Call for Papers:

High quality software is not an accident; it is constructed via a systematic plan that demands familiarity with analytical techniques, architectural design methodologies, implementation polices, and testing techniques. Software architecture plays an important role in the development of today’s complex software systems. Furthermore, our ability to model and reason about the architectural properties of a system built from existing components is of great concern to modern system developers.

Performance, scalability and suitability to specific domains raise the challenging efforts for gathering special requirements, capture temporal constraints, and implement service-oriented requirements.  The complexity of the systems requires an early stage adoption of advanced paradigms for adaptive and self-adaptive features.

The International Workshop on Software Architecture Research and Practice, SARP’07, brings together practitioners and researchers for discussion and work on the emerging aspects pertaining to software architecture, industrial cases, and lessons learnt.

TOPICS OF SPECIAL INTEREST (but not limited to):

  • Distributed software architecture
  • Architectural styles and patterns
  • Architecture refinement and transformation
  • Software architecture and pervasive systems
  • Software architecture analysis & testing
  • Architectural description languages (ADLs)
  • Component-based software architecture
  • Dynamic software architecture
  • Self-repairing software architecture
  • Adaptive software architecture
  • Aspect-oriented software architecture
  • Service-oriented architecture [SOA]
  • Domain specific software architecture [DSSA]
  • Tools/Environments for software architects
  • Product-line software architecture
  • Industrial case studies and reports

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE AUTHORS

The SARP 2007 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, posted on IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and indexed with major indexes.

Important deadlines:

Submission deadline March 4, 2007
Notification April 7, 2007
Registration and camera ready April 20, 2007

Regular papers

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received papers will be acknowledged via the EDAS system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11" (two columns IEEE format), not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page.

Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be provided by the IEEE CS Press an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations

The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the conference’s CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send your presentations to petre@iaria.org or reza@cs.und.edu.

Tutorials

Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals can be for half or full day tutorials. Please send your proposals to reza@cs.und.edu.

Panel proposals

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies. Please send your proposals to reza@cs.und.edu.
