ETAPS 2010

European Joint Conferences on Theory And Practice of Software

March 20-28, 2010
Coral Beach Resort, Paphos, Cyprus


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 is an
annual event which takes place in Europe each spring since 1998. The
thirteenth conference, ETAPS 2010, takes place between March 20-28
2010 in Paphos, Cyprus, organized by the University of Cyprus.

The main conferences of ETAPS are:

- FOSSACS: Foundations of Software Science and Computation Structures
- FASE:        Fundamental Approaches to Software Engineering
- ESOP:        European Symposium on Programming
- CC:            International Conference on Compiler Construction
- TACAS:     Tools and Algorithms for the Construction and Analysis of Systems

These conferences take place March 22-26, 2010.


The ETAPS 2010 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Satellite
Events (workshops, tutorials, etc.) that will complement the main ETAPS
conferences. They should fall within the scope of ETAPS. This
encompasses all aspects of the system development process, including
specification, design, implementation, analysis and improvement, as well
as the languages, methodologies and tools which support these
activities, covering a spectrum from practically-motivated theory to
soundly-based practice. Satellite Events provide an opportunity to
discuss and report on emerging research approaches and practical
experience relevant to theory and practice of software.

ETAPS 2010 Satellite Events will be held immediately before and after
the main conferences, on March 20-21 and March 27-28, 2010.


Researchers and practitioners wishing to organize Satellite Events are
invited to submit proposals in ASCII, PDF or Postscript format by e-mail
to [log in to unmask]

A proposal should not exceed two pages and should include:

- Satellite Event name / acronym
- the names and contact information of the organizers
- the preferred period: March 20-21 or March 27-28
- the duration of the workshop: one-day or two-day event
- 120-word description of the workshop topic for later use in publicity
- a brief explanation of the workshop topic and its relevance to ETAPS
- a schedule for paper submission, notification of acceptance and final
versions (the latter no later than January 20, 2010, more information on
that is to be announced)
- expected number of participants
- any other relevant information, like event format, invited speakers,
publication policy, demo sessions, special space requirements, etc.

The proposals will be evaluated by the ETAPS 2010 organizing committee
on the basis of their assessed benefit for prospective participants to
ETAPS 2010. The titles and brief information about accepted Satellite
Events will be included in the ETAPS 2010 web site, call for papers and
call for participation.

Satellite Events organizers will be responsible for
- producing the event's call for papers and call for participations
- publicising the event through specialist mailing lists etc. to
complement publicity for ETAPS as a whole
- hosting and maintaining a web site for the event
- reviewing and making acceptance decisions on submitted papers
- producing the event proceedings, if any; facilities for printing will
be made available by the ETAPS organizers
- scheduling workshop activities in consultation with the local organizers

Prospective organizers may wish to consult the web pages of previous
satellite events as examples:

ETAPS 2010 will be held in Cyprus. Cyprus is the third biggest
island in the Mediterranean and one of the newest members of the
European Union. It is an island state and its main source of income
is tourism and services.
Paphos has an air of holiday charm combined with history, and
olden-day elegance is lent to the town by its classical style buildings
in the upper part of town which leads to the shopping area. The
lower part of the town - known as Kato Paphos - has a life of its own,
down near the sea, home of the harbour, the fish tavernas, souvenir
shops and several beautiful hotels with important archaeological sites
all around them.
