James R. Cordy, Ralf Lämmel, and Andreas Winter. 05161 Executive Summary – Transformation Techniques in Software Engineering. In Transformation Techniques in Software Engineering. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 5161, pp. 1-24, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2006)


TrafoDagstuhl brought together representatives of the research communities in re-engineering, XML processing, model-driven architecture and other areas of software engineering that involve grammar- or schema-driven transformations. These various existing fields and application contexts involve widely varying transformation techniques – the tradeoffs of which are worth analysing. This seminar initiated a process of understanding each other's transformation techniques – their use cases, corresponding methods, tool support, best practises, and open problems. This process makes it possible to exchange knowledge and experience between these various communities. This effort should also help in transposing transformation concepts from established application fields to new fields. This executive summary reports on the conception of the seminar, the program, outcomes and future work. Most of the material from the seminar (including abstracts of all talks) as well as additional papers can be found on the dedicated web site: http://www.dagstuhl.de/05161/
