Dear Colleague,

I would like to draw your attention to the pending call of ECSA for tool
demos. It is a great opportunity to advertise tools developed in your
team to a broader audience.  The architecture community is eager to
solicit presentations of tools from related and overlapping areas (like
model driven engineering, or software product lines) and bridging the
areas (like requirements and architecture).  See the details of the call

The accepted tool papers will be published in the main proceedings of

Yours truly,

Andrzej Wąsowski

ECSA 2010 Call for Tool Demos

For the first time, ECSA will give researchers and practitioners an
opportunity to demonstrate software architecture related tools in an
interactive session during the conference program. Tools may range from
mature prototypes to full developed products except commercial products.
The demonstrations are intended to highlight scientific contributions,
and provides a forum to show how a technique has been used for providing
a tool support.

Any of the topics of the main research paper track is appropriate for a
tool demo paper submission:

* requirements engineering and software architectures,

* quality attributes and software architectures,

* architecture reengineering, recovery,

* architecture conformance, run-time monitoring,

* aspect-oriented software architectures,

* Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA),

* web services: composition, orchestration, choreography,

* architecture-based solutions for evolving software intensive systems,

* architectures for ultra-large and long-lived systems,

* ontology-based approaches for component and architecture description,

* process and management of architectural decisions,

* process models and frameworks for architecture-centric software

* architecture-centric model driven engineering,

* architectural features of Model Driven Architecture (MDA),

* software tools and environments for architecture-centric software

* architectural concerns of autonomic systems,

* component-based models, middleware, component-based deployment,

* technology of components and component-based frameworks,

* industrial applications, case studies, best practices and experience

* architecture description languages and metamodels,

* architectural models, patterns and styles,

* architecture analysis, validation and verification,

* architecture transformation and refinement,

* architecture-based synthesis, code generation,

* architecture-based support for reconfigurable, adaptive or mobile

Note that papers accepted to the research, industrial or doctoral tracks
will be only presented in the corresponding sessions. Authors wishing to
present their work also as a tool demo must submit separately to the
tool demo track. In that case, the paper to be submitted must complement
the other track's paper and differ substantially from other submission.

A tool demo should be submitted as a paper describing the tool, its
relevance, availability, maturity and technical foundations. The paper
should also include some of the examples and screenshots to be shown in
the actual demo during the conference. Papers must be in LNCS format, up
to 4 pages long. However, authors are allowed to include 8 pages of
appedix to demonstrate different features of the tools and any other
details. However, camera ready copy of the accepted tool demo pappers
will be only 4 pages long. The tool demo papers should be submitted
following the Springer's LNCS formating guidelines like the main
conference papers and should be submitted as pdf file.

Submissions not conforming to the above conditions will be rejected
without review. Submissions must be about unpublished, original work,
not under review elsewhere (i.e. other than ECSA). Submissions will be
reviewed for originality, relevance to software architecture researchers
and practitioners, technical soundness, and presentation quality.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published
by Springer, provided that at least one author has registered for the
conference. Authors of accepted tool demos may also bring a poster to
the conference to enter into the best poster award competition. The
organization will provide boards and tables.
