Call For Papers

Vancouver, Canada, June 17-21, 2013
(part of the CompArch federated conference series)

CBSE is kindly supported by ACM SIGSOFT (

The CBSE symposium has emerged as the flagship research event for the
component community. CBSE 2013 encompasses research (both theoretical and
applied) that extends the state-of-the-art in component specification,
composition, analysis, testing, and verification. Experience reports,
empirical studies and presentation of component-based benchmarks and case
studies are also within scope. Participants from industry and academia have
the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences in a variety of sessions
involving invited and technical presentations, panels, and so on.
New trends in global services, distributed systems architectures,
dynamically adaptable systems, and large-scale software systems often cross
organizational boundaries and push the limits of established
component-based methods, tools and platforms. Innovative solutions from
diverse paradigms (e.g., service-, aspect-, and agent-oriented) are needed
to address these emerging trends.

Topics of interest for CBSE 2013 therefore include, but are not limited to,
the following:
- Specification, architecture, and design of component models and
component-based systems
- Software quality assurance for component-based engineering
- Verification, testing and certification of component-based systems
- Component composition, binding, and dynamic adaptation
- Formal methods for automated component composition and integration
- Component-based engineering with agents, aspects, or services
- Component-based product-line engineering
- Non-functional properties (quality of service attributes) in
component-based engineering
- Patterns and frameworks for component-based engineering
- Tools and methods for component-based engineering
- Industrial experience using component-based software development
- Empirical studies in component-based software engineering
- Teaching component-based software engineering

A special theme titled "Components in the wild: from cyber-physical systems
to the cloud!" characterizes further topics of interest (for more details,
see at

Papers will be evaluated by at least three members of the Program
Committee. They should be in ACM format ( and describe,
in English, original work that has not been published or submitted
elsewhere. PDF versions of papers should be submitted through the CBSE 2013
EasyChair web site:

We solicit two categories of papers:

Regular papers, not exceeding 10 pages (including appendices), describing
fully developed work. Authors of papers reporting experimental work are
strongly encouraged to make their experimental
results available for use by reviewers. Similarly, case study papers should
describe significant case studies and the complete development should be
made available for use by reviewers.

Short papers of a maximum of 6 pages should describe novel ideas that have
not been fully evaluated, or operational tools and their contributions.
Tool papers should explain enhancements made compared to previously
published work. Authors of tools papers should make their tool available
for use by reviewers.

Accepted papers will be published by ACM. We are considering a special
journal issue that will include extended versions of the best papers of
CBSE 2013.

The following deadlines must be intended by considering the UMT/GMT time

Abstract submission deadline: February 06, 2013
Papers submission deadline: February 13, 2013
