Hello software evolution afficionados!
You probably already noticed that our annual BENEVOL seminar is back in town! Check out the website on benevol2022.github.io and the @BenevolWorkshop twitter account for the latest updates. Submission deadline is 15 June 2022.
After having consulted the informal steering committee, we decided to move BENEVOL much earlier than usual, on 12-13 september already rather than the usual late november-early december... This decision was motivated by our desire to meet in live, and this is much more likely to happen in september than in november. (Remember that last year the live benevol had to be converted into a virtual one last minute due to incread corona restrictions.)
We realise that this implies that the submission deadline is much earlier than usual, but on the other hand, the submission requirements are lightweight. You can submit short papers of work in progress (that can be published in the benevol postproceedings in CEUR), or even decide to submit a presentation abstract of some work that you have submitted or published elsewhere recently (in a conference or journal) and that you would like to share with, and get feedback from, our local software community. I am sure that you have something up your sleeve that would be of interest to our community!
And I almost forgot to mention that we have a great team of PC chairs, Eleni Constantinou and Mairieli Wessel that will take care of the technical programme. PhD students Natarajan and Pooya are helping out with the website and social media.
Contact anyone of us if you should have more comments about the event.
21st Belgium-Netherlands Software Evolution Workshop
12-13 September 2022
The goal of BENEVOL is to bring together researchers who are working in the field of software evolution and maintenance. BENEVOL offers an informal forum to meet and to discuss new ideas, important problems and obtained research results
The 21st edition of BENEVOL will be held in Mons on September 12-13, 2022; this is the first in-person edition of BENEVOL since Covid-19. The organizing team is looking forward to meeting once again in person and having fruitful discussions during BENEVOL!
Call for Papers:
Contributions are solicited on all aspects of software maintenance and evolution.
BENEVOL accepts submissions in two categories:
Technical papers (max 4 pages main text + 1 page of references) will undergo a mild yet constructive review. We explicitly solicit papers in the early stages of research, which are still rather rough around the edges and would benefit from feedback from the community. Technical papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee, assessing whether they are within the scope of BENEVOL (i.e., software maintenance and evolution) and meet its quality criteria. Authors will be asked to improve their paper and submit a camera ready version that will be published in the CEUR-WS.org workshop proceedings.
Presentation abstracts (max 1 page) report on research results without inclusion in the proceedings. They will only be reviewed for relevance and they will be made available on the website of the workshop. Presentation abstracts can either be novel research results that should not be included in the proceedings or results that have already been published, or that are ready to be submitted to a conference or a journal. Of particular interest are summaries that try to provoke discussion, initiate challenging new avenues, etc.
More information about the submission guidelines can be found on the BENEVOL website https://benevol2022.github.io/
