Call For Papers

The Fifth IEEE International Workshop on
Quality Oriented Reuse of Software (QUORS’11)


A joint event with COMPSAC’2011
The 35th Annual IEEE International Computer Software
and Applications Conference
Munich, Germany, July 18 - 22, 2011



Software reuse has been one of the most effective paradigms for building software systems and applications for

decades. Recently, the rapid and fundamental advances in computing technologies have been driving the role and scope

of software systems to new levels. A number of new types of software systems are emerging, among which service based

systems, pervasive computing, cloud computing and Internet of Things are eminent examples. The advent of these

emerging systems has raised the level of software reuse to services, large-scale components or agglomeration of

components in more challenging context which is pervasive, service-oriented, embedded real-time, trustworthy, or in

very large corporation scale. Systematic and large-scale reuse of reusable assets at multiple development levels is

improving the efficiency of software development activities significantly in terms of cost and time.

However, previous research in software reuse mainly focused on the functional aspect of a system, tended to ignore

or treat the quality aspects trivially. Modern computing models tend to be globally distributed, ubiquitous, highly

trustworthy, and dynamically adaptive. These systems, such as SOA, pervasive/ubiquitous systems, and embedded

systems, have imposed more rigorous quality requirements on software reuse technologies. It becomes a great

challenge to meet the new requirements of emerging software systems and meanwhile enjoy the benefits of substantial

software reuse.

Recently, the research community and industry have been aware of the above weakness and much work has been ongoing.

In this workshop we wish to bring together researchers and practitioners to share research results, advances and

practical experiences under the banner of “Quality Oriented Reuse of Software for Emerging Software Systems”. The

workshop will act as a forum for active discussion, idea stimulation and communication.


The workshop will bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry for advancing the methodology

and technology of software reuse which emphasizes meeting strict quality requirements, such as dependability,

agility and performance, particularly in the context of emerging types of software systems. The workshop seeks new

approaches, system architectures and tools that facilitate the quality aspects of software reuse technologies.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Reuse in Service Oriented Systems (SOA);
* Service and service-based system engineering;
* Clouds and reuse;
* Pervasive or ubiquitous systems;
* Aspect-oriented software reuse;
* Trustworthy software reuse methods;
* Dependable Component-Based Systems;
* Software product lines;
* Quality aspects of design patterns;
* Software evolution;
* Software quality metrics and testing;
* Model-driven software engineering;
* Component and service repository;
* Quality-oriented COTS product reuse;
* Reuse in service and component based Enterprise Systems;
* Reuse in Embedded Software Systems;
* Open source software reuse;
* Resilient (adaptive) reuse;
* Case studies and experience reports.


Researchers and practitioners in software reuse, software evolution, emerging software systems such as SOA,

pervasive computing and embedded software, testing and quality assurance and all other relevant areas. The chairs

expect to bring to the workshop researchers and practitioners worldwide from research institutes, universities and

Papers must be submitted electronically via the QUORS 2011 Submission Page (

Please follow the instructions posted on the web site. The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines

for IEEE conference proceedings, i.e., 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press

Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers. The paper should not exceed 4000 words or 6 pages in IEEE

paper format including figures, tables, and references. Any problem, please contact the workshop chair

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee according to its originality, significance, correctness,

presentation and relevance. We also encourage authors to present position papers on practical studies and

experiments, critique of existing work, emerging issues, and novel ideas under development. Papers can be submitted

as either regular papers, short papers, or fast abstracts. Acceptance and final category depends on reviewer


Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the 35th IEEE Computer Software and Applications

Conference (COMPSAC 2011) by IEEE Computer Society Press, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index (Elsevier's

Engineering Information Index), and automatically included in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors

of each accepted paper or fast abstract must register as a full participant of the workshop to have the paper or

fast abstract published in the proceedings.
