Call for contributions and participation
            MASPEGHI 2015
MechAnisms for SPEcialization, Generalization and inHerItance
Workshop in conjunction with ECOOP 2015
Prague, Czech Republic, Sunday, 5th July, 2015

The MASPEGHI series of workshops, the latest of which took place
at ECOOP 2013 (Montpellier, France), continues.

Most papers presented in this workhop series in the past have been
in the areas of programming languages and software engineering.
However, the exchange of ideas with other fields would be very useful.
We therefore welcome also submissions related to databases, knowledge
discovery and representation, modelling and design methods, for example.

The workshop is concerned at least with:
- the design of inheritance-related reuse mechanisms, including their
  dynamic semantics, static analysis, permissions and visibility;
- software engineering issues, including metrics, interactions with
  methodologies, and consequences for quality parameters such as
  maintainability and comprehensibility.
Authors primarily interested in implementation issues should consider
instead submitting to the ICOOOLPS workshop, also to be held in conjunction
with ECOOP 2015.

For the first time, we solicit two kinds of submissions:
1. position papers of up to 2 pages,
2. technical papers of up to 5 pages.
Position papers will be only lightly reviewed, and accepted papers
will be made available only on the workshop website.
Technical papers will be formally refereed by a Programme Committee,
and the final versions of accepted papers will be published in the ACM
Digital Library (unless the authors do not want that).
