*********** *********** ***********

The increasing adoption of Artificial Intelligence techniques in safety-cri
tical systems, employed in real world scenarios, requires the design of rel
iable, robust, and verifiable methodologies. Artificial Intelligence system
s employed in such applications need to provide formal guarantees about the
ir safety, increasing the need for a close interaction between the Artifici
al Intelligence and Formal Methods scientific communities, and possibly lea
ding to the proposal of novel neurosymbolic approaches.

To witness this increasing need, tools and methodologies integrating Formal
 Methods and Artificial Intelligence, and more broadly symbolic and sub-sym
bolic solutions, are getting more and more attention, especially considerin
g the wide-range and pervasive applications of machine and deep learning mo

The workshop is the main official initiative supported by the OVERLAY group
 (https://overlay.uniud.it). The event aims at establishing a stable, long-
term scientific forum on relevant topics connected to the relationships bet
ween Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods, by providing a stimulating
 environment where researchers can discuss opportunities and challenges at 
the border of the two areas.

Important goals of the workshop are (i) to encourage the ongoing interactio
n between the formal methods and artificial intelligence communities, (ii) 
to identify innovative tools and methodologies, and (iii) to elicit a discu
ssion on open issues and new challenges.

This year edition will be held between 6th and 9th November 2023 (the preci
se day(s) will be announced later), as a hybrid workshop co-located with AI
xIA 2023 (http://www.aixia2023.cnr.it/), which is scheduled to be held in R
ome, Italy.

Participants must be registered to AIxIA 2023 (http://www.aixia2023.cnr.it/
). Overlay does not have an additional specific fee.

*** Invited speaker ***

Luciano Serafini - Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Italy

*** Call for contributions ***

We accept extended abstracts (4 pages + references) focusing on the interac
tion between Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods and on the issue of
 symbolic/sub-symbolic integration. Invited talks will complement the prese
ntations of contributed papers.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

    automata theory

    automated reasoning

    automated planning and scheduling

    controller synthesis

    formal specification languages

    formal verification

    game theory

    hybrid and discrete systems

    logics in computer science

    neurosymbolic approaches

    logic for neural networks

    neural networks for logic

    reactive synthesis

    runtime verification and monitoring

    satisfiability modulo theories and theorem proving

    specification and verification of machine/deep learning systems

    tools and applications

Contributed papers can present recent results at the border of the two fiel
ds, new research directions, challenges and perspectives. Presentation of r
esults recently published in other scientific journals or conferences is al
so welcome.

We plan to include all papers in the Proceedings of the event, published at
 CEUR Workshop Proceedings. CEUR WS proceedings are archival proceedings in
dexed by DBLP and Scopus.

Submitted papers should not exceed four (4) pages plus references. Authors 
are asked to use CEUR's LaTeX style, available at https://overlay.uniud.it/

Submissions must be in PDF format and will be handled via the EasyChair Con
ference system at the following address: https://easychair.org/my/conferenc
