WMSWM 2010 : VII Workshop on Modern Software Maintenance
Call For Papers
The 7th Workshop on Modern Software Maintenance is a forum dedicated to discuss about alternatives to perform software maintenance and software reengineering, in a way that the maintenance process and the final product can be in conformance with software quality requirements. The topics of interest include, being not limited to:
* Modern software maintenance processes
* Metrics and quality of software maintenance
* Maintenance of non-traditional systems (web applications, component-based systems, aspect-oriented software, model-driven software, product lines, service-oriented software, etc.)
* Tool and environments for software maintenance
* Reverse engineering
* Static and dynamic analysis of software
* Visualization techniques for program comprehension
* Reengineering and system migration
* Software maintenance education
* Experimentation in software maintenance
* Model driven application and software maintenance
* Software maintenance management (risks management, configuration management, planning, and estimates)
* Legacy systems tests
* Economic aspects of software maintenance (maintenance cost, previous estimates of effort, etc.)
Submissions must be written in English or Portuguese. All submissions must follow SBC (Brazilian Computer Society) style format (available at SBC - http://www.sbc.org.br. All papers will be evaluated by, at least, 3 members of the program committee. There will be three types of submissions:
* Technical papers, presenting an interesting result for the advance of the research in the area. The judgment criteria are: workshop scope adequacy, relevance and technical quality. The work must be considered consistent, clear and original. The maximum paper size is 8 pages.
* Experience reports, presenting concrete data, lessons learned or any other fact relevant to the event. The judgment criteria are: workshop scope adequacy, practical application, presentation consistency, and contributions to the advance of maintenance practice. The maximum paper size is 4 pages.
* Challenge reports, presenting real industrial problems concerning maintenance that represent research challenges in the area from the academic point of view. The aim is not to describe hypothetical situations, but real challenges detected in concrete software maintenance environments. The judgment criteria are: workshop scope adequacy, relevance and presentation consistency. The maximum paper size is 2 pages.
Evaluation studies are desirable, although this is not a pre-requisite for WMSWM submission. Papers with original, new, and promising ideas are welcome. All papers must present comparisons with related work in the area. Technical papers must emphasize their contribution for software maintenance practice. Papers about practical experiments must describe the employed method and interpretation of the obtained qualitative and quantitative results.
All submissions must be electronically sent by JEMS system (https://submissoes.sbc.org.br) until the submission deadline. One of the authors must present the paper at the workshop. Finally, authors must respect the final version submission deadline, as well as subscription date for the workshop, in order for the paper to be included in workshop proceedings. All accepted papers will be available at the workshop site.
