Topics

Suggested topic areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Quality by software patterns: management, assurance, measurement, rating, testing, review and evaluation of quality in software products, processes, people and projects with software patterns (e.g. how much does maintainability of software become high by applying design patterns? )
  • Quality of software patterns: management, assurance, measurement, rating, testing, review and evaluation of quality of software patterns
  • Quality specific patterns: e.g., security patterns, safety patterns and performance patterns
  • Quality aspects of activities related to software patterns
  • Quality in pattern system and languages: how to build quality systems of patterns, pattern compositions, and stable/testable pattern languages
  • Patterns and pattern languages pitfalls and how to avoid them
  • Nature of "Quality Without A Name (QWAN)" in software development
  • Methods and tools: modeling tools, measurement tools, testing tools and management tools related to software patterns quality
  • Case studies and lessons learned from the viewpoint of quality
  • Relationships among software patterns and related technologies from the viewpoint of quality

Please note that in this workshop we will use the following definition (and related definitions) on Software Quality: capability of software product to satisfy stated and implied needs when used under specified conditions -- ISO/IEC 25000, ISO/IEC 9126
