Motivation and Objectives 

Call for Papers (.txt)  

Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD) is an increasingly important paradigm in software development whereby novel notions of modularity and composition mechanisms are discussed with the goal of taming concerns that crosscut traditional abstraction boundaries.

The importance of AOSD in the software engineering community has become evident with the realization of several workshops, tutorials and six editions of the AOSD international conference. Over the last years, the software industry has also given more attention to AOSD techniques. Many available software products, such the JBoss application server and the Spring integration framework, have adopted the use of aspect-oriented techniques to address crosscutting concerns (persistence, security, dynamic adaptation) encountered in the development of server-side applications.

The Third Latin-American Workshop on Aspect-Oriented Software Development (LA-WASP 09) aims at bringing together the Latin-American research community interested in topics related to AOSD to share and discuss ideas, strengthen research group collaborations and identify new research opportunities.

The LA-WASP 09 workshop follows from the three successful editions of the Brazilian Workshop on AOSD (WASP'04, WASP'05 and WASP'06) and the two Latin American previous editions (LA-WASP'07 and LA-WASP'08) equally successful. Such events gathered researchers from all parts of Brazil, and from the LatinAOSD network (Latin-American Network on Aspect-Oriented Software Development), sponsored by the Brazilian National Council of Technological and Scientific Development (CNPq).

Workshop Format 

LA-WASP 09 is a two-day workshop and will be strongly focused on discussion. The workshop program includes international keynote speakers, technical paper presentations, poster exhibitions, structured group discussions, and a panel.

LA-WASP 09 will be held in conjunction with the XXIII Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering. The event is open to any interested participant and registration must be done at the following web site: SBES/SBBD 2009


The workshop proceedings will be published in the SBES'09 CD-ROM.
