Important Dates

Demonstration proposal submission: November 20 , 2005
Notification of acceptance: November 28, 2005
Demonstrations Schedule: To be announced


Demonstrations are intended to share technical aspects of research-oriented tools and systems. For AOSD conference attendees they are an opportunity to learn about emerging technologies and to interact with the developers of those technologies. For a presenter they offer an excellent opportunity to share the technical aspects of their AOSD tool, system, or project. Demonstrations can range across commercial, academic, and corporate research systems. The demonstrations will be selected on the basis of technical merit, novelty, relevance to the AOSD community, and feasibility of presentation. The presentation should be focused on technical content and given by the technical members of the team. Product marketing is inappropriate in this forum: consider submitting an exhibition proposal instead. Every demonstration will be scheduled twice. A demonstration is allocated 45 minutes, with 35 minutes for a presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. There will also be projectors and space set aside where any conference attendee can give an informal demonstration. A sign-up sheet will be available for scheduling informal demonstrations during the conference. Topics of interest include (though are not limited to):

  • support for application of the aspect-oriented paradigm throughout the development lifecycle,
  • new technologies for aspect weaving/compilation, and
  • reverse engineering of aspects from existing software artifacts.
