International Symposium on Software Composition

Software Composition 2012, May 28 - June 1, 2012, Prague, Czech Republic

11th International Conference on Software Composition (SC 2012) 

May 28 - June 1, 2012, Prague, Czech Republic 

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 2012 will be 
the 11th 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 2012 is 
co-located with TOOLS 2012 Federated Conferences. 


The SC 2012 program committee seeks original, high-quality papers related to 
software composition, including 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. 

Please submit papers via 

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 Submitted papers must be unpublished 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.
