SOS - Evol Series

SOS-EVOL 2014 Workshop on Open Source Evolution

SOS-Evol is a series of annual international workshops gathering PhD students, researchers and practitioners interested in studying the evolution of libre and open source software.

Rather than being a traditional researcher-only event, SOS-EVOL aims to bring researchers, open source developers and industry practitioners together to exchange ideas, techniques and open issues. To stimulate this exchange, we plan to include ⅓ of open source developers in its PC. Given that FOSDEM 2014 will be held in Brussels the weekend before our workshop, we believe this is a perfect opportunity for gathering both communities.

This year, SOS-Evol will be co-located with CSMR-WCRE 2014.
