Event description:

Ninth International Workshop on Variability Modelling of
Software-intensive Systems (VaMoS)

Hildesheim, Germany, January 21 -- 23, 2015

Paper submission deadline: November 10, 2014
Notification of acceptance: December 08, 2014

Featuring keynotes by:

Jean-Marc Jézéquel, University of Rennes 1, FR
Stefan Kuntz, Continental Automotive GmbH, DE


== Description ==

Managing variability is a major issue in the development, maintenance, and
evolution of software-intensive systems. To be managed effectively and
efficiently, variability must be explicitly modelled. As in VaMoS~'14,
the upcoming workshop goes beyond its predecessors by addressing variability
more widely, including variability in requirements, architecture, implementation,
validation, and verification as well as evolution of variability -- just to
name the most important of the related issues.

The aim of the VaMoS workshop series is to bring together researchers from
various areas dedicated to mastering variability to discuss advantages,
drawbacks, and complementarities of various approaches, and to present new
results for mastering variability throughout the whole life cycle of systems,
system families, and product lines.

The workshop will feature invited keynotes by Jean-Marc Jézéquel and Stefan Kuntz
as well as peer-reviewed paper presentations.

== Important Dates ==

Paper submission deadline: November 10, 2014
Notification of acceptance: December 08, 2014
Camera-ready version deadline: December 19, 2014
Early registration deadline: January 5, 2015
Workshop in Hildesheim: January 21 -- 23, 2015

== Workshop Format ==

VaMoS '15, like the previous VaMoS workshops, will be a highly
interactive event. Each session will be organized such that discussions among
presenters of papers, discussants and other participants are stimulated.
Typically, after a paper is presented, it is immediately discussed by
pre-assigned discussants, after which a free discussion involving all
participants follows. Each session is closed by a general discussion of all
papers presented in the session.

The workshop language is English. Attendance is open to authors of accepted
papers, invited speakers, organizers, PC members, and to guest visitors who
commit to become assigned as discussants of papers.

== Topics (non-exclusive) ==

- Variability across the software life cycle
- Separation of concerns and modularity
- Variability evolution
- Variability mining
- Reverse engineering for variability
- Feature, aspect, and service orientation
- Software configuration management
- Architecture and design approaches for variability
- Software economic aspects of variability
- Visualization and management of variability
- Adaptivity at runtime and development time
- Formal reasoning and automated analysis of variability
- Programming languages and tool support
- Case studies and empirical studies

== Submissions ==

We look forward to receiving the following types of submissions:

- Research papers describing novel contributions to the field of variability.

- Problem statements describing open issues of theoretical or practical nature.

- Reports on positive or negative experiences with techniques and tools related
to VaMoS.

- Surveys and comparative studies that investigate pros, cons and
complementarities of existing VaMoS-related approaches.

- Research-in-progress reports including research results at a premature stage.

- Vision papers stating where the research in the field should be heading

- Tool demonstrations describing the variability-related features of CASE tools.

The length of the submitted papers should be between 4 and 8 pages in ACM
proceedings format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).
Details on how to submit will be available on the VaMoS web site:

== Publication ==

The proceedings of the workshop will be published in ACM's International
Conference Proceedings Series, which includes a publication in the ACM digital library.
Previous editions of VaMoS have been indexed in the DBLP repository

== Venue ==

VaMoS will be hosted by Software Systems Engineering Group at the University of Hildesheim, Germany.
