SBMF-2005 is the eighth of a series of events devoted to the 
dissemination of the development and use of formal methods for the 
design and verification of computational systems. It is now a 
well-established event, with a very good reputation among the 
academics and research agencies in Brazil. The recent creation of the 
Special Commission on Formal Methods, within the Brazilian Computer 
Society, has been an added incentive for our community.


The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity for researchers 
with a broad range of interests in formal methods to discuss the 
recent developments in this field. The themes include, but are not 
limited to the following.

       * Well-founded specification and design languages
       * Formal design methods
       * Formal methods integration
       * Model checking
       * Theorem proving
       * Formal aspects of popular languages and methodologies
       * Formal testing
       * Tools supporting the formal development of computational
       * Systems application and experience reports of formal methods

Papers with a strong emphasis on Formal Methods, whether practical or 
theoretical, are invited for submission.

Submission guidelines
Papers should preferably be written in English, but papers in 
Portuguese are also acceptable. They must be no longer than 16 A4 
pages (single column), including all the figures and references.

https://submissoes.sbc.org.br/sbmf2005. The contact address for any 
inquiry is sbmf2005 at cin.ufpe.br.

Publication of the proceedings in ENTCS (Eletronic Notes in Theoretical
Computer Science) is CONFIRMED, but only for the accepted papers 
written in English.

There will be a Best Paper Award; only the papers written in English
will compete.  Authors of the Best Paper will be invited to submit an 
enhanced version to the JBCS (Journal of the Brazilian Computer
