International Software Architecture PhD School (ISAPS 2018)

The International Software Architecture PhD School (ISAPS) is a four-day 
intensive workshop that will provide young researchers and practicing 
architects from industry the opportunity to learn from the leaders in 
the field the most recent methods, tools, and theories produced by top 
research groups around the world and in industrial environments.

For whom:
For young researchers and practicing software architects.

Monday April 23rd to Thursday April 26th (full time), 2018.

The school is hosted by the Lorentz center on the campus of the 
University of Leiden, in The Netherlands, a short 30 minutes west of 
3rd Floor Oort Building, Niels Bohrweg 2, Leiden, Netherlands 

School format:
The format combines lectures on cutting-edge software architecture 
topics (mornings) with hands-on sessions on industrial cases (afternoons):
Day 1: The decision-making process in Software Architecture design.
Day 2: Hyper-scalable Software Architectures.
Day 3: The role of the software architect. Technical debt at the 
architectural level.
Day 4: Architecture representation and analysis. Software Architecture 
and DevOps.

- Len Bass was a researcher at the SEI, then at the National ICT in 
Australia. He is the co-author of the best selling book ‘Software 
architecture in Practice’, and ‘DevOps: A Software Architect's Perspective’.
- Ian Gorton is professor at the Northeastern University, Seattle, USA, 
his interest is in Architecture Principles for analyzing and designing 
complex, high performance distributed systems.
- Rich Hilliard is independent architect and consultant in Boston, USA. 
He is the author of the ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010 standard on Architecture 
- Ipek Ozkaya is a principal researcher at the SEI, where she focuses on 
software economics, software architecture, technical debt and software 
- Antony Tang is associate professor at the Swinburne University in 
Melbourne; his  interest is in software architectural design and design

SIKS PhD-students working on the ISAPS topics are strongly encouraged to 
apply. However the number of seats is limited. Applications will be 
evaluated by the organizers based on need and fit in the ISAPS topics. 
All SIKS PhD-students will be informed about the decision as soon as 

The Lorentz Center
The Lorentz Center is a Dutch national center for international 
workshops in all scientific disciplines. Its guiding philosophy is that 
innovative research thrives on interaction between creative researchers. 
Lorentz Center workshops focus on new collaborations and on interactions 
in highly diverse groups of researchers – international and with 
different scientific viewpoints as well as seniority, gender, and culture.
The Lorentz Center receives structural financial support by Leiden 
University, and by the Dutch research councils Netherlands Organisation 
for Scientific Research NWO, Foundation for Fundamental Research on 
Matter FOM, and Technology Foundation STW.

In cooperation with SIKS (www.siks.nl <http://www.siks.nl/>). Sponsored 
by CGI (www.cgi.com <https://www.cgi.com>).
