TOOLS 2007 is the 45th TOOLS conference. Started in 1989, TOOLS
conferences, held in Europe, the USA, Australia, and China 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.

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. It will include both
scientific and experience conference papers, workshops, tutorials, a
poster session, and a venture forum.

24 papers have been accepted after a rigorous selection process by the
international Program Committee, with an emphasis on originality,
practicality and overall quality. Topics addressed this year by selected
papers include model-driven engineering, aspect-orientation,
component-based languages, and language reflection.

TOOLS also includes a number of workshops, starting on June 24th, on
topics such as variability management and programming languages, MDD,
and software education. Note that it is STILL POSSIBLE to include
selected workshops on themes related to TOOLS, or working group meetings
etc.; please contact [log in to unmask] or
