Call for Participation

GTTSE 2011, 3–9 July, 2011, Braga, Portugal

4th International Summer School on Generative and Transformational Techniques in Software Engineering



  • May 27 (early registration)
  • June 17 (late registration)


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, software models, data models, meta-models, documentation, and entire software systems. This concerns many areas of software engineering: software reverse and re-engineering, model-driven approaches, automated software engineering, generic language technology, aspect-oriented programming, feature-oriented development, compiler construction, 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 three instances of the summer school (2005, 2007 and 2009) were published as volumes 4143, 5235 and 6491 in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of Springer-Verlag.



  • Re(verse)engineering
  • Language & IDE Development, Modularization and Composition with MPS


The co-location of SLE and GTTSE provides us the opportunity to combine their respective Doctoral Symposium and Participants' Workshop to form the GTTSE/SLE Students' Workshop. The students' workshop features presentations by the GTTSE and SLE participants: PhD students, PostDocs, practitioners, and other members of the computer science community. All registered participants are asked to submit an extended abstract in one of two forms: a 2 page extended research abstract or a 4 page doctoral research plan. Each presenter benefits by means of the feedback from the renowned tutorial speakers and other participants. Presentation at the workshop may also spark off new collaborations. The school and conference, as a whole, also benefits from the workshop because the presentations constitute a blend of the current research interests in the GTTSE and SLE communities.
