Formal Methods for Embedded Distributed Systems

The development of any Software (Industrial) Intensive System, e.g. critical embedded software, requires both different notations, and a strong development process. Different notations are mandatory because different aspects of the Software System have to be tackled. A strong development process is mandatory as well because without a strong organization we cannot warrantee the system will meet its requirements. Unfortunately, much more is needed! Formal Methods for Embedded Distributed Systems is dedicated to the presentation of some techniques to be used in the context of distributed and/or embedded systems. Since formal techniques rely on models, i.e. different descriptions of the system to be designed, the presented techniques are located in the first part of software development. Formal Methods for Embedded Distributed Systems makes many connections between "traditional development approaches" and the latest developments in formal techniques that are known as the best solution to significantly increase the reliability of such systems. The target audience is mainly composed of professionals (engineers, researchers and teachers), and students (graduated and postgraduated) who want to have a clear understanding of how to manage the inherent complexity of critical and/or distributed systems.

Formal Methods for Open Object based Distributed Systems

Object-based Distributed Computing is being established as the most pertinent basis for the support of large, heterogeneous computing and telecommunications systems. The advent of Open Object-based Distributed Systems (OODS) brings new challenges and opportunities for the use and development of formal methods. Formal Methods for Open Object-based Distributed Systems presents the latest research in several related fields, and the exchange of ideas and experiences in a number of topics including: formal models for object-based distributed computing; semantics of object-based distributed systems and programming languages; formal techniques in object-based and object oriented specification, analysis and design; refinement and transformation of specifications; multiple viewpoint modeling and consistency between different models; formal techniques in distributed systems verification and testing; types, service types and subtyping; specification, verification and testing of quality of service constraints and formal methods and the object life cycle. It contains the selected proceedings of the International Workshop on Formal Methods for Open Object-based Distributed Systems, sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing, and based in Paris, France, in March 1996.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 13th IFIP WG 6.1 International Conference on Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems, FMOODS 2011, and the 31st IFIP WG 6.1 Formal Techniques for Networked and Distributed Systems, FORTE 2011, held in Reykjavik, Island, in June 2011, as one of the DisCoTec 2011 events. The 21 revised full papers presented together with one invited talk were carefully reviewed and selected from 65 submissions. The topics covered are formal verification, formal modeling and specification, run-time monitoring, and testing to address challenges in many different application areas, including dynamic and ad hoc networks, mobile and adaptive computation, reactive and timed systems, business processes, and distributed and concurrent systems and algorithms.

Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems presents the leading edge in several related fields, specifically object-orientated programming, open distributed systems and formal methods for object-oriented systems. With increased support within industry regarding these areas, this book captures the most up-to-date information on the subject. Many topics are discussed, including the following important areas: object-oriented design and programming; formal specification of distributed systems; open distributed platforms; types, interfaces and behaviour; formalisation of object-oriented methods. This volume comprises the proceedings of the International Workshop on Formal Methods for Open Object-based Distributed Systems (FMOODS), sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) which was held in Florence, Italy, in February 1999. Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems is suitable as a secondary text for graduate-level courses in computer science and telecommunications, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry, commerce and government.

Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems V brings together research in three important and related fields: Formal methods; Distributed systems; Object-based technology. Such a convergence is representative of recent advances in the field of distributed systems, and provides links between several scientific and technological communities. The wide scope of topics covered in this volume range in subject from UML to object-based languages and calculi and security, and in approach from specification to case studies and verification. This volume comprises the proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems (FMOODS 2002), which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Enschede, The Netherlands in March 2002.

Techniques based on formal methods, such as the language of CSP (Communicating Sequential Processes) have proven to be the most successful means of conquering complexity in the specification of concurrent, embedded, real-time and distributed systems.

This volume contains the proceedings of the 10th IFIP Working Group 6.1 - ternational Conference on Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems (FMOODS 2008).The conference was part of the Third Federated c- ferences on Distributed Computing Techniques (DisCoTec), together with the 10th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (COOR- DINATION 2008) and the 8th IFIP International Conference on Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems (DAIS 2008). We are grateful to Frank Eliassen and Einar Broch Johnsen of the University of Oslo for the excellent organization of this event in Olso, Norway, June 4–6, 2008. The goal of the FMOODS conferences is to bring together researchers and practitioners whose work encompasses three important and related ?elds: – Formal methods – Distributed systems – Object-based technology The 14 papers presented at FMOODS 2008 and included in this volume were selected by the Program Committee among 35 submissions. Each submission was reviewed by at least three Program Committee members. They all re?ect thescopeoftheconferenceandcoverthe following topics: semantics of obje- oriented programming; formal techniques for speci?cation, analysis, and re?- ment; model checking; theorem proving and deductive veri?cation;type systems and behavioral typing; formal methods for service-oriented computing; integ- tion of quality of service requirements into formal models; formal approaches to component-based design; and applications of formal methods.

The IFIP TC6 WG 6.1 Joint International Conference on Formal Techniques for Networked and Distributed Systems, FORTE 2002, was held this year at Rice University, Houston, Texas, on November 11–14. This annual conference provides a forum for researchers and practitioners from universities and industry to meet and advance technologies in areas of speci?cation, testing, and veri?cation of distributed systems and communication protocols. The main topics are: – FDT-based system and protocol engineering. – Semantical foundations. – Extensions of FDTs. – Formal approaches to concurrent/distributed object-oriented systems. – Real-time and probability aspects. – Performance modeling and analysis. – Quality of service modeling and analysis. – Veri?cation and validation. – Relations between informal and formal speci?cation. – FDT-based protocol implementation. – Software tools and support environments. – FDT application to distributed systems. – Protocol testing, including conformance testing, interoperability testing, and performance testing. – Test generation, selection, and coverage. – Practical experience and case studies. – Corporate strategic and ?nancial consequences of using formal methods. A total of 61 papers were submitted to FORTE 2002, and reviewed by m- bers of the program committee and additional reviewers. The program committee selected 22 regular papers, two tool papers, and two posters for presentation at the conference. The program also included three tutorials and ?ve invited talks.
