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 - 13 Satellite Events - 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 Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted 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.

Proposals for half-day or full-day tutorials related to ETAPS 2003 are 
invited. Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their 
assessed benefit for prospective participants to ETAPS 2003. 

Proposals should include a description of the material that will be covered 
in the tutorial; a justification of the relevance of the tutorial for ETAPS 
2003; a short history of the tutorial if it has been given before; 
the duration of the tutorial; scope of the tutorial; the key learning 
objectives for the participants; the intended audience for the tutorial 
and required background; and the credentials for the instructor(s).
