WSA: The 2nd ECSA Track for Women in Software Architecture
11th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2017)

11 - 15 September 2017, University of Kent, Canterbury, United Kingdom

Internet and the new era of information society makes software to be mainly
oriented to society services and ICT (Information and Communication
Technologies) to access to universal knowledge in a globalized World. This
World is characterized by its diversity. Diversity plays a key role to have
success and be competitive and innovative in software development. It may
appear in different ways and perspectives and their combinations: gender,
culture, religion, allocation   of   human resources in different
countries, domains, etc.

In the case of gender diversity, the role of women in the Computing area
has gained more and more importance with the emerging information age. In
this scenario, following the success of last year edition, the special
track on "Women in Software Architecture" collocated to ECSA 2017 will
bring together students, young and senior researchers, as well as
practitioners to present, share, and celebrate their technical
accomplishments and experiences making research and/or working in the
Software Architecture field. There will be a mix of technical presentations
and a panel to discuss about current and future issues in the field by
leading experts from industry and academia. It is our pleasure to invite
you to the special track of "Women in Software Architecture"
