International Conference on Objects, Models, Components, Patterns

TOOLS EUROPE is devoted to the combination of technologies that have emerged as a result of object technology becoming “mainstream”. Like its predecessors, TOOLS EUROPE combines an emphasis on quality with a strong practical focus.

Started in 1989, TOOLS conferences, held in Europe, the USA, Australia, China and Eastern Europe, have played a major role in the development of object technology; many of seminal concepts were first presented at TOOLS. After an interruption of four years, the conference was revived in 2007 to reflect the maturing of the field and the new challenges ahead and has become a yearly event.
