IWOCE 2009

International Workshop on Open Component Ecosystems

The 7th joint meeting of the European Software Engineering Conference
and the ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on the Foundations of Software
Engineering (FSE)
24 August 2009 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Call for papers

Over the last years, the composition of software parts is
increasingly considered a crucial operation to build and maintain
large software systems. The continuous and independent evolution of
readily available components suggested that open platforms can better
accommodate and manage them as normally happens in systems like open
source software distributions, Eclipse, and J2EE, just to mention a
few. The critical mass represented by such software components
requires organizations, such as companies, research groups, and open
source communities, to collaborate on custom software development,
implementation and shared services. Such infrastructures can be
regarded as ecosystems, i.e., collections of software projects that
possibly belong to organizations, developed in parallel by the
organizations, and able to integrate each other at assembly time,
during the configuration, and/or dynamically after the deployment.

The capability of modeling, analyzing, and predicting the component
behavior during these stages is intrinsically difficult and requires
techniques, algorithms, and methods which are both expressive and
computationally convenient in order to be engineered and conveyed in
practical projects. Moreover, when analyzing software ecosystems,
exploration and visualization cannot be neglected because of the large
amounts of information that are available about the ecosystem.


The goal of the workshop is to gather together both researchers and
practitioners active in open source software engineering, software
composition, algorithms, constraint programming, and model-driven
engineering to discuss, debate, exchange ideas, and outline common
solutions to the problem of static and dynamic component aggregations
in software ecosystems.

IWOCE 2009 will be held in Amsterdam as a satellite event of the 7th
joint meeting of the European Software Engineering Conference and ACM
SIGSOFT Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (ESEC/FSE
2009). IWOCE 2009 will host invited talks, technical sessions, and
panels. As a workshop, IWOCE 2009 will foster the interactions between
the participants, stimulating lively debates and discussions around
the topics of interest of the workshop.


Contributions are solicited from both academia and industry about
the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:

- Open source software engineering
- Design of software ecosystems
- Infrastructures and services for software ecosystems
- Formal analysis of component systems
- Component composition, configuration, and adaptation techniques
- Verification, validation, and testing techniques
- Predictability of component upgrade, installation, and removal
- Constraint programming and constraint solvers applied to component
- Model-driven techniques and metamodels for describing component
- Components systems and generative approaches
- Exploration and visualization techniques for complex software systems
- Global measurement, prediction, and monitoring of distributed and
service components
- Industrial experience using open source and component-based software
- Components in open source software distributions (eg. GNU/Linux
packages, Eclipse plugins, ...)

Submission guidelines

All submissions will be formally evaluated by at least three (3)
reviewers. Papers must be submitted as PDF and strictly adhere to the
ACM SIG proceedings format. Papers must not exceed ten (10) pages in
such format, including all text, references, appendices, and figures.
Paper submissions will be made electronically via the workshop
submission web page, using the EasyChair service. All submissions must
be original work, and must not have been previously published, nor be
under consideration for publication, elsewhere. At least one author of
each accepted paper should register for the conference and participate
in the workshop.

Important dates

Paper submission 3 June 2009
Notification of acceptance 20 June 2009
Camera-ready version due 26 June 2009
Workshop date 24 August 2009
