Abstract submission deadline: Oct 09, 2021 Notification: Oct 21, 2021 Worskhop: Apr 6-11, 2022
- Target audience: Logicians (computational, philosophical, mathematical)
- Hybrid logic is a branch of modal logic in which it is possible to directly refer to worlds/times/states or whatever the elements of the (Kripke) model are meant to represent. Hybrid logic is now a mature field with significant impact on a range of other fields, including
- applied modal logics,
- temporal logic,
- labelled deduction,
- philosophy of time, and
- social reasoning.
- The scope of the workshop is not only standard hybrid-logical machinery like nominals, satisfaction operators, and the downarrow binder, but generally extensions of modal logic that increase its expressive power.
- The duration of the workshop is a half day or one day and it will take place at some point during the UNILOG congress, April 6-11, 2022.
- The International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming (ICALP) is the main conference and annual meeting of the EATCS (European Association for Theoretical Computer Science). This year, after two virtual ICALP events, we are happy to be able to host this event in hybrid mode--and hope that many of us will be able to meet again in beautiful Paris! This is a call for workshops to be affiliated with ICALP 2022. We invite researchers to organise workshops on central topics on Automata, Languages and Programming, to help further mark off ICALP 2022.

Workshop proposal deadline: Nov 19, 2021 Workshop notification: Dec 10, 2021 Workshops: Jul 04, 2022
- Workshop Proposal Guidelines:
We strongly suggest that prospective workshop organizers contact the workshop selection committee before submitting a proposal.
Proposals should be submitted by sending an email to the workshop selection committee. You should expect notification on the acceptance of your proposal by 10 December 2021.
- A workshop proposal submission should consist of the following
A short scientific justification of the proposed topic, its significance, and the particular benefits of the workshop to the community.
An organisational part including:
- workshop’s name and URL (if already available);
- contact information for the workshop organizers (including their webpages);
- expected number of participants (if available, please include the data of previous years);
- proposed format and agenda (e.g. paper presentations, tutorials, see below for more details);
- potential invited speakers;
- plans for dissemination, if any (e.g. a journal special issue);
- planned format of the event (see below for mode details);
- virtual/hybrid backup plans (including platform preference).
Note that ICALP 2022 is not able to provide financial support for the organization of workshops. The conference can however provide a room, internet connection and help with some local organisation. For workshops that are online or in hybrid mode, it is expected that the organizers provide the supporting technical infrastructure.
- Workshop Selection Committee:
- Track A: Valia Mitsou email@example.com
- Track B: Mahsa Shirmohammadi firstname.lastname@example.org
- The symposium is planned to be held in person at California Institute of Technology, but potentially transitioning to fully virtual if the COVID situation persists. Virtual presentations will be possible even if the conference is held in-person.
The symposium has NO registration fee for presenting and attending.

Abstract submission: Dec 03, 2021 Paper submission: Dec 10, 2021 Paper Notifications: Feb 04, 2022 Camera-ready Papers: Mar 04, 2022 Symposium: May 24-27, 2022
- THEME OF SYMPOSIUM
The widespread use and increasing complexity of mission-critical and safety-critical systems at NASA and in the aerospace industry requires advanced techniques that address these systems' specification, design, verification, validation, and certification requirements. The NASA Formal Methods Symposium (NFM) is a forum to foster collaboration between theoreticians and practitioners from NASA, academia, and industry. NFM's goals are to identify challenges and to provide solutions for achieving assurance for such critical systems. The focus of the symposium will be on formal/rigorous techniques for software assurance, including their theory, current capabilities and limitations, as well as their potential application to aerospace during all stages of the software life-cycle.
The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is an annual event organized by the NASA Formal Methods (NFM) Research Group, composed of researchers spanning six NASA centers. The organization of NFM 2022 is being led by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), located in Pasadena, California.
- TOPICS ON INTEREST
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of formal methods:
- Advances in formal methods: Interactive and automated theorem proving, SMT and SAT solving, Model checking , Static analysis, Runtime verification, Automated testing, Specification languages, textual and graphical , Refinement, Code synthesis , Design for verification and correct-by-design techniques, Requirements specification and analysis

- NASA OPEN SOURCE
Courageous authors, who want to delve in open source software being applied in real NASA missions, and find possible connections to and applications of Formal Methods, are invited to visit the open source repositories for the following two frameworks for programming flight software: F’ (https://nasa.github.io/fprime/) and cFS (https://cfs.gsfc.nasa.gov/).
