Call for Participation

GTTSE 2009, 06-11 July, 2009, Braga, Portugal

3rd International Summer School on Generative and Transformational Techniques in Software Engineering


  • 8 Tutorials
  • Research 2.0 event
  • 6 Short Tutorials
  • Participants Workshop


  • June 7


The summer school brings together PhD students, lecturers, technology presenters, as well as other researchers and practitioners who are interested in the generation and the transformation of programs, data, models, meta-models, and documentation. This concerns many areas of software engineering: software reverse and re-engineering, model-driven approaches, automated software engineering, generic language technology, to name a few. These areas differ with regard to the specific sorts of meta-models (or grammars, schemas, formats etc.) that underlie the involved artifacts, and with regard to the specific techniques that are employed for the generation and the transformation of the artifacts. The tutorials are given by renowned representatives of complementary approaches and problem domains. Each tutorial combines foundations, methods, examples, and tool support. The program of the summer school also features invited technology presentations, which present setups for generative and transformational techniques. These presentations complement each other in terms of the chosen application domains, case studies, and the underlying concepts. The program of the school also features a participants workshop. All summer school material will be collected in proceedings that are handed out to the participants. Formal proceedings will be compiled after the summer school, where all contributions are subjected to additional reviewing.

The formal proceedings of the previous two instances of the summer school (2005 and 2007) were published as volumes 4143 and 5235 in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of Springer-Verlag.
