Call For Papers

Sixth International Workshop on Variability Modelling of Software-Intensive
Systems (VaMoS)

Leipzig, Germany, January 25-27, 2012

Submission: October 30, 2011
Notification: November 27, 2011

with keynotes by:

Paulo Borba, Centro de Informatica, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, BR
Charles Krueger, BigLever Software, Inc., USA


== Abstract ==

Managing variability is a major issue in the development, maintenance, and
evolution of software-intensive systems. To be managed effectively and
efficiently, variability must be explicitly modeled. As in VaMoS'11, the
upcoming workshop goes beyond its predecessors by addressing variability more
widely, including variability in requirements, architecture, implementation,
validation, and verification as well as evolution of variability -- just to
name the most important of the related issues.

The aim of the VaMoS workshop series is to bring together researchers from
various areas dedicated to mastering variability to discuss advantages,
drawbacks, and complementarities of various approaches, and to present new
results for mastering variability throughout the whole life cycle of systems,
system families, and product lines.

The workshop will feature invited keynotes by Paulo Borba and Charles Krueger
as well as peer-reviewed paper presentations.

== Important Dates ==

Submission deadline: October 30, 2011
Notification of acceptance: November 27, 2011
Workshop in Leipzig: January 25-27, 2012

== Workshop Format ==

VaMoS 2012, like the five previous VaMoS workshops, will be a highly
interactive event. Each session will be organized such that discussions among
presenters of papers, discussants and other participants are stimulated.
Typically, after a paper is presented, it is immediately discussed by
pre-assigned discussants, after which a free discussion involving all
participants follows. Each session is closed by a general discussion of all
papers presented in the session.

The workshop language is English. Attendance is open to authors of accepted
papers, invited speakers, organizers, PC members, and to guest visitors who
commit to become assigned as discussants of papers.

== Topics (non-exclusive) ==

- Variability across the software life cycle
- Separation of concerns and modularity
- Evolution and adaptivity
- Variability mining
- Reverse engineering for variability
- Feature, aspect, and service orientation
- Software configuration management
- Software economic aspects of variability
- Visualization and management of variability
- Formal reasoning and automated analysis of variability
- Application domains (e.g., embedded and information systems)
- Programming languages and tool support
- Case studies and empirical studies

== Submissions ==

We look forward to receiving the following types of submissions:

- Research papers describing novel contributions to the field of variability.

- Problem statements describing open issues of theoretical or practical nature.

- Reports on positive or negative experiences with techniques and tools related
to VaMoS.

- Surveys and comparative studies that investigate pros, cons and
complementarities of existing VaMoS-related approaches.

- Research-in-progress reports including research results at a premature stage.

- Vision papers stating where the research in the field should be heading

- Tool demonstrations describing the variability-related features of CASE tools.

The length of the submitted papers should be between 4 and 8 pages in ACM
proceedings format (
Details on how to submit will be available on the VaMoS web site:

== Publication ==

The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the ACM Conference
Proceedings Series, which includes a publication in the ACM digital library.
Previous editions of VaMoS have been indexed in the DBLP repository:

== Venue ==

VaMoS will be hosted by the University of Leipzig, Germany.
