              3rd International Workshop on Traceability in 
              Emerging Forms of Software Engineering (TEFSE)

                       In Conjunction with the 
                20th IEEE/ACM International Conference on 
                   Automated Software Engineering (ASE)

Traceability between the free text documentation associated with the 
development and maintenance cycle of a software system and its source 
code are crucial in a number of tasks such as program comprehension, 
software maintenance, and software verification & validation.  
Maintaining traceability links between subsequent releases of a software 
system is important for evaluating relative source code deltas, 
highlighting effort/code variation inconsistencies, and assessing the 
change history.

This workshop is intended to be a working event focused on understanding 
and defining the foundations for consistency and change management of 
software systems within the scope of artifact-to-artifact (model-to-model) 
traceability.  The workshop will explore topics related to:
   - A formal definition of model to model traceability. 
   - Traceability between artifacts and processes.
   - The semantics of traceability links.
   - Recovery of traceability links 
   - Visualization of traceability links  
   - Interoperable approaches to support traceability  
   - Traceability in emerging forms of software engineering including 
     production lines, frameworks, components, etc.  

Specific workshop goals include:
   - Broadening awareness within the software engineering community 
     of the potential for the application of traceability 
   - Facilitating the exchange of ideas and interaction between 
     international researchers
   - Defining open and key research problems faced in realizing usable 
     tools/approach for traceability 
   - Constructing a foundation of materials for future research on

Authors are welcome to contact the organizers to discuss the 
suitability of potential topics.


Position papers are solicited in any areas related to the themes and goals of 
the workshop, and are intended to inform on the authors' views and perspectives 
on traceability. During the workshop authors of accepted papers will be asked 
to present a short summary of their ideas, identify up to three main points, 
and pose a fundamental question or issue.

Papers should follow ACM formatting guidelines and should be no more 
than 6 pages in length. Position papers or papers describing preliminary 
results are encouraged.  All papers should be submitted electronically in 
pdf format.  See the web page for submission instructions.
