Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers in English presenting original research. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. In particular, simultaneous submission of the same contribution to multiple ETAPS conferences is forbidden. Papers should be submitted electronically in Postscript form. Contact the relevant programme committee chairman if electronic submission is impossible or if you have no access to WWW.

The proceedings of each main conference will be published as a separate volume in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Final papers will be no more than 15 pages long in the format specified by Springer-Verlag at the url

It is recommended that submissions adhere to that format and length. Submissions that are clearly too long may be rejected immediately. E-mail addresses and fax numbers of the authors should be included on the title page.

Information on how to submit your paper will be found soon on each conference's web-page (follow the links above).

EATCS (European Association for for Theoretical Computer Science), EAPLS (European Association for Programming Languages and Systems), and EASST (European Association on Software Science and Technology) will offer a best paper awards at ETAPS 2002.
