Workshop theme and goals

This workshop focuses on current and emerging methods, languages, notations, technologies and tools to extract, represent, share, use and re-use architectural knowledge. Architectural Knowledge (AK) is the integrated representation of the software architecture of a software-intensive system (or a family of systems), the architectural design decisions, and the external context/environment. It is increasingly recognized as the means for architecture governance; it facilitates and supports collaboration and the transfer of expertise.

In this fifth SHARK edition we will ask the community to discuss and contribute on how to reorganize and codify the Body of Knowledge of the WICSA community (WICSA BOK). This is partially available through and, but it needs to be reorganized and unified. We see two broad objectives: (1) to codify the BOK in the way the potential users (i.e. the members of the architecture community) would like to see it; and (2) exploit Web 2.0 and social networking techniques to support AK sharing, and better reachability/usability (again) according to the actual needs of the community itself. SHARK contributions will have the opportunity to propose their ideas and R&D results to shape the next generation BOK.

As tradition, SHARK aims to bring together researchers and practitioners that are interested in sharing and reusing architectural knowledge. The workshop will kick-start with short position statements from the paper authors. The main focus will be on fosters creative discussion between the participants in specific themes. Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 30 participants.

Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

* Types of architectural knowledge in industrial settings
* Notations and languages to model or visualize architectural knowledge
* Ontologies, domain models and meta-models for architectural knowledge
* Communicating, sharing and using architectural knowledge – approaches and case studies
* Tools to extract, visualize, share or use architectural knowledge
* Evolution of architectural knowledge
* Sharing architectural knowledge in the context of service-oriented architectures (SOA) or Model-Driven Engineering (MDE)
* Architectural knowledge in Global Software Engineering
* Communicating architectural knowledge in open and closed communities
* Architectural knowledge for requirements engineering
* Traceability between requirements, architectural design decisions and architectural solutions (e.g. patterns, tactics, reference architectures)
* Architectural knowledge in the process of architecting
* Emerging technologies supporting knowledge sharing

Guidelines for Submission

We are soliciting papers in three distinct categories:
1) future trend papers, describing ongoing research, new results, and future trends (maximum 4 pages);
2) research papers describing innovative and significant original research in the field (maximum 8 pages);
3) industrial papers describing industrial experience, case studies, challenges, problems and solutions (maximum 8 pages).

A special kind of industrial paper submission is an example of a document that shares some kind of architectural knowledge, together with an evaluation of it or a description of the techniques that it uses.

Please submit your paper online at the ICSE cyberchair site. Submissions should be original and unpublished work. Each submitted paper will undergo a rigorous review process by three members of the Program Committee. All types of papers must conform to the ICSE submission format and guidelines. All accepted papers will appear in the IEEE Digital Library.

Special issue
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit their papers to the Journal of Systems and Software
