Dagstuhl-Seminar 19191 - Software Evolution in Time and Space: Unifying Version and Variability Management
Sprache des Titels:
This Dagstuhl Seminar aimed at establishing a body of knowledge on unified version and variant management. We invited leading practitioners and researchers from both disciplines to discuss each other?s challenges, solutions, and experiences. The seminar?s goals were to: (i) survey state-of-the-art SCM and SPLE concepts and map both areas? terminologies and open problems, (ii) gather industrial and academic challenges and requirements on integrated version and variant management, (iii) survey and assess existing evaluation approaches, and (iv) stablish a research agenda, research infrastructure, and working groups. To guide future research, the participants also discussed the basis to work on improved evaluation approaches?as benchmarks for new version and variant management techniques. As such, the long-term goal of the seminar was to enable the development and evaluation of enhanced version and variant management techniques that will be adopted in practice.
