SBCARS 2011: Call for Papers

5th Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures and Reuse

Supported by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC)

São Paulo - SP, Brazil
September 26-27, 2011


The Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures and Reuse (SBCARS) gathers researchers, students and practitioners with a broad range of interests in Component-Based Software Engineering, Software Architectures and Reuse. SBCARS's previous editions were highlighted by the presentation of high quality technical papers, international invited speakers, and tutorials.

SBCARS 2011 intends to continue this tradition by offering a strong technical program, keynote talks by leaders in the field, and invited state-of-art presentations.

The last editions of SBCARS have also attracted various contributions of widely-recognized researchers in the area, such as David Weiss, Dirk Muthig, Paul Clements, Len Bass, Nenad Medvidovic, just to name a few.

In this context, this CFP is seeking high-quality submissions for SBCARS 2011, and invites authors to contribute with technical papers related (but not limited) to:

  • Case studies and experience reports
  • Experimental Studies
  • Component-based software engineering
  • Specification, verification, and test of components
  • Evolution on component-based systems
  • Certification and quality of components
  • Architecture Recovery
  • Architecture Description Languages
  • Service-Oriented Architectures
  • Software Architecture Evaluation
  • Software Product Lines: variability management, requirements, design, implementation, testing, evolution, product derivation
  • Dynamic Software Product Lines
  • Service-Oriented Product Lines
  • Software Reuse: technical and non-technical issues
  • Model-driven Development
  • Generative programming and Domain-Specific Languages
  • Tool support for software components, architectures, and reuse

Paper Submission

Submitted papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Submission in English is strongly encouraged since the symposium proceedings are made available at the IEEE Digital Library. Papers submitted to SBCARS must not have been simultaneously submitted to any other forum (conference or journal), nor should they have already been published elsewhere. The acceptance of a paper implies that at least one of its authors will register for the symposium to present it.

Submitted papers will be reviewed at least by three referees, based on its originality, relevance, technical soundness and clarity of presentation.

They must be no longer than 10 pages, including all the figures and references. All submissions must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must follow the IEEE 2-column conference format available at:

Papers should be submitted electronically through JEMS system.

To be submitted along with the camera ready version: copyright assignment term.
