FASE is a member conference of ETAPS 2013, European Joint Conference on Theory and Practice of Software, which is the primary European forum for academic and industrial researchers working on topics related to Software Science. ETAPS 2013 is the sixteenth joint conference in this series.
FASE is concerned with the foundations on which Software Engineering is built. Submissions should not focus on the application or evaluation of given methods, tools or techniques for their own sake but, rather, the principles on which they are based and the way in which they contribute to making Software Engineering a more mature and soundly-based discipline. Contributions that combine the development of conceptual and methodological advances with their formal foundations and tool support are particularly encouraged.
