REVE 2022 - 10th International workshop on Reverse Variability Engineering
held in conjunction with SPLC2022 - 26th International Software Product Line Conference, Graz, Austria, September, 2022

Software Product Line migration remains a challenging endeavor. From organizational issues to purely technical challenges, there is a wide range of barriers that complicates SPL adoption. This workshop aims to foster research about making the most of the two main inputs for SPL migration: 1) domain knowledge and 2) legacy assets. Domain knowledge, usually implicit and spread across an organization, is key to define the SPL scope and to validate the variability model and its semantics. At technical level, domain expertise is also needed to create or extract the reusable software components. For their part, legacy assets use to be, for instance, similar product variants (e.g. requirements, models, source code etc.) that were implemented using ad-hoc reuse techniques such as clone-and-own. Bottom-up approaches to automatically extract variability management related artifacts could be proposed, applied, validated and improved in this domain. Therefore, REverse Variability Engineering (REVE) focuses on automatic, semi-automatic or manual processes for the extraction or refinement of SPL assets.

- To provide a meeting point for researchers and practitioners in the area
- To review and formulate a research agenda in reverse engineering for variability
- To identify and gather a corpus of case studies and benchmarks to benefit the research and practitioner community

Workshop Topics
We will encourage submissions that push the state of the art and practice in the following topics (but not limited to):
- Experience reports on SPL migration
- Organizational issues on SPL migration
- Static, dynamic or information retrieval techniques for legacy assets analysis
- Feature identification and location techniques
- Feature constraints discovery
- Feature model synthesis
- Extraction of reusable components
- Clone detection techniques
- Visualization techniques during SPL migration
- Product Line Architecture reengineering
- Refactoring theories and techniques for SPLE
- Tacit knowledge and collaboration in SPL migration
- Mining variability from software repositories
- Literature reviews on reverse engineering in SPLE
- Metrics and measurements for SPL migration
- Industrial experiences of SPL migration
- Tool support for SPL migration

Important dates
- Paper submissions: June 14, 2022
- Paper notifications: July 1, 2022
- Final version of papers: July 7, 2022
- REVE 2022 Workshop: 12 or 13 September 2022. To be defined soon
- SPLC 2022 Conference: 12-16, September 2022

Submission details
Submission types: Authors interested in participating in the workshop are requested to submit either:
- Regular paper (max. 8 pages) that presents original research or industrial experience reports.
- Short paper (4 pages) that describes sound new ideas and concepts that are under research or experimental studies at industrial settings.

Format: Submissions should use the ACM SIGS proceedings format.
Submission: All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished original work and must not have been submitted anywhere else for publication.
