The aim of the FMICS conference series is to provide a forum for researchers who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. FMICS brings together scientists and engineers who are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS conference series also strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.

FMICS 2021 is part of the QONFEST umbrella conference. This year, a special session will be included on Formal Methods for Blockchain-based Smart Contracts along with a panel on this topic. Keynote Speaker: Joe Kiniry (Galois Inc. and Free & Fair, US).
