Call for Papers IWPSE-EVOL'09

Joint ERCIM Workshop on Software Evolution and
International Workshop on Principles of Software Evolution

ANNIVERSARY EDITION - "The Future of Software Evolution"

Co-located with the 7th joint ESEC/FSE Conference
24-25 August 2009, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This workshop is a merger of the annual ERCIM Workshop on Software
Evolution and the International Workshop on Principles of Software
Evolution. The rationale for a common event is to capitalize on the
synergies to be found when theorists and practitioners meet.


For this year's anniversary edition, the special theme of the workshop
"The Future of Software Evolution". We particularly welcome submissions
that take a historical perspective on a particular facet of software
evolution research, practice or education, argue for the current
challenges, and speculate on what the future might bring.

Other topics sought include, but are not limited to:
- Application areas: distributed, embedded, real-time, ultra large
and self-adaptive systems, web services, mobile computing, information
systems, etc.
- Paradigms: support and barriers to evolution in aspect-oriented,
agile, component-based, model-driven and open source software,
service-oriented architectures, etc.
- Technical aspects: co-evolution and inconsistency management of
software artefacts, impact analysis and change propagation, dynamic
reconfiguration and updating, architectures and notations for
evolvability, etc.
- Formal aspects: Theories, principles, and models of software
adaptation of evolutionary concepts and measures from other
disciplines, etc.
- Managerial aspects: effort estimation and risk analysis for software
evolution, processes explicitly supporting evolvability, etc.
- Empirical studies: quantitative or qualitative studies of the
context (organisations), of how developer teams, code and other
artefacts evolve, etc.
- Practical aspects and industrial applicability of any of the above


Four types of submissions are possible: short position and tool papers
(up to 5 pages) and long research and industrial papers (up to 10
Position papers may present wild and speculative ideas, and will be
on the potential to generate interesting discussions at the workshop.
Position papers addressing the workshop's theme are especially welcome.
Tool papers may describe tools developed in academia or industry. The
workshop will include one or more sessions for tool demos. Research
should describe innovative research, while industrial papers may
the application or adaptation of known solutions to industrial case
studies, and reflect on lessons learnt.
