Call for Contributions
9th BElgian-NEtherlands software eVOLution seminar (BENEVOL 2010)
16 - 17 December, Lille, Fr

The 9th edition of the BElgian-NEtherlands software eVOLution seminar 
(BENEVOL 2010) will take place at Lille, France. This two-day seminar 
will be held on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 December 2010. The aim of the 
seminar is to bring together researchers from Belgium, The Netherlands 
and neighbouring countries to identify and discuss important principles, 
problems, techniques and results related to software evolution research 
and practice.

Although participation to the event is possible without sending in a 
contribution, we highly encourage potential participants to send in one 
of the following three kinds of contributions:
1. short position papers (up to 5 pages) describing work in progress or 
speculative ideas they wish to share with the community;
2. tool demonstrations (3 to 5 pages) describing tools supporting 
software evolution that have been developed in academia or industry;
3. full papers (up to 10 pages) describing novel and original research. 
These full papers will undergo peer-reviewing by an international 
program committee to assess if they are of sufficient quality for 
publication in an special issue of Science of Computer Programming journal.

Theme and Topics

The special theme of BENEVOL 2010 will be Software Adaptability and 
Software Maintenance, though submissions on any other topic related to 
software evolution are heartily welcomed as well. Suggested topics 
include, but are not limited to:

     * Dynamic adaptation, composition and reconfiguration of software 
and services
     * Embedded, adaptive and context-aware systems;
     * Foundations & paradigms: formal languages, semantics and theories 
for software adaptation and maintenance;
     * Empirical studies in maintenance: empirical results, case 
studies, experimentation design, measurement, quality models for 
     * Tool support for software evolution: tools to assist the 
evolution process, tools to ensure or to verify quality of the evolution 
process or of the evolving artifacts;
     * Data-intensive systems evolution: data evolution, reengineering 
data-intensive systems and databases;
     * Process-intensive systems evolution: process evolution, 
reengineering process-oriented systems;
     * Model-driven software evolution: models transformation, evolution 
and co-evolution of models, verification and validation of evolving 
models, quality of models and model transformations, modeling evolution, 
     * Software evolution for ?emerging? paradigms: Model-Driven, 
Aspect-Oriented, Service-Oriented, Open Source, Software Product Lines;
     * Managerial aspects and process models for software evolution: 
software re-engineering and quality improvement, inconsistency 
management and co-evolution;
     * Software analysis and visualisation techniques to support 
software evolution: static and dynamic analysis, change propagation, 
     * Data and process analysis techniques to support software 
evolution: data and process analysis, data and process mining.
