Call for Contributions: ECSA 2010 Tool demos

In conjunction with the
4th European Conference on Software Architectures - ECSA 2010
August 23-36, 2010, Copenhagen, Denmark

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
    *      architectures for ultra-large and long-lived systems,
    *      ontology-based approaches for component and architecture
    *      process and management of architectural decisions,
    *      process models and frameworks for architecture-centric
software engineering,
    *      architecture-centric model driven engineering,
    *      architectural features of Model Driven Architecture (MDA),
    *      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 reports,
    *      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 applications.

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
appendix to demonstrate different features of the tools and any other
details. However, camera ready copy of the accepted tool demo papers
will be only 4 pages long. The tool demo papers should be submitted
following the Springer's LNCS formatting 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 main proceedings of ECSA
(Springer LNCS), 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.
