Workshop date: July 2, 2013

Workshop summary
The Eclipse platform has played a very significant role in the
evolution of software engineering research over the last few years as
it has provided mature infrastructure for the development of
orthogonal but interoperable prototypes in areas including model
driven engineering, code analysis, data visualisation, software
measurement and testing and language development. The academic
community has in turn embraced Eclipse and has contributed several
tools back as open source projects (such as IMP, GEF3D, Mylyn, ATL,
Epsilon etc) - some of which have been brought under the umbrella of
the Eclipse Foundation.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a venue where developers of
research-oriented software engineering tools built on top of Eclipse
can demonstrate the most recent developments in their tools, provide
insights on issues encountered when using these tools in practice,
obtain feedback, exchange expertise, and engage in fruitful
discussions with like-minded researchers. The workshop will also help
bring together tool developers and existing or candidate users. In its
first incarnation (Academics Modelling with Eclipse - co-located with
ECMFA 2012), the workshop was focused on Model Driven Engineering
tools for Eclipse and attracted 10 submissions (7 of which were
accepted for publication). This year, we have decided to broaden the
scope of the workshop to accommodate topics researched in the ECOOP
and ECSA communities.

To maintain a strong Eclipse focus, all papers will need to provide an
Eclipse update site (and possibly more detailed instructions) through
which the presented tool can be installed on a clean Eclipse

Best paper prize
The paper with the greatest combined score during the peer review
stage will be awarded the best paper prize, a Google Nexus 7 Android
tablet (32GB + mobile data model:
In the event of a tie, the workshop organisers will have the casting
vote. The conference organisers thank the develop group
(http://www.develop-group.de) for sponsoring the best paper prize.

Selection procedure
All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the
program committee. Papers must be submitted in PDF format and strictly
adhere to the ACM SIG proceedings format. We advocate two types of
papers: tool demonstration papers which should not exceed 4 pages in
size, and regular papers which should not exceed 10 pages including
all text, references, appendices and figures. Paper submissions will
be made electronically via the workshop submission web page, using the
EasyChair service. All submissions must be accompanied by a link to a
screencast demonstrating the tool presented. All submissions must be
original work, and must not have been previously published, nor be
under consideration for publication, elsewhere. At least one author of
each accepted paper must register for the conference and participate
in the workshop.

Publication plans
We aim to publish accepted papers in the ACM Digital Library through
the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series.
For the first edition of the workshop we organized an Elsevier Science
of Computer Programming special issue
(http://www.win.tue.nl/~mvdbrand/SCP-EST/).  We aim to have a special
issue of a journal also for the second edition of the workshop.
