About ISoLA

The ISoLA Symposium is a forum for developers, users, and researchers to discuss issues related to the adoption and use of rigorous tools for the specification, analysis, verification, certification, construction, test, and maintenance of systems from the point of view of their different application domains. To bridge the gap between designers and developers of (formal methods based) rigorous tools, and users in engineering and in other disciplines, it fosters and exploits synergetic relationships among scientists, engineers, software developers, decision makers, and other critical thinkers. In particular, by providing a venue for the discussion of common problems, requirements, algorithms, methodologies, and practices, ISoLA aims at supporting researchers in their quest to improve the utility, reliability, flexibility and efficiency of tools for building systems and users in their search of adequate solutions to their problems. Applications and case studies with a conceptual message and experience papers with a clear link to tool construction are all encouraged.

The Symposium features invited Thematic tracks and sessions containing Research, Survey, Experience, Panel and Tool contributions on the

Use of

  • Deduction and model-checking
  • System construction and transformation
  • Program analysis and optimization
  • Abstraction and refinement technologies
  • Model-based testing and test-based modeling
  • Quantitative analysis techniques
  • Runtime verification technology
  • Tool environments and tool architectures

for Application Areas:

  • Automotive, mechanical engineering, and robotics

  • Electrical engineering, embedded systems, and controllers
  • Healthcare and ambient assisted living
  • Telecommunications, internet applications, mobile computing
  • Transportation, aviation, and space mission
  • Interoperability, transformation & processing-oriented technologies
  • Mastering legacy systems, evolution and change

All accepted contributions will be published in the Symposiums' LNCS Proceedings (Springer Verlag), and there will be post-proceedings in Springer's CCIS series, in particular featuring the contributions of the LDV, Geo, Helthcare, and Robotics tracks, as well as summaries of some poster presentations and of the discussions in the ITSy and the FRCSS sessions.

Selected contributions will invited to the Innovations in Systems and Software Engineering: A NASA Journal (Springer Verlag, London), and to STTT (Springer Verlag, Heidelberg).
