June 7 - June 9, 2017, Madrid, Spain
14th April, 2017 - Submission deadline
4th May, 2017 - Notification of acceptance
9th May, 2017 - Registration deadline
6th June, 2017 - SENECA European project training for PhDs
7th - 9th June, 2017 - SATToSE Seminar
SATToSE is the Seminar Series on Advanced Techniques & Tools for Software Evolution. The goal of SATToSE is to gather both undergraduate and graduate students to showcase their research, exchange ideas, and improve their communication skills.
SATToSE will host invited talks, paper presentations, tutorials, and a hackathon, fostering interactions among participants and stimulating lively debates and discussions around the topics of interest of the event. We expect attendees to be active participants and not just passive listeners. Presenters should be open to and encourage questions and discussions during their talks.
This year's SATToSE has a co-located event on the day before: the SENECA European (http://senecaproject.github.io) project training for PhDs. It is a one-day seminar on "writing up & moving on" and "commercializing research", that will have five renowned speakers. Those who register for SATToSE will have the possibility to attend this event for free.
### Topics of Interest
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
### Types of Submission
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 Summaries: Overview of research results already published or ready to be submitted to a conference or a journal.
* Technology Showdown Demonstrations: Technical explanation of important features of your framework, library or tool.
Contributions are managed through EasyChair. Please submit your paper using the following link:
### Presentation and Publication
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.
