    Call for Papers

TOOLS EUROPE 2008 will focus on the combination of technologies that have
emerged through objects and object technology becoming mainstream. TOOLS
EUROPE 2008 combines an emphasis on quality with a strong practical focus.

This is the 46th TOOLS conference. Started in 1989, TOOLS conferences, held
in Europe, the USA, Australia, China and Eastern Europe, have played a 
major role in the development of object technology field; many of the 
seminal concepts were first presented at TOOLS. The TOOLS series was 
successfully restarted in 2007.

Contributions are solicited on all aspects of object technology and
neighbouring fields, in particular model-based development, component-based
development, and patterns (design, analysis and other applications); more
generally, any contribution addressing topics in advanced software
technology fall within the scope of TOOLS. Reflecting the practical 
emphasis of TOOLS, contributions showcasing applications along with a sound
conceptual contribution are particularly welcome. For a non-exclusive list
of potential topic areas see the TOOLS Web site.

In 2008, TOOLS EUROPE will be co-located with several other events,
including SEAFOOD 2008 and the International Conference on Model 
Transformation (ICMT) 2008. Details of co-located events can be found on 
the TOOLS web site.

    Submission Guidelines

All contributions will be subject to a rigorous selection process by the
international Program Committee, with a stress on originality, practicality
and overall quality. Every paper will be reviewed by at least 4 committee
members. The acceptance rate will be published in the conference
proceedings; TOOLS is committed to a fair and extensive peer-review process
establishing a high standard in the area of modern practices in software

By submitting a paper to TOOLS, authors warrant that the work is original
and that the paper or a similar contribution is neither published nor
considered for publication elsewhere. The TOOLS proceedings will be a 
volume in the new Springer LNBIP series, and papers should be formatted
accordingly. Final camera-ready submissions should be at most 20 pages in
length in LNBIP format. We recommend that you use this format for preparing
your initial submission.
