Next Wednesday I will be in Mons (Belgium) giving a talk about the dynamics of software evolution. I have been kindly invited by Tom Mens, director of the Software Engineering Lab @ UMons, to be part of the EvoluMons 2011 research seminar, along with Xavier Blanc (University of Bordeaux 1, France), Krzysztof Czarnecki (University of Waterloo, Canada) and Christropher Exton (University of Limerick, Ireland).
I have uploaded my slides, so you can get an idea of my talk even if you cannot be there:
The talk is a summary of all my works on software evolution of the last three or four years. Surprisingly, it fits everything together very well. So well indeed that I feel now forced to write a paper using this talk as a basis :-). There is also a good summary of those works in the paper I presented at the ICSM doctoral symposium in 2009 (there you can also find some links to my data sources).
On Thursday, there will be also another interesting event in the nearby Namur, the 5th International Workshop on Variability Modelling of Software Intensive Systems, but unfortunately I will not be able to attend that workshop.
If you are around Mons this week, poke me, and we can try to find the best bars (with the best wifi) in town.
