In the frame of the CompArch 2011 conference, the Workshop on
Component Oriented Programming (WCOP) is organised as a Doctoral
Symposium for young researchers in the area of component based
software engineering, software architecture and software quality.
The doctoral symposium is aimed to give feedback from established
researchers to promising new ideas in the field of component based
software engineering, software architecture and software quality to
young researchers in all phases of their Phd career. Therefore we
intentionally encourage PhD students, young Post-Doc researchers, and
junior academics to submit their proposal statements with potentially
unfinished and not yet validated ideas.


Each year, the CompArch Young Investigator Award is given to the best
accepted paper of WCOP (written by a PhD student). The award includes
a free registration to CompArch, the presentation of the paper during
the main CompArch programme and the publication of the paper in the
proceedings of CBSE 2012 or QoSA 2012.


Areas of interest are component based software engineering, software
architecture and software quality in general. More specifically, this
   * software-services (as deployed components),
   * specification and analysis of quality of service properties,
   * predictable assembly of components / compositional reasoning,
   * component-oriented development processes,
   * traceability between architecture, components and code,
   * components as a means to implement architectures,
   * mobile and ubiquitous components for pervasive computer
   * security and privacy of component based architectures,
   * performance/efficiency and reliability of component-based systems,
   * specification and analysis of component-based architectures,
   * deployment attribution / constraints,
   * COP and Model-driven Development (MDA),
   * addressing variability requirements in component-based solutions,
   * system design for independent extensibility,
   * maintainability and evolution of component based systems,
   * component versus application evolution,
   * management of component based systems,
   * domain-specific (vertical) standards,
   * organizational and business aspects of components and software


Submitted research proposals should not be longer than 8 pages in
double column ACM format. The submitted research proposal should
address, motivation, idea, benefits and planned next steps as well as
related work and potential ideas of validation. It is well admitted,
if proposal primarily aims on discussion than on the presentation of
solutions. Papers are to be submitted via the EasyChair conference


Accepted proposals will be published in the ACM Digital Library. The
acceptance of a paper requires at least one author to register,
present and to participate during the discussions of the workshop.
