Tenth International Workshop on Variability Modelling of
Software-intensive Systems  (VaMoS 2016)

Salvador, Brazil, January 27-29, 2016

Paper submission deadline: November 9, 2015
Notification of acceptance: December 7, 2015

Featuring keynotes by:

Bruce Watson, Stellenbosch University, South Africa
Marcos Martins Melo, Federal Data Processing Service (SERPRO), Brazil


== Description ==

Variability management is a major challenge in the development,
maintenance, and evolution of software-intensive systems. An important
precondition to the effective and efficient management of variability
is that it must be explicitly modelled. Thus VaMoS 2016 will focus
broadly on innovative work in the area of variability modelling and
management. We particularly invite contributions with a strong
variability modelling aspect, but also addressing the wider area of
variability management, e.g., requirements, architecture,
implementation, and evolution. The VaMoS workshop series aims at
bringing together researchers from different areas dedicated to
mastering variability to discuss advantages, drawbacks, and
complementarities of various approaches and to present new results for
mastering variability throughout the whole life cycle of systems,
system families, and product lines. The workshop will feature invited
keynotes by Bruce Watson and Marcos Martins Melo as well as
peer-reviewed paper presentations.

== Important Dates ==

Paper submission deadline: November 9, 2015
Notification of acceptance: December 7, 2015
Workshop in Salvador: January 27-29, 2016

== Workshop Format ==

VaMoS 2016, like the previous VaMoS workshops, will be a highly
interactive event. Each session is organized such that discussions
among presenters of papers, discussants and other participants are
stimulated. Typically, after a paper is presented, it is immediately
discussed by pre-assigned discussants, after which a free discussion
involving all participants follows. Each session is closed by a
general discussion of all papers presented in the session. The
workshop language is English. Attendance is open to authors of
accepted papers, invited speakers, organizers, PC members, and to
guest visitors who commit to become assigned as discussants of papers.

== Topics (non-exclusive) ==

-Variability across the software life cycle
-Separation of concerns and modularity
-Variability evolution
-Variability mining
-Reverse engineering for variability
-Feature, aspect, and service orientation
-Software configuration management
-Architecture and design approaches for variability
-Software economic aspects of variability
-Visualization and management of variability
-Adaptivity at runtime and development time
-Formal reasoning and automated analysis of variability
-Programming languages and tool support
-Case studies and empirical studies

== Submissions ==

We look forward to receiving the following types of submissions:
-Research papers describing novel contributions to the field of variability.
-Problem statements describing open issues of theoretical or practical nature.
-Reports on positive or negative experiences with techniques and tools
related to VaMoS
-Surveys and comparative studies that investigate pros, cons and
complementarities of existing VaMoS-related approaches.
-Research-in-progress reports including research results at a premature stage
-Vision papers stating where the research in the field should be heading towards
-Tool demonstrations describing the variability-related features of CASE tools.

The length of the submitted papers should be between 4 and 8 pages in
ACM proceedings format

International Conference Proceedings Series, which includes a
publication in the ACM digital library. Previous editions of VaMoS
have been indexed in the DBLP repository

== Venue ==

VaMoS will be hosted by Reuse in Software Engineering Group (RiSE) at
the Federal University of Bahia, Brazil.
