CALL FOR PAPERS

3rd International Workshop on Visualisation in
Software Product Line Engineering (ViSPLE 2009)

collocated with the

13th International Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2009)
August 24-28, 2009, San Francisco, CA, USA

=3D=3D MOTIVATION =3D=3D

To leverage the explicit and extensive use of shared software artefacts,
many companies use a product line approach to build different variants
of their products for use within a variety of systems. Product lines can
be large and could easily incorporate thousands of elements together =20
with
relationships between those elements. This makes product line management
and systematic product derivation extremely difficult.

This workshop aims at elaborating on the idea of using information and
software visualisation techniques to achieve the economies of scale
required to support variability management and product derivation in
industrial product lines.

Visualisation techniques have been proven to support improvement in both
the human understanding and effective use of computer software. The =20
workshop
will explore the potential of visual representations combined with use =20=

of
human interaction techniques when applied in a software product line
context. We aim to attract and bring together members from the =20
information
visualisation, software visualisation, and software product line =20
engineering
communities. We particularly welcome relevant contributions from =20
outside the
software product line community.

=3D=3D TOPICS =3D=3D

Topics of interest focus on visualisation and interaction techniques and
tools for managing large and complex software product lines. We =20
particularly
encourage research papers based on industrial experience and empirical
studies. Workshop topics include but are not limited to:

- Understanding large software product lines: Techniques and tools to =20=

support
the understanding of large and complex software product lines.
- Variability representation: Techniques and tools for coping with large
numbers of variation points.
- Visualisation of large data sets: General software visualisation =20
techniques
and tools for managing large data sets and their applicability in a
software product line context.
- Representation of features: Techniques and tools for representing =20
software
product line features, their requirements, and dependencies.
- Representation of software architecture: Techniques and tools for
representing software product line architectures.
- Product derivation support: Techniques and tools to support product
derivation.
- Product line evolution: Techniques and tools to support the =20
understanding
of evolutionary aspects in software product lines.
- Industrial case studies: Industrial examples and experience reports =20=

related
to managing complex software product lines.

=3D=3D SUBMISSIONS =3D=3D

We are seeking for research papers, experience reports, and position =20
papers
not exceeding 10 pages. We also encourage the submission of papers =20
presenting
visualisation research tools and demonstrations. Submissions must =20
conform to
the IEEE proceedings 8.5 x 11=94, two-column format and should explain =
how
the research contributes to the effective management of complex software
product lines.

Submissions are selected based on originality, novelty, and relevance =20=

to the
workshop topics, as well as on their suitability for initiating =20
discussions.
Papers must be sent in Microsoft Word or PDF format electronically to
visple2009@lero.ie. Submitted papers must be unpublished and should =20
not be
under review elsewhere. All presented papers will be published in the
workshop proceedings.

=3D=3D IMPORTANT DATES =3D=3D

Deadline for submission: June 05, 2009.
Notification of acceptance: June 19, 2009.
Final papers due: July 01, 2009.
