If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Submission Deadline: 20 April 2021

Call for Papers (deadline extension)

SPIN 2021

International Symposium on Model Checking of Software

July 12-13, 2021 (UPDATED)

ONLINE from Aarhus, Denmark

Conference website:

Submission link:

Important Dates:

*** The paper submission deadline is extended to 20 April 2021 because of COVID ***

Submission: April 20, 2021 (AoE)

Notification: May 20, 2021

Camera-ready: May 30, 2021

Conference: July 12-13, 2021


The 27th edition of the SPIN symposium aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in automated tool-based techniques for the analysis of software as well as models of software, for the purpose of verification and validation. The symposium specifically focuses on concurrent software but does not exclude the analysis of sequential software. Submissions are solicited on theoretical results, novel algorithms (classical and quantum), tool development, including for modern hardware (parallel and distributed), and empirical evaluation.

Invited speakers

* ‪Vincenzo Ciancia‬, ISTI-CNR

* Mariëlle Stoelinga, Twente / Radboud University

* Moshe Vardi, Rice University

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Formal verification techniques for automated analysis of software

* Formal analysis for modeling languages, such as UML/state charts

* Formal specification languages, temporal logic, design-by-contract

* Model checking

* Automated theorem proving, including SAT and SMT

* Verifying compilers

* Abstraction and symbolic execution techniques

* Static analysis and abstract interpretation

* Combination of verification techniques

* Modular and compositional verification techniques

* Verification of timed and probabilistic systems

* Automated testing using advanced analysis techniques

* Combination of static and dynamic analyses

* Derivation of specifications, test cases, or other useful material via formal analysis

* Case studies of interesting systems or with interesting results

* Engineering and implementation of software verification and analysis tools

* Benchmark and comparative studies for formal verification and analysis tools

* Formal methods of education and training

* Insightful surveys or historical accounts on topics of relevance to the symposium

* Relevant tools and algorithms for modern hardware, e.g.: parallel, GPU, TPU, FPGA, cloud, and quantum

Submission Guidelines

The proceedings of SPIN 2021 will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Submissions should adhere to the LNCS format: LNCS Information for Authors

With the exception of survey and history papers, the papers should contain original work that has not been submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere. We are soliciting three categories of papers:

* Full Research / Tool Papers describing fully developed work and complete results (16 pages - references are not included in this limit);

* Short Papers presenting tools, technology, experiences with lessons learned, new ideas, work in progress with preliminary results, and novel contributions to formal methods (6 pages - references are not included in this limit).

* Tool Demo Papers presenting the foundations, capabilities, application domains and relevant examples using the tools, with a clear description of what is expected to be shown in a live demonstration (4 pages to describe the tool foundations, features and use examples, plus an appendix explaining the content of the demo).

Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair SPIN 2021 submission website:

papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed by members of the program committee. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, the importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation, quality of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the symposium and present the paper.


A selection of papers will be invited to a special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT).

Dear Colleagues,

We are looking for a colleague who is interested in writing a Foreword (or an Introduction) to the English translation of Louis de Broglie's Dissertation:

Recherches sur la théorie des quanta (Researches on the quantum theory), Thesis, Paris, 1924, Ann. de Physique (10) 3, 22 (1925)

The translated book will be published by Minkowski Institute Press - an academic publisher, associated with the Minkowski Institute in Montreal, run by academics for academics.

As the Minkowski Institute Press publishes valuable books that are out of print and are now in the public domain (the books are typeset in LaTeX), any suggestion for the publication of such books will be appreciated.

Best wishes,

Vesselin Petkov

Minkowski Institute

Montreal, Canada
