Supported by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC)

Natal - RN - Brazil
September 24-25, 2012

The Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures and Reuse (SBCARS) is a Brazilian symposium promoted by SBC that gathers researchers, students and practitioners with a broad range of interests in Software Engineering related to component-based development, architectures and reuse. SBCARS's previous editions were highlighted by the presentation of high quality technical papers, international invited speakers, and tutorials.

SBCARS 2012 intends to continue this tradition by offering a strong technical program, keynote talks by leaders in the field, and invited state-of-art presentations.

The last editions of SBCARS have also attracted various contributions of widely-recognized researchers in the area, such as David Weiss, Dirk Muthig, Paul Clements, Len Bass, Nenad Medvidovic, Klaus Schmid, just to name a few.

In this context, this CFP is looking for high-quality submissions for SBCARS 2012, and invites authors to contribute with technical papers related (but not limited) to the following themes:

- Component-based Software Engineering: specification, verification, testing, evolution, certification, and quality, of components of component-based systems
- Software Architecture: architecture recovery; architecture description languages; software architecture evaluation; service-oriented architectures
- Software Reuse: technical and non-technical issues
- Software Product Lines, Dynamic PL, Service-Oriented PL
- Model-driven Development
- Service-based Development
- Aspect-based Development
- Design Patterns
- Software Modularity
- Variability Management
- Generative Programming and Domain-Specific Languages
- Tool support for software components, architectures, and reuse
- Case studies and experience reports related to software components, architectures, and reuse
- Experimental Studies related to software components, architectures, and reuse


SBCARS 2012 is an event part of the 3rd Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice (CBSoft 2012), – which will also host three other well-established Brazilian symposia:

- 26th Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES 2012)
- 16th Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages (SBLP 2012)
- 15th Brazilian Symposium on Formal Methods (SBMF 2012)

CBSoft 2012, as well as SBCARS 2012, will take place in Natal-RN, Brazil. Natal is the Americas’ entrance spot, the closest one to Europe and Africa, a modern and joyful city, born between its rivers and the sea, adorned by dunes and lots of green trees. A land of colors and flavors where one can find pleasure and adventure. It is summer here all year long, on a littoral of wonderful beaches, lagoons, semi-arid backland, cuisine, rides, art and culture that was never seen before, all allied to its people’s natural hospitality.


Submitted papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Submissions in English are strongly encouraged since the symposium proceedings will be made available at the IEEE Digital Library. Papers submitted to SBCARS 2012 must not have been simultaneously submitted to any other forum (conference or journal), nor should they have already been published elsewhere. The acceptance of a paper implies that at least one of its authors will register for the event to present it.

Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three referees, based on its originality, relevance, technical soundness and clarity of presentation.

Papers must be no longer than 10 pages, including figures, tables and references. Submissions must be sent in the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) format and must follow the IEEE two-column conference format, with unnumbered pages, whose example is available at: Templates can be found at: (Use only A4 page size format).

Papers should be submitted electronically through JEMS system at SBC (


The Steering Committee of SBCARS 2012 will award the best paper of the symposium. And the best papers of SBCARS 2012, after revision and extension, will be submitted to a Special Issue of J.UCS journal (
