Workshop Theme

The workshop is concerned with approaches to address, measure, and control volatility and complexity in complex software systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • The definition and evaluation of metrics for assessment of the volatility of a software system
  • Metrics based on complex systems analysis methods (e.g. network metrics)
  • Identification of the most change-prone artefacts of a system
  • Architectural approaches for containing the spread of changes through the system
  • Probabilistic reasoning about quality and functionality of software systems using software complexity and volatility metrics
  • Evolution of volatility and complexity of large-scale software systems
  • Dynamic visualisation of the behaviour and evolution of software systems
  • Visualisation supported reasoning about complex software systems

The Call for Papers for the workshop is available as a pdf document .
