Special Issue on Formal Methods for Robotics
Formal Aspects of Computing
----------------------------------------------

We invite submissions of papers on Formal Methods
for Robotic Systems for publication in a special
issue of Formal Aspects of Computing
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__link.springer.com_journal_165&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=qdQMqy0CC0JFeGeSQrkeH6nq5SsqEuTejGAJvzwa64U&s=BZCBP0eEfseX1ISul9zkNkBJ_dhFwqq87HYrgv2J178&e=

).

-------
Scope
-------

This special issue is devoted to original research
papers on techniques, applications, industrial case
studies, and experience reports connected to the
design and deployment based on formal methods of
robotic systems. Focus is given on all aspects of
modelling, simulation, testing, and implementation
for the validation and verification of robotic
systems.

--------------------
Topics of Interest
--------------------

In particular, the topics of interest include but
are not limited to

    * Formal domain-specific languages
    * Verification of robotic applications: model
      checking, theorem proving, and others
    * Requirements analysis and validation
    * Formal approaches to simulation and testing
    * Correct-by-construction approaches
    * Probabilistic models and analysis
    * Formal approaches to safety and security

----------------------------------
Submission Format and Guidelines
----------------------------------

Papers should have no more than 30 pages and should
be formatted according to the instructions used for
articles in the journal Formal Aspects of Computing.
A detailed submission guideline is available as
'Instructions for Authors' at:
