Call for Papers (deadline: 15 January 2009)

TOOLS EUROPE 2009 will be devoted to the combination of technologies that have emerged as a result of object technology becoming "mainstream". Like its predecessors, TOOLS EUROPE 2009 combines an emphasis on quality with a strong practical focus.

Started in 1989, TOOLS conferences, held in Europe, the USA, Australia,
China and Eastern Europe, 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 was revived
in 2007 to reflect the maturing of the field and the new challenges ahead
and has become a yearly event.

Contributions are solicited on all aspects of object technology and
neighboring fields, in particular model-based development, component-
based development, and patterns (design, analysis and other applications);
more generally, any contribution addressing topics in advanced software
technology fall within the scope of TOOLS. Reflecting the practical
emphasis of TOOLS, contributions showcasing applications along with a sound
conceptual contribution are particularly welcome. For a non-exclusive list
of potential topic areas see the conference Web page.

All contributions will be subject to a rigorous selection process -
maximum acceptance rate of 25% - by the international Program Committee,
with a stress on originality, practicality and overall quality. The
proceedings should be published in Springer LNBIP. For detailed submission
information see the conference page.
