              Second IEEE International Conference on
              Beijing, China 26 -- 30 September 2004

The Second IEEE International Conference on Software
Engineering and Formal Methods (SEFM 2004) will be held in
Beijing, the capital of China, during 28-30 September 2004.
Affiliated workshops and tutorials will be organized on 26th
and 27th September 2004, and call for workshops and tutorials
will be circulated separately by the Workshop/Tutorial chair.


   The aim of the conference is to bring together practitioners
   and researchers from academia, industry and government to
   advance the state of the art in formal methods, to scale up
   their application in software industry and to encourage their
   integration with practical engineering methods.


   SEFM 2004 solicits research papers related to, but not limited
   to, the following principal topics:

    *    requirement analysis and specification
    *    software architectures and their description languages
    *    software specification, validation and verification
    *    software design and refinement
    *    models of programs and systems
    *    object and multi-agent systems
    *    coordination and feature interaction
    *    integration of formal and informal methods
    *    integration of different formal methods
    *    component-based development
    *    service-oriented development
    *    aspect-oriented development
    *    formal aspects of security and mobility
    *    model checking and theorem proving
    *    fault-tolerant, real-time and hybrid systems
    *    analysis of safety-critical systems
    *    formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance
    *    formal methods for testing, re-engineering and reuse
    *    light-weight formal methods
    *    prototyping and visualisation
    *    CASE tools and tool integration
    *    application to industrial cases
    *    formal methods for industrial standardisation
    *    socio-economic implications of the use of formal methods

   substantial experience reports/case studies are also welcome.
