TOOLS EUROPE is devoted to the combination of technologies that have
emerged as a result of object technology becoming "mainstream". Like its
predecessors, TOOLS EUROPE 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; many of 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
related 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. Topics include:

* Object technology, including programming techniques, languages, tools
* Testing of object-oriented systems
* Patterns, pattern languages, tool support for patterns
* Distributed and concurrent object systems
* Real-time object-oriented programming and design
* Experience reports, including efforts at standardisation
* Applications to safety- and security-related software
* Component-based programming, modelling, tools
* Aspects and aspect-oriented programming and modelling
* Frameworks for component-based development
* Trusted and reliable components
* Model-driven development and Model-Driven Architecture
* Domain specific languages and language design
* Tools and frameworks for supporting model-driven development
* Language implementation techniques, compilers, run-time systems
* Practical applications of program verification and analysis
* Open source solutions & Reproduction studies

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