Summary: The Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering (CSMR) is the premier
European conference on the theory and practice of maintenance, reengineering and
evolution of software systems. CSMR promotes discussion and interaction among
researchers and practitioners about the development of maintainable software
intensive systems, and the evolution, migration and reengineering of these systems.
A total of 10 technical research paper sessions constitute the main conference, filled
with 29 full papers and 2 short papers. Furthermore, CSMR 2011 will feature two co
located workshops, five half day tutorials, an industry paper track, a tool
demonstration track, a doctoral symposium and a special track on European research
projects within the field of software evolution. What is new this year is the addition
of an industrial forum.
There will be two invited talks: Jens Borchers, ITManager at SCHUFA Holding AG,
will report on current activities in software evolution at his company (reengineering
by redevelopment), lessons forgotten, and new challenges in reengineering from an
industrial perspective. Hans Vangheluwe, University of Antwerp, will introduce
modeldriven aspects in softwaremaintenance and reengineering.
Industrial Forum: the industrial forum enables companies to present their
technologies (tools, methodologies, services) as well as success stories in software
maintenance and reengineering. The goal is to promote the work of reengineering
industry and to demonstrate its practical relevance to this field. The forum will
