ISARCS 2011: 2nd International ACM Sigsoft Symposium on Architecting Critical Systems. Federated with CompArch. 20-24 June 2011, Boulder, Colorado, USA. Submission deadline: 15 January 2011.


ISARCS 2010 Call For Papers

Modern software systems increasingly run in and interact with an open environment. This characteristic pushes forward the boundaries of critical system beyond the traditional class of critical applications. Architecting critical systems is then getting more and more importance in every application domain. The dependability and security of these systems must persist when facing both predictable and unpredictable changes. This calls for effective methods, techniques and tools for developing, designing, maintaining, and upgrading critical systems.

This symposium is born as the union of the Workshop on Architecting Dependable Systems (WADS), the Workshop on the Role of Software Architecture for Testing and Analysis (ROSATEA), and the Workshop on Views On Designing Complex Architectures (VODCA). ISARCS is at the second edition and it is the perfect venue for exchanging ideas on both theory and practice for architecting critical systems. Architecting these systems has the big challenge to guarantee both the perceived and objective dependability and security even accepting service degradation. This requires trade-off among the various attributes of dependability and security that cannot be considered in isolation.
The aim of ISARCS is to bring together different communities in order to create a forum in which the different expertise collaborate in providing a comprehensive view on how to design, develop, maintain and evolve critical systems from the architectural perspective.


We are interested in submissions from both industry and academia, including, but not limited to, the following main areas:

  • New paradigm for designing evolving critical systems: extensible architectural description languages; architectural styles; architectural patterns; architectural support for evolution; integrators (wrappers) for dependability; model-driven development; component based development; aspects oriented development; assurance based development;

  • Testing and analysis of evolving systems: testing; simulation; inspection techniques; type checking; run-time checks; model-checking; theorem proving; fault injection

  • Architecting fault-tolerant and evolvable critical systems: tolerating architectural mismatches; redundancy and diversity; survivability; error confinement; monitoring; exception handling; self-healing

  • Combined approaches for architecting evolving and critical systems: integrated processes; combination of methods; interplay of techniques; integration of analysis techniques; the integration of tools;

  • Relevant domains with critical systems: critical infrastructures; embedded systems; mobile and ubiquitous systems; automotive systems; avionic systems; e-commerce; e-business; e-government;

  • Industrial needs: reports about industrial case studies, challenges, problems and solutions
