Established in 1996, the FMOODS series of conferences aims to provide an integrated forum for research on formal aspects of Open Object-based Distributed Systems. The conference will especially welcome novel contributions reflecting recent developments in the area, in particular component- and model-based design, service-oriented computing and software quality. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

- Semantics and implementation of object-oriented programming and (visual) modelling languages.

- Formal techniques for specification, design, analysis, verification, validation and testing.

- Model checking, theorem proving and deductive verification.

- Type systems and behavioural typing.

- Formal methods for service-oriented computing.

- Formal techniques for security and trust in global computing.

- Formalization of runtime system evolution (e.g. dynamic updates, reconfiguration).

- Multiple viewpoint modelling and consistency between different views.

- Model transformations and refactorings.

- Integration of quality of service requirements into formal models.

- Formal approaches to component-based design.

- Applications of formal methods (e.g. web services, multimedia, telecommunications).

- Experience reports on best practices and tools.
