Call for Papers

The 18th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2024) 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.

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 artifacts, 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. The selection of the best tool and demo paper will be made based on the votes of the attendants of the conference.


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). All submissions must conform to the LNCS template ( and must not exceed 8 pages.

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 (as a footnote in the first page of the submission or as links after the abstract of the submission). In addition, it is possible to provide open material, e.g., source code and/or a running instance of the tool. The links of the video and (if applicable) the additional material should be included in the contribution after the abstract and before the introduction sections.

Paper submissions must be made electronically via the online EasyChair submission site for the ECSA 2024 conference, selecting the “Tools&Demos Track”:

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, in a single step review process.


The accepted papers will be included in the ECSA 2024 companion volume to be published at LNCS (


Please note that as a condition for paper publication, each accepted submission needs to be presented at the conference (in person) by one of the authors, who shall register for the conference by the camera-ready paper deadline.
