QUORS 2010 : Extended Deadline - The 4th IEEE International Workshop on QUALITY ORIENTED REUSE OF SOFTWARE
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Four IEEE International Workshop on
Quality Oriented Reuse of Software (QUORS’10)
A joint event with COMPSAC’2010
The 34rd Annual IEEE International Computer Software
and Applications Conference
Seoul,South Korea, July 19 - July 23, 2010
GOAL OF THE WORKSHOP:
Software reuse has been one of the most effective paradigms for building software systems and applications for decades. Recently, the rapid and fundamental advances in computing technologies have been driving the role and scope of software systems to new levels. A number of new types of software systems are emerging, among which service based systems, pervasive computing, cloud computing and Internet of Things are eminent examples. The advent of these emerging systems has raised the level of software reuse to services, large-scale components or agglomeration of components in more challenging context which is pervasive, service-oriented, embeded real-time, or in very large corporation scale. Systematic and large-scale reuse of reusable assets at multiple development levels is improving the efficiency of software development activities significantly in terms of cost and time.
However, previous research in software reuse mainly focused on the functional aspect of a system, tended to ignore or treat the quality aspects trivially, and did not address the new challenging features of the above emerging software systems. Modern computing models tend to be globally distributed, pervasive, and dynamically adaptive. These systems, such as SOA, pervasive computing and embedded systems, have imposed more rigorous quality requirements on software development technologies. It becomes a great challenge to meet the new requirements of emerging software systems and meanwhile enjoy the benefits of substantial software reuse.
Recently, the research community and industry have been aware of the above weakness and much work has been ongoing. In this workshop we wish to bring together researchers and practitioners to share research results, advances and practical experiences under the banner of “Quality Oriented Reuse of Software for Emerging Software Systems”. The workshop will act as a forum for active discussion, idea stimulation and communication.
THEME AND SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP:
The workshop will bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the methodology and technology of software reuse which emphasizes meeting strict quality requirements, such as dependability, agility and performance, particularly in the context of emerging types of software systems. The workshop seeks new approaches, system architectures and tools that facilitate the quality aspects of software reuse technologies.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Reuse in Service Oriented Systems (SOA);
* Service and service-based system engineering;
* Software for Internet of Things;
* Internet-based applications;
* Cloud computing;
* Aspect-oriented software reuse;
* High quality software reuse methods;
* Dependable Component-Based Systems;
* Software product lines;
* Quality aspects of design patterns;
* Software evolution;
* Software quality metrics and testing;
* Model-driven software engineering;
* Component and service repository;
* Quality-oriented COTS product reuse;
* Reuse in service and component based Enterprise Systems;
* Reuse in Embedded Software Systems;
* Resilient (adaptive)reuse;
* Agile methods and software reuse;
* Case studies and experience reports.
Researchers and practitioners in software reuse, software evolution, emerging software systems such as SOA, pervasive computing and embedded software, testing and quality assurance and all other relevant areas. The chairs expect to bring to the workshop researchers and practitioners worldwide from research institutes, universities and industries.

March 15 2010 Workshop paper submission due
April 5, 2010 Decision notification (electronic)
April 30, 2010 All final manuscript and author pre-registration due
Papers must be submitted electronically via the QUORS 2010 Submission Page (to be set up soon). Please follow the instructions posted on the web site. The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for IEEE conference proceedings, i.e., 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format (PDF, DOC); Layout Guide (PDF, DOC). The paper should not exceed 4000 words or 6 pages in IEEE paper format including all figures, tables, and references. Any problem, please contact the workshop chair firstname.lastname@example.org.
All papers will be reviewed by the program committee according to its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. We also encourage authors to present position papers on practical studies and experiments, critique of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development. Papers can be submitted as either regular papers, short papers, or fast abstracts. Acceptance and final category depends on reviewer feedback.
Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the 34th IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2010) by IEEE Computer Society Press, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index (Elsevier's Engineering Information Index), and automatically included in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper or fast abstract must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper or fast abstract published in the proceedings.
