Call for Tutorial Proposals

Have you considered presenting a tutorial at SPLC 2018? Tutorials provide a valuable opportunity for conference participants to expand their product line knowledge and skills. Tutorials may focus on introductory product line topics, such as how to introduce a product line approach into an organization, or on advanced tools, approaches, methods, and best practices. We also welcome tutorials focusing on product line-related topics such as software ecosystems, domain-specific languages and model-driven engineering, self-adaptive systems, and systems of systems and cyber-physical systems. For those topics, however, make sure to clearly explain the relation to product lines. We particularly encourage tutorials that have a practical (tool) aspect to make the presentations more engaging. Tutorials will be held during the first two days of the conference week in full-day or half-day sessions. The…

SPLTea: Third International Workshop on Software Product Line Teaching

Education has a key role to play for disseminating the constantly growing body of Software Product Line (SPL) knowledge. Teaching SPLs is challenging and it is unclear how SPLs can be taught, what are the possible gaps and difficulties faced, what are the benefits, or what is the material available. The SPLTea workshop aims to explore and explain the current status and ongoing work on teaching SPLs at universities, colleges, and in industry (e.g., by consultants). Participants will discuss gaps and difficulties faced when teaching SPLs, benefits to research and industry, different ways to teach SPL knowledge, common threads, interests, and problems. The overall goal is to strengthen the important aspect of teaching in the SPL community. This year we are interested and only interested in extended abstract papers (2…
