# Call for Papers

## Why choose ETAPS?

- ETAPS is one of the world’s leading for a for research on software science, with a history of more than 25 years.
- The proceedings of ETAPS appear in gold open access, with no article processing charge for the authors specifically.
- ETAPS has low participation fees for all and students in particular.

## What is new in 2023?

- ESOP, FASE, and newly also FoSSaCS welcome voluntary submissions of artefacts for evaluation after paper acceptance; the outcome will not change the paper acceptance decision.
- Presentations of the test-of-time-award and the doctoral- dissertation-award winners will take place.
- A plenary session for TOOLympics will be organised.

## MAIN CONFERENCES (24-27 April 2023)

- ESOP: European Symposium on Programming (PC chair: Thomas Wies, New York University)
- FASE: Fundamental Approaches to Software Engineering (PC chairs: Leen Lambers, BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, and Sebastián Uchitel, University of Buenos Aires)
- FoSSaCS: Foundations of Software Science and Computation Structures (PC chairs: Pawel Sobocinski, Tallinn University of Technology, and Orna Kupferman, Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
- TACAS: Tools and Algorithms for the Construction and Analysis of Systems (PC chairs: Sriram Sankaranarayanan, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO, and Natasha Sharygina, University of Lugano)

ETAPS’23 will also host another edition of TOOLympics, organised by Dirk Beyer, Fabrice Kordon, and Arnd Hartmanns.

- ESOP: Mooly Shagiv (Tel Aviv University, Israel)
- FASE: Sven Apel (Saarland University, Germany)
- Tutorial speakers: TBA


- Paper submission: October 13, 2022, 23:59 AoE
- TACAS artefact submission deadline: November 10, 2022
- Rebuttal (ESOP, FoSSaCS, partially TACAS): Tuesday 6 December – Thursday December 8, 2022
- Paper notification: December 22, 2022
- ESOP, FASE, FoSSaCS artefact submission deadline: January 5, 2023

The four main conferences of ETAPS 2023 solicit contributions of the following types. All page limits are given excluding the bibliography.

- ESOP: regular research papers of max 25 pp
- FASE: regular research papers and empirical evaluation papers of max 18 pp,
new ideas and emerging results (NIER) papers of max 8 pp,
tool demonstration papers of max 6 pp (+ mandatory appendix of max 6 pp),
- FoSSaCS: regular research papers of max 18 pp
- TACAS: regular research papers, case study papers and regular tool papers of max 16 pp, tool demonstration papers of max 16 pp

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

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. We plan ETAPS 2023 as an on-site conference; nonetheless, remote attendance and presentation will be made possible.

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.

Submissions must follow the formatting guidelines of Springer’s LNCS (use the llncs.cls class) 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.

ESOP, FASE and TACAS 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.

ESOP and FoSSaCS will use an author rebuttal phase. TACAS will use rebuttal for selected submissions (those in the grey zone).

## Artefact submission and evaluation

Regular tool paper and tool demonstration paper submissions to TACAS must be accompanied by an artefact submitted shortly after the paper. The artefact will be evaluated, and the outcome will be considered in the paper’s acceptance decision.

Authors of research papers and case study papers may submit an artefact for evaluation after receiving the acceptance notifications. The outcome of the artefact evaluation will not change the paper acceptance decision.

ESOP, FASE, and FoSSaCS will accept artefact submissions; however, participation in it is voluntary; the artefact submission deadline is after the paper notification deadline. The outcome will not alter the paper acceptance decision.

For specific instructions regarding artefacts, see the web pages of the individual conferences.


The proceedings will be published in the Advanced Research in Computing and Software Science (ARCoSS) subline of Springer’s LNCS series. The proceedings volumes will appear in gold open access, so 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 will remain with the authors.


The strongest papers from the four conferences will be nominated for the ETAPS best paper awards of EAPLS, EASST and EATCS, and the SCP best tool paper award.

The ETAPS test-of-time award will be granted, recognising outstanding papers published at ETAPS more than ten years in the past.

The Doctoral Dissertation Award will be granted to promote and recognise an outstanding dissertation in the research areas covered by the four main ETAPS conferences.

## SATELLITE EVENTS (22-23 April 2023)

A number of satellite workshops and other events will take place during the weekend before the main conferences.

In particular, there will be a PhD student mentoring workshop organised by Caterina Urban and Wolfgang Ahrendt.


ETAPS 2023 will take place in Paris, France. The conferences and satellite events will be hosted at Sorbonne Université and IHP (Institut Henri Poincaré), respectively. They are located in the very centre of the city, in the famous historic district of Quartier Latin. The new museum of mathematical sciences of IHP and the historical mathematics library are also in the same buildings as the satellite events. Several museums, churches and historical buildings can be visited in this area. The convenient location allows for accessing most places in Paris by public transport. ETAPS is organised by the MeFoSyLoMa community, which gathers all researchers on formal methods for software and hardware systems in the Île-de-France region.
