Industry Day

This event is organized in cooperation with Formal Techniques Industrial Association (ForTIA) and supported by SAP AG SAP Logo


Scope and Purpose

For Formal Method to become mainstream in industrial practice requires both:

The Industry Day of FM 2009 is reflecting these two prerequisites by combined talks of Formal Method providers and users.

Formal method providers will report on their experience with industrial projects, how methods and tools needed to be changed and adapted when being confronted with industrial requirements, and what they see as major challenges for their method or tool to be applied routinely in industry.

Formal method users will present their motivation to use Formal Methods and a specific technique. They will describe how they integrate the new technology into their development environment, how costly this was and whether initial expectations were satisfied. They will sketch how from their point of view an even broader deployment of Formal Methods can be achieved - both in their own company and in their whole industrial sector.
