The Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures and
Reuse (SBCARS) is a symposium promoted by Brazilian Computer Society
(SBC) that gathers researchers, students and practitioners with a
broad range of interests in software engineering related to
component-based development, architectures and reuse. Previous
editions of the symposium were highlighted by the presentation of high
quality technical papers, international invited speakers, and
tutorials. SBCARS 2013 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 Flavio Oquendo,
David Weiss, Dirk Muthig, Paul Clements, Len Bass, Nenad Medvidovic,
Klaus Schmid, Charles Krueger, Patrick Hung, Heiko Ludwig, Jaejoon
Lee, just to mention a few.

In this context, this CFP is looking for high-quality submissions for
SBCARS 2013, 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 SPLs, service-oriented SPLs
- Model-driven Engineering
- Service-based Development
- Aspect-Oriented Software Development
- Design Patterns
- Software Modularity
- Variability Management
- Generative Programming and Domain-Specific Languages
- Tool support for software components, architectures, and reuse
- Experimental Studies (controlled experiments, case studies,
systematic reviews) related to software components, architectures, and
- Experience reports related to software components, architectures, and reuse


SBCARS 2013 is an event part of the 4th Brazilian Conference on
Software: Theory and Practice (CBSoft 2013), which will also host
three other well-established Brazilian symposia:

- 27th Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES 2013)

- 17th Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages (SBLP 2013)

- 16th Brazilian Symposium on Formal Methods (SBMF 2013)

CBSoft and SBCARS 2013 will take place in Brasília, a UNESCO world
heritage for its world-wide symbol of modern architecture. As a venue
for political events, music performances and movie festivals, Brasília
is a cosmopolitan city, with around 119 embassies, a wide range of
restaurants and complete infrastructure ready to host any kind of
event. Brasília is strategically located in the center of Brazil and
its international airport, the third busiest Brazilian airport, serves
the metropolitan area with major domestic and international flights.
Brasília is also considered one of the main sites of Brazilian
ecotourism for its cerrado (Brazilian tropical savanna) hosting one of
the major National parks very close to its administrative center. In
the surroundings of Brasília, great waterfalls and a breathtaking
landscapes are at easy access, including Chapada dos Veadeiros
(Veadeiros Plateau) and Pirenópolis, with more than twenty spectacular
waterfalls with pristine water.


Submitted papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Papers
written in Portuguese need to be submitted with the title, abstract
and keywords written in English. Submissions in English are strongly
encouraged since the symposium proceedings will be made available at
the IEEE Digital Library. Papers submitted to SBCARS 2013 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.

It is strongly encouraged that authors read papers from previous
editions of SBCARS in order to reference related research work
published in the symposium, whenever it is applicable. This will
motivate and can improve discussions between researchers working in
the same area during the symposium. The SBCARS papers published in
previous editions are available at the following URL:


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

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

Templates can be found at:
(Use only Letter page size format).

Papers should be submitted electronically through JEMS system at SBC.


The SBCARS 2013 steering committee will award the best papers of the
symposium. Following the tradition of previous symposium editions,
these papers will be invited to be extended and submitted to a special
issue of Journal of Universal Computer Science (JUCS). Additional
details can be found at the following site:
