the next edition of AOSD is Perspectives on Modularity, which has a
lot to do with types...

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
