                             * CALL FOR JOURNAL PAPERS *


         Special Issue on Industrial Applications of Aspect Technology




             LNCS Transactions on Aspect-Oriented Software Development





                 Submission Deadline: September 30, 2009




More than a decade of research on Aspect-Oriented Software Development
(AOSD) has leveraged a large variety of aspect languages, tools and
methods across the entire software development life-cycle. Nonetheless,
one of the major impediments for industry adoption is the lack of
accessible success stories and experience reports on the application of
AOSD in commercial software projects. 

This special issue on Industrial Applications of Aspect Technology aims
at collecting such examples, experience reports and success stories of
applications of aspect technologies in industry, as well as work that is
inspired by AOSD but not explicitly named as such. We seek descriptions
of successful solutions using, building, extending, or integrating AOSD

This call explicitly solicits papers written from the perspective of
applying AOSD in a real-world, industrial setting. Therefore, the
criteria for acceptance are fundamentally different to those typically
used in academic work, such as the novelty of the applied approach and
the completeness of the literature study. Instead, the focus will be on
industrial relevance, lessons learned, and the evaluation of these
insights motivated  through experience in a real-world setting.


Topics of interest for the special issue on Industrial Applications of
Aspect Technology include, but are not limited to:


-Programming with aspects

  - Industrial applications built with AO languages or frameworks

  - Experience reports on adopting aspect oriented programming

    tools and techniques

-Aspects in Product Line Engineering

  - Aspects for implementing reusable core assets in domain engineering

  - Aspects for coping with evolution

  - Aspects to support product instantiation

-Aspects in middleware

  - Middleware that is implemented with the help of aspects

  - Middleware that offers aspect technology to application developers

-Aspects in modeling and Model Driven Development

  - Separation of concerns in models

  - Tools for modeling and weaving aspects and their application

  - Experience reports on combining MDD with AOSD

-Aspects for program comprehension

  - Methods and tools for conceptual separation of crosscutting concerns

-Aspects in requirements engineering

  - Methods and tools for mining aspects in requirements

  - Support for tracing crosscutting concerns from requirements to code

-Aspects for quality assurance and testing
