   GTTSE 2009, 06-11 July, 2009, Braga, Portugal
   3rd International Summer School on
   Generative and Transformational Techniques in Software Engineering



The biannual, week-long GTTSE summer school brings together PhD
students, lecturers, as well as researchers and practitioners who are
interested in the generation and the transformation of programs, data,
software models, data models, metamodels, documentation, and entire
software systems. The GTTSE school draws from several areas of the
broad software engineering and programming language communities, in
particular: software reverse and re-engineering, model-driven software
development, program calculation, generic language technology,
generative programming, aspect-oriented programming, and compiler
construction. The GTTSE school presents the state of the art in
automated software engineering and software language engineering:
foundations, methods, tools, and case studies.

The school's scientific program consists of three modules: 8 full
tutorials (see below for a list of speakers and topics), 8 short
tutorials (see the website for this part; under construction), and a
half day-long participants' workshop. Each of the (8) full tutorials
takes 3 hours of plenary time of GTTSE's week-long schedule. These
tutorials are given by "veterans" of the field. Each of the (8)
short(er) tutorials takes 20 mins of plenary time and approximately 90
mins of "parallel" time (with typically 2 sessions in parallel). These
tutorials are (also) by invitation only. Most if not all tutorials
will be complemented by articles in the proceedings of the school.

The participants' workshop features presentations that were selected
among the proposals submitted by the participants (who are typically
PhD students). The idea is here to provide committed junior
researchers with a slot to present their relevant research and to
receive highly qualified feedback from the senior researchers at the
school. This time, GTTSE features an award, sponsored by SIG (The
Software Improvement Group), to be given to the best presenter at the
participants' workshop. After the school, all participants of the
school can submit an article for peer review to the
post-proceedings. In the past, about 25% of these submissions were
selected by the scientific committee to be included in the

All material presented at the school will be collected in informal
proceedings to be handed out solely to the participants. Formal and
public post-proceedings will be compiled after the summer school where
all contributions are subjected to reviewing. Subject to Springer's
approval, the post-proceedings of the school will be published in a
volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of
Springer-Verlag. The post-proceedings of the previous two instances of
the summer school (2005 and 2007) were published as LNCS volumes 4143
and 5235.
