Topics

For the research track, the organizing committee of ECSA 2014 seeks submissions of papers describing basic and applied research, novel applications and experience reports (in addition to research challenges) on all topics related to software architectures including, but not limited to:

  • requirements engineering and software architectures,

  • quality attributes and software architectures,

  • architecture reengineering, recovery,

  • architecture conformance, run-time monitoring,

  • aspect-oriented software architectures,

  • Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA),

  • Web services: composition, orchestration, choreography,

  • architecture-based solutions for evolving software intensive systems,

  • architectures for ultra-large and long-lived systems,

  • ontology-based approaches for component and architecture description,

  • process and management of architectural decisions,

  • process models and frameworks for architecture-centric software engineering,

  • ¬†architecture-centric model driven engineering,

  • architectural features of Model Driven Architecture (MDA),

  • software tools and environments for architecture-centric software engineering,

  • architectural concerns of autonomic systems,

  • component-based models, middleware, component-based deployment,

  • technology of components and component-based frameworks,

  • industrial applications, case studies, best practices and experience reports,

  • architecture description languages and metamodels,

  • architectural models, patterns and styles,

  • architecture analysis, validation and verification,

  • architecture transformation and refinement,
