IWPSE2002 Overview

The international workshop on software evolution, IWPSE2002, is organized for the discussion of both the theory and the experience of software evolution. It is a continuation of the previous four workshops: IWPSE '98, IWPSE '99, IWPSE 2000, and IWPSE 2001. Software evolution, recognized as an essential aspect of software systems, has become an emerging research subject in recent years and is attracting the attention of researchers and practitioners. The intent of IWPSE2002 is to provide a forum to discuss a wide range of topics in software evolution, to foster the better understanding of the nature of software evolution, and to accelerate research activities on the subject.
The major topics include, but not limited to:
Theory of software evolution, evolution of requirements and environments, architecture for evolution, evolution of architecture, software process for evolution, evolution of software process, methodology for evolutional design and development, validation and verification of evolution, metrics and evaluation of evolution, configuration and change management for evolution, environment for evolutional design, co-evolution of software and organization, experience and lessons learned from evolutional software systems, agile software development.
Paper submission:
We seek two types of contribution:
Full papers
A full paper cannot exceed ten pages and includes a title, a short abstract, and references. All papers are to be referred by the PC. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. At least one author must attend the workshop (this is a condition of publication) and approximately 30 minutes will be allocated for the presentation of the paper.
Position papers
Position papers are shorter than four pages in length and include a title, a short abstract, and references. The aim of a position paper is to contribute a specific position to a research discussion. Position papers are judged on novelty, sensibility of the viewpoint, key insights, and relevant research results. Radical and unconventional ideas are welcomed. An accepted position paper will be published in the workshop proceeding. Each position paper will be allocated 10-15 minutes for presentation.
