I've been told from the organizers that they're especially interested in
contributions from people working on IDEs, and Eclipse is specifically
mentioned in the call for partitipation text.

If any of you would like to submit a position paper, the deadline has
been extended to Monday 18th of August.

Modern modelling and software development needs software support
beyond that of simple editors and compilers. Often a model or software
piece can be generated from (fragments) of existing models or high level
codes. Software transformation systems are tools which are built for
such transformations. They range from specific tools for one purpose,
via simple pattern matching systems, to general transformation systems
which are easily programmed to do any reasonable transformation. Thus
the more general tools may be treated as meta-tools for generative
programming. They are currently playing a significant role in integrated
development environments (IDEs, e.g., Eclipse) and model driven
engineering (MDE).

Following on the success of STS'04 and STS'06, this workshop is once
again designed to bring together people working on software
transformation systems and those with an interest in software
transformation systems as a tool.

The workshop will this time to some extent focus on the relationship
between software transformation technologies and related technologies
such as reflection (supported, e.g., by Java), (template)
meta-programming (supported by C++), and staged programming languages.
We also want to look at the applications of transformation tools in IDEs
and MDE.

Workshop format
The workshop will have a small number of participants, around 20,
selected on the basis of short position papers submitted to the
organisers. The aim is to let people with different perspectives meet in
order to allow fruitful interaction.

Submission of intent to participate
If you find this workshop interesting you should send an e-mail to with your intent to participate and your area of
expertise/interest. Include a 2 page position paper if you want to give
a presentation. Space may be limited at the workshop, and preregistered
participants will be given priority.

All material must be received by the deadline. We prefer plain ISO or
UTF-8 documents (txt), but latex (only use standard packages) and pdf
formats are also acceptable.
