The Third Latin-American Workshop on Aspect-Oriented Software Development (LA-WASP.09) aims at bringing together the Latin-American and international research communities interested in topics related to AOSD to share and discuss ideas, strengthen research group collaborations and identify new research opportunities.

The LA-WASP.09 workshop follows from the three successful editions of the Brazilian Workshop on AOSD (WASP.04, WASP.05 and WASP.06) and the first two editions of the Latin American Workshop on AOSD (LA-WASP.07 and LA-WASP.08).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Requirements Engineering (Early Aspects)
- Software Architectures, Product Lines and Frameworks
- Design Languages
- UML and Model-Oriented Architectures
- General-Purpose and Domain-Specific Aspect Languages
- Software Processes
- Metrics and Assessment
- Reuse, Maintenance and Adaptability
- Software Verification, Validation and Testing
- Software Re-engineering and Refactoring
- Contracts, Components and Aspects
- Interference and Composition of Aspects
- Dynamic Configuration
- Computational Reflection and Metaprogramming
- Aspect-Oriented Middleware
- Formal Methods
- Development Methods
- Development Environments and Tools
- Industrial Applications of AOSD
- Practical studies involving AOSD
- Comparative Studies Between AOSD and Other Development Paradigms
- AOSD Education
