Software Technologies: Applications and Foundations (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 in 2012, providing a umbrella organisation, with a steering committee that aims to provide continuity. The STAF federated event runs annually; the conferences that participate may vary from year to year, but all focus on practical and foundational advances in software technology. The conferences address all aspects of software technology, from object-oriented design, testing, formal approaches to modelling and verification, transformation, model-driven engineering, aspect-oriented techniques, and tools. STAF 2019 will bring together:

  • 12th International Conference on Model Transformation (ICMT)
  • 12th International Conference on Graph Transformation (ICGT)
  • 15th European Conference on Modelling Foundations and Applications (ECMFA)
  • 12th Transformation Tools Contest (TTC)
  • 1st STAF Junior Researcher Community Event (STAF-JRC)

STAF 2019 will be held between July 15-19 within the premises of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. STAF 2019 will also host a number of satellite events including workshops between July 15-19. Workshops will provide a collaborative forum for groups of typically 15 to 35 participants to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are intended as a forum for lively discussion on innovative ideas, recent progress, or practical experience on specific aspects, specific problems, or domain-specific needs. Each workshop should provide a balanced distribution of its time for both presentation of papers and discussions. We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly-interactive workshops. Both research-oriented and applied topics are welcome. The duration of each workshop is either half day or full day.
