In conjunction with the ACM/IEEE 33rd International Conference on Software Engineering ICSE 2013

This workshop is intended to be a working event focused on understanding and defining the foundations for consistency and change management of software systems within the scope of artifact-to-artifact (model-to-model) traceability. The workshop will explore topics related to:

  • Theory of software traceability;
  • Traceability between artifacts and processes;
  • The semantics of traceability links;
  • Recovery of traceability links;
  • Visualization of traceability links;
  • Traceability in model-driven development;
  • Traceability in domain-specific languages;
  • Interoperable approaches to support traceability;
  • Human aspects of traceability management;
  • Traceability in emerging forms of software engineering including product lines, frameworks, components, services, etc.;
  • Empirical studies on traceability.

Specific workshop goals include:
  • Broadening awareness within the software engineering community of the potential for the application of traceability;
  • Facilitating the exchange of ideas and interaction between international researchers;
  • Defining open and key research problems faced in realizing usable tools/approach for traceability recovery and management;
  • Constructing a foundation of materials for future research on traceability.
