Summary:
The meeting will start with an A.G.M. and election of Committee members for 2006-7.

Aspect-oriented software development (AOSD) is emerging as a viable approach for allowing the separate expression of multiple concerns along with "weaving" technologies for knitting together these separate expressions into coherent systems.

Thanks to its great promise as an approach to simplifying the development of complex systems, many expert observers view AOSD as a worthwhile successor to the prevalent object-oriented paradigm.

This talk describes the Theme approach to aspect-oriented analysis and design. It describes a means to group requirements into separate concerns while also separating aspectual concerns, to design separated concerns, to compose designs, and to map designs to implementation.
