11 - 15 May 2020, Twelfth NASA Formal Methods Symposium (NFM 2020), Virtual

Date: 11 - 15 May 2020
Location: Virtual
Deadline: Tuesday 24 December 2019

The widespread use and increasing complexity of mission-critical and safety-critical systems at NASA and the aerospace industry requires advanced techniques that address their specification, design, verification, validation, and certification requirements. The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is a forum to foster collaboration between theoreticians and practitioners from NASA, academia, and industry, with the goal of identifying challenges and providing solutions towards achieving assurance for such critical systems.

New developments and emerging applications like autonomous on-board Software for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), UAS Traffic Management (UTM), advanced separation assurance algorithms for aircraft, and the need for system-wide fault detection, diagnosis, and prognostics provide new challenges for system specification, development, and verification approaches. The focus of these symposiums are on formal techniques and other approaches for software assurance, including their theory, current capabilities and limitations, as well as their potential application to aerospace, robotics, and other NASA-relevant safety-critical systems during all stages of the software life-cycle.

Due to concerns about COVID-19, NFM2020 will shift to a virtual symposium.

We encourage submissions on cross-cutting approaches that bring together formal methods and techniques from other domains such as probabilistic reasoning, machine learning, control theory, robotics, and quantum computing among others.
