            Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, 6-11 April 2024




ETAPS is the primary European forum for academic and industrial researchers
 working on topics relating to software science. ETAPS, established in 1998
, is a confederation of four annual conferences accompanied by satellite wo
rkshops. ETAPS 2024 is the twenty-seventh event in the series.

-- Why choose ETAPS? --

  * ETAPS is one of the world's leading fora 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.
  * All constituent conferences provide artifact evaluation.
  * In addition to the conference, ETAPS also unites the software science
    community with activities such as a blog on software science, a PhD 

    workshop, and sessions on diversity and inclusion.

-- What is new in 2024? --
  * New submission categories at ESOP - "Experience reports" and "Fresh 

  * Alignment of the artifact evaluation process of the different conferenc

The four main conferences of ETAPS 2024 solicit contributions of the follow
ing types. All page limits are given **excluding the bibliography**.

  * ESOP: regular research papers of max 25 pp, experience reports of max
    15 pp, and fresh perspectives providing new insights on programming
    languages and systems of max 15 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 6 pp

For definitions of the different paper types and specific instructions, whe
re they are present, see the web pages of the individual conferences.

All accepted papers will appear in Springer proceedings and have presentati
ons during the conference. A condition of submission is that, if the submis
sion is accepted, one of the authors attends the conference to give the pre
sentation. We plan ETAPS 2024 as an on-site conference.

Submitted papers must be in English, presenting original research. They mus
t be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. In particular
, simultaneous submission of the same contribution to multiple ETAPS confer
ences is forbidden.

Submissions must follow the formatting guidelines of Springer's LNCS (use t
he llncs.cls class) and be submitted electronically in pdf through the Easy
chair author interface of the respective conference. Submissions not adheri
ng to the specified format and length may be rejected immediately.

ESOP, FASE, and TACAS will use double-blind reviewing (in the case of TACAS
, only for regular research papers). Authors are asked to omit their names 
and institutions; refer to prior work in the third person, just as prior wo
rk by others; not to include acknowledgments that might identify them.

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

Artifact submission and evaluation

Regular tool paper and tool demonstration paper submissions to TACAS must b
e accompanied by an artifact submitted shortly after the paper. The artifac
t will be evaluated, and the outcome will be considered in the paper's acce
ptance decision.

For research paper and case study paper submissions, pre-paper-acceptance s
ubmission of an artifact is optional; if an artifact is submitted at this p
oint, it will be handled as described above.

Alternatively, authors of papers of these categories may submit an artifact
 for evaluation after the paper has been accepted. The outcome of the artif
act evaluation will then not change the paper acceptance decision.

ESOP, FASE, and FoSSaCS will accept artifact submissions; however, particip
ation in it is voluntary; the artifact submission deadline is after the pap
er notification deadline. The outcome will not alter the paper acceptance d

For ESOP, artifacts may be submitted with an accompanying short 5 page expe
rience report (including 1-page bibliography) that will appear in the confe
rence proceedings.

For specific instructions regarding artifacts, see the web pages of the ind
ividual conferences.


The proceedings will be published in the Advanced Research in Computing and
 Software Science (ARCoSS) subline of Springer's LNCS series. The proceedin
gs volumes will appear in gold open access, so the published versions of al
l papers will be available for everyone to download from the publisher's we
bsite freely from the date of online publication, perpetually. The copyrigh
t of the papers will remain with the authors.

-- AWARDS --

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

The ETAPS Test-of-Time Award will be granted, recognizing outstanding paper
s published at ETAPS more than ten years in the past.

The ETAPS Test-of-Time Tool Award acknowledges the importance of reliable a
nd well-maintained research tools and the significant effort that their cre
ation and maintenance entails.

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

All nominated papers will be highlighted in the program.

-- SATELLITE EVENTS (6-7 April 2024) --

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


ETAPS 2024 will take place in Parc Alvisse Hotel 4*, Luxembourg City, Luxem
bourg. Located in a peaceful and green environment on the outskirts of Luxe
mbourg City, just a 10-minutes drive from the city center and the airport, 
the Parc Hotel Alvisse opens its doors to you on a vast and refurbished com
plex for the greatest comfort of its customers. This luxury hotel also has 
an indoor swimming pool, a bar/lounge, and a fitness center.
