Call for participation

Advances in Software Evolution
University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands
18 December 2009


Variations in the environment, advances in the technology and users'
experience on the software cause requirements of the software to change.
These requirement changes, in turn, cause the software systems to evolve.
Evolving a software system is a hard problem, as one need to find out the
locations to be modified, design the modifications with minimal impact
and modify the software such that it complies with the constraints of the
old parts. However, today's marketing demands do not allow too much time
to be spent on designing and testing the modifications. Usually, the
modifications are implemented with quick solutions hampering the quality
of the current software and, possibly, increasing the cost of future

In this workshop, a number of international experts will provide
insight in their approach to software evolution, focusing in particular
on model driven evolution, software design for evolution and tools that
aid the software evolution process.
