6th Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution
SATToSE 2013

8-10 July 2013 – Bern (Switzerland)


SATToSE is the Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for
Software Evolution. Its 6th edition takes place in Bern
(Switzerland)on 8-10 July 2013. Past editions of SATToSE saw
presentations on software visualization techniques, tools for
co-evolving various software artifacts, their consistency management,
run-time adaptability and context-awareness, as well as empirical
results about software evolution.

The goal of SATToSE is to gather both undergraduate and graduate
students to showcase their research, exchange ideas, improve their
communication skills, attend and contribute technology showdown, and

SATToSE will host invited talks, and will foster the interactions
between the participants, stimulating lively debates and discussions
around the topics of interest of the event.


Contributions are solicited on all aspects of software and model
evolution, practices and technologies. In particular, we encourage
submissions about the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:

- Software analysis and visualization techniques to support software evolution
- Object and Aspect Identification
- Program Transformation and Refactoring
- Data Reverse Engineering
- Data-intensive systems evolution
- Process-intensive systems evolution
- Empirical studies in maintenance
- Software evolution for emerging paradigms
- Managerial aspects and process models for software evolution
- Formalisms, theories, formal approaches, methods and languages for
expressing and understanding model-driven software evolution
- Coupled evolution of meta-models, models, and transformations
- Classification of (co-)evolution scenarios
- Supporting processes and tools for managing model-driven evolution
- Conformance checking, inconsistency management, synchronization,
differencing, comparison, versioning, impact analysis of evolving
- Empirical studies
- Industrial needs, case-studies and experiences


- Juan de Lara (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain)
- Gregor Engels (University of Paderborn, Germany)
- Paul Klint (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, The Netherlands)
- Marc Pantel (FéRIA-IRIT-ENSEEIHT, France)
- Bernhard Shaetz (Fortiss, Germany)


During the hackathon, the participants exercise methods and tools of
interest in software and model evolution. The expectation is that the
hackathon produces a corpus of samples in such fields, which may be
useful, for example, as a benchmark or a point of reference in these
areas of research.


If you would like to contribute a presentation to the seminar, please
submit a proposal through Easychair
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sattose2013). To submit
your contribution you have to specify:

- title of the presentation (3-10 words)
- authors
- extended abstract (1-2 pages in LNCS style)
- status of the work (under development / under submission / published)

All the presented slides and pointers to related resources will be
collected and will be made available.

While you are submitting your proposal, you might also want to
consider contributing to the interesting technology showdown, and
hackathons that are organized at SATToSE.


Abstract submission: April 12, 2013
Notification of acceptance: April 26, 2013
SATToSE dates: July 8-10, 2013
