Seventh International Conference on
Generative Programming and Component Engineering (GPCE'08)
Nashville, Tennessee
(co-located with OOPSLA 2008)

*  Only Six Days Left for Early Registration  *


Generative and component approaches are revolutionizing software
development similar to how automation and components revolutionized
manufacturing. Generative Programming (developing programs that
synthesize other programs), Component Engineering (raising the level
of modularization and analysis in application design), and
Domain-Specific Languages (elevating program specifications to compact
domain-specific notations that are easier to write, maintain, and
analyze) are key technologies for automating program development.

GPCE provides a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in
foundational techniques for enhancing the productivity, quality, and
time-to-market in software development that stems from deploying
standard components and automating program generation. In addition to
exploring cutting-edge techniques for developing generative and
component-based software, our goal is to foster further
cross-fertilization between the software engineering research
community and the programming languages community.

GPCE 2008 will be co-located with OOPSLA, in Nashville, Tennessee. The
GPCE technical program will take place on Oct. 19-20, before the OOPSLA
technical program begins. Other GPCE events (workshops and tutorials)
will run in parallel with OOPSLA events on Oct 21-23. GPCE'08 is
sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN, in cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT.  GPCE'08
proceedings published by ACM Press.
