International Symposium on Software Composition

Software Composition 2011, Zurich, Switzerland - 30 June - 1 July 2011

The International Conference on Software Composition (SC) is the leading venue
that addresses challenges of how composition of software parts may be used to
build and maintain large software systems. Software Composition 2011 will be
the tenth edition in the series, and we invite researchers and practitioners to
submit high-quality papers. Submissions that relate theory and practice of
software composition are particularly welcome. Software Composition 2011 is
co-located with TOOLS 2011 Federated Conferences.


TOPICS OF INTEREST

The SC 2011 program committee seeks original, high-quality papers related to
software composition, such as but not limited to the following topics:

- Component-based software engineering
- Composition and adaptation techniques
- Composition algebras, calculi and type systems
- Feature-oriented software development
- Aspect-oriented software development
- Model-driven composition
- Models of computation
- Verification, validation and testing
- Dynamic composition and reconfiguration
- Large-scale component-based systems
- Cloud, service-oriented architectures
- Business process orchestration
- Visual composition environments
- Performance optimization of composite systems

We solicit high-quality submissions on research results and/or experience
(up to 16 pages, LNCS format, including bibliography and figures) describing
a technical contribution in depth. Short and position papers are also 
welcome for the work in progress session (up to 8 pages, LNCS format, including
bibliography and figures). Short submissions must concisely capture ongoing
work, new ideas, and experiences.

Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance,
correctness, originality, and clarity. Submitted papers must be unpublished
and not submitted for publication elsewhere. As in previous years, the
proceedings of the conference will be published as a volume in Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
