Variability management is a major challenge during the development, maintenance, and evolution of software-intensive systems. An important precondition for the effective and efficient management of variability is that it must be explicitly modelled. With variability modelling coming of age, it is important to consider also non-functional properties of variable software systems. VaMoS 2017 particularly welcomes approaches that deal with the measurement, prediction, and modelling of non-functional features and properties, as well as approaches that address the wider spectrum of variability management, like requirements, architecture, implementation, verification, evolution and refactoring.

The VaMoS workshop series aims to bring together researchers from different areas dedicated to mastering variability in order to discuss advantages, drawbacks, and complementarities of various approaches, and to present new results for mastering variability throughout the life cycle of systems, system families, and (software) product lines.

VaMoS 2017 will be held at the TU/e Science park of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Eindhoven and TU/e are at the heart of Brainport, a leading European technology region, and a center for innovation and hi-tech industry, with the TU/e Science park, High Tech Campus Eindhoven, and the nearby Automotive Campus in Helmond. Eindhoven is also a center of Dutch industrial design, and hosts many cultural events and museums.
