      International Workshop on Agile Product Line Engineering
      21 August 2006, Baltimore, Maryland (USA)
      Held at 10th Intl' Software Product Line Conference(SPLC'06)
      Submission Date: 9 June 2006
      Acceptance/rejection: 7 July 2006
      Camera-ready Copy: 21 July 2006
      Workshop: 21 August 2006
      The need to rapidly develop high quality, complex software continues to drive research in a number of (separate) areas in the software engineering community. For example, software product line development techniques have been of keen interest as means to re-use and tailor technical assets including models (requirements specifications, design), implementation, and test cases. A main focus in this area is to effectively create sets of related products by re-using and tailoring managed assets. Agile development techniques have also been proposed to rapidly develop software by focusing on developing working code; they seek to minimize the amount of documentation, process definition, and model development. It is interesting to note that although the goals of the two techniques have similarities (rapidly develop high quality, complex software), the solutions to realize the goals in the techniques seem to conflict. The theme of this workshop is to probe the following question: Given the similar goals but different foci of agile and product-line development techniques, to what degree can (or should) they be integrated?
      Potential topics include but are not limited to:
      * Issues in integrating agile and product-line techniques
      * Agile product-line processes (project management, configuration
      management, etc.)
      * Tools, techniques, and notations for
      - Agile requirements modeling for product-line development
      - Agile design (architecture, detailed) modeling for product-line
      - Code generation in agile product-line development
      - Agile testing for product-line development
      * Maintenance issues in agile product-line development
      Research papers and experience reports should be original work, limited to 8 proceedings pages in IEEE format.
      Acceptance criteria will be adequacy to the topics of the workshop, technical soundness and potential for generating discussion.
      Position papers may not exceed 4 pages in IEEE format. The aim of a position paper is to contribute a specific position to a research discussion. Position papers are judged on novelty, sensibility of the viewpoint, key insights, and relevant research results. Radical and unconventional ideas are welcomed.
      All paper submissions will be refereed by the PC. Authors are requested to present their accepted paper at the workshop.
      Extended versions of selected papers will be reviewed for publication in the Journal of Systems and Software (JSS, Elsevier).
