Abstract

Many companies use an ad hoc notation to describe the domain they work in. We consider this notation, that often occurs in the form of spreadsheets, as an unexplored source of domain knowledge. With this research we will investigate how software engineering techniques, like reverse engineering and data mining, can be applied to spreadsheets. Our first goal is to develop means to formalize spreadsheets. Formalization can be used in different ways, such as the validation of existing spreadsheets, documentation, and also for the transformation of spreadsheets into applications.
