22st European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software
                           ETAPS 2019
            Prague, Czech Republic, April 6-12, 2019
                    Call for Satellite Events


The European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software
(ETAPS) is the primary European forum for academic and industrial
researchers working on topics relating to Software Science. It is an
annual event held in Europe each spring since 1998. Its twenty-second
edition, ETAPS 2019, will take place April 6-12, 2019 in Prague,
Czech Republic.

ETAPS 2019 main conferences, scheduled for April 8-12, are:

* ESOP: European Symposium on Programming
* FASE: Fundamental Approaches to Software Engineering
* FOSSACS: Foundations of Software Science and Computation Structures
* POST: Principles of Security and Trust
* TACAS: Tools and Algorithms for the Construction and Analysis of Systems


The ETAPS 2019 organizing committee invites proposals for satellite
events (workshops) that will complement the main conferences. They
should fall within the scope of ETAPS. This encompasses all aspects of
the system development process, including specification, design,
implementation, analysis and improvement, as well as the languages,
methodologies and tools which support these activities, covering a
spectrum from practically-motivated theory to soundly-based
practice. The committee especially encourages workshops on program
synthesis and on the development of approximate systems.

Satellite events provide an opportunity to discuss and
report on emerging research approaches and practical experience
relevant to theory and practice of software.

ETAPS 2019 satellite events will be held immediately before
the main conferences, on April 6-7.


The organizers of an ETAPS 2019 satellite are expected to:

* create and maintain a website for the event, as a part of the main
  ETAPS web page https://conf.researchr.org/home/etaps-2019
* form a PC, produce a call for papers for the event (if appropriate),
* advertise the event through specialist mailing lists etc. to
  complement the publicity of ETAPS,
* review the submissions received and make acceptance decisions,
* prepare an informal (pre)proceedings for the event (if appropriate),
* prepare the event's program complying with any scheduling
  constraints defined by the ETAPS 2019 organizing committee,
* prepare and organize the publication of a formal (post)proceedings
 (if desired).

The ETAPS 2019 organizing committee will:

* promote the event on the website and in the publicity material of
  ETAPS 2019,
* integrate the event's program into the overall program of the
* arrange registration for the event as a component of registration
  for ETAPS,
* collect a participation fee from the registrants,
* produce a compilation USB memory stick of the informal
  (pre)proceedings of the satellite events of ETAPS 2019 and
  distribute this to the registrants,
* provide the event with a meeting room of an appropriate size, A/V
  equipment, coffee breaks and possibly lunch(es).

As a rule, ETAPS will not contribute toward the travel or accommodation
costs of invited speakers or organizers of satellite events.


Researchers and practitioners wishing to organize satellite events are
invited to submit proposals to the workshop co-chairs via email:

* Milan Ceska (Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic)
ceskam at fit.vutbr.cz
* Ryan Culpepper (Czech Technical University in Prague)
ryanc at ccs.neu.edu

The following information is requested:

* the name and acronym of the satellite event
* the names and contact information of the organizers
* the duration of the event: one or two days
* the preferred period: April 6, April 7, April 6 - 7
* the expected number of participants
* a brief description (120 words approximately) of the event topic for
  the website and publicity material of ETAPS 2019
* a brief explanation of the event topic and its relevance to ETAPS
* an explanation of the selection procedure of contributions to the
  event, the PC chair and members, if known already, information about
  past editions of the event, if applicable
* any other relevant information, like a special event format, invited
  speakers, demo sessions, special space requirements, etc.
* a tentative schedule for paper submission, notification of
  acceptance and final versions for the (informal pre-)proceedings
  (the ETAPS 2019 organizing committee will need the final files by
  the end of Feb. 2019)
* the plans for formal publication (no formal publication, formal
  proceedings ready by the event, formal post-proceedings, publication
  venue - EPTCS or elsewhere)

The proposals will be evaluated by the ETAPS 2019 organizing committee
on the basis of their assessed benefit for prospective participants of
ETAPS 2019. Prospective organizers may wish to consult the web pages
of previous satellite events as examples:

Prague is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic, the
historical capital of Bohemia. Situated in the north-west of the
country on the Vltava river, the city is home to about 1.3 million
people. Prague has been a political, cultural and economic centre
of central Europe complete with a rich history. Founded during the
Romanesque and flourishing by the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque
eras, Prague was the capital of the kingdom of Bohemia and the main
residence of several Holy Roman Emperors, most notably of Charles IV.
It was an important city to the Habsburg Monarchy and its
Austro-Hungarian Empire. Prague is home to a number of famous cultural
attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of
20th-century Europe. Main attractions include the Prague Castle,
the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square with the Prague astronomical
clock, the Jewish Quarter, Petrin hill and Vysehrad. Since 1992, the
extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO
list of World Heritage Sites.

ETAPS 2019 is organized by the Charles University, the largest
university in the Czech Republic and the oldest university of central
Europe founded in 1348 by Charles IV.
