***PAPER SUBMISSIONS***
For the research track, ECSA 2018 encourages submission of papers describing basic and applied research, novel applications and experience papers on all topics related to software architectures. ECSA 2018 seeks four types of papers for the research track:

- Research papers (max. 16 pages) which describe novel contributions to software architecture research (submissions should cover work that has a sound scientific/technological basis and has been validated)

- Industrial papers (max. 16 pages) which describe lessons learned, best practices from enterprise-scale industry projects and significant experiences gained from deploying or traying a particular method, approach, or tool related to any topic of software architecture.

- Education and training papers (max. 16 pages in LNCS style) that address experiences and best practices in teaching and training of software architecture.

- Short papers (max. 8 pages) that present promising preliminary results from work-in-progress or challenges in a topic of software architecture research or education and training software architectures (submissions should cover work that has a sound basis, but perhaps has not been validated in full).

All contributions must be formatted according the Springer LNCS style (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).
Contributions should be submitted using the online submission site (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecsa2018).
The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
