Call For Papers

Modern software-intensive systems are often distributed, developed independently by several parties and evolve in many releases and iterations. New development often is built on a top of the existing solutions – many parts are reused either internally, or externally, or adopted for new functionality. This increases the importance of decisions whether and which parts of a new system, or a new version of it, will be reused, replaced, adopted or developed from scratch.

The overall goal of the SAADM workshop is to advance the knowledge about how to make decisions involving Software Architecture and Software Assets (e.g. components) for software-intensive systems. Developing software-intensive systems requires many decisions on strategic, tactical and operational levels. The strategic decisions have a long-term impact, e.g. the decision to use OSS components for the next product generations. The tactical level decisions help to implement the strategic decisions, e.g. which open source community to join for the next product generations and which components to reuse compared to develop in-house. The operational level decisions are related to running the daily business, e.g. how to actually integrate the chosen open source components into the present architecture. Understanding the implications of selecting different component types (e.g. in-house development, open source, COTS, services or subcontracting) on the architecture quality aspects (e.g. extensibility, performance, maintainability) and further on the product’s cost, time-to-market and positioning against competitors is one of the focal points of the SAADM workshop.

The topics of the workshop, include the following, but are not limited only to them:
• Management of architectural knowledge, decisions, and rationale
• Architectures for ultra-large scale, long-lived systems and systems-of-systems, their decision making processes
• Decision making for cyber-physical system architectures
• Architecture-centric process models and frameworks that impact decision making
• Dynamic integration of heterogeneous platforms and associated decision making challenges
• Software tools and environments for architecture-centric software engineering
• Industrial applications, case studies, best practices and experience reports
• Empirical studies, systematic literature reviews and mapping studies in software architecture decision making.
• Architectures for flexible integration of heterogeneous components
The SAADM workshop welcomes submissions of the following three types:
Full research papers (max. 7 pages) that describe novel contributions to supporting software architecture asset decision making research (submissions should cover work that has a sound scientific/technological basis and has been validated).
Experience papers (max. 7 pages) that describe experiences from software asset decision making practice (submissions should clearly focus on presenting experiences and lessons learns and outlining the industrial context).
Short papers (max. 4 pages) that present promising preliminary results from work-in-progress or research challenges in a topic of software architecture asset decision making research (submissions should cover work that has a sound basis, but perhaps has not been validated in full).

The submissions are welcome using the following EasyChair link:
