The 34rd ACM/SIGAPP Symposium On Applied Computing (SAC 2019)
The 7th track on Software Architecture: Theory, Technology, and
Applications (SA-TTA)

Limassol, Cyprus
April 8 - 12,

**Aim and scope**
The 7th edition of the track Software Architecture: Theory, Technology, and
Applications (SA-TTA 2019) is part of the 34rd ACM/SIGAPP Symposium on
Applied Computing (SAC 2019). For the past thirty-three years, ACM SAC has
been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer
engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the

Software Architecture is considered a consolidated and necessary discipline
centered on the idea of reducing complexity in software development and
evolution through abstraction and separation of concerns. Designing
software architectures that enable provisioning and evolution of functional
requirements and exhibit a good tradeoff between multiple quality
attributes (or extra-functional requirements) is hard and still
challenging. At the same time having adaptable software architectures able
to change their topology and behavior to overcome certain environmental
situations is still under analysis in different domains especially when
they are used to realize complex and distributed systems. The goal of the
track SA-TTA is to bring together researchers and industry R&D having the
common objective of transforming Software Architecture into a mature
discipline leveraging on both solid scientific foundations and validated
engineering methodologies and tools.  SA-TTA is focused on how to address
functional requirements and quality characteristics in the design,
maintenance, adaptation and evolution of software architectures through the
support of automated techniques and tools. Of special interest are
architecture description languages, formalisms, techniques, methodologies,
tools, and runtime environments that support these activities, possibly
exploiting model-driven engineering principles. A special emphasis will be
put also on technical aspects of software architectures development for
specific class of software systems and application domains.

SA-TTA will be a forum on Software Architecture for scholars, educators,
research scientists, engineers, and practitioners on the following
- Architecture description languages and component models for Software
- Model-driven methodologies and tools for Software Architecture modeling
and analysis
- Architectural patterns, tactics, styles, viewpoints, and tool support
- Software architecture and development practices such as agile
development, DevOps and global software development
- Architecture quality measures and tool support
- Formal validation and verification techniques for Software Architectures
- Linking architecture to requirements and implementation
- Testing based on Software Architecture
- Recovery of Software Architecture
- Architecture based software evolution and maintenance
- Service-oriented Architectures and Microservices
- Software Architectures for Software Product Lines
- Software Architectures for legacy systems and systems integration
- Software Architectures for Systems of Systems, IoT systems, Cyber
Physical Systems, software ecosystems, self-adaptive systems, and
autonomous systems
- Software Architectures for Cloud-based applications, Mobile Cloud
applications and Cloud IoT applications
- Software Architectures for Social Computing and Sociotechnical systems
- Software Architectures for Data-Intensive Systems and Big Data
- Software Architectures for Blockchain-based applications
- Software Architectures for Bio-inspired Systems and Machine Learning
- State-of-the-art and state-of-practice in software architecture
- Industrial experiments and case studies

Paper submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via the SAC
2019 website: https://www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2019/
Two types of submissions are allowed: regular papers and student research

Regular papers:  Authors are invited to submit original unpublished papers.
Submission of the same paper to multiple tracks is not allowed. The program
committee will blindly review submissions to the track. The author(s)
name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and
self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate blind
review. SA-TTA track chairs will not submit to the track. Submissions from
SA-TTA PC members and track chairs of other SAC tracks are welcome.

Regular papers are limited to 8 pages, in camera-ready format, included in
the registration fee. Authors have the option to include up to 2 additional
pages at extra charge (max of 10 pages). Posters are limited to 3 pages, in
camera-ready format, included in the registration fee. Authors have the
option to include only one (1) additional page at extra charge (max of 4
pages). Further details on the paper format, template, and submission
guidelines can be found on the SAC 2019 website:

Student Research Competition: The SAC 2019 Student Research Competition
(SRC) program provides graduate students the opportunity to meet and
exchange ideas with researchers and practitioners in their areas of
interest. Active graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific
community on their research ideas are invited to submit abstracts of their
original un-published and in-progress research work in the Software
Architecture focus area. Student research abstracts are limited to 4 pages,
in camera-ready format, included in the registration fee. No extra pages
are allowed.
For more details, visit the SAC 2019 website:

**Paper Registration and presentation**
Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster
in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST
present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be
included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of scheduled papers and
posters will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library.

**Important Dates**
Sept 10, 2018: Submission of regular papers and SRC abstracts
Nov 10, 2018: Notification of papers and posters acceptance/rejection
Nov 10, 2018 : Notification of SRC abstracts acceptance/rejection
Nov 25, 2018: Camera-ready copies of accepted papers/SRC
Dec 10, 2018: Author registration due date
