FAMOOSr 2009 - 3rd Workshop on FAMIX and Moose in Reengineering

Co-located with WCRE 2009, Lille, France

We solicit experience reports and position papers (2-4 pages, IEEE format). Experience reports will be expected to discuss meta-modeling and software analysis using, but not limited to, FAMIX or Moose. Position papers will be expected to describe new directions and challenges for software analysis infrastructures, like FAMIX or Moose.

Papers may address issues along general themes, including but not limited to:
Analysis specific meta-models for evolution data, dynamic traces, bug entries, etc...
Meta-modeling in reengineering tools
Visualization techniques.
Analysis techniques: clustering, data mining, machine learning, pattern matching, probabilistic approaches, etc...
Mechanisms for tool composition and rapid tool prototyping.
Reusability of research: making research results and tools available to and reusable by the community.
Persistency and manipulation of models and meta-models.

Submissions are not limited to FAMIX and Moose or to their active users. We welcome any related ideas.

During the workshop, authors are expected to present their ideas using a short format, lasting 3 to 7 minutes, in order to spawn vivid discussions between participants. More information about this format can be found at:
