BENEVOL 2008 : The 7th BElgian-NEtherlands software eVOLution workshop
The 7th edition of the BElgian-NEtherlands software eVOLution workshop (BENEVOL 2008) took place at Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The two-day workshop hold on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 December 2008.
The aim of the workshop is to bring researchers to identify and discuss important principles, problems, techniques and results related to software evolution research and practice. Special theme of BENEVOL 2008 is Ensuring software quality in evolution.
We are very grateful to all participants, speakers and chairs for contributing to the success of BENEVOL 2008.
See you next year in Belgium!
- Deadline for submissions: November 9, 2008 at midnight (Amsterdam-Brussels time).
- Notification: November 14, 2008.
- Final version: November 23, 2008 at midnight (Amsterdam-Brussels time).
- Workshop: December 11-12, 2008.
We solicit contributions describing recent results or novel ideas. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
Model-driven software evolution: models transformation, evolution and co-evolution of models, verification and validation of evolving models, quality of models and model transformations, modeling evolution, meta-modeling;
Foundations & paradigms: objects, components, aspects, formal languages, semantics, theories for software evolution;
Empirical studies in evolution: empirical results, case studies, experimentation design, measurement, quality models for evolvability;
Tool support for software evolution: tools to assist the evolution process, tools to ensure or to verify quality of the evolution process or of the evolving artifacts;
Data-intensive systems evolution: data evolution, reengineering data-intensive systems and databases;
Process-intensive systems evolution: process evolution, reengineering process-oriented systems;
Software evolution in "emerging" paradigms: Model-Driven, Aspect-Oriented, Service-Oriented, Open Source, Software Product Lines;
Managerial aspects and process models for software evolution: software re-engineering and quality improvement, inconsistency management and co-evolution;
Software analysis techniques to support software evolution: static and dynamic analysis, change propagation, metrics;
Data and process analysis techniques to support software evolution: data and process analysis, data and process mining;
Embedded, adaptative and context-aware systems;
Dynamic adaptation, composition and reconfiguration of software and services.
Contributions solicited may either be
abstracts (a title and a short abstract), or
short papers 2-4 pages in the LNCS style
The conference language is English. PDF files of the submissions should be send to firstname.lastname@example.org . In case of acceptance the authors should submit LaTeX source file(s) for inclusion in the informal proceedings to be distributed during the workshop. Proceedings of BENEVOL 2008 will published as a technical report of Eindhoven University of Technology.
Prof. Ralf Lämmel (University of Koblenz) has cordially accepted our invitation and will give an invited talk entitled Tracking the evolution of grammar-like knowledge in software. The preliminary program can be found in the following document: Program Benevol 2008.pdf.
The workshop will take place in Academisch Genootschap, Eindhoven. Academisch Genootschap is located in a beautiful neighborhood in the center of Eindhoven, not far from the railway station.
