In the frame of the CompArch 2012 conference, WCOP is organised as a Doctoral Symposium for young researchers in the area of component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality. The doctoral symposium is aimed to give feedback from established researchers to promising new ideas in the field of component-based software engineering, software architecture and software quality to young researchers in all phases of their Phd career. Therefore we intentionally encourage PhD students, young Post-Doc researchers, and junior academics to submit their proposal statements with potentially unfinished and not yet validated ideas.
Each year, the CompArch Young Investigator Award may be given to an outstanding paper accepted for WCOP and written by a PhD student. The award includes a free registration to CompArch, the presentation of the paper during the main CompArch program, and the publication of an extended version of the paper, subject to a review, in the proceedings of CBSE 2013 or QoSA 2013.
Areas of interest are component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality in general. More specifically, this includes: * software-services (as deployed components), * specification and analysis of quality of service properties, * predictable assembly of components / compositional reasoning, * component-oriented development processes, * traceability between architecture, components and code, * components as a means to implement architectures, * mobile and ubiquitous components for pervasive computer applications, * security and privacy of component based architectures, * performance/efficiency and reliability of component-based systems, * specification and analysis of component-based architectures, * deployment attribution / constraints, * COP and Model-driven Development (MDA), * addressing variability requirements in component-based solutions, * system design for independent extensibility, * maintainability and evolution of component based systems, * component versus application evolution, * management of component based systems, * domain-specific (vertical) standards, * organizational and business aspects of components and software architectures.
Submitted research proposals should not be longer than 6 pages in double column ACM format. The submitted research proposal should address motivation, idea, benefits and planned next steps as well as related work and potential ideas of validation. It is well admitted, if a proposal primarily aims at discussion than at the presentation of solutions. Papers are to be submitted via the EasyChair conference system.
Accepted proposals will be published in the ACM Digital Library. The acceptance of a paper requires at least one author to register, present and to participate during the discussions of the workshop.
