Accepted workshops for SPLC 2023

Hybrid Industry Challenges Workshop

Organisers: Martin Becker, Mitsuhiro Kitani, Rick Rabiser

Abstract: SPLC is the premier forum where researchers, practitioners, and educators can present and discuss the most recent ideas, trends, experiences, and challenges in the area of software and system product lines engineering, i.e., highly variable/configurable systems. Conference events include opportunities to hear industry leaders’ real-world experiences and researchers’ latest ideas and to learn from both. Please refer to the SPLC Hall of Fame to read about success stories with SPLs by companies such as Boeing, Bosch, Hewlett Packard, Philips, Siemens, Toshiba: 


VariVolution: 6th International Workshop on Variability and Evolution of Software-intensive Systems

Organisers: Sandra Greiner, Kristof Meixner, Xhevahire Tërnava and Sebastian Krieter

Abstract: Just like software in general, software product lines are permanently subject to change. This introduces evolution as a second problem dimension in addition to variability, which is the primary phenomenon addressed by software product line engineering. Traditionally, the methods and tools applied for revision control and variant management are radically different and mutually disjoint, although research has already suggested that evolution and variability can be tackled in a holistic way. Concrete examples of integrating approaches include uniform or unified versioning, delta-orientation in connection with hyper feature models, evolution-aware clone-and-own, projectional SPL editing, and variation control systems.

VariVolution (the 6th International Workshop on Variability and Evolution of Software-Intensive Systems) aims at bringing together active researchers studying software evolution and variability from different angles as well as practitioners who encounter these phenomena in real-world applications and systems. The workshop offers this year a hybrid platform for exchanging new ideas and fostering future research collaborations and synergies.
