10th Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures, and Reuse (SBCARS 2016)

Maringá, Paraná, Brazil
September 19-23, 2016

Paper registration/abstract submission: Jun 24, 2016
Paper submission: Jul 1, 2016
Author notification: Aug 1, 2016
Camera-ready version: Aug 8, 2016
Conference: Sep 19-23, 2016

The Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures, and Reuse (SBCARS) is promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and attracts researchers, students, and practitioners interested in a broad range of software engineering topics, including software product lines, component-based development, architectures, and reuse. Previous editions of the symposium offered a strong technical program, keynote talks by leaders in the field, and tutorials regarding state-of-art topics. SBCARS 2016 intends to continue this tradition.

In this context, we are looking for high-quality submissions for SBCARS 2016, and invites authors to contribute with technical papers related (but not limited) to the following themes:

- Agile software architecture and design
- Aspect-oriented software development and software modularity
- Component-based software engineering
- Design patterns
- Domain analysis and engineering
- Generative programming and domain-specific languages
- Mining software repositories
- Model-driven engineering
- Program transformation and refactoring
- Reuse and variability in Open Source Software
- Service-oriented architectures (SOA) and service-based development
- Software analysis, comprehension, and reconstruction
- Software architecture (architecture recovery, architecture description languages, architecture evaluation, reverse architecting, etc.)
- Software evolution
- Software metrics
- Software product lines
- Software reuse (including technical and non-technical issues)
- Variability management

We are also interested in experimental studies (controlled experiments, case studies, systematic reviews), experience reports, theoretical contributions, education-related papers, tools, and methods related to all of the above topics.

SBCARS 2016 is a part of the 7th Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice (CBSoft 2016), which will also host three other Brazilian symposia:

30th Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES 2016)
20th Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages (SBLP 2016)
1st Brazilian Symposium on Systematic and Automated Testing (SAST 2016)

CBSoft and SBCARS 2016 will take place in Maringá, in the state of Paraná, Brazil. With planned and modernist urban design, Maringá currently has 380,000 inhabitants. The city takes its name from a song by Joubert de Carvalho in honor of his great love, Maria do Ingá, thus the city is known as the Song City. The city is situated in the southern Brazilian and crossed by the Tropic of Capricorn. All year you can see their tree-lined streets that produce fresh air, but especially during spring, many trees burst into flower. Maringá is considered one of the greenest cities in the world, with 90 acres of native forest on 17 preserved area found within its urban boundaries.

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 submitted to IEEE Xplore, CSDL, and other indexing services. Papers submitted to SBCARS 2016 must not have been simultaneously submitted to any other forum (conference or journal), nor should they have already been published elsewhere. At least 1 author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper in person during the event or the paper will not be included in the proceedings.

It is strongly encouraged that authors check papers from previous editions of SBCARS in order to reference related work whenever it is applicable. This might motivate and improve discussions between researchers working in the same area during the symposium. SBCARS' papers published in previous editions are available at the following URLs:

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 Conference Publishing Services (CPS)'s two-column conference format.

Templates can be found at:
(Please use only A4 page size format)

Papers should be submitted electronically through EasyChair at

SBCARS organizers will award the Best Papers prize of the symposium, which will be announced during the event. The authors of the best paper will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of a journal.
