The AOSD.05 conference invites high-quality papers reporting research results and/or experience related to aspect-orientation. Research papers should describe work that advances the current state of the art and/or practice. Both traditional research papers and papers describing the development and deployment of novel industrial tools and technologies are encouraged. Experience papers should be of broad interest and should describe insights gained from practical application of aspect-oriented technologies. The program committee will evaluate each paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity and originality. Specific topics of interest for the conference include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications and tools
  • Software architectures and product lines
  • Aspect interference and composition
  • Contracts, components and aspects
  • Model Driven Architecture and UML
  • General-purpose and domain-specific aspect languages
  • Software development methods and patterns
  • Reverse engineering and refactoring
  • Reflection and meta programming
  • Semantics and type systems
  • Verification, validation and testing
  • Distributed systems and middleware
