Rationale Software engineering aims to develop software by using approaches which en able large and complex program suites to be developed in a systematic way. However, it is well known that it is difficult to obtain the level of assurance of correctness required for safety critical software using old fashioned program ming techniques. The level of safety required becomes particularly high in software which is to function without a break for long periods of time, since the software cannot be restarted and errors can accumulate. Consequently programming for mission critical systems, for example, needs to address the requirements of correctness with particular care. In the search for techniques for making software cheaper and more reliable, two important but largely independent influences have been visible in recent years. These are: • Object Technology • Formal Methods First, it has become evident that objects are, and will remain an important concept in software. Experimental languages of the 1970's introduced various concepts of package, cluster, module, etc. giving concrete expression to the importance of modularity and encapsulation, the construction of software com ponents hiding their state representations and algorithmic mechanisms from users, exporting only those features (mainly the procedure calling mechanisms) which were needed in order to use the objects. This gives the software com ponents a level of abstraction, separating the view of what a module does for the system from the details of how it does them.

This book is dedicated to the memory of Ole-Johan Dahl who passed away in June 2002 at the age of 70, shortly after he had received, together with his colleague Kristen Nygaard, the ACM Alan M. Turing Award: "For ideas fundamental to the emergence of object-oriented programming, through their design of the programming languages Simula I and Simula 67." This Festschrift opens with a short biography and a bibliography recollecting Ole-Johan Dahl's life and work, as well as a paper he wrote entitled: "The Birth of Object-Orientation: the Simula Languages." The main part of the book consists of 14 scientific articles written by leading scientists who worked with Ole-Johan Dahl as students or colleagues. In accordance with the scope of Ole-Johan Dahl's work and the book's title, the articles are centered around object-orientation and formal methods.

This book presents 19 revised invited keynote lectures and revised tutorial lectures given at the 4th International Symposium on Formal Methods for Components and Objects, FMCO 2005, Amsterdam, November 2005. The book provides a unique combination of ideas on software engineering and formal methods that reflect the current interest in the application or development of formal methods for large scale software systems such as component-based systems and object systems.

Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems presents the leading edge in several related fields, specifically object-orientated programming, open distributed systems and formal methods for object-oriented systems. With increased support within industry regarding these areas, this book captures the most up-to-date information on the subject. Many topics are discussed, including the following important areas: object-oriented design and programming; formal specification of distributed systems; open distributed platforms; types, interfaces and behaviour; formalisation of object-oriented methods. This volume comprises the proceedings of the International Workshop on Formal Methods for Open Object-based Distributed Systems (FMOODS), sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) which was held in Florence, Italy, in February 1999. Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems is suitable as a secondary text for graduate-level courses in computer science and telecommunications, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry, commerce and government.

Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems V brings together research in three important and related fields: Formal methods; Distributed systems; Object-based technology. Such a convergence is representative of recent advances in the field of distributed systems, and provides links between several scientific and technological communities. The wide scope of topics covered in this volume range in subject from UML to object-based languages and calculi and security, and in approach from specification to case studies and verification. This volume comprises the proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems (FMOODS 2002), which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Enschede, The Netherlands in March 2002.

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Conference on Integrated Formal Methods, IFM 2000, held in Dagstuhl, Germany in November 2000. The 22 revised full papers presented together with the abstracts of two invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 58 submissions. The papers are grouped together in topical sections on linking and extending notations, methodology, foundation of one formalism by another, semantics, and verification and validation.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 13th Brazilian Symposium on Formal Methods, SBMF 2010, held in Natal, Brazil, in November 2010. The 18 revised full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 55 submissions. The papers presented cover a broad range of foundational and methodological issues in formal methods for the design and analysis of software and hardware systems as well as applications in various domains.

Formal methods are coming of age. Mathematical techniques and tools are now regarded as an important part of the development process in a wide range of industrial and governmental organisations. A transfer of technology into the mainstream of systems development is slowly, but surely, taking place. FM’99, the First World Congress on Formal Methods in the Development of Computing Systems, is a result, and a measure, of this new-found maturity. It brings an impressive array of industrial and applications-oriented papers that show how formal methods have been used to tackle real problems. These proceedings are a record of the technical symposium ofFM’99:alo- side the papers describingapplicationsofformalmethods,youwill ndtechnical reports,papers,andabstracts detailing new advances in formaltechniques,from mathematical foundations to practical tools. The World Congress is the successor to the four Formal Methods Europe Symposia, which in turn succeeded the four VDM Europe Symposia. This s- cession re?ects an increasing openness within the international community of researchers and practitioners: papers were submitted covering a wide variety of formal methods and application areas. The programmecommittee re?ects the Congress’s international nature, with a membership of 84 leading researchersfrom 38 di erent countries.The comm- tee was divided into 19 tracks, each with its own chair to oversee the reviewing process. Our collective task was a di cult one: there were 259 high-quality s- missions from 35 di erent countries.

This volume contains the proceedings of the 10th IFIP Working Group 6.1 - ternational Conference on Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems (FMOODS 2008).The conference was part of the Third Federated c- ferences on Distributed Computing Techniques (DisCoTec), together with the 10th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (COOR- DINATION 2008) and the 8th IFIP International Conference on Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems (DAIS 2008). We are grateful to Frank Eliassen and Einar Broch Johnsen of the University of Oslo for the excellent organization of this event in Olso, Norway, June 4–6, 2008. The goal of the FMOODS conferences is to bring together researchers and practitioners whose work encompasses three important and related ?elds: – Formal methods – Distributed systems – Object-based technology The 14 papers presented at FMOODS 2008 and included in this volume were selected by the Program Committee among 35 submissions. Each submission was reviewed by at least three Program Committee members. They all re?ect thescopeoftheconferenceandcoverthe following topics: semantics of obje- oriented programming; formal techniques for speci?cation, analysis, and re?- ment; model checking; theorem proving and deductive veri?cation;type systems and behavioral typing; formal methods for service-oriented computing; integ- tion of quality of service requirements into formal models; formal approaches to component-based design; and applications of formal methods.
