Call for Workshops

Scope and Goal

The European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA) is the premier European forum for presenting and discussing software architecture research and practice.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops and tutorials held in conjunction with ECSA 2024. Workshops and tutorials will be held on September 2-3, 2024 (right before the main conference on 4-5 September 2024).

ECSA workshops allow researchers and practitioners to exchange and explore innovative software architecture (scientific or engineering) ideas and challenges at an early stage.

Topics of interest are, but are not limited to:

  • Software Architecture challenges for AI- and ML-based Systems
  • Software Architecture challenges for Self-Adaptive Systems
  • Software Architecture challenges for Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Software Architecture challenges in Big Data and Cloud Computing
  • Software Architecture challenges in IoT-based Systems
  • Software Architecture challenges in DevOPS and MLOPS
  • Software Architecture challenges in Blockchain Engineering
  • Quality-of-service (QoS) measurements of Software Architectures
  • Privacy and Security in Software Architectural Design
  • Context-aware, Autonomous, and Smart Architectures
  • Sustainability in Software Architectures
  • Software Architecture Erosion and Architectural Consistency
  • Technical Debt in Software Architecture Design
  • Architecting the Digital Twin
  • Continuous Architecting
