FORTE 2023 - 43rd International Conference on Formal Techniques for Distributed Objects, Components, and Systems

FORTE 2023 is one of the three conferences of DisCoTec 2023, the 18th International Federated Conference on Distributed Computing Techniques.

Topics of Interest

FORTE 2023 is a forum for fundamental research on theory, models, tools, and applications for distributed systems.

We invite submissions focused on foundational aspects of distributed software systems, presenting approaches or tools to formally model, soundly implement, and rigorously validate these demanding but ever more necessary systems and applications. As our dependency on such software systems grow, also our responsibility as researchers grows to provide both trustworthy and usable solutions.

The main topics of interest include:


Important Dates (AoE)

Submission Guidelines

Contributions must be written in English according to one of the three categories described below. Apart from journal-first papers, all papers should report on original, unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP codes of conduct, under Links).

Submissions must be prepared as a PDF using Springer’s LNCS style. Submissions not adhering to the specified constraints of their respective category may be rejected without review.

Categories of Papers

All papers should be submitted in LNCS format. We solicit papers in the following categories:

Artefact Submission and Evalution Guidelines

FORTE 2023 includes an artefact evaluation performed by the artefact evaluation committee (AEC). Refer to this page for additional details.

Partial Rebuttal

Some papers that raised doubts the reviewers would like to clarify to consider acceptance, will have 48h to respond to concrete questions. The responses will be taken into account during the PC discussions.


The conference proceedings, formed by accepted submissions from any category, will be published by Springer as an LNCS-IFIP volume.

Special Issue

Selected papers will be invited to a special issue of Logical Methods in Computer Science.
