have to take account of the time taken by controllers to compute their responses after sampling the environment.

Timing-related questions in these separate disciplines do have their particularities. However, there is a growing awareness that there are basic problems that are common to all of them. In particular, all these sub-disciplines treat systems whose behaviour depends upon combinations of logical and temporal constraints; namely, constraints on the temporal distances between occurrences of events. The aim of FORMATS is to promote the study of fundamental and practical aspects of timed systems, and to bring together researchers from different disciplines that share interests in modelling and analysis of timed systems. Typical topics include (but are not limited to):

Submission and Publication

The FORMATS 2011 proceedings will be published as volume 6919 of the LNCS series at Springer.

Submitted papers must contain original contributions, be clearly written, and include appropriate references to and comparison with related work. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. Submissions must not exceed 15 pages (excluding the bibliography), and must be formatted according to Springer LNCS guidelines. If necessary, the submission may be supplemented with a clearly marked appendix, which will be reviewed at the discretion of the program committee.

Submission of papers to FORMATS 2011 is handled through EasyChair. The submission link is https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=formats2011
