CALL FOR PAPERS
International Workshop on Context-Oriented Programming (COP'09)
Co-located with the 23rd European Conference on Object-Oriented
Context information plays an increasingly important role in our
information centric world. Software systems must adapt to changing
contexts over time, and must change even while they are running.
Unfortunately, mainstream programming languages and development
environments do not support this kind of dynamic change very well,
leading developers to implement complex designs to anticipate various
dimensions of variability.
Context-oriented Programming (COP) directly supports variability
depending on a wide range of dynamic attributes, making it possible to
dispatch run-time behavior on any properties of the execution context.
By now, several researchers have started to work on Context-oriented
Programming and related ideas, and first implementations ranging from
first prototypes to mature platform extensions used in commercial
deployments have illustrated how multi-dimensional dispatch can indeed
be supported effectively to achieve expressive run-time variation in
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Interesting application domains and scenarios
* Programming language abstractions for context-oriented programming
(e.g. dynamic scoping, roles, traits, prototype-based extensions)
* Configuration languages (e.g. feature description interpreters,
* Interaction between non-functional programming concerns and context-
oriented programming (e.g. security, persistence, concurrency,
* Modularization approaches for context-oriented programming (e.g.
aspects, modules, layers, plugins).
* Guidelines to include context-oriented programming in programs (e.g.
* Runtime support for context-oriented programming (e.g. reflection,
* Tool support
Potential attendants are expected to submit either a paper of 4 (at
most 6) pages in ACM format, presenting scientific and/or empirical
results about uses of context-oriented programming or new approaches
for software engineering purposes or a short essay of 2 (at most 3
pages) defending a position about where research on context-oriented
programming should be heading in the near future. Submissions are
required in electronic form. Please use the link below to submit your
paper at the EasyChair conference system:
Submissions will be selected by our selection committee. Accepted
papers will be published in the ACM digital library.
