-- ABOUT ETAPS --

The European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software
(ETAPS) is the primary European forum for academic and industrial
researchers working on topics relating to Software Science. ETAPS,
established in 1998, is a confederation of five main annual confe-
rences, accompanied by satellite workshops and other events. ETAPS
2009 is the twelfth event in the series.

-- THE HOST CITY: YORK, UK --

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 (** sign up for the
ETAPS banquet which will be held in this stunning museum! **). York is
the ancient administrative capital of northern England and is at the
heart of the county of Yorkshire, dominating the Vale of York.

ETAPS will take place on the University of York's campus which mixes
iconic 1960s concrete buildings with stylish modern architecture. At
the centre is the largest artificial lake in England, which is
influential in giving York the highest ratio of ducks to students in
the country.
