The 26th Forum on specification and Design Languages (FDL) is an international event where academics and industrials exchange their experiences, advances, and new trends related to languages, tools, and techniques for developing software and hardware. Targeted systems encompass cyber-physical systems, distributed systems, real-time systems, embedded systems, mechatronics, IoT, and reactive systems.
FDL stimulates scientific and controversial discussions within and between scientific topics at different maturity levels. FDL is based on four non-limiting scientific pillars. Cross-fertilization between them, e.g., in the context of System Engineering, is of great interest.
