Call For Papers

18th Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures and Reuse (SBCARS 2024)

# Call for papers

The Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures, and Reuse (SBCARS) is promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and brings together researchers, students, and professionals with a wide range of interests in topics related to Software Engineering, including software product lines, component-based software development, software architecture, and software reuse. Started in 2007, SBCARS is the successor to the series of six Brazilian Workshops on Component-Based Development (WDBC), started in 2001, so its 17 editions already held have contributed to its consolidation in the national scientific calendar as an important technical-scientific event in the software area.

# Important Dates

- Paper registration (abstract submission): July 04, 2024
- Full paper submmission: July 11, 2024
- Acceptance notification: August 12, 2024
- Camera-ready: August 19, 2024
- Conference: From September 30 to October 04, 2024

# Topics of Interest

Submissions related (but not limited) to the following topics will be accepted:

- Agile software architecture and design
- AI-assisted software design and architecture (including LLM, generative AI and other similar models)
- API development and evolution
- Component-based software engineering
- Design patterns
- Domain analysis and engineering
- Generative programming and domain-specific languages
- Mining software repositories
- Model-driven engineering
- Open-source software reuse and variability
- Program repair
- Program transformation and refactoring
- Service orientation and microservices
- Software analysis, comprehension, and reconstruction
- Software architecture
- Software maintenance, reengineering and evolution
- Software metrics
- Software modularity
- Software product lines
- Software reuse (including technical and non-technical issues)
- Software sustainability
- Software visualization
- Variability management

Experimental studies (controlled experiments, case studies, systematic reviews), experience reports, theoretical contributions, articles related to education, tools, and methods related to all the above topics are also of interest.

# Submission Format

Submitted papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Papers written in Portuguese must be submitted with the title, abstract, and keywords written in English. English submissions are strongly encouraged, as the symposium proceedings will be indexed by the ACM Digital Library. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for CBSoft 2024 and present the paper at the symposium, otherwise the paper will not be included in the proceedings.

It is strongly recommended that authors check previously published papers in past editions of SBCARS to reference them as related works whenever applicable. This can motivate and enhance discussions among researchers working in the same area during the symposium. Papers published in previous editions of SBCARS are available at this link (

All submissions must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must conform to the ACM two-column format (ACM_SigConf) available at this link ( LaTeX users should use the acmart.cls class provided in the template, with the conference format enabled in the preamble of the document:


Additionally, the ACM-Reference-Format.bst bibliography style provided in the template should be used:


Papers should not exceed 10 pages, including figures, tables, and references. Submissions that do not comply with the required format or are outside the technical scope will be rejected without review. Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three reviewers based on their originality, relevance, technical quality, and clarity of presentation.

The SBCARS 2024 will employ a double-blind review process. Submitted papers should not reveal the authors' identities in any way.

- Authors must remove their names and affiliations from the body of their submission.
- Authors must ensure that any citation to their own related work is written in the third person, i.e., "the previous work of XYZ" instead of "our previous work."
- Authors should avoid providing URLs to sites that reveal the authorship of the paper (tools, datasets). The paper may mention the existence of these sites, but their consultation should not be necessary to conduct the review.
- Authors should anonymize the names of companies that reveal the authorship of the paper but may provide general characteristics of the organizations involved that are necessary for understanding the context of the paper.

Papers should be submitted electronically through the JEMS3 system ( When submitting the paper, authors should specify the language of their paper with a prefix in the paper's title field on the submission platform. The title of papers in English should begin with "[EN]" and the title of papers in Brazilian Portuguese should begin with "[PT]". This ensures that the paper is assigned to a reviewer who is capable of reviewing it.

# On use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) or AI-assisted technologies in research papers

When submitting to SBES 2024, the authors acknowledge that they comply with the Generative AI usage policy, based on existing policies proposed by IEEE, ACM, and Springer.

It is forbidden to:

- List Generative AI tools and technologies, such as ChatGPT, as authors of worksç
- Use texts or sections entirely produced by generative AI tools

It is allowed (with explicit disclosure in the acknowledgments) to:

- Use generative AI tools to create parts of the content, with disclosure in the paper acknowledgments indicating what was generated and which tool was used. It is important to check the terms of use of the tool, which is the responsibility of the authors. For example, in the acknowledgments: ChatGPT was used to generate the first paragraph of Section 3 and to generate Table 3.2.

It is allowed (no need to mention):

- Use AI or AI-assisted technologies to improve the quality of images in terms of contrast and clarity.
- Utilize generative AI tools to edit and improve the quality of your existing text (similar to an assistant like Grammarly to improve spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity, engagement).

# Best Paper Award

The SBCARS Steering Committee will designate a committee to award the best papers from SBCARS 2024. Awarded papers will be announced during CBSoft. The distinguished papers will be invited to submit an extended version, in English, to the Journal of Software Engineering Research and Development (JSERD). The committee reserves the right to choose up to 3 articles to compete for the award, as well as not to choose any article to receive the award.
