Call for Papers

Workshop on Advanced Software Composition and Decomposition provides a space to discuss advanced approaches to software composition and decomposition (modularity) often classified as aspect-oriented software development. Despite these approaches are often seen as a solution to the problem of crosscutting concerns, they are of much wider applicability and may serve in achieving an advanced, flexible separation of concerns in general.

This is actually how aspect-orientation has been perceived from its start—recognized also in composition filters, subject-oriented programming, or adaptive programming as its integral parts—before it got narrowed in its practical application driven by the need for an immediate working solution.

The workshop solicits submissions that target advanced approaches to software composition and decomposition. This includes their application throughout the software development lifecycle in general and in various areas such as component-based systems, information systems, databases, middleware, conceptual modeling, business process modeling, distributed systems, service-oriented systems, etc., as well as their evaluation. Among specific approaches, role modeling and the Data–Context–Interaction (DCI) architecture are particularly interesting. Exploring common backgrounds of advanced composition and decomposition approaches deserves attention, too.

Submissions are expected to provoke a discussion that will go beyond the ideas directly presented in the workshop with an outlook to be published in a joint paper.

Papers should not exceed 10 pages in Springer LNCS format (using LaTeX or Word template). Accepted papers will be published in proceedings (with ISBN) distributed at the ADBIS 2010 conference and will be made available online. A selection of outstanding papers may be invited for publication in an internationally recognized journal (subject to additional reviewing).

Papers should be original contributions not submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere. For an accepted paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one author must register and attend the conference.

Important dates:

  • June 20, 2010: paper submission
  • July 15, 2010: notification of acceptance
  • July 30, 2010: final paper submission
  • September 20–24, 2010: workshop (one-day workshop; exact day TBA)
