Call for Papers

The 15th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2021) Tools and Demonstrations (Tools&Demos) Track provides an opportunity for both researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent advances, ideas, experiences, and challenges in the field of Software Architecture by means of Tools&Demos presentations. As ECSA’21 is a virtual event, all presentations will be organized online.

Tools&Demos papers are intended to address any aspect of (i) tool support for Software Architectures or (ii) demonstrate results about the application of architectural approaches. Papers submitted to this track can belong to two distinct categories:

  • Tools: academic or industrial artefacts, with a specific purpose, that can be used by others. Tools should particularly show how scientific approaches related to software architecting have been or are being transferred into a working tool and how they advance the current state of the practice.

  • Demonstrations: academic or industrial exhibition of some result that explains how a novel or existing approach related to software architecting has been applied and possibly benchmarked.

Tools&Demos should not be used as a means for commercial advertisement.

We will strive to keep ECSA’s tradition to select the Best Tools&Demo Paper, awarded during the conference.

Submissions

Submissions of Tools&Demos papers should describe the work, how it relates to other industrial or research efforts, including references, what the expected benefits are, and the web-page for the tool (if one exists). Papers must be 5 pages (including references), CEUR-ART style, single-column (available at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip). Tools&Demos submissions should provide a link to a video, with audio commentary, of maximum five minutes length, with high resolution (e.g., details of the tool’s functionality should be clearly visible). The video must be uploaded on a server (e.g., YouTube, Google Drive, Dropbox) and the link included in the submission for its evaluation. Paper submissions must be made electronically via the online EasyChair submission site for the ECSA 2021 conference, selecting the “Tools&Demos Track”: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ecsa2021 The selection criteria of Tools&Demos papers will consider their originality, relevance for the ECSA audience, technical soundness, and presentation quality. Each submission will be evaluated by at least two members of the PC.

Proceedings

The accepted papers will be included in the ECSA 2021 companion volume to be published at CEUR (http://ceur-ws.org). This is an online proceedings that will be available before the conference starts. Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper in the proceedings. An author attending ECSA 2021 must present the paper. In addition, there will be post-proceedings of selected and extended papers that will be published in a LNCS volume (together with other tracks and ECSA 2021 workshops). Papers submitted for the post-proceedings will undergo an additional review cycle.

Important dates

  • Paper submission: July 2nd, 2021
  • Author notification: July 22nd, 2021
  • Camera-ready version: July 29th, 2021

Note: All deadlines are 23:59h AoE (anywhere on Earth)
