On monday the 25th, I will give a talk at the 17th international Workshop on Component Oriented Programming (WCOP) in Bertinoro, Italy. The talk is about respecting component architecture in the process of migrating customized product copies into a software product line (SPL). Such a migration process consists of software difference analysis as well as difference refinement analysis which need to consider individual requirements on the resulting SPL. All of these activities can be improved by considering the component architecture of the software.
The paper was assigned with the young investigator award which includes a second, extended presentation at the main CompArch conference on tuesday the 26th. The program of the workshop and the main conference can be found at http://comparch2012.dei.polimi.it/program.php
