-- 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 is an annual event which takes place in Europe each spring since1998. The eighth meeting, ETAPS 2005, will take place 2-10 April 2005 in Edinburgh, Scotland, hosted by the University of Edinburgh.
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 will take place 4-8 April 2005.
-- SATELLITE EVENTS --
The ETAPS 2005 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Satellite Events 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 2005 Satellite Events will be held immediately before and after the main conferences, on 2-3 and 9-10 April 2005.
