International Workshop on Program Understanding

Aims and Scope

The workshop is a satellite event of the Andrei Ershov Seventh International Conference "Perspectives of System Informatics". The aim of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for active researchers in the field of system programming to exchange new ideas and establish cooperation. Two previous workshops - PU´03 and PU´06 - were very successful regarding the level of both scientific and social programme.

Workshop Topics

  • formal and informal program models;
  • program specification, transformation and verification;
  • semantics, analysis, and manipulation of programs;
  • programming paradigms;
  • program and system construction for parallel and distributed computing;
  • system re-engineering and reuse;
  • integrated programming environments;
  • software architectures;
  • software maintenance and testing;
  • program understanding and visualization;
  • knowledge-based systems and knowledge engineering; data models;
  • advanced data management in distributed environments;
  • educational programming languages;
  • teaching programming.
