SATToSE 2018 - Call For Papers


SATToSE is the Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution. Its 11th edition takes 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.

Important Dates

Submission deadline: April 17, 2018
Notification of acceptance: May 9, 2018
Registration deadline: June 15, 2018
Camera-ready deadline June 15, 2018

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

Submission Guidelines

Contributions are managed through EasyChair. Please submit your paper using the following link:

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? Having 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)

To submit your contribution, you need to specify:

  • title of the presentation
  • list of author(s)
  • extended abstract of your presentation
  • desired category of your work as a subtitle (Work in Progress, Publication Summary, Tutorial, or Artifact Presentation)

Please adhere to this latex style, two column style (paper2p.tex and twocolpceurws.sty). This format is compatible with the the CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

All submissions will be reviewed and screened for scope and compatibility by the program committee, which will provide feedback for improving the abstract and preparing the talk. All contributions accepted for presentation will receive 10–30 minutes during the event for presentation and discussion. Submitters will also be offered the opportunity to receive feedback and guidance to improve their submission towards a formally published paper, in a SATToSE post-proceedings issue of an open access journal.

All the presented slides and pointers to related resources will be collected and will be made publicly available.
