10th International Conference on Software Composition

30 June – 1 July, 2011, Zurich, Switzerland

The International Conference on Software Composition (SC) is the leading venue that addresses challenges of how composition of software parts may be used to build and maintain large software systems. Software Composition 2011 will be the tenth edition in the series, and we invite researchers and practitioners to submit high-quality papers. Submissions that relate theory and practice of software composition are particularly welcome. Software Composition 2011 is co-located with TOOLS 2011 Federated Conferences .

Topics of Interest:

The SC 2011 program committee seeks original, high-quality papers related to software composition, such as but not limited to the following topics:

  • Component-based software engineering
  • Composition and adaptation techniques
  • Composition algebras, calculi and type systems
  • Feature-oriented software development
  • Aspect-oriented software development
  • Model-driven composition
  • Models of computation
  • Verification, validation and testing
  • Dynamic composition and reconfiguration
  • Large-scale component-based systems
  • Cloud, service-oriented architectures
  • Business process orchestration
  • Visual composition environments
  • Performance optimization of composite systems


We solicit high-quality submissions on research results and/or experience (up to 16 pages, LNCS format, including bibliography and figures) describing a technical contribution in depth. Short and position papers are also welcome for the work in progress session (up to 8 pages, LNCS format, including bibliography and figures). Short submissions must concisely capture ongoing work, new ideas, and experiences.

Papers should be submitted via http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sc2011.

Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. As in previous years, the proceedings of the conference will be published as a volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

The call for papers is available as text and PDF.
