*********************************************************

FM2009 is the  sixteenth in a series  of symposia  of the
Formal Methods Europe  association,   and the second  one
that  is organized as  a world congress. Ten  years after
FM'99,  the  1st  World Congress,  the   formal   methods
communities from all over the world  will once again have
an  opportunity  to  meet.   FM 2009   will  be  both  an
opportunity to  celebrate, and an  opportunity to join in
when enthusiastic   researchers and practitioners  from a
diversity  of backgrounds and   schools come together  to
discuss their ideas and experiences.

Reflecting   the  global span  of  FM2009,  the Programme
Committee recruited from all  over the world  selected 45
papers,  on every   aspect    of  the *development    and
application of formal methods  for the improvement of the
current practice  on  system developments*.  These papers
will be presented during a three-day Technical Symposium,
which also features   an  Industry Day  in  which  formal
method  providers  will report  on their  experience with
industrial projects, on how  methods and tools  needed to
be changed  and adapted  when confronted with  industrial
requirements, and on  what they  see as major  challenges
for their method or    tool to be applied  routinely   in
industry.

In the days leading  up to the Technical Symposium, seven
Workshops on new  or  emerging fields  of  application of
formal methods will be held as well as seven Tutorials on
advanced topics in formal methods research (see below for
a listing).  Throughout the   week, both  industrial  and
academic tools based on formal methods will be on display
in a Tool Exhibition.

Complete and  up to date  information can be found at the
event website http://www.win.tue.nl/fm2009/.    FM2009 is
part  of    the    1st FMweek   (Formal     Methods week,
http://www.win.tue.nl/fmweek/),  which brings together 10
international scientific events,  6 project  and  working
group meetings, and a  variety of other activities in the
area.
