International Software Architecture PhD School (ISAPS 2017)

The International Software Architecture PhD School (ISAPS) is a four-day
intensive workshop that will provide young researchers and practicing
architects from industry the opportunity to learn from the leaders in
the field the most recent methods, tools, and theories produced by top
research groups around the world and in industrial environments.

For whom:
For young researchers and practicing software architects.

Tuesday June 6th, 2017 to Friday June 9th (full time)

The school is hosted by the Lorentz center on the campus of the
University of Leiden, in The Netherlands, a short 30 minutes west of
3rd Floor Oort Building, Niels Bohrweg 2, Leiden, Netherlands

School format:
The format combines lectures on cutting-edge software architecture
topics (mornings) with hands-on sessions on industrial cases (afternoons):
Day 1: The decision-making process in Software Architecture design.
Day 2: Software Architecture and continuous delivery - DevOps.
Day 3: The role of the software architect. Technical debt at the
architectural level and metrics.
Day 4: Empirical methods used in Software Architecture research.

Len Bass was a researcher at the SEI, then at the National ICT in
Australia. He is the co-author of the best selling book Software
architecture in Practice, and just published DevOps: A Software
Architect's Perspective.
Ipek Ozkaya is a principal researcher at the SEI, where she focuses on
software economics, software architecture, technical debt and software
Anthony Tang is associate professor at the Swinburne University in
melbourne; his interest is in software architectural design and design
Roel Wieringa is Professor of information systems at the University of
Twente, specialized in the integration of formal and informal
specification and design techniques.


Paris Avgeriou is professor of software engineering at the University of
Patricia Lago is professor of software engineering at the Vrije
Universiteit Amsterdam.
Philippe Kruchten is professor of software engineering at the University
of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.

At the Hotel Van der Valk, a few minute walk from the Lorentz Center.

Haagse Schouwweg 14, 2332 KG Leiden, Netherlands

For PhD students, costs are absorbed by donations from various companies
and organizations, such as SIKS. There may be the possibility of a
travel grant (depending on industrial sponsorship).

For questions about sponsoring, please contact Prof. Patricia Lago

The Lorentz Center
The Lorentz Center is a Dutch national center for international
workshops in all scientific disciplines. Its guiding philosophy is that
innovative research thrives on interaction between creative researchers.
Lorentz Center workshops focus on new collaborations and on interactions
in highly diverse groups of researchers – international and with
different scientific viewpoints as well as seniority, gender, and culture.
The Lorentz Center receives structural financial support by Leiden
University, and by the Dutch research councils Netherlands Organisation
for Scientific Research NWO, Foundation for Fundamental Research on
Matter FOM, and Technology Foundation STW.

In cooperation with SIKS (
