Tim Berners-Lee, together with leaders from government, business, civic groups and citizens from across the world, has launched the world’s first-ever global action plan to halt the increasing misuse of the web and ensure it is protected as a force for good. The inventor of the web urged widespread backing of the plan, the Contract for the Web, which sets out concrete actions governments, companies and individual citizens can — and must — take to ensure a web that is safe, empowering and for everyone. The failure of global actors to defend the free and open web, he warned, risks a “digital dystopia” of entrenched inequality and abuse of rights.
The ERCIM Working Group on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems is organising the 25th FMICS conference in Vienna, Austria, on 2-3 September 2020. The aim of the conference series is to provide a forum for researchers who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. FMICS brings together scientists and engineers active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The conference series also strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications. This 25th edition will be celebrated in a special way.
The ERCIM 30th Anniversary and Fall meetings 2019 will be hosted by CNR in Rome from Wednesday 30 October to Thursday 31 October 2019.
