Call for Papers

Eclipse Technology eXchange (ETX) Workshop at OOPSLA 2007

Montréal, Québec, Canada
October 21, 2007

Theme and goals of the workshop

The Eclipse platform is designed for building integrated development environments (IDEs) for object-oriented application development. Building on the success of the Eclipse Technology eXchange workshops at OOPSLA 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006, we invite original papers that describe potential new uses of Eclipse and how the core Eclipse technology can be leveraged, improved and/or extended for research and teaching projects. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop.

Due to the popularity of this workshop in the past, this year's ETX will be a 1.5 day event. Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the use of Eclipse for:

  • IDEs
  • supporting the software development process
  • debugging or testing
  • design requirements/specification
  • modeling environments or frameworks
  • aspect-oriented programming
  • program analysis and transformation, such as for refactoring, optimization, or obfuscation
  • computer-based learning
  • software engineering education
  • teaching foundations of object-oriented programming
  • courseware
  • teaching an introductory undergraduate programming course
  • web service applications
  • rich client applications
