ETAPS 2017: 22-29 April 2017, Uppsala, Sweden
ETAPS conferences accept two types of contributions: research papers and tool demonstration papers. Both types will appear in the proceedings and have presentations during the conference.
ESOP and FoSSaCS accept only research papers. TACAS has more categories, see http://www.etaps.org/2017/tacas.
A condition of submission is that, if the submission is accepted, one of the authors attends the conference to give the presentation.
Submitted papers must be in English presenting original research. They must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere (this does not apply to abstracts). In particular, simultaneous submission of the same contribution to multiple ETAPS conferences is forbidden. The proceedings will be published in the Advanced Research in Computing and Software Science (ARCoSS) subline of Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
Papers must follow the formatting guidelines specified by Springer at
and be submitted electronically in pdf through the Easychair author interface of the respective conference.
Submissions not adhering to the specified format and length may be rejected immediately.
FASE will use a light-weight double-blind review process as in 2016. Authors are asked to omit their names and institutions; refer to prior work in the third person, just as prior work by others; not to include acknowledgements that might identify them.
FASE, FOSSACS and TACAS have a page limit of 15 pp for research papers (excl bibliography of max 2 pp), whereas POST allows at most 20 pp (excl bibliography of max 2 pp) and ESOP has a page limit of 25 pp (excl bibliography of max 2 pp).
Additional material intended for reviewers but not for publication in the final version - for example, details of proofs - may be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page limit. ETAPS reviewers are at liberty to ignore appendices and papers must be understandable without them.
In addition to regular research papers, TACAS solicits also case study papers (at most 15 pp, excl bibliography of max 2 pp).Both TACAS and FASE solicit also regular tool papers (at most 15 pp, excl bibliography of max 2 pp).
The rationale of a separate page limit for the bibliography is to remove the possibility to win space for the body of paper by cutting the bibliography, a practise that has a negative effect on our competitiveness as a community.
Submissions should consist of two parts:
ESOP and FOSSACS do not accept tool demonstration papers.
