ABZ 2021 – 8th International Conference on
Rigorous State Based Methods (virtual)

The ABZ conference is dedicated to the cross-fertilization of state-based and machine-based formal methods, like Abstract State Machines (ASM), Alloy, B, TLA, VDM and Z, that share a common conceptual foundation and are widely used in both academia and industry for the design and analysis of hardware and software systems. The conference aims for a vital exchange of knowledge and experience among the research communities around different formal methods.

Due to the worldwide spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 the ABZ 2020 was postponed to 2021. Nevertheless, all accepted contributions to ABZ 2020 have been published as Springer LNCS volume. Most of them will be presented at ABZ 2021 additionally to the new contributions as answers to the call for papers for ABZ 2021.
