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 Software Product Lines (SPL) as well as
outside SPL in areas like models-at-runtime, self-adaptive systems,
ubiquitous computing, and specific application domains where runtime
adaptation and post-deployment activities are required.

Dynamic software product lines (DSPL) were established as a research
area under the assumption that product line concepts can be very
usefully applied in this context. Since its inception the
DSPL-workshop addresses the mission of supporting adaptive and
adaptable system development based on product line concepts. The lack
of maturity and consolidation of DSPL approaches stills needs
significant research effort to advance the state of the art. Also
synergies between other fields on adaptive systems and DSPL could
be explored and exploited more systematically. Our focus is to
extend the community of researchers and to provide a forum for the
discussion of current research on related topics.

TOPICS: The workshop will solicit papers covering the following areas
of DSPL embracing integrations and interactions between various fields
of adaptive systems and DSPLs:

Organization of DSPLs:
- Development approaches and organizational models to set a DSPL
- Comparison between conventional SPL, and DSPL and adaptive system models
- New activities required by a DSPL
- Upfront cost and post-deployment activities

Dynamic variability management:
- Managing runtime variants and variation points
- Runtime managers supporting variability
- Optimization of runtime variability solutions
- Variability constraints and dependencies managed at runtime
- Dynamic and multiple binding times
- Rebinding and reconfiguration after deployment
- Context variability analysis and design
- Integration of pre- and runtime variability

DSPL and software engineering:
- DSPL runtime requirements and architecture
- Dynamic component models and libraries
- Models at runtime supporting variability
- Trade-off analysis between adaptability and quality properties
- Tools supporting any aspect related to DSPL and dynamic variability
- DSPL as a dynamic Ecosystem

DSPL application domains:
- Role of dynamic variability in specific application domains (e.g.,
Automotive and smart vehicles, Critical systems, Drones, Cloud systems,
- Self-adaptive systems using dynamic variability techniques (e.g., WSN)
- Context variability for IoT software

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 ACM 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 SPLC proceedings.
