Feature Interactions in Software and Communication Systems IX
# of pages220
This publication deals with the feature interaction problem in telecommunication systems. In this domain, an interaction occurs when one telecommunications feature/service modifies or subverts the operation of another one. Undesired interactions can both lower this quality and delay service provisioning. Therefore, the problem of feature interactions in telecommunications is of great importance. In the past decade, a lot of attention has been devoted to the development of methods for detection and resolution of feature interactions. However, this feature interaction phenomenon is not unique to the domain of telecommunications systems. It can also occur in any large software system that is subject to continuous changes. All the submitted papers in this publication have been peer reviewed by at least two reviewers drawn from industry or academia.
