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.

In 2017, STAF will be hosted at Philipps-Universität Marburg. Marburg is located
in the heart of Germany, one train-hour to the north of Frankfurt. Its
population of 72,000 is made up of 25,000 students and 7,500 university
employees, rendering it a typical “university town”. As one of Germany’s oldest
universities, founded in 1527, Uni Marburg looks back on a long and rich
history. Traditionally focused on the humanities, Uni Marburg has recently
gained momentum in science and technology, notably in the medical, nano, and
material sciences. Touristic hot spots such as the castle and the beautiful old
town Oberstadt with its numerous bars and restaurants make Marburg highly
attractive for a visit.
