15th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2021), 13-17 September 2021 (virtual)
The European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA) is the premier European software architecture conference, providing researchers, practitioners, and educators with a platform to present and discuss the most recent, innovative and significant findings and experiences in the field of software architecture research and practice. The 15th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2021) will be held from 13 to 17 September 2021.
ECSA 2021 was originally planned in the beautiful city of Växjö Sweden. Yet due to COVID-19 and considering what impact this may have on the conference, the ECSA Steering and Organizing Committee decided to organize ECSA 2021 as a virtual event.
We would like to express our empathy and condolences with those affected by COVID-19. Our primary concern is that members of our community, and their families and friends, remain safe and well.
Linnaeus University is located in Växjö and Kalmar and offers over 150 degree programmes and 1300 single-subject courses. You can study different subjects within arts and humanities, health and life sciences, the social sciences, the natural sciences, technology, and business and economics. There are also a number of different contract educations, like the headmaster training and police education.
Research at Linnaeus University is of high quality, nationally as well as internationally, and covers a wide range of disciplines. Particularly prominent is the research carried out within our cutting-edge research environments – our Linnaeus University Centres. Within these centres, everything from ecology and evolution to discrimination and integration, postcolonialism, intermediality, bioscience, and big data is being studied.
With 2,100 employees and more than 33,000 students we strive to be a modern university, with Småland as our base and the world as our stage. To study and work at Linnaeus University means being part of an environment characterised by knowledge and development. Students acquire new knowledge and learn to have a critical approach. Researchers make discoveries that can change our society. Employees talk of a work place with both challenges and opportunities. Linnaeus University is a university where knowledge grows.
Linnaeus University was established in 2010 through a merger between Växjö University and University of Kalmar. For more infos: https://lnu.se/en
