GPCE WS2: Software Transformation Systems Workshop (STS)

GPCE WS2: Software Transformation Systems Workshop (STS)

Sunday, Oct 22, 08:30 to 17:00, E145


Generative software techniques typically transform components or codefragments, instantiate patterns etc. in some way or another to generate new code fragments, components or programs. Often this needs software support beyond that of existing compilers, i.e., some kind of system which takes software as inputs and produces software as output.

Software transformation systems are tools which are built for such transformations. They range from specific tools for one purpose, via simple pattern matching systems, to general transformation systems which are easily programmed to do any reasonable transformation. Thus the more general tools may be treated as meta-tools for generative programming.

Following on the success of STS'04, this workshop is once again designed to bring together people working on software transformation systems and those with an interest in software transformation systems as a generative tool, with the aim of investigating the use of software transformation tools as tools to support generative programming. We want to look at various generative techniques and suggest how these may be supported by various general purpose transformation tools. This may lead to a more general understanding of common principles for supporting generative methods.

This year's workshop will particularly focus on architecture, reuse, implementation (data representations and algorithms), application models and benchmarks, although contributions on a wide range of topics in the application of software transformation systems in generative techniques are sought.
