ETAPS 2012: 24 March - 1 April 2012, Tallinn, Estonia
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 held in Europe each spring since 1998. The fifteenth edition, ETAPS 2012, will take place 24 March - 1 April 2012 in Tallinn, Estonia.
Tallinn is the capital city of Estonia, famous for its picturesque medieval Old Town, a World Heritage site. This year 2011, Tallinn, together with Turku in Finland, is the European capital of culture.
The main conferences of ETAPS are:
The ETAPS 2012 main conferences will take place 26-30 March 2012.
The ETAPS 2012 Organizing Committee invites proposals for satellite events (workshops, tutorials, etc.) that will complement the main ETAPS 2012 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.
The ETAPS 2012 satellite events will be held immediately before and after the main conferences, 24-25 March and 31 March - 1 April 2012.
