20th International Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods

Jointly organised by Institute of Computer Science of Humboldt University Berlin (DE) and School of Electronic and Information Engineering of Beijing Jiaotong University (CN)

The 20th edition of the International Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods (SEFM'22) will be held Sept. 28 - 30, 2022, with workshops on Sept. 26 and 27 and a SEFM school Sept. 20-24. The conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government, to advance the state of the art in formal methods, to facilitate their uptake in the software industry, and to encourage their integration within practical software engineering methods and tools. Depending on the further development of the current pandemic, the conference will be either purely virtual or in-person-only at Humboldt University, Berlin. Authors should be prepared for both types; the decision will be communicated at the end of May 2022.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of software engineering and formal methods.

  • Software Development Methods
  • Formal modeling, specification, and design
