CFP: ECSA Tracks

***Industry Track***
The Industry Track at ECSA 2018 will bring together researchers and practicing architects from local, European, and worldwide communities. We are seeking contributions from industry that share best practices, failures, and professional experiences designing, implementing, and evaluating software architectures. In particular, we are interested in experiences featuring emerging technologies, such as Internet of Things, Machine Learning, Blockchain, Microservices, Software Defined Infrastructures, DevOps, and any disruptive technology that is affecting the way that software systems are architected.

***PhD Symposium***
The goal of the Doctoral Symposium is to encourage PhD students in the field of software architecture to actively participate in and contribute to the 12th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2018). Students will be able to present their research goals, methods and (preliminary) results. They will interact closely with established researchers in their fields, receive feedback on their work and get advice on managing their research. The symposium will also help participants to establish a new research and social network of their peers in the field of software architecture.

***Women in Software Architecture***
Diversity in ICT teams has become an important parameter on which the success of projects depends. Indeed it has been demonstrated the importance of team mixing people of different gender, culture, religion and allocation of human resources in different countries, domains, etc to go beyond a unique model.  Diversity plays a key role to have success and be competitive and innovative in software development.Both women and men are invited to collaborate and attend to this track. Students, industry professionals, academics, and other leaders in computing are also welcome to promote networking and technical discussion to motivate the participation and visibility of women in the Software Architecture field.

***Posters, Tools, and Demos***
The 12th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2018) Posters, Tools, and Demos Track provides an opportunity for both practitioners and researchers to present and discuss the most recent advances, ideas, experiences, and challenges in the field of software architecture by means of posters and live tool/demo presentations.
Posters are intended to stimulate discussions among conference participants: reflections on the past, descriptions of current initiatives, visions of the future, and new results in software architecture research and practice are very welcome. During the conference, posters will be presented in the poster session (in A1 poster format, 594mm x 841mm).
Tools and demos are intended to address any aspect of tool support for software architects.

Accepted papers will appear in in the ECSA 2018 Companion Proceedings published by ACM Digital Library.

***1st Software Architecture Challenges in Big Data (SACBD)***
Software architecture is a critical cornerstone of the current complex software systems. This workshop aims at discuss on advanced solution for systems involving one or several of the following technological paradigms: big data, or big data integration with cloud computing / IOT / HPC / artificial intelligence. Industrial case studies including demonstrations and applied research experiences reports for novel contributions as well as visionary papers are welcome. Overall design and performance issues and challenges are expected to be addressed. Moreover, solutions to enforce both security, transparency and ethics by design are also expected.

***4th Sustainable Architecture: Global Collaboration, Requirements, Analysis (SAGRA)***
It is crucial for software systems to be cost-efficiently maintained and evolved over their entire life-cycle, i.e. to be sustainable, whereas the sustainability of the system is largely determined by the sustainability of its architecture. Low quality architectures slow the progress of software evolution and reduce profits. Designing a sustainable software architecture is a non-trivial task, especially in the case of large scale and/or long-living systems. The task becomes even more complicated when we take into account collaborative and intercultural aspects of the software development, requirements traceability and big data management. Practitioners require architecture metrics that support sustainable software architectures reflecting quality attributes such as maintainability, extensibility, reliability, integrity, etc.

***5th International Workshop on Measurability of Security in Software Architectures (MeSSA)***
Security measurement of software architectures is needed to produce sufficient evidence of security level as early as in the design phase. Design-time security measuring should support "security by design" approach. Moreover, software architectures have to support runtime security measurement to obtain up-to-date security information from an online software system, service or product. Security metrics and measurements are exploited in situational awareness monitoring and self-adaptive security solutions. The area of security metrics and security assurance metrics research is evolving, but still lacks widely accepted metrics definitions and applicable measuring techniques. Strong collaboration between security experts, software architects, and system developers is needed.
The workshop will provide a forum for dissemination, demonstration and discussion of original scientific and experimental results of security measurement topics.
