Call for Papers

The Industry Track at ECSA 2024 brings together practicing software architects and software architecture researchers from regional, European, and worldwide communities. We are seeking contributions from industry that share challenges, practical solutions, successful practices, failures, and lessons learned while analyzing, designing, implementing, evaluating, and evolving software architectures.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following themes:

  • Experience with architectures for emerging technologies
  • Domain-specific challenges for software architects and architectures
  • Architecture specification and documentation
  • Architectural patterns, tactics, and tools
  • Practices and methods supporting architecture design, evaluation and evolution
  • Integration of architectural practices and methods with other software engineering approaches/practices/methods (e.g. Agile)
  • Social and organizational aspects

The ECSA 2024 Industry track aims to contribute to bridging the gap between academia and industrial practice by establishing an open communication and discussion environment. It will offer researchers and practitioners the opportunity to interact with fellow professionals and develop new ideas and skills for addressing industrial problems and collaborations.

There are three ways to contribute:

  • Full Papers (up to 16 pages in Springer LNCS style) describing best practices and experience from applying novel approaches to large-scale industrial projects in the context of software architecture. Submissions will be selected based on originality, quality, soundness, practical relevance, and potential for discussion.
  • Short Papers and Presentations (6-10 pages in Springer LNCS style) outlining presentations on practices and experience related to software architecture from the industry. Submissions will be selected based on originality, practical relevance, and potential for discussion.
  • Software Architecture Showcases (6 pages in Springer LNCS style) demonstrating a specific real-world architecture (including its flaws) together with a discussion of the context, challenges, and/or process that led to its present form. It can be formulated as an abstract outlining the architecture to be presented, preferably together with links to externally available work products. Submissions will be selected based on the offered insights into real architectural work, work products, and learnings related to architecture.

All contributions need to be written in English, must be original, not published, accepted, or submitted for publication elsewhere. If accepted, each contribution needs to be presented by one of the authors who is registered at the conference.


Paper submissions must be made electronically via the online EasyChair submission site for the ECSA 2024 conference (


All accepted papers will appear in the Springer proceedings as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. In addition, it is possible to include a summary of showcases in the proceedings, too.minor revision cycle where the extensions will be checked by the reviewers.
