Workshop Goals
The concept of adaptation and self-adaptation of systems, in particular
at runtime
has caught the attention of the research community at large, both inside
the domain of SPL
as well as outside SPL in areas like models-at-runtime, self-adaptive
ubiquitous computing, etc. Dynamic software product lines (DSPL)
constitute an emerging
but promising research area where SPL concepts are entangled with
runtime variability mechanisms,
context information and runtime adaptation. However, the challenge to
create better and smarter
adaptable systems is still challenging. The workshop is intended as a
highly interactive forum
using a discussant format and to provide a forum for the exchange of
ideas, to establish cooperations,
and to bring industry and research together.

TOPICS: In this edition of DSPL series a renewed set of topics broaden
the scope of the workshop
and covering other related areas in the following topics, but not
limited to:

Organization of DSPL:
o	Development approaches and organizational models to set a DSPL
o	Comparison between SPL and DSPL models
o	New activities required by a DSPL
o	Upfront cost and post-deployment activities
Dynamic variability management:
o	Managing runtime variants and variation points
o	Runtime managers supporting variability
o	Optimization of runtime variability solutions
o	Variability constraints and dependencies managed at runtime
o	Relation between pre-runtime and runtime variabilities, their
properties and models
o	Multiple binding times and rebinding after deployment
o	Binding times in relation to different system’s operational models
o	Dynamic library loading mechanisms
DSPL and software engineering:
o	Runtime SPL requirements engineering
o	Runtime SPL architecture analysis
o	Dynamic component model for system of systems engineering
o	Trade-off analysis between adaptability and other qualities
o	Context-oriented features and runtime variability
o	Tools supporting any aspect related to DSPL and dynamic variability
o	Collaborative features at runtime
DSPL application domains:
o	Role of dynamic variability in specific application domains (e.g.,
Automotive and smart vehicles, Critical systems, Drones, Cloud systems,
o	Self-adaptive systems using dynamic variability techniques
o	Context variability for IoT software
o	Case studies
o	Applications of self-adaptation

We solicit short, thought-provoking papers reporting work in progress,
industrial experience,
and real-world examples. Full papers are also eligible and should report
mature research results.
Papers should be in formatted according to the standard IEEE Computer
Society Press
proceedings style guide, and submitted electronically in PDF format.
Papers should not exceed 6 (we recommend 4 pages for short versions).
Submissions should be submitted via:
Accepted papers of the workshop will be published in the IEEE FAS*W
