The IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems announces a forthcoming special section on Formal Approaches to be published in June 2018.

Formal methods and techniques play a key role in designing and developing highly reliable information systems and embedded systems. The last decades have seen various new techniques and profound theoretical results using formal methods in surprisingly many fields such as modeling, requirements analysis, specification, automatic generation of codes, testing, verification, and maintenance. They are rapidly extending their application domains as a result of the recent growth of information and communication technologies.

The Special Section on Formal Approaches aims at stimulating research on formal approaches to information systems and embedded systems, ranging from fundamental theory to practical applications. Our emphasis is put on the cross-fertilization of related research fields and encouragement of young researchers.

Topics: The major topics are listed below, but we solicit submissions in all areas of formal approaches, i.e., first to formalize information systems, embedded systems, and their environment, next to analyze their behavior and to derive their properties rigorously, and then to solve various problems in designing and managing the systems.

- Theoretical foundations: all aspects of theory related to formal description and verification for structure and behavior of systems. - Formal techniques: techniques for mainly describing and analyzing systems, such as software, hardware and networks. - Formal tools: tools based on formal methods such as model checkers, theorem provers, and static and dynamic analyzers. - Applications: practical experiences of applying formal methods to information systems, embedded systems, circuits, security, etc. - Education: education on formal methods.
