Mission

Variability management is a major challenge in the development, maintenance, and evolution of software-intensive systems.
An important precondition to the effective and efficient management of variability is that it must be explicitly modelled.

Thus VaMoS 2013 will focus broadly on innovative work in the area of variability modelling and management.
We particularly invite contributions with a strong variability modelling aspect, but also addressing the wider area of variability management, e.g., requirements, architecture, implementation, and evolution.

The VaMoS workshop series aims at bringing together researchers from different areas dedicated to mastering variability to discuss advantages, drawbacks, and complementarities of various approaches and to present new results for mastering variability throughout the whole life cycle of systems, system families, and product lines.

The workshop will feature invited keynotes as well as peer-reviewed paper presentations.
