                             TOOLS EUROPE 2007
                   Objects, Models, Components, Patterns
                  ETH Zurich, Switzerland 24-28 June 2007



  Call for Papers

TOOLS EUROPE 2007 will be devoted to the combination of technologies
that have emerged as a result of object technology becoming
"mainstream". Like its predecessors, TOOLS EUROPE 2007 combines an
emphasis on quality with a strong practical focus.

This is the 45th TOOLS conference. 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 is now revived to reflect the
maturing of the field and the new challenges ahead.

Contributions are solicited on all aspects of object technology and
neighbouring 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.

  Submission Guidelines

All contributions will be subject to a rigorous selection process by the
international Program Committee, with a stress on originality,
practicality and overall quality. Every paper will be reviewed by at
least 4 committee members. The acceptance rate will be published in the
conference proceedings; TOOLS is committed to a fair and extensive
peer-review process establishing a high standard in the area of modern
practices in software engineering.

By submitting a paper to TOOLS, authors warrant that the work is
original and that the paper or a similar contribution is neither
published nor considered for publication elsewhere. Submissions should
follow the publication format of the Journal of Object Technology (JOT).
Papers should be limited in size to 20 single-spaced pages. Further
details are available from the website.

  Important Dates

Deadline for technical papers: February 1, 2007, midnight Zurich time
Author notification:  April 15, 2007
Camera-ready copy due:  May 15, 2007

The proceedings will be published as a special issue of the Journal of
Object Technology.

TOOLS EUROPE will also include workshops and tutorials (June 24), a
poster session, and a venture forum (June 28). See the corresponding
calls for contributions.
