The key objective of this workshop is to explore innovative approaches
to the adoption of software engineering tools and practices through the
extension of Commercial Off The Shelf Software (COTS) products
and/or middleware technologies. The workshop aims to advance the
understanding and evaluation of adoption of software engineering tools
and practices by bringing together researchers and practitioners who
investigate novel solutions to software engineering adoption issues.
