13th Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2009)

Product line engineering aims at optimal processes and practices in organizations to produce and maintain their products. It is massively based on reuse of artifacts that have been defined strategically and built for reuse proactively. The success of product line approaches is thus depending on the overall organizational contexts and goals in addition to the implementation of adequate product line practices or technologies. This strong interrelationship between organizational concerns and engineering practices makes working and researching in the field of product line engineering as interesting as challenging.

Reports on concrete implementations, as well as methodological frameworks, are often very simliar to a certain level of abstraction but quite different in their details. After seeing a dozen product line conferences pass, it is time for the product line community to collect and understand similarities and differences of practical implementations and research results more systematically and explicitily.

The 13th Software Product Line Conference in 2009 thus seeks for contributions from diverse perspectives along two dimensions ...

... from practice to research,

  • Practice perspectives capture the identified needs or the selected solutions relative to a unique organizational context and its associated constraints
  • Research perspectives drive product line technologies forward by improving its processes, the underlying technologies, or provided tool


.., from retrospective to vision.

  • Retrospectives summarizes existing work or experiences and derive lessons learned for product line researchers or practitioners
  • Visions motivate and outline work to be done in the field of product

line engineering ranging from postulating new ways for engineering product lines to pointing out open hypotheses that must be validated by the product line community

Within those perspectives we expect the following questions to be of particular interest to the product line community:

  • How to manage "Safety" (or any other quality attribute) in a product

line context systematically ?

  • How to engineer product lines in a complex organizatinal network of OEMs and suppliers including COTS or open source components?
  • How to center a product line approach around a given reference architecture in a certain domain (e.g. AUTOSAR for the automotive industry)
  • How to combine agile approaches with product line engineering?
  • How to combine service orientation with product line engineering?

We ask you to present your perspective to the product line community and discuss it at SPLC 20009, the premium forum for product line researchers and practitioners. Please submit your contributions as research or experience papers, tutorials, workshop proposals, demonstrations, or poster presentations. Additionally, we strongly encourage young researchers to participate in the Doctoral Symposium. Please visit the conference website for all details on deadlines, formats, etc. (see www.splc.net)
