Previous workshops related to aspect oriented software development, reflection organized at previous ECOOP conferences (e.g., RMA'00 1 and AOM-MeT'01 2 ) and conferences on the same topics (Reflection'01 and AOSD since 2002) have pointed out the growing interest on these topics and their relevance in the software evolution as techniques for code instrumentation. Very similar conclusions can be drawn by reading the contributions to the workshops on unanticipated software evolution (USE 2002 and

Following the example provided by these venues, the RAM-SE (Reflection, AOP and Meta-Data for Software Evolution) workshop has provided an opportunity for researchers with a broad range of interests in reflective techniques and aspectoriented software development to discuss recent developments of such a techniques in application to the software evolution. The workshop main goal was to encourage people to present works in progress. These works could cover all the spectrum from theory to practice. To ensure creativity, originality, and audience interests, participants have been selected by the workshop organizers on the basis of 5-page position paper. We hope that the workshop will help them to mature their ideas and to improve the quality of their future publications based on the presented work. The workshop proceedings are available as research report C-186 of the Department of Mathematical and Computing Sciences of the Tokyo Institute of Technology and freely downlodable from the workshop web site 4 .
