                15th International Conference on
         Fundamental Approaches to Software Engineering

                           ETAPS 2012
    European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software

                Tallinn, Estonia, 24 March - 1 April 2012

Conference Description
FASE is a member conference of the European Joint Conferences on
Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS), which is the primary
European forum for academic and industrial researchers working on
topics relating to Software Science. ETAPS 2012 is the fifteenth
joint conference in this series.

Important Dates
7 October 2011         : Submission deadline for abstracts (strict)
14 October 2011        : Submission deadline for full papers (strict)
16 December 2011       : Notification of acceptance/rejection
6 January 2012         : Camera-ready versions due (strict)
24 March - 1 April 2012: ETAPS 2012

Call for Papers
FASE is concerned with the foundations on which Software Engineering
is built. Submissions should not focus on the application or evaluation
of given methods, tools or techniques for their own sake but, rather,
the principles on which they are based and the way in which they
contribute to making Software Engineering a more mature and soundly-
based discipline. Contributions that combine the development of
conceptual and methodological advances with their formal foundations
and tool support are particularly encouraged. We welcome contributions
on all such fundamental approaches, including:

- Software Engineering as an engineering discipline, including its
   interaction with and impact on society;
- Requirements engineering: capture, consistency, and change management
   of software requirements;
- Software architectures: description and analysis of the architecture
   of individual systems or classes of applications;
- Specification, design, and implementation of particular classes of
   systems: adaptive, collaborative, embedded, distributed, mobile,
   pervasive, or service-oriented applications;
- Software quality: validation and verification of software using
   theorem proving, model-checking, testing, analysis, refinement
   methods, metrics or visualisation techniques;
- Model-driven development and model-transformation: meta-modelling,
   design and semantics of Domain Specific Languages, consistency and
   transformation of models, generative architectures;
- Software quality: validation and verification of software using
   theorem proving, model-checking, testing, analysis, metrics or
   visualisation techniques;
- Software processes: support for iterative, agile, and open source
- Software evolution: refactoring, reverse and re-engineering,
   configuration management and architectural change, or

ETAPS conferences accept two types of contributions: research papers
and tool demonstration papers. Both types of contributions will appear
in the proceedings and have presentations during the conference.

The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes
in Computer Science series. Final papers will be in the format specified
by Springer-Verlag at the URL: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
Submissions not adhering to the specified format and length may be  
immediately, without review. As electronical submission system we use
EasyChair. Please use http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fase2012
to submit your paper.

Research papers
Research papers will be not more than 15 pages long (including figures
and references). Additional material intended for the referee but not  
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  
ETAPS referees are at liberty to ignore appendices, and papers must be
understandable without them.

Tool demonstration papers
Tool demonstration papers should describe novel and state-of-the-art
tools. Submissions should consist of two parts. The first part, no more
than 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, no more than 6 pages, should explain how
the demonstration will be carried out and what it will show, including
screen dumps and examples. This part will not be included in the
proceedings, but will be evaluated.
