First International Workshop on Automated Configuration and Tailoring of Applications
Held in conjunction with the 25th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering
Antwerp Belgium, 20 September 2010
With the increasing number of applications and the importance of software in our daily lives, it is inevitable that in the near future end-users will be directly involved in configuring and tailoring applications to match their requirements. Such a scenario has several implications for software engineering practices. Major attention will have to be paid to automation of software configuration approaches and tailoring of applications. Automation is crucial, as end-users are typically not software engineers.
Topics of Interest
Topics of interest focus on configuration and end-user interaction techniques for tailoring software applications. We particularly encourage research papers based on industrial experience and empirical studies. Workshop topics include but are not limited to:
* End-user involvement in configuration
* Dynamic architectures and variability
* Software and service configuration approaches
* Service-oriented architectures and service discovery
* Variability modelling tools, including feature modelling and road-mapping tools
* Integration of existing software development life-cycle tools into end-user product customization management
* Applied formal methods that help to automate configuration and adaptation
* Software ecosystems and implications for end-users
* Deadline for submissions: Monday, June 21, 2010
* Notification of acceptance: Monday, July 19, 2010
* Final papers due: Friday, July 30, 2010
We are seeking research papers, experience reports, and position papers not exceeding 10 pages. We also encourage the submission of papers presenting visions for future research and tool demonstrations. Submissions must conform to the IEEE proceedings 8.5x11", two-column format and should explain how the (proposed) research or solution contributes to the automation of product configuration and tailoring of applications. Submissions are selected based on originality, novelty, and relevance to the workshop topics, as well as on their suitability for triggering discussions. Papers must be submitted electronically through the Easychair conference management system in PDF format. The workshop proceedings will be included on the memory stick that contains the ASE conference proceedings and will also be published online as CEUR Workshop proceedings.
