International Workshop on Aspect-Oriented Software Development (WAOSD 2004) September 27, 2004, Beijing, China (http://www.fit.ac.jp/~zhao/waosd2004/)
Held in conjunction with 2nd IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods (SEFM2004) September 26-30, Beijing, China (http://www.iist.unu.edu/SEFM2004/)
Aspect-oriented software development (AOSD) is a new technique to Support separation of concerns in software development. The techniques of AOSD make it possible to modularize crosscutting aspects of a system. Like objects in object-oriented software development, aspects in AOSD may arise at any stage of the software life cycle, including requirements specification, design, implementation, etc. Some examples of crosscutting aspects are exception handling, synchronization, and resource sharing.
The goal of this workshop is to create a fruitful discussion about the aspect-oriented software development. By bringing together different research communities that work in this field, we hope to achieve cross-fertilization and exchange of ideas.
All papers related to AOSD are welcome. Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:
Application of formal method to AOSD Aspect-oriented analysis and design Aspect-oriented software architectures and product lines Application and tool support for AOSD Aspect interference and composition Design and implementation of aspect-oriented languages Semantics and type systems Software development methods and patterns Reverse engineering and refactoring Contracts, components, and aspects Analysis techniques for aspect-oriented systems Verification and testing of aspect-oriented systems Metrics and evaluation for AOSD
Prospective participants are invited to submit papers (up to 12 pages) written in English in the format of Elsevier's ENTCS Proceedings (http://math.tulane.edu/~entcs/) before July 15 2004. Email addresses and fax numbers of the authors should be included on the title page. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Program committee will review all submitted papers according to the relevance and originality of the work and to their ability to generate discussion among the workshop participants. The authors of the papers will be notified on August 10 2004. Submitted papers should be in PDF or Postscript format and should be electronically submitted to: Jianjun Zhao (firstname.lastname@example.org)
To grant an easy dissemination of the proposed ideas and to favorite an ideas interchange among the participants, accepted papers will be made available in advance over the Web and all participants are encouraged to read the accepted papers in advance. A hardcopy of the workshop proceedings will be distributed to participants at the workshop. We are planning (approval pending) that the Final Proceedings will be published in the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science Series (ENTCS). In addition, it is also planned a special issue with extended and revised versions of the best papers on a journal.
Submission Deadline: July 15 2004 Notification Date: August 10 2004 Final Version: August 30 2004 Workshop Date: September 27, 2004
