Modern software systems are increasingly large, complex, heterogeneous and open. Developers and maintainers are increasingly turning towards advanced tools and environments to help them manage this complexity.

But what do these tools offer? What is the state-of-the-art in such tools? And do they really help developers with the problems they are facing today?

This CHOOSE Forum will offer a series of presentations of state-of-the-art tools for managing, maintaining, analyzing and reengineering complex software systems. The day will conclude with a session in which developers in charge of complex software systems will have the opportunity to assess and evaluate the state-of-the-art.

The day also includes the CHOOSE General Assembly, including reports from the President and the Treasurer, and elections for the CHOOSE Executive Board.
