SATToSE 2018

11th Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution

July 4 - 6, 2018
Athens, Greece

11th edition of SATToSE will take place in Athens (Greece) on 4–6 July 2018. 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, exchange ideas, improve their communication skills, attend and contribute technology showdown and hackathons.

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

Type of Submissions:
We solicit extended abstracts of 2–5 pages in one of the following forms:
- Work in Progress: Early ideas and achievements that you want to share with the community and get feedback on.
- Publication Summary: Overview of research results already published or ready to be submitted to a conference or a journal.
- Tutorial: Are you familiar with a general Software Engineering-related technique or tool? Delivering a tutorial is about demonstrating a general technique or tool
- Artifact Presentation: Technical explanation of important features of an artifact (e.g., tool, library, data set, test suite, methodology)
