The European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS)
is the primary European forum for academic and industrial researchers working
on topics related to Software Science. It is a confederation of five main
conferences, a number of satellite workshops and other events.

5 Conferences - 22 Satellite Workshops - Tutorials - Tool Demonstrations

ETAPS main conferences accept two types of contributions:

*   Research papers;
*   Tool demonstration papers.

Research papers:

Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers in English presenting
original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted
for publication elsewhere. In particular, simultaneous submission of the
same contribution to multiple ETAPS conferences is forbidden.

The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes
in Computer Science series. Final papers will be no more than 15 pages
long in the format specified by Springer-Verlag at
It is recommended that submissions adhere to that format and length.
Submissions that are clearly too long may be rejected immediately.

Instructions on how to submit are available at the URL of each individual
Tool demonstration papers:
Demonstrations of novel and state-of-the-art tools are also invited.
A submission should have a clear connection to one of the
main ETAPS conferences, possibly complementing a paper submitted separately.

Tool demonstrations are an integrated part of the ETAPS programme.
Selected demonstrations will be presented in ordinary conference sessions,
using state-of-the-art projection. The time allowed will be approximately 
the same as that for the presentation of a research paper. The demonstration
will be accompanied by the publication of a short paper (up to 4 pages) in
the proceedings of the relevant ETAPS conference, describing the main features
of the tool. There will be opportunities for follow-up demonstrations with
individuals and small groups.

Submissions should follow the instructions published in the URL of the
relevant conference. They should take the form of a self-contained tool
description of no more than 4 pages in the format specified by
Springer-Verlag at
The tool description should be accompanied by an appendix (not intended for
publication, and not included in the page limit) indicating which features
of the tool would be demonstrated - preferably with some sample screen
snapshots - followed by a detailed specification of the hardware, software,
and licensing requirements for installing and using the tool.

N.B. Tool demonstrations should not be confused with research contributions
to the TACAS conference, which emphasizes principles of tool design,
implementation, and use, rather than focusing on specific domains
of application.
