Software modularity and separation of concerns are important for reducing complexity at any abstraction level of software. We particularly focus on modular structures that cut across traditional abstraction boundaries, such as aspect-orientation and context-orientation.

Context-Oriented Programming and Comparative Evaluation
There are many programming paradigms for the separation of concerns (SoC). Each paradigm modularizes concerns in a different way. Context-oriented programming (COP) has been developed as a supplement to objectoriented programming (OOP), which is one of the most widely used paradigms for SoC. It modularizes concerns that are difﬁcult for OOP. In this paper, we focus on three paradigms – OOP, aspect-oriented programming (proposed as a supplement to OOP that has a different approach from COP), and COP – and study whether COP can modularize concerns better than other two paradigms in given situations. Then we determine the reasons why COP can or cannot better modularize concerns.
