Software Composition 2008

7th International Symposium on Software Composition (SC2008)
29-30 March, 2008 - Budapest, Hungary

Submission Deadline: 1. November 2007


The goal of SC 2008 is to bring together the research and industrial communities
for addressing the challenges of component based software development. SC 2008
will be the seventh symposium on software composition in the series that seeks
to develop a better understanding of how composition of software components may
be used to build and maintain large software systems. Therefore, submissions
relating theory and practice of software composition are particularly welcome.

Topics of Interest

The SC 2008 program committee seeks original, high quality papers related to
Software Composition, such as but not limited to the following:

* Composition and adaptation techniques
* Composition languages, calculi and type systems
* Aspect-oriented programming
* Semantics-based composition and analysis of component systems
* Verification, validation and testing techniques
* Dynamic composition and reconfiguration
* Composition issues in industrial-strength component systems and frameworks
* Composition aspects of service-oriented architectures
* Software composition in pervasive computing environments
* Mashups - software composition for the Web
* Visual composition environments and tools
* Model-driven composition
* Business process orchestration
* Performance optimization of composite systems

Symposium Format and Proceedings

We solicit two categories of high-quality submissions on research results and/or
experience: long papers (12-16 pages, LNCS format, including bibliography and
figures) describing a technical contribution in depth and short papers (6-8 pages,
LNCS format) concisely capturing 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 Submitted papers must be unpublished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 symposium will be published as a
volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Authors of accepted
papers should provide all the electronic files of the final version of their
paper according to the instructions provided at Springer's LNCS home page
