ETAPS 2021 Call for Satellite Events



Satellite event proposals deadline: 31 August 2020
Notification of acceptance: 15 September 2020



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. It is an
annual event held in Europe each spring since 1998. Its twenty-third
edition, ETAPS 2021, will take place in Luxembourg.

ETAPS 2020 main conferences

Scheduled for March 27 – April 1:

*ESOP: European Symposium on Programming
*FASE: Fundamental Approaches to Software Engineering
*FoSSaCS: Foundations of Software Science and Computation Structures
*TACAS: Tools and Algorithms for the Construction and Analysis of Systems


The ETAPS 2021 organizing committee invites proposals for satellite
events (workshops) that will complement the main 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 2021 satellite events will be held immediately before the main
conferences, on 27-28 March.


The organizers of an ETAPS 2021 satellite are expected to:

* create and maintain a website for the event,
* form a PC, produce a call for papers for the event (if appropriate),
* advertise the event through specialist mailing lists etc. to complement
   the publicity of ETAPS,
* review the submissions received and make acceptance decisions,
* prepare an informal (pre)proceedings for the event (if appropriate),

   defined by the ETAPS 2021 organizing committee,
* prepare and organize the publication of a formal (post)proceedings (if

   and distribute this to the registrants,
* provide the event with a meeting room of an appropriate size, A/V 
   coffee breaks and possibly lunch(es).

As a rule, ETAPS will not contribute toward the travel or
accommodation costs of invited speakers or organizers of satellite
