Workshop #15 - Knowledge-Based Object-Oriented Software Engineering (KOSE)

Monday WS02   WS04   WS06 WS07 WS08 WS12 WS18 WS19 WS20
Tuesday WS01 WS03 WS04 WS09 WS10 WS11 WS13 WS14 WS15 WS16 WS17



The complexity of software domains – such as the financial industry, television and radio broadcasting, hospital management and rental business – is steadily increasing and knowledge management of businesses is becoming more important with the demand for capturing business processes. On the other hand the volatility of software development expertise needs to be reduced. These are symptoms of a very significant tendency towards making knowledge of different kinds explicit: knowledge about the domain or the business, knowledge about developing software, and even meta-knowledge about these kinds of knowledge.

Examples of approaches that are directly related to this tendency or could contribute to it are knowledge engineering, ontologies, conceptual modeling, domain analysis and domain engineering, business rules, work ow management and research presented at conferences and journals on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering and Automated Software Engineering, formerly known as Knowledge-Based Software Engineering. Whereas this community already contributed for years to research in knowledge engineering applied to software engineering but also vice versa,
this workshop intends to focus on approaches for using explicit knowledge in various ways and in any of the tasks involved in object-oriented programming and software engineering. Another goal of this workshop is to bridge the gap between the aforementioned community and the ECOOP community.

On the one hand, this workshop is a platform for researchers interested in the symbiosis of knowledge-based or related methods and technologies with object-oriented programming or software development. On the other hand it welcomes practitioners confronted with the problems in developing knowledge-intensive software and their approach to tackling them.
