Notification deadline: April 12th, 2012.
Submission of camera ready version: May 1st, 2012.


In the frame of the CompArch 2012 conference, 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 may be given to
an outstanding paper accepted for WCOP and written by a PhD student.
The award includes a free registration to CompArch, the presentation
of the paper during the main CompArch program, and the publication of
an extended version of the paper, subject to a review, in the
proceedings of CBSE 2013 or QoSA 2013.


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 6 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 a proposal primarily aims at discussion than at 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.
