8TH ECOOP WORKSHOP ON QUANTITATIVES APPROACHES IN OBJECT-ORIENTED SOFTWAREENGINEERING
June, 2004. Oslo, Norway

The proposed workshop is a direct continuation ofseven successful workshops, held at previous editions of ECOOP in Darmstadt (2003), Malaga (2002), Budapest (2001), Cannes (2000), Lisbon (1999), Brussels (1998) and Aarhus (1995). The QAOOSE series of workshops has attractedparticipants from both academia and industry that are involved / interested inthe application of quantitative methods in object oriented software engineeringresearch and practice. Quantitative approaches in the OO field is a broad butactive research area that aims at the development and/or evaluation of methods,techniques, tools and practical guidelines to improve the quality of softwareproducts and the efficiency and effectiveness of software processes.

 

However, as a result of the previous edition and inorder to open the workshop participation to a broader audience, the 2004edition extends the scope of the workshop to quantitative approaches to otherthan object-oriented modeling, specification and programming methodologies and technologies.In particular component-based systems (CBS), web-based systems (WBS) andagent-based systems (ABS) will also fit into this new edition. Although widerin scope, the workshop will keep its original name for continuity sake.

 

The relevant research topics are diverse, but includea strong focus on applying empirical software engineering techniques.

 

LIST OF TOPICS:

Like in previous years, submissions of positionpapers are invited, but not limited, to the areas of metrics collection,quality assessment, metrics validation, and process management.

 

Area C (Metrics Collection)

  • · Automatic support for sharing research hypotheses, data and results
  • · Standards for the collection, comparison and validation of metrics
  • · Embedding metrics in CASE and application development tools
  • · Evaluation of metrics collection tools
  • · Automating collection from formal metrics definition
  • · Metrics collection in the development process (measurement planning)
  • · Public repositories for measurement data
  • · Metrics visualization (*)
  • · Metrics for component-based systems (*)
  • · Metrics for web-based systems (*)

 

Area A (Quality Assessment)

  • · Measuring non-functional requirements of OO systems
  • · Quantitative OO and CB design heuristics
  • · Metric-based design refactoring
  • · OOD and CBD quality characteristics assessment
  • · Quantitative impact analysis in OO and CB architectures
  • · Quantitative assessment of OO analysis/design patterns and frameworks
  • · Quantitative assessment of behavioral modeling in OO models
  • · Quantitative assessment of OR and OO database/datawarehouse schemata
  • · Measurement and quality assessment of components (*)
  • · Measurement and quality assessment of agent-based systems(*)
  • · Agent-based Web service architecture as a means of providing QoS(*)
  • · Quality of Service models(*)
  • · Instrumentation of Web services for QoS (*)

 

Area V (Metrics Validation)

  • · Meta-level metrics
  • · Formal and empirical validation of metrics
  • · Metrics and Measurement Theory
  • · Validation techniques and their limits
  • · Standard data sets for metrics validation
  • · Limitations of quality estimation techniques

 

Area P (Process Management)

  • · Reliability and rework effort estimates based on design measures
  • · Reuse evaluation
  • · Resource estimation models for OO and CB software development
  • · Quantitative tracking of OO, web services, and CBS development activities
  • · Empirical studies on the use of measures for process management
  • · Measurement support in a CBD life cycle

 

We explicitly solicit position papers related totopics marked with an asterisk (*) as well as papers that document and/ormotivate the use of quantitative methods in industrial software processes. Thesetopics were identified as important open research issues in QAOOSE’2003workshop.

During the workshop there will be some sessions forpresenting position papers and a plenary ‘working’ session for summarizing,evaluating and assembling the research results and for identifying futureresearch opportunities. All submitted position papers will be formally reviewedby the workshop organizers for originality, relevance, quality and clarity. Wespecially encourage the submission of new ideas, even if not fully validatedyet.

The workshop organizers will select a subgroup of theaccepted submissions for oral presentation. However, all accepted positionpaper submissions will be included in the workshop proceedings to bedistributed to the participants. All invited participants will be asked tosummarize the contributions and limitations of the work they will present.

Springer-Verlag has been publishing yearly the ECOOPWorkshop Reader as a LNCS volume. We expect the 2004 edition of this book toinclude a report from the QAOOSE’2004. This report is edited by the QAOOSEorganizers and will provide a summary of the workshop, including the majorissues discussed and the conclusions drawn collectively.

 

 

IMPORTANT DATES:

 

– Submission of position papers due: April 5, 2004

– Notification of acceptance: April 26, 2004

– Preliminary Program available: May 3, 2004

– Deadline for early registration: May 7, 2004
