Workshop on
Empirical Evaluation of Software Composition Techniques
(ESCOT 2010) at AOSD'10
16 March 2010

Important Dates:
Paper submission: 8 January, 2010
Acceptance notification: 8 February, 2010
Final paper: 15 February, 2010

Empirical evaluation is a key activity to enable us to reach evidence
and learn about the quality of our software artefacts. With
aspect-oriented (AO) and related composition techniques, such as model
composition techniques, collaboration languages, and feature-oriented
programming, fast gaining wide attention in both research and industry
environments, there is a pressing need to define proper assessment
mechanisms, techniques, and methods to evaluate these new composition
techniques. In fact, empirical evaluation is a deep concern to
researchers and practitioners in the area of software composition

The ESCOT workshop is intended to cover wide range of topics on
evaluation of aspect-oriented and related composition techniques, from
theoretical foundations to assessment frameworks and empirical studies.
We encourage authors to present novel ideas, critiques of existing work,
and practical studies and experiments. We also welcome the submission of
position papers in all aspects of empirical evaluation of composition
techniques, including (but not limited to) the following:

* Lessons learned
* Empirical studies
* Comparative studies between different composition techniques
* Evaluation frameworks
* Software metrics and quality models
* Estimation models
* Validation of assessment methods for software composition techniques
* Assessment methods and tools to different phases of the software
* Development of predictive models of defect rates and reliability
from real data
* Infrastructure issues, such as measurement theory, experimental
design, qualitative modeling and analysis approaches

Submission and Submission Format
The format of the workshop is discussion-oriented that provides in
addition to formal presentation also short presentations, followed by
discussions, and focused discussion groups. Authors who plan to
contribute with a paper are requested to submit a position paper in PDF
format to reach the ESCOT co-organizers by January 8, 2009. Submitted
papers can be regular submissions (up to 6 pages) as well as position
papers (up to 3 pages). Papers will be refereed by at least three
reviewers. Moreover, we *especially* encourage authors to present their
experience and/or novel ideas on how to evaluate composition techniques.
Such papers should offer different or novel perspectives on the workshop
topics and they must have a high potential for generating issues that
will stimulate the discussions.

The submission system is available via the workshop's webpage:

The papers should be formatted according to the ACM SIG Proceedings
format and submitted via the workshop's submission system.
