The QAOOSE 2008 workshop has been held at ECOOP 2008 conference in Paphos, Cyprus on July 8th, 2008. This was the twelfth of the series of QAOOSE workshops intended to bring researchers and practitioners both from academia and industry together. The workshop provided a forum to discuss the current state of the art and the practice in the area of quantitative approaches in the fields related to object-orientation. This report includes a summary of the technical presentations and the subsequent discussions. Six papers has been accepted by the workshop organizers. The presentations were followed by vivid discussions.
