Call for Industry Papers

Important Dates

Industry paper submission: Monday, November 6, 2006
Notification: Wednesday, December 6, 2006
Industry Track: March 14-16, 2007


The AOSD.07 conference invites high-quality papers reporting on the use of aspect-orientation in industrial settings. Industry papers provide an opportunity for industry leaders in applying AOP and AOSD to share their experiences with each other and the rest of the community.

Are you developing tools to support AOSD, or do you have experience applying aspect-oriented techniques to a commercial project, product, or open source solution? What problems did you tackle with AOSD, and what were the results? How did your colleagues who were unfamiliar with AOSD respond? What level of adoption has AOSD reached within your organisation or among your users and customers? What technical, organizational and business issues did you face? What are the main challenges facing industrial adoption of AOSD? What priorities do you believe the community should address?

Industry papers form an important part of the AOSD conference. They not only bring together leaders in industrial use of AOSD, they also inform researchers about the key problems facing current users. The Industry track at AOSD has been evolving as industrial use of aspects grows. See the Industry Track Proceedings from 2006 for examples of Industry Track papers.

Review Process

Industry papers should be submitted to The Industry Program Committee will evaluate the submissions,and may contact you as part of the review process. Therefore, your submission must name a primary contact including postal address, telephone and fax numbers, and email address.

Submitting a paper well in advance of the deadline will allow the committee to provide early feedback that can help improve the paper.

Authors of accepted papers will be asked to give a 30-minute presentation at the AOSD conference. The audience will include experts from both industry and academia. Accepted submissions will also be posted on

Submission Guidelines

Industry papers should be 3-10 pages in length, including an abstract not to exceed 300 words. The authors' names, affiliations and e-mail addresses must be clearly stated on the first page.

A references section should list all publications that have been referenced in the report, and references should be complete and consistent in style. References to resources only available via the Internet should mention a valid URL and site name or project name. It is not a requirement to follow the research paper submission guidelines, though you may do so if convenient. A single column layout is acceptable if this better suits your material.
