1st International Workshop on Formal Techniques for Dependable Autonomous Systems

September 10, 2019, Turku, Finland. Co-located with SAFECOMP 2019


Autonomous systems have been increasingly deployed in safety and mission critical application. For example, future autonomous cars are ready to hit the public roads in a few years. Due to a direct impact on human-lives, their functional safety, security and dependability are important for both general public and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Formal Methods techniques have the potential to address some of the most important verification and dependability challenges associated with such autonomous systems. Indeed, industrial standards, such as ISO 26262, ISO 61508, IEC 62304, EN 50128 explicitly recommend the use of formal methods in the design and development of autonomous systems. The main purpose of this workshop is to bring together people from both industry and academia and serve as a forum to discuss practical applications of formal methods. Moreover, we believe this workshop will help to discuss the readiness of formal methods in industrial applications by discussing the needs of autonomous systems industry and challenges faced by formal methods researchers.

The focus of the workshop will be on formal verification techniques for the modeling, analysis and verification of safety and security critical autonomous systems. We encourage submissions on interdisciplinary approaches that bring together various formal methods and techniques such as model checking, runtime verification and theorem proving.
