The FOSD Meeting is a yearly informal meeting to bring together the community of researchers working on feature-oriented software development, including, but not limited:
- product lines
- software variability
- configuration management
- software architecture
The meeting started more than 10 years ago to bring several research groups with common interests closer together. The meeting has successfully been repeated 11 times with 20 to 50 participants each, and has established countless collaborations since. For example, see FOSD 2019 in Weimar and FOSD 2018 in Gothenburg.
The main objective is that researchers at different career stages (including undergraduate and early-career graduate students) come together to present their research, to get feedback from peers, to discuss new directions, and to initiate collaborations.
The format of an FOSD meeting consists of short presentations from each participant with plenty of time for discussion. Young researchers (graduate and undergraduate students), as well as more senior community members, present their research, provide and get feedback from others, engage into discussions and establish new collaborations. FOSD is a place for discussion, not a publication venue. Participants can present previously published work as well as unpublished work, including early ideas and work in progress. The key is to encourage discussions, to receive feedback and to grow the network of collaborating researchers.
The FOSD 2020 meeting will take place at the WU Campus in Vienna, Austria, from March 24 until March 27, 2020.
The abstract submission deadline is December 15, 2019.
Abstract submission is via Email to email@example.com.
The FOSD 2020 meeting does not require any paper submission and does not have proceedings, though we do expect an abstract about the research that is to be presented and an e-mail address of the participant. Due to space restrictions, we may have to select participants, but we are committed to maximize participation. We will send notifications shortly after the abstract deadline before Christmas. If you need more lead time for visa application or travel planning, reach out to us.
The meeting will take place at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna).
