Workshop #10 - Second International Workshop on Composition Languages (WCL 2002)

Monday WS02   WS04   WS06 WS07 WS08 WS12 WS18 WS19 WS20

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of component-based software development in order to address problems concerning the design and implementation of composition languages and to develop a common understanding of the corresponding concepts. We would also like to determine the strengths and weaknesses of composition languages and compare it with similar approaches in related fields. In this workshop, we intend to continue the fruitful discussions started at the first workshop on composition languages (WCL 2001), which was held in conjunction with ESEC/FSE 2001.

The main focus of the workshop will be on language issues for composing components into applications, and not on component-based systems in general. In particular, we would like to emphasize the important issues of (i) the design and
implementation of higher-level languages for component-based software development, (ii) approaches that combine architectural description, component configuration, and component composition, (iii) paradigms for the specification of reusable software assets, (iv) expressing applications as compositions of software components, and (v) the derivation of working systems using composition languages and components. Furthermore, we would particularly like to encourage authors to submit position statements focusing on formal aspects of the issues mentioned above and case studies of using composition languages for real-world applications.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the workshop paper selection committee. Based on the quality and originality, a selection of the best position statements will be presented at the workshop. The workshop will be
organized in several sessions, each dedicated to a particular subject of common interest. Instead of splitting the workshop into task forces, we intend to provoke lively discussion by preparing lists of critical questions and topics, which will be
published and distributed to the participants before the workshop.

The main expected results of the workshop would be an outline of collaborative research topics and a list of areas for further exploration. Additionally, the results collected during the workshop will be presented to the rest of the ECOOP community in the form of a poster at the same conference.
