7th ERCIM Workshop on Software Evolution

The 12th International Workshop on Principles on Software Evolution and the 7th ERCIM Workshop on Software Evolution will be held in Szeged, Hungary,5-6 September 2011.

This workshop is the merger of the annual ERCIM Workshop on Software Evolution (EVOL) and the International Workshop on Principles of Software Evolution (IWPSE). The rationale for a common event is to capitalize on the synergies to be found when theorists and practitioners meet.

Research in software evolution and evolvability has been thriving in the past years, with a constant stream of new formalisms, tools, techniques, and development methodologies trying, on the one hand, to facilitate the way long-lived successful software systems can be changed in order to cope with demands from users and the increasing complexity and volatility of the contexts in which such systems operate, and, on the other hand, to understand and if possible control the processes by which demand for these changes come about.

This workshop is co-organised by the ERCIM Working Group on Software Evolution
