CFP: BICT 2014 Special Track on Modularization for Practical Software Engineering (MPSE)

December 1 (Mon) - December 3, 2014 (Wed)
Boston, MA, USA

In-corporation with ACM SIGSIM

Modularity is central to develop maintainable, reusable, administrable, and comprehensible software. However, some modularity issues are still without addressing. In different levels, we can find proposals to deal with modularity issues. For example, aspect-oriented programming, mixin programming abstractions, design patterns, and code assist tools.

The goal of this special track on Modularization for Practical Software Engineering is to provide a forum for researchers and industry participators where they can exchange and discuss ideas about how to address modularity issues from a practical software engineering viewpoint.

This special track seeks high-quality original and unpublished papers in the following topics including (but not limited to these topics):

  • Bio-inspired modularity
  • Novel and visionary paradigms useful to reach modularity
  • Programming language abstractions to help in the modular implementation of applications
  • Design patterns for non-traditional paradigms
  • Experience of use of Domain-specific Language in practical applications
  • Experience in design, implementation, and refactoring of applications
