Call for Papers
The First Working IFIP Conference on Software Architecture (WICSA1) will provide a focused and dedicated forum for the international software architecture community to unify and coordinate its effort to advance the state of practice and research. An important goal of this working conference is to facilitate information exchange between practicing software architects and software architecture researchers. This conference will serve as a kickoff event for a new IFIP TC-2 Working Group on Software Architecture and will shape the focus and tasks of the working group for the initial period.
The conference will feature two keynotes who will present the state of research and the state of practice in software architecture. Each keynote will discuss where we are, where we should be, where the hard problems are, and where the strong leverage points are.
The working sessions of the conference will be organized to answer similar questions:
Attendance is limited to 100 and is by invitation on the basis of a submitted paper. Submissions will be refereed and all accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Technical papers will be evaluated for their originality, significance, soundness, and clarity. Experience papers will be evaluated on the significance of the experience and the insight gained into a problem domain or application of new methods and techniques. Position papers will be evaluated for their reasoned presentation of a point of view pertinent to conference themes.
We are soliciting submission of papers on all aspects of software architecture describing results of the research, research in progress, case studies, experience reports, and position statements. In particular we encourage submissions from industry that present or analyze experiences of software architecture for complex systems, and expose problems in the design, implementation, or evolution of software architectures.
Specific topics of interest include:
