      The Eleventh NASA Formal Methods Symposium

                    7 - 9 May 2019
         Rice University, Houston, Texas, USA

* No registration fee! *

Theme of the Symposium:
The widespread use and increasing complexity of mission-critical and 
safety-critical systems at NASA and in the aerospace industry require 
advanced techniques that address these systems' specification, design, 
verification, validation, and certification requirements. The NASA 
Formal Methods Symposium (NFM) is a forum to foster collaboration 
between theoreticians and practitioners from NASA, academia, and 
industry. NFM's goals are to identify challenges and to provide 
solutions for achieving assurance for such critical systems.

New developments and emerging applications like autonomous software for 
uncrewed deep space human habitats, caretaker robotics, Unmanned Aerial 
Systems (UAS), UAS Traffic Management (UTM), and the need for 
system-wide fault detection, diagnosis, and prognostics provide new 
challenges for system specification, development, and verification 
approaches. The focus of these symposiums are on formal techniques and 
other approaches for software assurance, including their theory, current 
capabilities and limitations, as well as their potential application to 
aerospace, robotics, and other NASA-relevant safety-critical systems 
during all stages of the software life-cycle.

The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is an annual event organized by the 
NASA Formal Methods (NFM) Steering Committee, comprised of researchers 
spanning several NASA centers. NFM 2019 
( is being 
co-organized by Rice University and NASA- Johnson Space Center in 
Houston, TX.

Location & Cost:
There will be no registration fee for participants. All interested 
individuals, including non-US citizens, are welcome to attend, to listen 
to the talks, and to participate in discussions; however, all attendees 
must register.

The symposium will take place in the McMurtry Auditorium, Rice 
University, Houston, Texas, USA, May 7--9, 2019. Travel information can
