Welcome to WICSA 

Sydney, Australia, April 7-11, 2014

11th Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture

WICSA is the premier gathering of practitioners and researchers interested in finding out about and improving the state of practice of Software Architecture. Since its inception, WICSA has functioned as a working conference, where researchers meet practitioners and where practicing software architects can explain the problems that they face in their day-to-day work and so influence the future of the field. Next to traditional conference keynotes and paper sessions WICSA includes interactive working sessions where practitioners and researchers discuss their experiences to understand the current state of the field, and identify opportunities to make a difference in the future.

WICSA 2014 is held in Sydney, Australia. Sydney is a cosmopolitan and compact capital where form follows the function, where both sea and deep forests are just a stone’s throw away. More...


The theme of the WICSA 2014 is “The Future of Software Architecture”. Software architecture as a discipline has produced many theoretical and practical results in the past two decades. As the software landscape continues to change rapidly and software systems become larger and more complex, new challenges for software architecture continue to emerge. We seek research papers and discussion papers that are directly related to this theme. We plan to dedicate a session to this theme
