2013 Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing  
When modeling families of ambient systems, we experience a number of special challenges due to unpredictable variability in the environments of the systems.  ...  In this paper, we propose a new language AO-PFA, which adapts the aspect-oriented paradigm to product families. This paradigm enhances the adaptability and evolvability of product families.  ...  We thank the numerous reviewers for their comments that helped us improve the quality of this paper.  ...
