    Workshop on Software Product Line Development in Dynamic Adaptive 

                               (SDAE @ ECOOP 2011)

                                Call for Papers

                    to be held in conjunction with ECOOP 2011:
                European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming 2011

With the increasing demand for software systems in a large variety of 
environments, software
companies need to minimise development time and effort to remain 
competitive. Over the years,
systematic reuse by means of component technology have become the staple 
means to attain these
goals. In particular Software Product Lines (SPL) have become a popular 
and effective means to
effectively support families of software products.

However, SPLs are expected to provide reuse opportunities for a 
prolonged period of time. This
longevity exposes the SPL to a massively dynamic and adaptive 
environment as requirements
specifications evolve, new development techniques are introduced and new 
reuse opportunities
surface. This requires a new type of SPL that can dynamically respond to 
such changes, both from
the set of products it supports as well as the actual SPL infrastructure 

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in 
the field of SPL development
in dynamic adaptive environments. We solicit the submission of novel 
research on how SPL
development can best address these ever changing influences. We also 
invite submissions of
experience reports from industry on the causes, consequences and success 
stories of dealing with
SPL development in dynamic adaptive environments.


The topics of the workshops include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Variability identification (static/dynamic)
- Variability representation (static/dynamic)
- Variability implementation (static/dynamic)
- Variability reasoning (static/dynamic)
- Managing runtime variants
- Aspect-oriented modeling for runtime variability
- Self-management
- Dynamic variability management
- Models for changes and uncertainty
- Product line architecture for runtime variability


+ Workshop paper submission deadline: 15 April, 2011 (23:59 Apia, Samoa 
+ Author Notification: 20 May, 2011
+ Workshop full program disseminated: 25 May, 2011
+ SDAE @ ECOOP 2011: 25 July, 2011


The workshop will be a one day event aimed at stimulating discussion 
between presenters,
discussants and other participants. After a paper has been presented, it 
is discussed by two pre-
assigned discussants, after which a free discussion with all 
participants follows. The workshop is
concluded with a discussion among all participants to identify key 
research problems and areas to
form a research agenda for the community. This program will be 
complemented with an opening
keynote an informal interaction possibilities during coffee breaks and 


Prospective participants are invited to submit a 3-8 page position paper 
in standard ACM SIG
Proceedings format 
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedingstemplates). All papers must
be submitted in PDF format. All submissions will be reviewed by members 
of the program
committee and the organising committee for quality and relevance to 
ECOOP. Each paper will be
reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Accepted papers will be published on 
the workshop website.

Submissions should be sent to sdae[at]gmail.com.
