Call for Papers


The way services and information are currently delivered to a multitude of end-users is changing impressively thanks to the availability of new technologies (e.g., IoT connectivity, digitalization, and smart devices) and complex computational models (e.g., autonomic, adaptive computing, and artificial intelligence). Many approaches used nowadays to develop such large, complex, advanced software systems are still not able to ensure the correctness and dependability of the delivered products. Emerging technologies and methodologies gain great popularity while some of their aspects are developed ad-hoc, not rigorously, due to the lack of more formal approaches. Nevertheless, unreliable or unpredictable behavior, such as threats to confidentiality and even financial or health danger, cannot be tolerated as society increasingly depends on them. Assuring safety, security, privacy, performance, trustworthiness and other important qualities of such systems currently represents a challenge that calls for novel rigorous and formal approaches to system design, development, validation, and verification. Indeed, in the digitalized era where physical artifacts are controlled by their Digital Twins, unexpected exposure of users to unwanted behaviors is highly undesirable.

The goal of the workshop is to foster integration between formal methods and software architecture promoting new connections and synergies between the two research communities in order to address the challenges of the upcoming generation of computing systems.



Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

- requirements formalization and formal specification
- formal/semi-formal architecture design, validation and verification, quality analysis and evaluation
- formal/semi-formal approaches to digitalization, development of digital society and Digital Twins
- methodologies and approaches focusing on addressing challenges of modern computing systems that are currently addressed ad-hoc
- architecture description languages and metamodels
- architectural patterns, styles and tactics, view-points and views
- architecture transformation and refinement, architecture based synthesis
- model-driven engineering
- approaches and tools for verification and validation
- performance analysis based on formal approaches
- compliance assurance using formal methods
- application of methodologies, theories, approaches and techniques specific to the aforementioned areas to AI-based, autonomous, robotic, cyber-physical, and self-adaptive systems
- reports on practical experience in the application of formal methods to industrial case studies


Submissions must follow the LNCS style ( All papers should be submitted before the submission deadline using the online submission site: EasyChair FAACS 2022 Workshop.

We solicit the following contribution types:

* Full paper (12 pages + 2 extra pages for references): original research contributions, case studies, or report on work or experiences in industry.
* Short papers (8 pages + 2 extra pages for references): work-in-progress, new and disruptive ideas, techniques and/or tools or extensions not fully validated yet.

ECSA 2022 will use a two-step process for workshop proceedings. Online proceedings (available before the start of the conference) will include all the accepted papers of the workshops and will be published online on the ECSA 2022 web page (no proceedings). The accepted papers will be accessible only by the ECSA 2022 workshop participants and the format should conform to LNCS style. After the conference, we will organise post-proceedings of selected and extended papers of workshops that will be published in a Springer LNCS volume (up to 16 pages). Workshop papers submitted for the post-proceedings will undergo a minor revision cycle where the extensions with respect to the workshop versions will be checked by the reviewers.
