8th IFIP International Conference on
Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems
Bologna, Italy, 14 - 16 June, 2006

Conference theme:

The goal of the FMOODS series of conferences is to bring together researchers and practitioners whose work encompasses three important and related fields:

  • formal methods
  • distributed systems,
  • object-based technology.
Established in 1996, the FMOODS series of conferences aims to provide an integrated forum for research on formal aspects of Open Object-based Distributed Systems. The conference will especially welcome novel contributions reflecting recent developments in the area, in particular component- and model-based design, service-oriented computing and software quality. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
  • Semantics and implementation of object-oriented programming and (visual) modelling languages
  • Formal techniques for specification, design, analysis, verification, validation and testing
  • Model checking, theorem proving and deductive verification
  • Type systems and behavioural typing
  • Formal methods for service-oriented computing
  • Formal techniques for security and trust in global computing
  • Multiple viewpoint modelling and consistency between different views
  • Model transformations and refactorings
  • Software architectures
  • Integration of quality of service requirements into formal models
  • Component-based design
  • Applications (e.g. web services, multimedia, telecommunications)
  • Experience report on best practices and tools

The 8th IFIP International Conference on Formal Methods for Open
Object-based Distributed Systems (FMOODS) is part of the federated conferences DisCoTec (Distributed Computing Techniques), together with the 8th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (COORDINATION) and the 6th IFIP International Conference on Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems (DAIS). It will be organised by the Department of Computer Science of the University of Bologna.
