Generative programming is an emerging paradigm aimed
at automating important tasks in software development,
compile-time and run-time code transformation, and the
creation of domain-specific languages and flexible libraries.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for
researchers and practitioners working in this area to discuss
state-of-the-art generative technologies and tools, and
exchange ideas about the future of generative programming.
Papers describing practical applications of generative styles,
and new research directions are expected. Suggested areas of
interest in the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Generative programming, metaprogramming
- Separation of concerns, aspect-oriented techniques
- Intentional programming
- Domain engineering and domain analysis
- Product-line architectures
- Compile-time and run-time code transformation
- Multi-stage languages
- Generic and Active library-development
- Analysis of language support for generative programming
- Semantics, type-systems of generative programs
- Case Studies and Demonstration Cases



RESEARCH PAPERS (full papers, 8-10 pages) as well as
TOOL DEMO PAPERS (up to 2 pages) should be submitted to
the WGT 2008 organizers in ENTCS format (
Submissions should be sent by e-mail to

Further information will be available at the WGT 2008 home page.
At least one author of each accepted submission must register
and present the paper at the workshop.



After revision, final copies of the accepted papers will be
published in Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science
(ENTCS), Elsevier Science (
