The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

The huge diffusion of computational capabilities in embedded systems, cars, smart houses, smartphones, critical infrastructures, e-health, and the penetration of computers and software in enterprises of every dimension have led to an enormous number of victims of cyber attacks. Formal methods are techniques used to mathematically model systems in order to verify properties in a thorough fashion. Thus, formal methods offer the potential to develop secure systems. However, the communities of formal methods and security were not closely collaborating together in the past on solving such important research problems. The aim of the ForSE workshop is to encourage the integration between these two communities towards development of secure and malware resistant systems, thus bridging the existing gap.
