Workshop #20 - Formal Techniques for Java-like Programs (FTfJP)

At ECOOP'99, ECOOP'2000, and ECOOP'2001, workshops have been organized under the title "Formal Techniques for Java Programs". These all attracted in the order of 30 participants, and many asked us to arrange a fourth event on this topic.

The topic is formal techniques to analyze programs, to precisely describe program behavior, and to verify program properties. Whereas the earlier workshops were restricted to Java, we have chosen to widen the scope to include closely related languages such as C#.

Languages like Java and C# provide a good platform to bridge the gap between formal techniques and practical program development, because of their reasonably clear semantics and standardized libraries. Moreover, these languages are an interesting target for formal techniques, because the novel paradigm for program deployment introduced with Java, with its improved portability and mobility, opens up new possibilities for abuse and causes concern about security.

Possible topics include:

specification techniques and interface speci cation languages
specification of software components and library packages
automated checking and verification of program properties
verification logics
language semantics
type systems
dynamic linking and loading
security issues
