WCRE 2001 Discussion Forum
Stuttgart, 2 October, 2001
Software architecture recovery aims at presenting existing software systems at the more abstract, architectural level. Architecture recovery research issues include many topics, such as system browsing, dealing with multiple perspectives, visualization, usability evaluations, reference architectures, interface description, remodularization, and so on.
The Software Architecture Recovery and Modelling (SWARM) discussion forum is intended for researchers in the area of architecture extraction to discuss their progress and explore future directions. The goals of the working session are
Presentations take 10 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of discussion. In order to stimulate informed debate, each position paper has a discussant assigned, who has the task to study the position paper in advance, and prepare one or two questions. Each session is concluded with 15 minutes of discussion.
The workshop opens with an introduction session where participants can raise the questions they would like to get addressed in the workshop; in the concluding wrap up we'll evaluate how far we got in answering these questions.
The tentative schedule looks as follows:
|Sesion I: Reconstruction
