Iris Groher (email) Iris Groher is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Systems Engineering and Automation at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. Prior to that, Iris has worked at Siemens AG, Corporate Technology, in Germany for 4 years. She received her doctoral degree from the Johannes Kepler University Linz in 2008. Iris' fields of interest include aspect-oriented software development, model-driven software development, and software product line engineering. She also co-organized workshops on Models and Aspects - Handling Crosscutting Concerns in MDSD at ECOOP 2005, 2006, and 2007, workshops on Best Practices in Applying Aspect-Oriented Software Development at AOSD 2006 and 2007 and workshops on Aspect-Oriented Product Line Engineering at GPCE 2006, 2007, and 2008.
Andy Kellens (email) Andy Kellens is a researcher at the Programming Technology Lab (PROG) of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, where he obtained a MSc (2003) and PhD (2007) degree. His research interests include aspect mining, automatic pointcut generation and co-evolution between design and implementation. Andy's research has lead to the development of IntensiVE, a tool suite based on declarative meta programming that allows for the documentation and verification of structural regularities with respect to the source code. Andy was one of the founders of the LATE workshop series and has been a co-organiser ever since the workshop's inception in 2005.
Christa Schwanninger (email) Christa Schwanninger is a Senior Research Scientist at Siemens AG, Corporate Technology, Erlangen, Germany. Christa's fields of interest are product line engineering, aspect-oriented software development, software architecture, distributed object computing and patterns. She leads industrial research in new and promising areas of software engineering and is a consultant for Siemens business units. She co-organized a series of workshops at OOPSLA, ECOOP, AOSD and SPLC conferences.
Bram Adams (email) Bram Adams is a researcher at the Software Analysis and Intelligence Lab (SAIL) of Queen's University, Canada, and an affiliate of the PROG lab at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium. He obtained a Master in Computer Science Engineering (2004) and a PhD in Computer Science (2008) at the GH-SEL lab, Ghent University, Belgium. His research focuses on the co-evolution of source code and the build system in general and its implications on the introduction of AOSD technology in legacy systems. To support this work, he has developed a flexible aspect language for C (Aspicere) and a re(verse)-engineering framework for build systems (MAKAO).
Uwe Hohenstein (email) Uwe is a Senior Engineer at Siemens AG, Corporate Technology,Munich, Germany. Uwe's fields of interest are aspect-oriented software development, software architecture, distributed object computing and database systems. He works as a researcher and consultant for Siemens business units.
Ademar Aguiar (email) Ademar Aguiar is a Professor at Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto (FEUP) and does Research & Development at INESC Porto. He has over 20 years of experience on software development and has specialised on software design and architecture, namely application frameworks and software patterns, agile processes, and software documentation, topics about which he has authored research papers and presented courses to academic and industrial audiences. He obtained a PhD at FEUP addressing the documentation of object-oriented application frameworks using an approach supported on wikis. Currently, his main research interests are on wiki-based tools to support agile software development, and architecture, design and evolution of complex software systems, such as framework-intensive applications.
Eddy Truyen (email) Eddy Truyen is a post-doctoral researcher at the Distributed Systems and Computer Networks (DistriNet) research group at the Katholic University of Leuven. He holds a PhD from that same university. Eddy's research interests include dynamic software architecture, aspect-oriented middleware and design of reusable aspect frameworks. He has co-organized the workshop on Views, Aspects and Roles at ECOOP 2005.
