The primary goal of the 4th International Workshop on Feature-Oriented Software Development (FOSD) is to foster and strengthen the collaboration between the researchers who work in the field of FOSD or in the related fields of software product lines, service-oriented architecture, model-driven engineering and feature interactions. The focus of FOSD’12 will be on discussions, rather than on presenting technical content only.
This year we will have two keynotes at the FOSD workshop: Mira Mezini, Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany Salvador Trujillo, IKERLAN Research Centre, Spain
The workshop is scheduled for two full days and will be a highly interactive event. The workshop begins with a keynote. Then, the accepted papers are presented in sessions. We allocate for each accepted paper 20 min for presentation and 20 min for discussion. To stimulate discussions, we assign to each paper a “devil’s advocate”, who is supposed to read the paper before the workshop, to prepare a set of controversial questions (typically, one to three questions), and to step into the discussion when appropriate. Additionally, we will allocate slots for discussion sessions to address issues raised during the paper presentations or other pressing issues.
We invite submissions 4 to 8 pages long in ACM proceedings format. The papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The authors will be notified about acceptance before the early registration deadline. Accepted papers will be posted on the website and published in the ACM Digital Library. In particular, we are looking for contributions in the following topics: • Programming language and tool support for FOSD • Mapping between problem and solution space • Formal methods and theory for FOSD • Variability-aware analysis (e.g., type checking, testing, data flow analysis, and verification) • Feature composition and refactoring • Detection of feature interactions • Versioning, evolution, and maintenance • Generative programming and automatic programming • Components, services, aspects, and models
