Overview

Component-based software development proposes sound engineering principles and techniques to cope with the complexity of present-day software systems. However, many challenging conceptual and technological issues remain in component-based software development theory and practice. Furthermore, the advent of service-oriented and cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, and the Internet of Things has brought to the fore new dimensions, such as quality of service and robustness to withstand faults, which require revisiting established concepts and developing new ones.

FACS 2019 is concerned with how formal methods can be applied to component-based software and system development. Formal methods have provided foundations for component-based software through research on mathematical models for components, composition and adaptation, and rigorous approaches to verification, deployment, testing, and certification.

Invited Speakers

  • Wan Fokkink (Professor of Theoretical Computer Science, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)
  • Carlo Ghezzi (Professor of Software Engineering, Polytechnic University of Milan)
  • Kim Larsen (Professor of Computer Science, Aalborg University)
