Call for papers scope the program committee of 11th european conference on software architecture (ecsa 2017) seeks submissions of papers describing basic and applied research, novel applications and experience reports on all topics related to software architectures including, but not limited to: foundational. However, no systematic review has been conducted previously to provide an extensive overview of software architecture evolvability research we consider full papers in english from peer-reviewed journals, conferences and workshops published up to and including the first two quarters of 2010 we did not set a lower. The aim of this paper is to promote and facilitate the application of the empirical paradigm to software architecture to this end, we describe the challenges and lessons learned when assessing software architecture research that used controlled experiments, replications, expert opinion, systematic literature. Research publications our group publishes research papers in academic conferences and journals with topics ranging from theory to systems visit our publications page for a complete list of our research papers the softarch team the software architecture research team at usc consists of faculty, phd students,. The coming-of-age of software architecture research, 2001 article bibliometrics data bibliometrics citation count: 13 downloads (cumulative): 2,429 downloads (12 months): 61 downloads (6 weeks): 6. Section 2 in section 3 we survey description of software architecture and continue with a section about analysis of software architecture we conclude the first part of this thesis with a discussion about the contri- butions of this thesis and further research part two of the thesis is a compilation of selected papers with results.
In the last decades, software architecture optimization methods, which aim to automate the search for an optimal architecture design with respect to a (set of) quality a systematic literature review and analyzed the results of 188 research papers from the different research communities based on this survey, a taxonomy has. The sei conducts ongoing research in many aspects of software architecture access information on the sei's current software architecture research based on this work and other research, members of the sei technical staff have published five books, hundreds of journal articles, papers in conference. Institute for software research university of california, irvine irvine, california 92697-3455 [email protected] abstract the design of software has been a focus of soft- ware engineering research since the field's beginning this paper explores key aspects of this research focus and shows why design will remain a. However, since the business goals and context continuously evolve, the software architecture must also change currently, a clear specification in software architecture activities and processes in agile environments does not exist in this paper, we provide an overview on agile development methodology along with the.
In this paper we describe a system for developing architectural design environments that exploit architectural styles to guide software architects in producing specific systems the primary contributions of this research are: a) a generic object model for representing architectural designs b) the characterization of architectural. Since software architecture was established as a systematic discipline in the mid 1990's, it has been subject of increasing interest in software engineering research and practice three classic reasons why architecture is important to software systems are: (1) architecture provides a basis for creating mutual understanding. Software engineering, there is a need to provide a systematic over- view of the current state of research on architectural decisions to achieve this goal, we present a systematic mapping study the overview in this systematic mapping study provides value by offer- ing the list of papers on architectural.
These scientists emphasized that the structure of a software system matters and getting the structure right is critical during the 1990s there was a concerted effort to define and codify fundamental aspects of the discipline, with research work concentrating on architectural styles (patterns), architecture description languages,. [email protected] alexander l wolf department of computer science university of colorado boulder, colorado 80309 [email protected] c 1989, 1991,1992 dewayne e perry and alexander l wolf abstract the purpose of this paper is to build the foundation for software architecture we rst develop an. Earlier today i read a post by michael feathers called 10 papers every developer should read (at least twice) i knew some of the articles mentioned there and learnt about few interesting onesi liked it so much, i thought i'd compile a similar list for software architects - based on stuff i read over the years.
Abstract this position paper makes the following claims that, in our opinion, are worthwhile to discuss at the workshop 1) the first phase of software archi- tecture research, where the key concepts are components and connectors, has matured the technology to a level where industry adoption is wide-spread and. This paper reports on a methodology and software architecture to decrease the fragility of software our methodology focuses on the testing activities in the software lifecycle we advocate a modeltbased approach to testing, and a philosophy of continuous testing, with design for testing throughout all phases of the software.
