Co-located with OSS2009
The 5th International Conference on Open Source Systems
June 3-6, 2009, Skovde, Sweden

Dear colleague,

We would like to inform you that collocated with OSS 2009, a Doctoral
Consortium will be organized on June 3.

Hereby, you are kindly invited to attend the Doctoral Consortium. We
greatly welcome the participation of both students and researchers that
will attend the OSS 2009 conference.

It is our aim to provide students with high-quality feedback on their
research proposal. We strongly believe faculty members can provide
valuable feedback that will be beneficial to PhD students. For PhD
students, attending the discussion on research proposals of other PhD
students may be beneficial as well, as it provides ideas on what future
reactions to their own research may be.

A list of papers accepted to the Doctoral Consortium for presentation
is available on our website:
http://www.ua.ac.be/main.aspx?c=kris.ven&n=74628. Given the wide range
of topics, we are confident that some of these topics will be of

Call for papers

  Over the last years, the composition of software parts is
increasingly considered a crucial operation to build and maintain
large software systems. The continuous and independent evolution of
readily available components suggested that open platforms can better
accommodate and manage them as normally happens in systems like open
source software distributions, Eclipse, and J2EE, just to mention a
few. The critical mass represented by such software components
requires organizations, such as companies, research groups, and open
source communities, to collaborate on custom software development,
implementation and shared services. Such infrastructures can be
regarded as ecosystems, i.e., collections of software projects that
possibly belong to organizations, developed in parallel by the
