Call for Papers

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 2013 will be
the 12th 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 2013 is
co-located with the STAF 2013 Federated Conferences.

Topics of Interest

The SC 2013 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 http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sc2013

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 Submitted papers must be unpublished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.
