                                                                    Call for Papers

                                            Eighth International Conference on
  Generative Programming and Component Engineering (GPCE 2009)

                                                              October 4-5, 2009
                                                                Denver, Colorado
                              (co-located with MODELS 2009 and SLE 2009)


Important Dates

* Submission of abstracts: May 11, 2009
* Submission: May 18, 2009
* Notification: June 30, 2009

Workshops and tutorials (submission via MODELS 2009)
* Workshop Proposals: March 15, 2009
* Tutorial Proposals: April 19, 2009


Generative and component approaches are revolutionizing software
development similar to how automation and components revolutionized
manufacturing. Generative Programming (developing programs that
synthesize other programs), Component Engineering (raising the level
of modularization and analysis in application design), and
Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) (elevating program specifications to
compact domain-specific notations that are easier to write, maintain,
and analyze) are key technologies for automating program development.

The International Conference on Generative Programming and Component
Engineering provides a venue for researchers and practitioners
interested in techniques for enhancing the productivity, quality, and
time-to-market in software development that stems from deploying
components and automating program generation. In addition to exploring
cutting-edge techniques for developing generative and component-based
software, our goal is to foster further cross-fertilization between
the software engineering research community and the programming
languages community.


Research papers:

10 pages in SIGPLAN proceedings style (sigplanconf.cls) reporting
original research results that contribute to scientific knowledge in
the areas listed below (the PC chair can advise on appropriateness).

Tool demonstrations:

Tool demonstrations should present available tools that implement novel
generative and component-based software engineering techniques. Any of the
GPCE'09 topics of interest are appropriate areas for research demonstrations
but purely commercial tool demonstrations will not be accepted. Submissions
should contain a tool description of 4 pages in SIGPLAN proceedings style
(sigplanconf.cls) that will be published in the proceedings, and a
demonstration outline of up to 2 pages text plus 2 pages screen shots that
will be used by the PC to evaluate the submission.

Tutorials and Workshops:

Tutorials and workshops of interest to the GPCE audience can be
submitted to MODELS 2009. Please contact the corresponding MODELS
chairs for submission details. Accepted MODELS tutorials and workshops
that are primarily aimed at the GPCE audience will preferably be
scheduled for Tuesday, October 6, 2009.

MODELS 2009 Tutorial Chair:
* Thomas Weigert (Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA)

MODELS 2009 Workshop Chair:
* James Bieman (Colorado State University, USA)


GPCE seeks contributions in software engineering and in programming
languages related (but not limited) to:

* Generative programming
  o Reuse, meta-programming, partial evaluation, multi-stage and
      multi-level languages, step-wise refinement, generic programming
  o Semantics, type systems, symbolic computation, linking and
      explicit substitution, in-lining and macros, templates,
      program transformation
  o Runtime code generation, compilation, active libraries,
      synthesis from specifications, development methods,
      generation of non-code artifacts, formal methods, reflection
* Generative techniques for
  o Product-line architectures
  o Distributed, real-time and embedded systems
  o Model-driven development and architecture
  o Resource bounded/safety critical systems.
* Component-based software engineering
  o Reuse, distributed platforms and middleware, distributed
      systems, evolution, patterns, development methods,
      deployment and configuration techniques, formal methods
* Integration of generative and component-based approaches
* Domain engineering and domain analysis
  o Domain-specific languages including visual and UML-based DSLs
* Separation of concerns
  o Aspect-oriented and feature-oriented programming,
  o Intentional programming and multi-dimensional separation of
* Industrial applications of the above

Submissions must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy. Please
contact the program chair if you have any questions about how this
policy applies to your paper (
