Eighth Seminar on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution
SATToSE 2015

6–8 July 2015 – Mons (Belgium)


SATToSE is the Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software
Evolution. Its 8th edition takes place in Mons (Belgium) from Monday 6 till
Wednesday 8 July 2015. In 2015, Mons is the European Capital of Culture.

The goal of SATToSE is to gather both undergraduate and graduate students
to showcase their research, exchange ideas, improve their communication
skills, attend and contribute technology showdown and hackathons – and to
interact with senior members of the research community. Past editions of
SATToSE saw presentations on software visualisation techniques, tools for
co-evolving various software artefacts, their consistency management,
runtime adaptability and context-awareness, as well as empirical results
about software evolution.

SATToSE will host invited talks, submitted talks, tutorials and a
hackathon, and will foster interactions among the participants, stimulating
lively debates and discussions around the topics of interest of the
event. We expect attendees to be active participants and not just passive
listeners – presenters should be open to and encourage questions and
discussions during their talks.


Contributions are solicited on all aspects of software and model evolution,
practices and technologies. In particular, we encourage submissions about
the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:

* Formalisms, notations, theories, methods, and languages for expressing
software evolution
* Supporting tools, processes, and models for managing software evolution
* Industrial needs, case studies and experiences
* Software analytics and visualisation techniques to support software
* Empirical studies in evolution and maintenance
* Program transformation, refactoring, renovation and migration
* Program and/or data reverse engineering
* Evolution of data-intensive or process-intensive systems
* Approaches of model-driven software evolution
* Conformance checking, inconsistency management, synchronisation,
differencing, comparison, versioning, impact analysis of evolving models
* Software evolution for emerging paradigms
* Coupled evolution of meta-models, models and transformations
* Mega-modelling evolution, and evolution of mega-models
* Classification of (co-)evolution scenarios
* Reliability and security aspects of software (co-)evolution
* Negative research results in software evolution


* Anita Sarma (University of Nebraska, Lincoln): Managing Socio-Technical
Dependencies in Distributed Software Development

* Martin Pinzger (University of Klagenfurt): The Knowledgeable Software


* Gregorio Robles (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos): The MetricsGrimoire
toolset – a mature, industrial-strength toolset to obtain data from
software repositories

* Massimiliano Di Penta (University of Sannio): Empirical Software


* This year's hackathon will expose participants to methods and tools an
empirical software engineering researcher may expect to encounter in her
daily life. Among others, we will cover techniques related to mining and
statistically analysing data from multiple online repositories (e.g.,
GitHub), and methods to centrally administer one's presence online (e.g.,
how to make updates simultaneously to all your LinkedIn, Stack Exchange,
Twitter, SlideShare, ResearchGate,, Skype, and Facebook
profiles after you change affiliation)


Contributions are managed through EasyChair:

There are three kinds of contributions:

* work in progress presentations (2–4 pages): early ideas and achievements
that you want to share with the community and get feedback on

* publication summaries (2–4 pages): overview of research results already
published or ready to be submitted to a conference or a journal

* technology showdown demonstrations (1 page): technical explanation of
important features of your framework, library or tool

To submit your contribution, you need to specify:

* title of the presentation
* list of author(s)
* extended abstract of your presentation
* desired category of your work

Contributions should be formatted in the CEUR WS one column style with page
numbers. See

All submissions will be screened for scope and compatibility by the program
committee. All contributions accepted for presentation will receive 10–30
minutes during the event for presentation and discussion, as well as a
chance to be updated after the event (to a 5–10 pages paper), to be
subsequently reviewed and published in a CEUR WS volume.

All the presented slides and pointers to related resources will be
collected and will be made available.


* Submission deadline: 2015–05–01
* Notification of acceptance: 2015–05–15
* Early registration deadline: 2015–06–01
* Closing of all registrations: 2015–06–22
* Workshop: 2015–07–06 to 2015–07–08


* General Chair: Tom Mens (University of Mons, Belgium)
* Program Chair: Anya Helene Bagge (University of Bergen, Norway)
* Hackathon Chair: Bogdan Vasilescu (UC Davis, USA)
* Local Organisation: Mathieu Goeminne


* Anya Helene Bagge (chair), Universitetet i Bergen, Norway
* Andrea Caracciolo, University of Bern, Switzerland
* Marianne Huchard, Université Montpellier 2, France
* Csaba Nagy, Université de Namur, Belgium
* Coen De Roover, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium
* Davide Di Ruscio, Università degli Studi dell'Aquila, Italy
