Early Aspects


In conjunction with AOSD 2005
March 14-18,
Chicago, USA

Supported by:

European Network of Excellence on AOSD

Workshop Program

Central to the purpose of the program will be to work on an "early aspects landscape paper" that has been building up using knowledge gained from previous editions of the EA workshop. The current version of the landscape paper has been submitted to the participants before. Before and during the workshop we will solicit input and feedback on it, and grow it with input gathered at this workshop as well.

9:00 - 9:15 Welcome, introductions, go over agenda
9:15 - 10:30 Three Twenty-Minute Paper Presentations
  • Mining Aspects in Requirements
    Authors: Américo Sampaio, Neil Loughran, Awais Rashid and Paul Rayson
  • Supporting Aspect-Oriented Modeling with Graph Transformations
    Authors: Katharina Mehner, Gabriele Taentzer
  • Towards Modeling Non-Functional Requirements in Software Architecture
    Authors: Lihua Xu, Hadar Ziv, Debra Richardson, Zhixiong Liu
10:30-10:45 BREAK
10:45 - 12:00 Presentation of Early Aspects landscape paper, and group discussion
12:00 - 13:00 LUNCH
13:00 - 16:30 Form working groups to discuss specific areas of Early Aspects, and to work on improving/completing sections of the landscape
paper. Three groups are proposed:
(1) Early Aspects and domain analysis
(2) Early Aspects and requirements
(3) Early Aspects and architecture
...but the groups are subject to re-forming and re-definition given levels of interest present at the workshop. Each group will be asked to work on the corresponding section of the report, plus sections on summary, state of the practice, and pressing research areas.
16:30 - 17:30 Working groups report.
