TOOLS 2008 is the 46th TOOLS conference. Started in 1989, TOOLS
conferences, held in Europe, the USA, Australia, and China have played a
major role in the development of object technology field; many of the
seminal concepts were first presented at TOOLS. After an interruption of
four years, the conference is now revived to reflect the maturing of the
field and the new challenges ahead.

TOOLS EUROPE 2008 will be devoted to the combination of technologies that
have emerged as a result of object technology becoming "mainstream". Like
its predecessors, TOOLS EUROPE 2008 combines an emphasis on quality with a
strong practical focus. It will include both scientific and experience
conference papers, workshops, tutorials, a poster session, and a venture

21 papers have been accepted after a rigorous selection process by the
international Program Committee, with an emphasis on originality,
practicality and overall quality. Topics addressed this year by selected
papers include model-driven engineering, aspect-orientation,
component-based languages, and language reflection.

In 2008, TOOLS EUROPE is co-located with several other events, including
SEAFOOD 2008, the International Conference on Model Transformation (ICMT)
2008, the Web 2.0 Pattern Mining workshop, and several other workshops and
tutorials. Details of all co-located events can be found on the TOOLS web
