The European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software
(ETAPS) is the primary European forum for academic and industrial

ETAPS conferences accept two types of contributions: research papers
and tool demonstration papers. Both types will appear in the
proceedings and have presentations during the conference.  Submitted
papers must be in English presenting original research. They must be
unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere (neither
conference nor journal). In particular, simultaneous submission of the
same contribution to multiple ETAPS conferences is forbidden. One
author of each accepted paper must attend the conference to present
the paper.

Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF (preferably) or PS
(using Type 1 fonts). The proceedings will be published in the
Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Final papers
will be in the format specified by Springer-Verlag at the URL:


Submissions not adhering to the specified format and length may be
rejected immediately, without review.

Research Papers

Papers will be not more than 15 pages long (including figures and
references). Additional material intended for the referee but not for
publication in the final version - for example details of proofs - may
be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the
page limit. ETAPS referees are at liberty to ignore appendices, and
papers must be understandable without them.

Tool Demonstration Papers

Submissions should consist of two parts:

- The first part, at most four pages, should describe the tool
  presented. Please include the URL of the tool (if available) and
  provide information which illustrates the maturity and robustness of
  the tool. (This part will be included in the proceedings.)

- The second part, at most six pages, should explain how the
  demonstration will be carried out and what it will show, including
  screen dumps and examples. (This part will be not be included in the
  proceedings, but will be evaluated.)

Please note that FOSSACS does not accept tool demonstration papers.


At ETAPS 2009, 21 workshops and 4 tutorials will take place

-- YORK --

The City of York combines evidence of a history going back to Roman
times, tourist attractions, and a bustling modern city centre. York
Minster, on a site that has been the city's focus in Roman, Norman,
and modern times, is among the finest Gothic cathedrals, and dominates
the city. The Viking past is represented by preserved archaeological
remains and reconstructed settlements in the world-famous Jorvik
Centre. Since the nineteenth century, York has been a railway city,
and houses the National Railway Museum, with its stunning collection
of locomotives, carriages, and railway memorabilia. York is the
ancient administrative capital of northern England, and is at the
heart of the county of Yorkshire, dominating the Vale of York. To the
west, the Pennines provide beautiful scenery and outdoor activities,
whilst to the East, the Yorkshire Moors hold many beauty spots. There
are local transport connections to East Coast resorts of Scarborough,
Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay.
