Brief Bio
Mehmet Aksit holds an M.Sc. degree from the Eindhoven University of Technology and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Twente. Currently, he is working as a full professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Twente and affiliated with the institute Centre for Telematics and Information Technology. He has served many conferences and symposia. For example, he was the program (co) chair of ECOOP'97, SACT'00, HQSAD'00, NoD'02 and AOSD2003. He was the tutorial chair of the ECOOP'92 conference and the organizing chair of the AOSD'02 conference. He has been also serving as a program committee member of many international conferences and as a reviewer of several journals. He is the co-founder and has been the co-editor in chief of Transactions on Aspect-Oriented Software Development (published by Springer-Verlag) until March 2007. Currently, he is at the editorial board of this journal. He has organized special journal issues as a co-guest editor on topics such as “Computational Intelligence in software engineering”, “Auto-adaptable systems”, “Model Driven Architecture”. In addition, since 1988, he has been serving as a reviewer of various European projects. He is the co-founder of Aspect-oriented association, where he has served as the steering committee member until March 2008. He is the steering committee member of AITO, which organizes the ECOOP conference series. He is the steering committee member of the Turkish Software Architecture Group, which organizes National conferences on this topic.


Optimization techniques are adopted, for example, in scheduling, planning (airports, production), tuning, allocation (HPC), resource optimization (energy), routing (communication), synthesis (decision support, auto-design, machine learning), search (big-data, auto-design), reliability (sensor fusion, configuration), classification (security, pattern recognition), etc. The companies which develop such systems generally market families of products. Software engineering aspects such as reducing complexity, enhancing reusability, adaptability, reliability, performance, etc. can be considered essential if economic development and maintenance of such systems have to be assured. Relatively much less attention has been paid by the SE community to consider SE aspects of software systems with embedded optimization techniques. This workshop aims at specifying, assessing and improving software engineering (SE) aspects of software systems which incorporate optimization techniques.

Topics of Interest
SE engineering techniques dedicated for improving SE aspects of systems embedding optimization techniques by using, for example:
  • Automated design and search based methods including solver-based techniques and Patterns
  • Domain-specific architectures, etc.
  • Product-Line Engineering
  • Domain-specific languages
  • Context-oriented, aspect-oriented and feature-oriented languages
  • Reflective techniques
  • Domain modeling
  • Model-driven engineering
  • Self-tuning
  • Auto-adaptive systems
  • Machine-learning
