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. (TACAS has more categories, see below.)
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 They must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. 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 Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
Papers must follow the formatting guidelines specified by Springer at the URL
and be submitted electronically in pdf through the Easychair (HotCRP) author interface of the respective conference.
Submissions not adhering to the specified format and length may be rejected immediately.
Different ETAPS 2015 conferences have different page limits. Specifically, FASE, FOSSACS and TACAS have a page limit of 15 pages, whereas CC, ESOP and POST allow at most 20 pages. Additional material intended for reviewers but not for publication in the final version - for example, details of proofs - may be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page limit.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.
TACAS solicits not only regular research papers, but also case study papers.
Tool demonstration papers
Submissions should consist of two parts:
The first part, at most 4 pages, should describe the tool presented. Please include the URL of the tool (if available) and provide information that illustrates the maturity and robustness of the tool (this part will be included in the proceedings).
The second part, at most 6 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.)
ESOP and FOSSACS do not accept tool demonstration papers.
In addition to tool demonstration papers (max 6 pages in their case), TACAS solicits also longer tool papers (max 15 pages) adhering to specific instructions about content and organization.
