GTTSE 2011, 3–9 July, 2011, Braga, Portugal

4th International Summer School on Generative and Transformational
Techniques in Software Engineering



    8 Long Tutorials
    8 Short Tutorials
    Participants Workshop


    May 27 (early registration)
    June 17 (late registration)


The summer school brings together PhD students, lecturers, technology
presenters, as well as other researchers and practitioners who are
interested in the generation and the transformation of programs, data,
software models, data models, meta-models, documentation, and entire
software systems. This concerns many areas of software engineering:
software reverse and re-engineering, model-driven approaches,
automated software engineering, generic language technology,
aspect-oriented programming, feature-oriented development, compiler
construction, to name a few. These areas differ with regard to the
specific sorts of meta-models (or grammars, schemas, formats etc.)
that underlie the involved artifacts, and with regard to the specific
techniques that are employed for the generation and the transformation
of the artifacts. The tutorials are given by renowned representatives
of complementary approaches and problem domains. Each tutorial
combines foundations, methods, examples, and tool support. The program
of the summer school also features invited technology presentations,
which present setups for generative and transformational techniques.
These presentations complement each other in terms of the chosen
application domains, case studies, and the underlying concepts. The
program of the school also features a participants workshop. All
summer school material will be collected in proceedings that are
handed out to the participants. Formal proceedings will be compiled
after the summer school, where all contributions are subjected to
additional reviewing.

The formal proceedings of the previous three instances of the summer
school (2005, 2007 and 2009) were published as volumes 4143, 5235 and
6491 in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of
