Montreal, Canada, May 4 to May 8, 2015

CBSE is an ACM SIGSOFT ( event, part of the CompArch
federated conference series -- see at for more information.

The following deadlines must be intended by considering the UMT/GMT time zone.

Abstract submission deadline: December 14, 2015
Papers submission deadline: December 21, 2014

Component-based Software Engineering (CBSE) continues to attract interest and
evolve as a discipline for the rapid assembly of flexible software systems.
CBSE combines elements of software requirements engineering, architecture,
design, verification, testing, configuration and deployment. The CBSE
symposium has an established track record of bringing together researchers and
practitioners from a variety of disciplines to promote a better understanding
of CBSE from diverse perspectives, and to engage in active discussion and
debate. CBSE 2015 is open to all participants from universities and industry
interested in CBSE and related areas.

The CBSE symposium has emerged as the flagship research event for the
component community. CBSE 2015 encompasses research (both theoretical and
applied) that extends the state-of-the-art in component specification,
composition, analysis, testing, and verification. Experience reports,
empirical studies and presentation of component-based benchmarks and case
studies are also within scope. Participants from industry and academia have
the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences in a variety of sessions
involving invited and technical presentations, posters, and panels.

New trends in global services, distributed and cloud-based systems
architectures, dynamically adaptable systems, and large-scale software systems
often cross organizational boundaries and push the limits of established
component-based methods, tools and platforms. Innovative solutions from
diverse paradigms (e.g., service-, aspect-, and agent-oriented) are needed to
address these emerging trends.

Topics of interest for CBSE 2013 therefore include, but are not limited to, the

* Specification, architecture, and design of component models and component-based systems
* Software quality assurance for component-based engineering
* Verification, testing and certification of component-based systems
* Component composition, binding, and dynamic adaptation
* Formal methods for automated component composition and integration
* Component-based engineering with agents, aspects, or services
* Component-based product line engineering
* Non-functional properties (quality of service attributes) in component-based engineering
* Patterns and frameworks for component-based engineering
* Tools and methods for component-based engineering
* Industrial experience using component-based software development
* Empirical studies in component-based software engineering
* Teaching component-based software engineering
* Migration to and evolution of component-based software systems

SPECIAL THEME: Components for physical services
Software systems increasingly control processes which reside outside
traditional computing devices. These processes are constrained by physical
laws. Examples of such systems are smart grids to control energy distribution,
autonomous vehicles which drive without driver interaction and coordinate with
other cars to avoid traffic jams, or robot fleets which are deployed in search
and rescue missions. All these systems became only feasible because of their
software parts which relieve humans from interactions. However, such systems
are also often mission or safety critical and hence have to comply to strict
quality requirements. Component-based software development allows to keep the
increased complexity and analysability due to the interaction with the
physical world in manageable ranges due to encapsulation and strict interface
focus. Such encapsulation allows to verify the properties of single components
and then reason on the properties of their composition independently.


Papers will be evaluated by at least three members of the Program Committee.
They should be in ACM format (
and describe, in English, original work that has not been published or
submitted elsewhere. PDF versions of papers should be submitted through the
CBSE 2015 EasyChair web site:

We solicit two categories of papers:

* Regular papers, not exceeding 10 pages (including appendices), describing
fully developed work. Authors of papers reporting experimental work are
strongly encouraged to make their experimental results available for use by
reviewers. Similarly, case study papers should describe significant case
studies and the complete development should be made available for use by
* Short papers of a maximum of 6 pages should describe novel ideas that have
not been fully evaluated, or operational tools and their contributions. Tool
papers should explain enhancements made compared to previously published
work. Authors of tools papers should make their tool available for use by

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM digital library. A paper must be
personally presented at the CBSE 2015 conference by one of the authors in
order to appear in the proceedings. The best contribution of the conference
will receive the ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award, given by the ACM
Special Interest Group on Software Engineering.

The following deadlines must be intended by considering the UMT/GMT time zone.
