  • Apr 4, 2018: Edward A. Lee (University of California, Berkeley) and Grigore Rosu (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) will be the invited speakers at FACS 2018.
  • Mar 14, 2018: FACS 2018 poster is available.


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 2018 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.
