      Call for Papers
      ===============

      2nd International Workshop on Context-oriented Programming (COP'10)
      at ECOOP 2010, Maribor, Slovenia, June 21 or 22, 2010

      http://soft.vub.ac.be/cop10/

      Important Dates
      ===============
      - Paper submission: April 19, 2010
      - Paper notification: May 5, 2010
      - Early registration: May 10, 2010

      Background
      ==========

      Context information plays an increasingly important role in our information
      centric world. Software systems must adapt to changing contexts over time,
      and must change even while they are running. Unfortunately, mainstream
      programming languages and development environments do not support this kind
      of dynamic change very well, leading developers to implement complex designs
      to anticipate various dimensions of variability.

      The goal of Context-oriented Programming (COP) is to directly support
      variability depending on a wide range of dynamic attributes, making it
      possible to dispatch runtime behavior on any properties of the execution
      context.

      Several researchers are working on Context-oriented Programming and related
      ideas, and implementations ranging from prototypes to mature platform
      extensions used in commercial deployments have illustrated how
      multi-dimensional dispatch can indeed be supported effectively to achieve
      expressive runtime variation in behavior.

      This is a follow-up event to the first successful COP'09 workshop, where 10
      highly interesting papers were presented and which attracted an audience of
      around 30 participants.

      Submission Guidelines
      =====================

      Potential attendants are expected to submit either a paper of 4-6 pages in
      ACM format, presenting scientific and/or empirical results about uses of
      Context-oriented Programming or new approaches for software engineering
      purposes, or a short essay of 2-3 pages in ACM format defending a position
      about where research on Context-oriented Programming should be heading in the
      near future. Submissions are required in electronic form. Please use the
      workshop website to submit your paper.

      Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

      - Interesting application domains and scenarios
      - Programming language abstractions for Context-oriented Programming
      (e.g., dynamic scoping, roles, traits, prototype-based extensions)
      - Configuration languages (e.g., feature descriptions)
      - Interaction with non-functional programming concerns
      (e.g., security, persistence, concurrency, distribution)
      - Modularization approaches for Context-oriented Programming
      (e.g., aspects, modules, layers, plugins)
      - Guidelines to include Context-oriented Programming in programs
      (e.g., best practices, design patterns)
      - Runtime support for Context-oriented Programming
      (e.g., reflection, dynamic binding)
      - Tool support (e.g. design tools, debuggers)
