This symposium is intended to provide a forum to discuss mature research results as well as work in progress and industrial experience. We encourage submissions to adopt a format that fosters interaction and discussion in the following topics (but not limited to):
  • Programming language abstractions for software variability (e.g. macros, traits, prototype-based extensions)
  • Configuration languages (eg. feature description interpreters, transformational approaches)
  • Interaction between non-functional programming concerns and software variability (e.g. security, persistence, concurrency, distribution)
  • Modularization approaches for software variability (e.g. aspect-orientation, modules, layers, plugins).
  • Guidelines to include software variability in programs (e.g. best-practices, patterns)
  • Runtime support for software variability (e.g. reflection, dynamic binding)
  • Generative programming for software variability (e.g. GUI generation)
  • Tool support
