The International Conference on Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD) is the premier conference on software modularity that goes beyond traditional abstraction boundaries. The past series of the conferences have been mainly investigating "the aspects" for 10 years and explored their clear benefits. Furthermore, they have revealed that advanced modularity is the core notion for building modern software systems and hence other new modularization paradigms and techniques are also getting spotlighted today.

AOSD 2011 seeks to foster advanced modularization paradigms and techniques, which are not limited to aspects thus re-emphasizing the original intention to establish AOSD as a conference on advanced separation of concerns and software modularity for extensibility, flexibility, and adaptability.

AOSD 2011 invites high quality papers reporting documented research results emerging from work on new notions of modularity in computer systems, software engineering, programming languages, and other areas.  Here, the modularity is not only of code but also across lifecycle artifacts (e.g., from requirements to tests).

A novelty of AOSD 2011 is that authors can submit their papers at either 1st or 2nd round. The two rounds are independent but the accepted papers are presented together at the conference. If the paper is submitted at the 1st round and the review result is "resubmit after revision", the authors can resubmit the revised paper at the 2nd round with a letter to the reviewers. Then the same reviewers will review the revised paper again. AOSD 2011 adopts this procedure for motivating the acceptance of potentially good papers (but that need adjustments) rather than rejecting them straight away.

Submissions will be carried out electronically via CyberChair. All papers must be submitted in PDF format. Submissions must be no more than 12 pages (including bibliography and any appendices) in standard ACM SIG Proceedings format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). More details can be found in http://www.aosd.net/2011/call_research.html
