Research Papers


Papers should describe original and significant work on the research and practice of software and system architectures. Papers are limited to 10 proceedings pages, at most 8000 words. Papers must not have been previously published nor have been submitted to, or be in consideration for, any journal, book, or other conference. All papers should explicitly state the goals of systems or approaches described, discuss relationships to previous work and should use accepted, standard terminology. Submissions especially are invited for experience reports: for example, best and worst experiences of applying software architecture research results, required adaptations to make it work in industry, research gaps which should be filled in, etc. Please use the pdf format for your documents. Asian authors, please do not use asian fonts as these may prevent us from printing your document. The pdf format is the least likely to give us any problems when we try to print it. Templates for formatting your document can be found here.
