Demos and Posters
IFIP TC6/WG6.1 Fourth International Conference on
Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems
September 6-8, 2000
Researchers interested in presenting a poster should prepare an overview of their proposed poster in the form of text or postscript file of no more than 1000 words in length. Send the poster title, and the names and affiliations of its authors (including email address), along with the overview (as text in the body of the email, or as an attachment), to: email@example.com. Research students working on FMOODS relevant topics are encouraged to participate in the poster session.
Poster abstract submission: August 15, 2000
Poster acceptance nofication: within 7-10 days after submission is received.
Co-located with SPIN'2000, 7th International SPIN Workshop on
Model Checking of Software, to be held at Stanford the previous week
August 30-31, September 1. See:
Object-based Distributed Computing is being established as the most pertinent basis for the support of large, heterogeneous computing and telecommunications systems. Indeed, several important international organisations, such as ITU, ISO, OMG, TINA-C, etc. are defining similar distributed object-based frameworks as a foundation for open distributed computing.
The advent of Open Object-based Distributed Systems - OODS - brings new challenges and opportunities for the use and development of formal methods. New architectures and system models are emerging (e.g., the enterprise, information, computational and engineering viewpoints of the ITU-T/ISO/IEC ODP Reference Model) which require formal notational support. Usual design issues such as specification, verification, refinement, and testing need to take into account new dimensions introduced by distribution and openness, such as quality of service and dependability constraints, dynamic binding and reconfiguration, consistency between multiple models and viewpoints, etc. OODS is a challenging research context and a source of motivation for semantical models of object-based systems and notations, for the evolution of standardised formal description techniques, for the application and assessment of logic based approaches, for better understanding and information modeling of business requirements, and for the further development and use of Object Oriented methodologies and tools.
The objective of FMOODS is to provide an integrated forum for the presentation of research in several related fields, and the exchange of ideas and experiences in the topics concerned with the formal methods support for Open Object-based Distributed Systems.
