Here is just a quick update on the 2nd Summer School on Generative and Transformational Techniques in Software Engineering (GTTSE 2007), 2 - 7 July, 2007, Braga, Portugal. See my other plug for the school that I posted a while ago. In addition to the 8 tutorials (approx. 3 hours each), we have managed to arrange for another 8 shorter presentations, which are slightly more technology-focused and scheduled in a more relaxing format (approx. 2 hours each). I shouldn’t have any favorites, but I must say that I look forward the presentations on Google’s Web Toolkit and on IBM’s Safari framework for Eclipse.
So sit down: there will be 16 modules in the school!
We had 18 modules at GTTSE 2005, and we noticed that this was a “tiny bit” too much.
Below please find the full list of presentations complete with some name dropping for the scientific committee and the organizers. We plan for another LNCS volume, potentially in the tutorial subseries, and Springer has approved meanwhile. So this material may also find its way into some curriculums, I hope. Also I should note that we have not reached yet the limit of participants we can handle. So please be still encouraged to apply. For all details see the web site.
One thing that I find peculiar about the program is that I still have to meet one “person in the field” who knows all our 16 speakers by name. Normally, this means that you have speakers involved whose fame is still maturing. However, I assure you that we have worked very hard to put together a program with only exceptional speakers whose fame isn’t a secret anymore. The 16 speakers have made important contributions to the science and practice of generation, transformation, or language engineering. So what I conclude from that is “Generative and Transformational Techniques in Software Engineering” is a huge field and it is worth connecting everyone in this field and keeping people connected.
