13th Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution
July 1 - 3, 2020
The 13th edition of SATToSE will be held virtually (originally planned to take place in Amsterdam) on July 1-3, 2020. Past editions of SATToSE saw presentations on software visualisation techniques, tools for co-evolving various software artefacts, their consistency management, runtime adaptability and context-awareness, as well as empirical results about software evolution.
The goal of SATToSE is to gather both undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their research, attend and contribute technology showdown and hackathons, exchange ideas and learn from senior/established researchers, as well help them improve their communication skills.
Call for Papers:
Contributions are solicited on all aspects of software and model evolution, practices, and technologies. In particular, we encourage submissions about the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:
- Supporting tools, processes, and models for managing software evolution
- Industrial needs, case studies and experiences
- Software analytics and visualisation techniques to support software evolution
- Empirical studies in evolution and maintenance
- Program transformation, refactoring, renovation, and migration
- Program and/or data reverse engineering
- Evolution of data-intensive or process-intensive systems
- Approaches of model-driven software evolution
- Software evolution for emerging paradigms
- Coupled evolution of meta-models, models, and transformations
- Classification of evolution scenarios
- Reliability and security aspects of software evolution
- Negative research results in software evolution
- Software ecosystem evolution
- Formalisms, notations, theories, methods, and languages for expressing software evolution
- Conformance checking, inconsistency management, synchronisation, differencing, comparison, versioning, impact analysis of evolving models
SaTToSE 2020 aims to increase the interaction between PhD students and more experienced researchers. For this reason, SATToSE will introduce for the first time the “mentor” concept. Each PhD student submitting a Work-in-Progress paper will have a senior member as a mentor during the seminar (different than their PhD supervisor). The goal is to stimulate discussion between PhD students and senior researchers to provide feedback on their research and promote discussions and collaborations.
Submission deadline: May 13, 2020
Notification of acceptance: June 4, 2020
Registration deadline (no registration fees, but registration is required): June 12, 2020
Camera-ready deadline: June 12, 2020

UCLouvain invites applications for a tenure track or tenured full time position in Computer Science
Vacancy Reference : 23958 / EPL 074 / 2020 (to be quoted in any correspondence)
[ https://jobs.uclouvain.be/PersonnelAcademique/job/An-academic-position-in... ]
UCLouvain is a comprehensive university offering, in the context of the present position, the opportunity of cross-disciplinary research and teaching collaborations. The position is attached to the Louvain School of Engineering and the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Applied Mathematics that offer opportunities for diverse and stimulating teaching as well as an environment to carry out ambitious research. The Louvain-la-Neuve site offers a unique modern living environment inside a naturally preserved neighbourhood, conveniently located to the heart of Europe. The Charleroi site offers a quality environment in higher education, at the heart of a region in full economic development, centred on new technologies.
Description of the mission
The successful candidate will be involved in the implementation and teaching of a new bachelor's degree in computer science being created on the site of Charleroi, as well as in teaching in the computer science degrees at Louvain-la-Neuve, in particular the bachelor of computer science, the master in computer science engineering and the master in computer science. Bachelor level courses are taught mainly in French, master level courses exclusively in English.
The successful candidate will develop his or her research activities in the main research domains in computer science at the ICTEAM institute, thus facilitating his or her integration within the existing team:
• Software Systems and Networks
• Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
• Software Engineering and Programming Systems
Experience in application areas such as medicine or life sciences will be considered an asset.
Nevertheless, this list should not be considered exhaustive; the position remains open to candidates with strong skills in other areas of computer science as well.
The involvement in the creation of a new bachelor’s degree in computer science should be seen by the candidate as a unique opportunity to increase the visibility and development of computing in Belgium and the city of Charleroi in particular.
Given the involvement in the creation and teaching of the bachelor’s degree in computer science in Charleroi, knowledge of the French language, spoken and written, is essential.
Application deadline: 3rd February 2020
Deadline for recommandation letters: 14th February 2020
Starting date: 1st September, 2020
