CALL FOR PRACTITIONER REPORTS
Second International Conference on
Generative Programming and Component Engineering (GPCE'03)
Industrial Track Chair:
Ulrich Eisenecker, University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern, Germany
Practitioner reports explore how concepts that sound good on paper work on real projects. They are a valuable means of communicating experiences, especially at the "bleeding edge" of technology. Many GPCE attendees want to find out what it is like to adopt new tools and development techniques; use new engineering methods; create domain-specific languages, generators, architectures and components; develop applications using the new technologies, etc. Expectations, beliefs, and hopes can be validated, or dashed, by the experience that is reported. GPCE attendees want objective reports with supporting evidence for any claims made. And they particularly want reports that discuss both benefits and drawbacks of the approaches used.
We seek for reports in two categories:
The report must contain a take-home-message for your readers; something they can learn and apply to their own work. Plain "how we did it" reports should be avoided.
Presented project and experience reports will take part in the audience vote for
the GPCE'03 Best Contribution Awards.
You are invited to submit a four to ten page project report presenting your
successful project or experience report describing your experience applying
technologies within the scope of GPCE'03.
The submission must include a short abstract suitable for inclusion in the
Advance Program should it be accepted. If your report is accepted for
presentation at GPCE, you will be expected to develop and present a 20 minute
talk that will be followed by discussion. The written reports will be published at gpce.org.
The submission, including full contact information (name, mailing address, telephone
and fax numbers, and electronic mail address), should be submitted as a PDF,
OpenOffice, or a Microsoft Word file to Ulrich W. Eisenecker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The report submissions will be reviewed separately from technical paper submissions by
a practitioner report committee chaired by Ulrich W. Eisenecker. The submission
should clearly state whether it should be reviewed as a project or experience
