		            Second Workshop on
          -- Workshop on Best Practices in Applying Aspect-Oriented
                       Software Development (BPAOSD'07) --
                                 at the
    6th International Conference on Aspect-Oriented Software Development
                  March 12 - 16, 2007 Vancouver, Canada



As AOSD is getting used in real-world applications, it becomes
important to document the best practices that have repeatedly proven
to work in practice. A first workshop on best practices in AO was held
at AOSD'06 which had the goal to mine best practices in using,
building, extending, or integrating AOSD technologies. Based on this
experience, we want to go one step further for AOSD'07 and collect patterns
and pattern candidates. The goal is to start documenting aspect-oriented

Patterns and pattern languages like
and http://www.infosys.tuwien.ac.at/Staff/zdun/publications/iee-use04.pdf
can serve as inspiration for potential participants and starting point
for reaching the workshop goals.

For this second workshop on the best practices in applying AOSD we solicit
workshop submissions in one of the following four categories:

- Patterns and pattern candidates for implementing systems with AOSD

- Patterns and pattern candidates  for building or extending AOSD

- Patterns and pattern candidates for using AOSD in conjunction with other
  concepts and technologies, such as model-driven architecture, model-driven
  software  engineering, product lines architectures, service-oriented
  architectures, component infrastructures, middleware, etc.

- Real-world application examples from which patterns can be mined

The workshop is planed as a full day event. The workshop will aim to
foster discussion and interaction rather than elaborate presentations. After
a short introduction by the organizers, all participants will be given
a chance to briefly introduce their position or their case studies to
provide triggers for discussion in the second part of the workshop by
stating a controversial point of view, or by introducing a new
point of view.

In the afternoon, we will foster an open discussion using the "Open
Space" technique. To give all workshop attendees sufficient
opportunities for active participation, the discussion will take place
in two to three groups in parallel. Each group will present their
results to the larger audience before the closing discussion.

If we have suitably mature submissions of patterns or pattern
candidates we will also run writer's workshops to improve the
patterns in the afternoon.


Every interested person is invited to apply for attendance by sending a
position paper to the organizers. The submission should be one to two pages
for position papers or up to 6 pages for full papers. Please
provide your papers in PDF format.
Submissions will be reviewed by the organizers.
The authors will be notified about acceptance before the early
registration deadline.
