Graphs are well-known, well-understood, and frequently used means to depict networks of related items. Various types of graph transformation approaches have been proposed to specify, recognize, inspect, modify, and display certain classes of graphs representing structures of rather different domains. Research activities based on Graph Transformation (GT) build a well-established scientific discipline within computer science. Since 1978, the GT community organizes international workshops; since 1999 it organizes an international series of symposia dedicated to the application of graph transformation concepts (AGTIVE) as well as - since 2002 - the International Conferences on Graph Transformation (ICGT). All these events are published as Springer Press Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) proceedings.
AGTIVE '11 is the fourth workshop/symposium of this kind of the GT community for researchers and industrial practitioners that are interested in the application of precisely defined and well-understood graph-based transformation techniques in a broad sense working on any kind of object-relational structure. It combines a traditional conference program with open space workshop elements that give its participants the freedom to organize their own panels, discussion groups or even start joint software development activities.
The first AGTIVE event took place at Monastery Rolduc, Kerkrade, The Netherlands in 1999. The proceedings appeared as vol. 1779 of the Springer LNCS Series. The location of the second workshop in 2003 was the Omni Hotel, Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. The proceedings appeared as LNCS vol. 3062. The third workshop took place in Schlosshotel am Bergpark Wilhelshöhe, Kassel, Germany in 2007 while the proceedings was published as LNCS vol. 5088.
The intention of the AGTIVE workshops/symposia is to
- bring the practice-oriented GT community together
- study and integrate different GT approaches, and
- build a bridge between academia and industry.
AGTIVE '11 will put a special emphasis on the role GT plays for developing languages, tools, and methods for service-oriented applications or embedded systems
