--- SCOPE ---

The European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA) is the premier
European software architecture 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 research and practice. The conference will feature a
research track, an industrial track, an education and training track,
keynotes, workshops, tutorials, tool and demonstrations, and panels. 

--- TOPICS ---

The program committee of ECSA 2016 seeks submissions of papers describing
basic and applied research, novel applications and experience reports on all
topics related to software architectures including, but not limited to:
- Foundational principles of software architecture
- Linking requirements engineering and software architectures
- Quality attributes and software architectures
- Architectural design, analysis and evaluation
- Architecture description languages and meta-models
- Architecture verification and validation
- Management of architectural knowledge, decisions, and rationale
- Cross disciplinary efforts and software architecture
- Architectural patterns, styles and tactics, reference architectures
- Architecture viewpoints and views
- Architecture conformance
- Architecture-based synthesis, code generation
- Architecture transformation and refinement
- Architecture refactoring and reengineering, reverse engineering
- Architecture-based evolution
- Architectures for reconfigurable and self-adaptive systems
- Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Web services,
- Architectures for ultra-large scale, long-lived systems and
- Software architecture and the cloud
- Software architecture and big data
- Software architecture and virtualization
- Architectures for cyber-physical systems
- Architectural concerns of autonomic systems
- Architecture-centric process models and frameworks
- Software architecture and agility
- Architecture-centric model driven engineering
- Component-based models and deployment, middleware
- Software architecture and system architecture, including software-defined
- Software tools and environments for architecture-centric software
- Industrial applications, case studies, best practices and experience
- Empirical studies, systematic literature reviews and mapping studies in
software architecture


The ECSA 2016 main track seeks three types of submissions to foster the
active participation of researchers and practitioners:

- Full research papers and Experience papers (max. 16 pages in LNCS style)
that describe novel contributions to software architecture research
(submissions should cover work that has a sound scientific/technological
basis and has been validated).
- Short papers (max. 8 pages in LNCS style) that present promising
preliminary results from work-in-progress or research challenges in a topic
of software architecture research (submissions should cover work that has a
sound basis, but perhaps has not been validated in full).
- Education and Training papers (max. 12 pages in LNCS style) that address
challenges and best practices in in teaching and training of software
architecture, such as methods, project management, and academia-industry
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. For details about submitting papers, see http://ecsa2016.iku.edu.tr.
