Research Papers Papers will be not more than 15 pages long (including figures and references). Additional material intended for the referee but not for publication in the final version - for example details of proofs - may be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page limit.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 referees are at liberty to ignore appendices, and papers must be understandable without them. Tool Demonstration Papers Submissions should consist of two parts: - The first part, at most four pages, should describe the tool presented. Please include the URL of the tool (if available) and provide information which illustrates the maturity and robustness of the tool. (This part will be included in the proceedings.) - The second part, at most six pages, should explain how the demonstration will be carried out and what it will show, including screen dumps and examples. (This part will be not be included in the proceedings, but will be evaluated.)

York Minster, on a site that has been the city's focus in Roman, Norman, and modern times, is among the finest Gothic cathedrals, and dominates the city. The Viking past is represented by preserved archaeological remains and reconstructed settlements in the world-famous Jorvik Centre. Since the nineteenth century, York has been a railway city, and houses the National Railway Museum, with its stunning collection of locomotives, carriages, and railway memorabilia. York is the ancient administrative capital of northern England, and is at the heart of the county of Yorkshire, dominating the Vale of York. To the west, the Pennines provide beautiful scenery and outdoor activities, whilst to the East, the Yorkshire Moors hold many beauty spots. There are local transport connections to East Coast resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. -- FURTHER INFORMATION AND ENQUIRIES -- For further information, do not hesitate to contact the following addresses. - GENERAL INFORMATION e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Gerald Luettgen ETAPS 2009 Local Organizing Chair - ORGANISING COMMITTEE Bob French, Jeremy Jacob, John McDermid, Richard Paige, Fiona Polack, Colin Runciman, Ginny Wilson, Alan Wood.
