About Staf

Software Technologies: Applications and Foundations (STAF) is a federation of a number of the leading conferences on software technologies. It was formed after the end of the successful TOOLS federated event ( in 2012, providing a loose umbrella organisation, with 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, mathematical approaches to modelling and verification, transformation, model-driven engineering, aspect- oriented techniques, and tools.

Conference organisers wishing to co-locate their event within the loose federated structure of STAF, or who are interested in hosting a future STAF event, are invited to contact members of the steering committee.


During the conference you can download the Springer LNCS proceedings of ICGT’ 15, ICMT’ 15, 
ECMFA’ 15, and TAP’ 15, and the workshop proceedings from the proceedings page.
