Call For Papers

--------------- IWSSA 2011 - Deadline Extension-----------------------


20-21th June, 2011, London, England

(pre-conference workshop of CAiSE 2011)


Diverse interacting information and software systems are needed by cities
conducting large-scale events such as the Olympics, Worldcup Football, and
the like. Some of these systems monitor and control
utilities required for hosting the events including electricity, water
supply, gas supply, and the like, while others are used to monitor and
control systems with wider geographic spread such as air traffic, sea and
river traffic, and highway transportation systems. However, all these
systems must be designed to operate collaboratively so that event
organizers receive latest scenarios of the environment of the games and
take appropriate actions which may include change of venue,
postponement, or even cancellation of events. This is particularly
relevant in view of threats to life and society in modern times.
However, diverse information systems that monitor and control critical
infrastructures do not collaborate by accident:
collaboration, interoperability, reliability, and security need to be
designed into such systems. Since architecture development is usually the
first step in system or software design, designers need to address these
non-functional requirements, which are sometimes conflicting or
synergistic, in the architectures themselves. In particular,
non-functional and development requirements, and constraints take
special relevance due to the new environments in which the systems
themselves have to operate, i.e., some kind of combination of internet and
pervasive systems. In this workshop, contributions addressing the explicit
connection between requirements and architecture models through
innovative techniques, methodologies and processes will be presented and


The topics, with special emphasis on architectures satisfying
requirements in specific domains, include but are not limited to:

• architecting critical systems for diversity and collaborative
• roles of enterprise/system architectures
• requirements and software architectures for specific application
domains and case studies, especially, complex systems that use
technology in organizational and social contexts
• architectural models in model-driven approaches
• traceability of requirements in architectures
• engineering quality in architectures to include non-functional
requirements such as security, interoperability, adaptability,
responsiveness, ubiquity, reliability, dependability, self-healing
ability, performance, usability, safety, etc.
• methodologies and techniques applied to the construction of
high-quality system/software architectures
• models and design theories for software architectures
• software architecture maintenance, evolution and management
• validation of requirements and verification techniques of properties
in architectural design
• metrics and architectures
• service-oriented / object-oriented / aspect-oriented / goal-oriented /
agent-oriented / scenario-based approaches to enterprise/software
architecture development
• COTS / GOTS / Component / Middleware-Based development for
• Ontology Driven Architectures



Papers should explore open research problems, as well as provide
advances in the areas of architectures, requirements and development.
Papers submitted to IWSSA’11 must not have been accepted for publication
elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All
papers will be peer-reviewed by the PC members. Two types of papers in
English are invited from academia and industry:

• Short paper: maximum 6 pages (according to workshop instructions) for
position paper or work-in-progress
• Full paper: maximum 12 pages (according to workshop instructions) for
research results or experience

Accepted papers will be published in a LNBIP Proceedings Volume by
Springer Verlag. Failure to commit to presentation at the conference
automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings. Camera Ready papers
must comply with the Springer formatting rules. Further authoring
instructions are available at:

After each workshop edition, IWSSA chairs have edited a special issue in a
Software Engineering journal with significantly improved and extended
versions of papers accepted. Previous special issues related to IWSSA have
been published in the Journal of Science of Computer Programming (four
special issues), the Journal of Systems Architecture, Computer Standards&
Interfaces and the Journal of Systems and Software.

This time again, authors of selected quality papers, from those
presented at IWSSA'11, will be invited to submit significantly extended
versions to the review process for a special issue of an International
Journal, agreement in course with the journal publisher.



Paper Submission Deadline: 23th of February, 2011 (Extended)
Acceptance Notification: 16th of March, 2011
Camera Ready Due: 23rd March, 2011
IWSSA workshop: 20th – 21th June 2011
