Working Formal Methods Symposium (FROM 2020)
September 4-6, 2020, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
-A Fully Virtual Conference-

##Submission deadline extended to 27 July, 2020 (AoE)##

##Important Dates
July 27, 2020 (AoE): deadline for paper submission
August 15, 2020: notification of acceptance
August 25, 2020: revised papers for Studia pre-proceedings
August 31, 2020: registration
September 4-6, 2020: virtual symposium days
September 14, 2020: revised papers for the Springer CCIS post-proceedings


FROM aims to bring together researchers and practitioners who work
on formal methods by contributing new theoretical results, methods,
techniques, and frameworks, and/or make the formal methods to work
by creating or using software tools that apply theoretical contributions.
Formal methods emphasize the use of mathematical techniques and rigour
for developing software and hardware. They can be used to specify,
verify, and analyse systems at any stage in their life cycle:
requirements engineering, modeling, design, architecture,
implementation, testing, maintenance and evolution. This assumes on
one hand the development of adequate mathematical methods and
frameworks and on the other hand the development of tools that help
the user effectively apply these methods/frameworks.

FROM 2020 is organized by by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science
at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, the STAR-UBB Institute,
the Faculty of Computer Science of the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of
ICUB (The Research Institute of the University of Bucharest),
and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of

Due to the current pandemic situation, FROM 2020 will happen as a fully
virtual conference.

FROM 2020 is the fourth event in a yearly workshop series.
The first edition was held in 2017 in Bucharest (,
the second edition was held in 2018 in Iasi (,
and the third edition was held in 2019 in Timisoara (
The second edition papers have been published in Fundamenta Informaticae,
vol.l 173, no.l 2-3,
while the third edition papers are under review process in
Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in Programming.

The format of the symposium encourages interaction. The program
includes invited lectures and regular contributions such that
a wide range of people share their expertise, from experienced researchers
to beginning PhD students.

FROM welcomes submissions on technical contributions, case studies,
experience reports, challenge proposals, and position papers.

##Topics of Interest

Areas and formalisms of interest include:
+ Category theory in computer science
+ Distributed systems and concurrency
+ Formal languages and automata theory
+ Formal modelling, verification and testing
+ Logic in computer science
+ Logical frameworks
+ Mathematical structures in computer science
+ Models of computation
+ Semantics of programming languages
+ Type systems

Methods of interest include:
+ Automated reasoning and model generation
+ Automated induction
+ Certified programs
+ Data-flow and control-flow analysis
+ Deductive verification
+ Mechanized proofs
+ Model checking
+ Proof mining
+ Symbolic computation
+ Term rewriting

Applications of interest include:
+ Computational logic
+ Computer mathematics
+ Knowledge representation, ontology reasoning, deductive databases
+ Program analysis
+ Verification and synthesis of software and hardware
+ Uncertainty reasoning and soft computing


We expect two categories of contributions:

+Full Papers (maximum 15 pages, excluding references) present a
technical contribution, case study, or detailed experience report.
They must not have been published or be concurrently considered for
publication elsewhere. Full papers will be judged on the basis of
contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and
relevance to the conference.

+Short Papers (maximum 6 pages, excluding references) should advocate a
promising research direction, describe work in progress or provide system
They need not be original. We encourage especially beginning researchers to
present a planned
path to a PhD. Short papers will be evaluated based on their clarity and
their potential to generate interesting

Both types of contributions will benefit from feedback received at the
workshop. Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three reviewers.
All submissions will be handled via the EasyChair Conference system at
There is no need to indicate the paper category (long/short).

##Formatting and Publication

Papers should be written in English and should follow the formatting
requirements detailed at

All accepted papers will be published online in Studia UBB Informatica (
by default, though authors will be able to opt out of this publication, if
desired. At least one author of an accepted paper
must attend the symposium to present the work and participate in the

The revised versions of the selected papers will be published in a
post-proceedings after the conference. The post-proceedings will be
published with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information
Science (CCIS) series ( . CCIS is
abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical
Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion
in ISI Proceedings.

Authors of the best original contributions will also be invited to submit
extended versions to a special issue
of a prestigious international journal.
