Component-based Software Engineering (CBSE) is concerned with the development of software intensive systems from reusable parts (components), the development of such reusable parts, and with the maintenance and improvement of systems by means of component replacement and customization. Although it holds considerable promise, there are still many challenges facing both researchers and practitioners in establishing CBSE as an efficient and proven engineering discipline. CBSE has been the focus of six workshops, which have been held consecutively at the most recent six International Conferences on Software Engineering (ICSE). The premise of the last three CBSE workshops was that the long-term success of component-based development depends on the viability of an established science and technology foundation for achieving predictable quality in component-based systems. The intent of this symposium was to build on this premise, and to provide a forum for more in-depth and substantive treatment of topics pertaining to predictability. This symposium brought together researchers and practitioners from a variety of disciplines related to CBSE to help establish cross-discipline insights, to provide a forum for presenting and discussing innovative approaches to CBSE, and to improve cooperation and mutual understanding.
