Aspect-oriented Software Development (AOSD) is receiving considerableattention in the software engineering and programming language communities.Since 1997, there have been several successful workshops on AOSD at theleading software engineering conferences. Many have felt that AOSD may havebeen ahead of its time, but the practicality and promise of this paradigm iscatching up with the theory. This new book offers the definitve look at AOSDfrom the movers and shakers behind this concept. Just as object-orientedprogramming was a radical departure from structured programming, AOSD isa departure from the OO concept. AOSD offers increased flexibility and abetter way to develop complex systems without sacrificing scalability, security, and other important concerns. In this book, readers will learn the state-of-theartbest practices in AOSD, and will be able to help their organizations savetime and money by developing complex software systems more efficiently

Tzilla Elrad is a research professor in the Department of Computer Science at Illinois Institute of Technology, where she heads the Concurrent Software Systems research group. She received her B.S. in mathematics and physics from the Hebrew University and her M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Syracuse University, NY and the Technion, Israel, respectively. Her research interests include concurrent programming languages design, adaptive software systems development, and formal reasoning.

Siobhán Clarke is a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Trinity College, Dublin. Her research interests include aspect-oriented software development, context-aware computing and programming models for mobile, sentient, context-aware systems. She received her B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Dublin City University. Prior to her career in research, she worked as a software engineer with IBM for 11 years.

Mehmet Aks¸it holds an M.S. from the Eindhoven University of Technology and a Ph.D. from the University of Twente. He is a professor in the Department of Computer Science, University of Twente, and he is also affiliated with the Centre for Telematics and Information Technology. He (and his group) have developed the composition filters aspect-oriented programming technique, synthesis-based architecture/software design, and techniques to synthesize architectures from solution domains for creating stable software systems, have applied fuzzy-logic to software design, and have created design formalisms such as Design Algebra for balancing various quality factors at different stages of software development.
