ETAPS 2020 Joint Call for Papers

Information on this webpage is preliminary and subject to revision.

Important dates

Submission instructions

The four conferences of ETAPS 2020 solicit contributions of the following types:

  • ESOP: regular research papers of max 25 pp (excluding bibliography)
  • FASE: regular research papers and empirical evaluation papers of max 18 pp (excluding bibliography), tool demonstration papers of 6 +6 pp
  • FoSSaCS: regular research papers of max 18 pp (excluding bibliography)
  • TACAS: regular research papers, case study papers and regular tool papers of max 18 pp (excluding bibliography), tool demonstration papers of 6 pp

For definitions of the different paper types and specific instructions, where they are present, see the webpages of the individual conferences.

The rationale for exempting the bibliography from the page limit  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.

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings and have presentations during the conference. 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 They must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere (this does not apply to abstracts).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.

Submissions must follow the formatting guidelines of Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science 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 double-blind reviewing. 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.

Regular tool paper and tool demonstration paper submissions to TACAS must be accompanied by an artifact. The artifact will be evaluated and the outcome will be taken into account in the acceptance decision of the paper. Authors of accepted TACAS regular research papers and case study papers will be invited (but not required) to submit an artifact after paper acceptance notification, which will also be evaluated.

ESOP, FoSSaCS and, partially, TACAS will use an author rebuttal phase.

Publication

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. Similarly to ETAPS 2018 and 2019, the proceedings of ETAPS 2020 will appear in gold open access, meaning that the published versions of all papers will be available for everyone to download from the publisher's website freely, from the date of online publication, perpetually. The copyright of the papers wiil remain with the authors.

The publisher's charges for gold open access will be paid by the conference (funded with the participation fees of all participants). There will be no added cost for authors specifically.
