SCOPE AND FORMAT
The biannual, week-long GTTSE summer school brings together PhD students, lecturers, as well as researchers and practitioners who are interested in the generation and the transformation of programs, data, software models, data models, metamodels, documentation, and entire software systems. The GTTSE school draws from several areas of the broad software engineering and programming language communities, in particular: software reverse and re-engineering, model-driven software development, program calculation, generic language technology, generative programming, aspect-oriented programming, and compiler construction. The GTTSE school presents the state of the art in automated software engineering and software language engineering: foundations, methods, tools, and case studies.
The school's scientific program consists of three modules: 8 long tutorials, 6 short tutorials, and a half day-long participants' workshop. Each of the (8) long tutorials takes 3 hours of plenary time of GTTSE's week-long schedule. These tutorials are given by "veterans" of the field. Each of the (6) short(er) tutorials takes 15 mins of plenary time and approximately 90 mins of "parallel" time (with typically 2 sessions in parallel). These tutorials are (also) by invitation only. Most if not all tutorials will be complemented by articles in the proceedings of the school.
The participants' workshop features presentations that were selected among the proposals submitted by the participants (who are typically PhD students). The idea is here to provide committed junior researchers with a slot to present their relevant research and to receive highly qualified feedback from the senior researchers at the school. This time, GTTSE features an award, sponsored by SIG (The Software Improvement Group), to be given to the best presenter at the participants' workshop. After the school, all participants of the school can submit an article for peer review to the post-proceedings. In the past, about 25% of these submissions were selected by the scientific committee to be included in the post-proceedings.
All material presented at the school will be collected in informal proceedings to be handed out solely to the participants. Formal and public post-proceedings will be compiled after the summer school where all contributions are subjected to reviewing. The post-proceedings of the school will be published in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of Springer-Verlag. The post-proceedings of the previous two instances of the summer school (2005 and 2007) were published as LNCS volumes 4143 and 5235.
