Call for Papers
7th European Conference on Software Architecture - ECSA 2013
July 1-5, 2013, Montpellier, France


The European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA) is the premier 
European conference providing researchers, practitioners, and educators 
with a platform to present and discuss the most recent, innovative and 
significant findings and experiences in the field of Software Architecture.


The 7th ECSA will be held in Montpellier, France, colocated with ECOOP 
2013 and ECMFA 2013 in a unique gathering in software related trends - 
the joint organization of these key conferences provides a unique 
opportunity to gather practitioners and researchers on software 
architecture, modelling and development.


ECSA 2013 seeks submissions of original papers describing basic and 
applied research, novel applications, research challenges and experience 
reports on all topics related to software architecture, including, but 
not limited to:
- architecture description, modelling, languages,
- reference architectures, architectural styles, patterns,
- architectural decisions, architectural knowledge,
- architecture analysis, validation, verification,
- architecture transformation, refinement, implementation,
- architecture evolution, variability,
- architecture reengineering, recovery,
- architecture for reconfigurable, adaptive systems,
- architecture conformance, run-time monitoring, autonomic management,
- architecture for systems-of-systems, complex systems, critical 
systems, networked systems,
- software tools/environments for software architecture,
- processes, methods, techniques and tools for architecture-centric 
software engineering,
- architecture-centric model driven engineering,
- requirements engineering and software architectures,
- quality attributes and extra-functional properties for software 
- service-oriented architecture, component-based architecture, service 
discovery, composition, orchestration, choreography,
- technology and frameworks supporting software architecture,
- industrial applications, case studies, best practices and experience 


ECSA 2013 seeks four types of submissions to foster the active 
participation of researchers and practitioners:
- Full research papers and Experience papers (max. 16 pages in LNCS 
style) which describe novel contributions to software architecture 
research (submissions should cover work that has a sound 
scientific/technological basis and has been validated).
- Emerging research papers (max. 8 pages in LNCS style) which present 
promising preliminary results from work-in-progress in a topic of 
software architecture research (submissions should cover work that has a 
sound basis, but perhaps has not been validated in full).
- Research challenge papers (max. 4 pages in LNCS style) which present 
significant research challenges in theory or practice of software 
architecture (submissions should clearly present the research questions 
and their rationale).

All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous peer review process, and be 
selected based on originality, quality, soundness and relevance. All 
accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by 
Springer-Verlag as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) 
series. The submissions should be prepared using the Springer LNCS style.
