Software Evolution in Belgium and the Netherlands


Call for participation

The BENEVOL software evolution research seminar aims to gather junior and senior researchers from Belgium, the Netherlands, and neighboring countries to meet and to discuss new ideas, important problems and obtained research results in the field of software evolution.

Prospective speakers (junior or senior researchers or practitioners active in the field) are invited to submit an extended abstract (max. 2 A4 pages) of a talk. Based on these extended abstracts, the organization will construct an exciting program. The seminar particularly welcomes presentations of ongoing research or tools developed by PhD students. Senior researchers will provide the necessary feedback and lively discussions.
