The role of software architecture in the engineering of software-intensive applications has become more and more important and widespread. Component-based and service-oriented architectures are key to the design, development and evolution of all software systems. The European Conference on Software Architecture is the premier European conference dedicated to the field of software architecture, covering all architectural aspects of software and service engineering. The ECSA conference series has been built upon a successful series of European workshops on software architecture held in United Kingdom in 2004 (Springer LNCS 3047), Italy 2005 (Springer LNCS3527), and France in 2006 (Springer LNCS 4344).
Following on the success the EWSA series and three ECSA editions, Madrid in 2007, Paphos in 2008, Cambridge in 2009), ECSA 2010 will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to share novel ideas on the foundations, languages, models, techniques, tools, and applications of software architecture technology. It will include keynotes, research, experience, and challenge papers, posters, and tool demos. Like the previous years, the proceedings of ECSA2010 are also planned to be published by Springer-Verlag as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
Selected papers from ECSA 2010 will be published in the journal of Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM).
