MetaModeling06 (Wednesday, March 29th, 2006)
Tutorial: Meta-Models, Meta-Classes and Meta-Objects by Prof. Stéphane Ducasse.

The aim of this lecture is to gain insight into meta-level architectures by building a simple yet powerful reflective object-oriented kernel. Doing that the attendees will better understand the concepts of method lookup, self/super, instance allocation, initialization, class creation. Moreover, this lecture will offer a deep insight on the essence of object-oriented programming: instantiation and inheritance. The reflective kernels under study are the ones of ObjVlisp, D-SOM (IBM) and Smalltalk-78.

FOTS LORE Workshop on Evolving Repositories (FLOWER)
When? Monday, January 23rd.

What? First workshop aimed at integrating the tool chain used within the software engineering groups at the University of Antwerp. In the future, this workhop may be opened to researchers from other groups working with related repository technologies. Feel free to contact us if you're interested to participate next year.

Preparation for this meeting may be limited to the creation of a few slides, potentially even a demo of data collection or analysis.

Graph Transformation for Refactoring (Monday and Tuesday, April 5th-6th, 2004)
The aim of this workshop is to bring together a number of researchers interested in the use of graph rewriting for refactoring. In this way we can get to know each other's work, and discuss differences and commonalities. More broadly we can consider the advantages and disadvantages of graph rewriting, as compared to other formalisms, for describing various aspects of refactoring. Also, and perhaps most most importantly, we wish to identify possibilities for cooperation, within SegraVis (EU) and the project "Formal Foundation for Software Refactoring" (FWO, Belgium)
Seminar on "Tools for Software Engineering" and "Telecom"
Each year, the University of Antwerp invites a number of experts in the field of Computer Science, to give a presentation about their work, in order to expose students to new and emerging trends. For already the fourth consecutive year now, we organize some of these seminars in conjunction with two associated institutions, namely the "Hogeschool Antwerpen" and the "Karel De Grote Hogeschool". As such, we aim to foster cross-fertilization between the closely related fields of ICT and Computer Science.
JaGra 2005
This workshop aims at working out a concrete graph transformation semantics for Java. The workshop will consist of a number of plenary sessions and smaller working group sessions, of 2-3 persons each. Working groups will concentrate on modelling the statics and dynamics of particular isolated language features; plenary sessions are organized to integrate the results into a single meta-model and set of rules.
