iFM 2019 is concerned with how the application of formal methods may involve modelling different aspects of a system which are best expressed using different formalisms. Correspondingly, different analysis techniques may be used to examine different system views, different kinds of properties, or simply in order to cope with the sheer complexity of the system. The iFM conference series seeks to further research into hybrid approaches to formal modelling and analysis; i.e., the combination of (formal and semi-formal) methods for system development, regarding modelling and analysis, and covering all aspects from language design through verification and analysis techniques to tools and their integration into software engineering practice.
Besides the standard conference track and the Doctoral Symposium, iFM will host a number of workshops and tutorials related to the theme of the conference. The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants with a friendly, interactive atmosphere for presenting novel ideas and discussing their application. The goal of the tutorials is to enable the participants to familiarise themselves with theoretical aspects and application of formal methods.
Prospective workshop/tutorial organisers are requested to follow the guidelines below and are encouraged to contact the workshop chairs if any questions arise.
Proposals must be written in English, not exceed 5 pages with a reasonable font and margins, and be submitted in PDF format via email to the iFM workshop chairs, Martin Leucker (email@example.com) and Violet Ka I Pun (firstname.lastname@example.org).

The scientific responsibility of organising a workshop/tutorial is on the workshop/tutorial organisers. In particular, they are responsible for the following items:
The iFM organisation will provide registration and organisational support for the workshops and tutorials (including linking from the conferences web sites, set-up of meeting space, on-line and on-site registration). Registration fees must be paid by all participants, including organisers and invited guests.
To cover lunches, coffee breaks and basic organisational expenses, all workshops will be required to charge a minimum participation fee (the precise amount is still to be determined). Each workshop may increase this fee to cover additional expenses such as publication charges, student scholarships, costs for invited speakers, etc. All fees will be collected as part of the iFM registration.
The proposals will be evaluated by the iFM organising committee on the basis of their assessed benefit for prospective participants of iFM 2019.
iFM 2019 will take place at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences in Bergen, Norway. The campus is located around 10 mins by tram from the city centre.
