The European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA) is the premier
European software architecture conference, providing researchers,
practitioners, and educators with a platform to present and discuss the
most recent, innovative and significant findings and experiences in the
field of software architecture research and practice. The ECSA 2017 will be
held on 11-15 September, 2017 at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK.

The program committee of ECSA 2017 seeks submissions of papers describing
basic and applied research, novel applications and experience reports on
all topics related to software architectures including, but not limited to:
- Foundational principles of software architecture
- Linking requirements engineering and software architectures
- Quality attributes and software architectures
- Architectural design, analysis and evaluation
- Architecture description languages and meta-models
- Architecture verification and validation
- Management of architectural knowledge, decisions, and rationale
- Cross disciplinary efforts and software architecture
- Architectural patterns, styles and tactics, reference architectures
- Architecture viewpoints and views
- Architecture conformance
- Architecture-based synthesis, code generation
- Architecture transformation and refinement
- Architecture refactoring and reengineering, reverse engineering
- Architecture-based evolution
- Architectures for reconfigurable and self-adaptive systems
- Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Web services,
- Architectures for ultra-large scale, long-lived systems and
- Software architecture and the cloud
- Software architecture and big data
- Software architecture and virtualization
- Architectures for cyber-physical systems
- Architectural concerns of autonomic systems
- Architecture-centric process models and frameworks
- Software architecture and agility
- Architecture-centric model driven engineering
- Component-based models and deployment, middleware
- Software architecture and system architecture, including software-defined
- Software tools and environments for architecture-centric software
- Industrial applications, case studies, best practices and experience
- Empirical studies, systematic literature reviews and mapping studies in
software architecture.

ECSA 2017 seeks three types of submissions to foster the active
participation of researchers and practitioners:

- Full research papers and Experience papers (max. 16 pages in LNCS style)
that describe novel contributions to software architecture research
(submissions should cover work that has a sound scientific/technological
basis and has been validated).

- Short papers (max. 8 pages in LNCS style) that present promising
preliminary results from work-in-progress or research challenges in a topic
of software architecture research (submissions should cover work that has a
sound basis, but perhaps has not been validated in full).

- Education and Training papers (max. 12 pages in LNCS style) that address
challenges and best practices in in teaching and training of software
architecture, such as methods, project management, and academia-industry

All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous peer review process, and be
selected based on originality, quality, soundness and relevance. All
accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by
Springer-Verlag as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series. In addition, authors of best papers will be invited to submit
extended versions of their papers to a special issue in the Journal of
Systems and Software.

All contributions must be formatted according the Springer LNCS style:

Contributions should be submitted using the online submission site
