Call for Papers QoSA 2009: Architectures for Adaptive Software Systems

The goal of QoSA (Quality of Software Architectures) is to address
aspects of software architecture focusing broadly on quality
characteristics and how these relate to the design of software
architectures. Specific issues of interest are defining quality
measures, evaluating and managing architecture quality, linking
architecture to requirements and implementation, and preserving
architecture quality throughout the lifetime of the system.

This year, the main topic of QoSA is architectures for adaptive software
systems. Modern software systems must often reconfigure their structure
and behavior to respond to continuous changes in requirements and in
their execution environment. In this setting, quality models are helpful
at the architectural level to guide systematic model-driven software
development strategies by evaluating the impact of alternative
architectural choices and the implied trade-offs. At run time, quality
models can play an important role to enable calibration and validation
of a system model in order to accurately reflect the properties of the
executing system. This leads to the idea that models should continue to
exist at run time to drive the necessary dynamic changes that realize
self-adaptation. Technical reports both on scientific novel results and
industrial case studies are welcome.
Conference Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Architecture Design and Implementation:

* design decisions and their influence on the quality of software
* architectural patterns and their quality impacts
* architectural standards and reference architectures
* model-driven architecture (MDA) and quality aspects
* relationship between quality attributes and architectural design

Architecture Evaluation:

* lessons learned and empirical validation of theories and
frameworks on architecture quality
* empirical validation of testing, prototyping, simulation for
assessing architecture quality
* models and specification techniques to evaluate quality
* attributes of software architectures
* languages for architectural modeling that allow the evaluation of
quality characteristics
* processes for evaluating architecture quality
* evaluating the effects of architectural adaptations at run-time

Architecture Management:

* coordination of business architecture, business processes, and
software architecture
* assessment and enforcement of architectural conformance,
especially in the face of run-time adaptation
* traceability of software architecture to requirements and
* integration of heterogeneous software architectures
* architecture evolution and architecture governance
* architectural models at run-time

Application Domains:

* component-based and service-oriented systems
* software product-lines
* pervasive and autonomic systems

Manuscript guidelines and publication
