About STAF

Software Technologies: Applications and Foundations (STAF) is a federation of leading conferences on software technologies. It was formed after the end of the successful TOOLS federated event (http://tools.ethz.ch) in 2012. The participating conferences focus on practical and foundational advances in software technology covering a wide range of aspects including formal foundations of software technology, testing and formal analysis, graph transformations and model transformations, model driven engineering, and tools.

STAF 2016 will be hosted at TU Wien located in the center of Vienna. Vienna, the capital of Austria, is a city of over 1.8 million inhabitants. It is one of the renown cultural centers of Europe with an eventful history. TU Wien is among the most successful technical universities in Europe and is Austria's largest scientific-technical research and educational institution. For 200 years, TU Wien has been a place of research, teaching and learning in the service of progress.
