5th Workshop on Exception Handling
Call for Papers
June 9, 2012
Zurich, Switzerland 
in conjunction with ICSE 2012 

Following the success of previous workshops held 
in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2008, this workshop will provide a forum for 
presenting and discussing research on exception handling and fault 
tolerance in all area of software development and use. The workshop 
aims at covering the whole software life cycle, methodological as well 
as technical issues, modelling techniques or linguistic mechanisms. 
In particular, we will be interested in discussing a number of research 
open questions.

The workshop is intended to cover a wide range of 
topics, from theoretical foundations to and empirical software engineering 
studies of exception handling techniques. Topics of interest include 
the following (but not limited to):

- Exceptions in software processes
- Exceptions in the software life-cycle: requirements engineering, 
specifications, architectural design, modelling and programming, 
predictive models, model transformation, verification, debugging, 
testing, documentation, refactoring, variability management, static 
analysis, metrics, quality models, etc.
- Exception handling for and with new software artefacts (e.g. aspects, 
components, features, services, etc)
- Exception handling in today’s applications (distributed, ubiquitous, 
ambient, web-based, cloud, etc)
- Exception handling and software fault tolerance
- Empirical studies of exception handling
- Recommender systems for exception handling code
- Design patterns and anti-patterns, architectural styles, and good 
programming practice.

Authors are requested to submit a position paper in 
the PDF format. We invite
- traditional position papers (5-7 pages in the Springer LNCS format) 
- short position papers (1-2 pages in the Springer LNCS format). 

Papers should describe innovative and ongoing works, thoughts, lessons 
learned, or points of view with respect to one or more workshop topics. 
Moreover we especially encourage authors to present their experience 
and/or novel ideas on how to provide a modern software engineering 
treatment of exception handling (shorter format). The papers chosen for 
presentation will offer different or novel perspectives on the workshop 
topics and they must have a high potential for generating issues that will 
stimulate the discussions. Papers will be refereed by at least three reviewers.

The EasyChair submission site will be open in mid January 2012. 
The information will appear on the workshop web site.

Important dates:
17 February 2012 - Workshop paper submissions due
19 March 2012 - Notification of workshop paper authors
29 March 2012 - Submissions of camera-ready papers
