The program is online: teaching and variability with industry, cognitive psychologists, arcade games, and model-driven techniques!
The workshop will be 16 september (half-day, in the morning).
Education has a key role to play for disseminating the constantly growing body of Software Product Line (SPL) knowledge. Teaching SPLs is challenging and it is unclear how SPLs can be taught, what are the possible gaps and difficulties faced, what are the benefits, or what is the material available. This workshop aims to explore and explain the current status and ongoing work on teaching SPLs at universities, colleges, and in industry (e.g., by consultants). Participants will discuss gaps and difficulties faced when teaching SPLs, benefits to research and industry, different ways to teach SPL knowledge, common threads, interests, and problems. The overall goal is to strengthen the important aspect of teaching in the SPL community.
A recent survey on teaching of SPLs provides some insights, but much more things remain to be done.
The workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners to discuss their experiences in SPL teaching. We also aim to learn from other communities, i.e., we want to attract submissions that discuss teaching experiences in general and their applicability to the SPL field.
We particularly encourage experience papers, which identify and structure open challenges and research questions. We also aim to attract short papers (2 pages) summarizing authors’ SPL teaching experiences they want to share with others. We are interested in all topics related to teaching in the context of SPLs. Topics include, but are not limited to:
We are seeking for research papers, experience reports (2 – 8 pages) as well as position and vision papers (4 pages max) in ACM SIG Alternative Proceedings Style. Submissions will be selected based on the relevance to the workshop topics and the suitability to trigger discussions.
Papers should be submitted as PDF files via EasyChair
The selected papers will be included in volume 2 of the SPLC conference proceedings published by ACM.
