The Software Architecture Portal

Welcome to the Software Architecture Portal, website of IFIP Working Group 2.10 on Software Architecture, part of TC 2, SOFTWARE: Theory and Practice. The portal provides information about IFIP WG 2.10, the WICSA conference series, the Software Architecture Village wiki, and other resources on software architecture.

ICSA = WICSA + CompArch!

ICSA is the integration of WICSA and CompArch. ICSA will extend the WICSA history and tradition as the premier gathering of practitioners and researchers interested in finding out about and improving the state of practice of software Architecture. ICSA will also extend the CompArch history (and its constituent events CBSE and QoSA), of designing component-based systems and analyzing the quality of architectures

ICSA 2017: 5–7 April 2017, Gothenburg, SWEDEN
