                             7th International Symposium on
          Formal Techniques in Real-Time and Fault Tolerant Systems

                   co-sponsored by IFIP Working Group 2.2 on

                   Formal Description of Programming Concepts

                                9 -- 12 September 2002
  
                                 University of Oldenburg

Theme

 The symposium will present advances in the development and use of formal  
 techniques in the design of real-time, hybrid, fault-tolerant embedded 
 systems, covering all stages from requirements analysis to hardware and/or  
 software implementation. With the increasing use of such formal techniques 
 in industrial settings, the conference aims at stimulating 
 cross-fertilization  between challenges in industrial usages of 
 formal methods and advanced research. Topics within this theme include 

 - requirements' capture       - timing estimation
 - safety analysis                - partitioning
 - formal models                  - schedulability analysis
 - specification                   - hardware/software codesign
 - verification                     - fault tolerance
 - testing                           - real-time communications services

New

 The Symposium will in particular focus on UML based development of real-time 
  
 systems, and will through invited presentations strengthen links between the 
  
 dependable systems and formal methods research communities.
 Also, this time the Symposium is co-sponsored by Working Group 2.2 on
 "Formal Description of Programming Concepts" of IFIP, 
 the International Federation of Information Processing, which
 adds to the above theme the following topics:

 - component-based design
 - formal models of object-oriented design
 - secure global and mobile computing

Series

 This Symposium is the seventh of a series of symposia devoted to
 problems and solutions in safe system design. The previous symposia
 took place in Warwick 1990, Nijmegen 1992, L"ubeck 1994,
 Uppsala 1996, Lyngby 1998, and Pune 2000. Proceedings of these
 symposia were published  as volumes 331, 571, 863, 1135, 1486 and 1926
 in the LNCS series by Springer-Verlag.

Format

 The Symposium is a four days event starting with 
 tutorials, followed by the regular conference with invited talks and 
 presentations selected from the submissions by the program committee.
 The Symposium is followed by one day satellite events.

Submissions

 Paper submissions with original contributions to the above topics are 
 invited. The papers should not exceed 18 pages in the Springer-Verlag 
 LNCS format, see 

     http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html,

 and be accompanied by the complete address (electronic, postal and fax) 
 of the corresponding author, a short abstract, and a list of key words.
 Before submitting a paper please check at

 for the up-to-date information of the submission procedure. Accepted 
 papers will be published as a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer 
 Science (LNCS) by Springer-Verlag:
