Call for Proposals

ICSA 2023 will be held in L’Aquila, Italy between March 13-17, 2022. ICSA 2023 workshops aim to provide a forum for researchers and software architects to explore and exchange experiences and R&D results in the field of software architecture. Rising interest and new development in software architecture, new explorations, software architecture application and integration to other areas of software engineering and new perspectives in software architecture are suitable themes for ICSA workshop.

Workshops may be half-day or one-day events. For ideas of ICSA workshop themes, please refer to past ICSA workshops.

Workshop organizers are responsible for the submission and selection of papers. Submissions must follow the IEEE Computer Science proceedings format, as workshop proceedings will be published in ICSA 2023 Companion proceedings, and appear in IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Workshop organizers may allow for different types of contributions (e.g., technical, position, and case study papers), but a workshop paper should not exceed a maximum of 8 pages in IEEE format.
