Thanks for a great conference.
This year's Software Product Line Conference had 170 attendees from all over the world. We published a great record of the conference in the ACM Digital Library.
Organizations Need Software Product Lines
Now More Than Ever
Effectively using software product lines improves time to market, cost, productivity, and quality. They also enable rapid market entry and flexible response. And, using software product lines simplifies software maintenance and enhancement.
Product line approaches apply practices, processes, technology, and tools aimed at strategic, planned reuse – reuse of technical and business artifacts throughout the life cycle. The success of product line approaches depends on overall organizational goals in alignment with the implementation of appropriate product line practices and technologies. This strong interrelationship between organizational concerns and engineering practices makes working and researching the field of software product lines as interesting as it is challenging.
If your organization develops software, you need to explore the benefits software product lines deliver. If you already work with software product lines, you need to ensure that every potential advantage is reached and risk mitigated.
About SPLC 2009
The Software Product Line Conference (SPLC) is the premier forum for product line researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss current and emerging trends. SPLC provides the product line community with opportunities to hear industry leaders' real-world experiences and researchers’ latest ideas, and to learn from both. Now in its 13th year, SPLC 2009 was held held August 24 – 28 in San Francisco, California.
The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense and operated by Carnegie Mellon University.
This year’s program included keynotes by leaders in the field, experience reports from industry, presentations on current research, and product line workshops, tutorials, and tool demos. View the entire program here »
