                                      SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

                                SC 2003 Software Composition

Workshop affiliated with
ETAPS 2003 (
Warsaw, Poland, April 5-13, 2003
Workshop Day: April 6

The component-based approach to produce software from smaller units has
attracted increasing attention of both research and industry. Software
composition extends this approach because it does not only reason about
component models but investigates into technology to compose components.

The rationale behind this trend is in the promise of reuse. This is the idea
to produce software by "plug & play" components which already exist or are
produced by different external vendors. Components and software composition
are considered to be a new way to overcome the remaining problems
still not solved by the object-oriented paradigm.

Topics of Interest

In this context, the intention of this workshop is to collect new
approaches and experiences to software composition, e.g.,

      o novel composition operators,
      o composition languages,
      o merging techniques,
      o adaptation techniques,
      o verification and validation techniques,
      o view-and aspect composition techniques,
      o dynamic composition techniques,
      o program analysis for composition,
      o uniform composition techniques for XML dialects
      o generic semantic analysis for uniform composition

To emphasise the economic relevance papers with a practical background are
Further proposals for topics of a discussion session are appreciated.

Important Dates:

Submission of full paper : December 20, 2002
Notification: January 25, 2003
Final version due : February 15, 2003 (HARD deadline)
Early bird registration ETAPS: unknown yet, but was last year around Feb 15.

Submission Guideline and Publication Procedure:

We solicit papers up to 8 pages, containing new material, work in progress,
or position papers. The papers should be in standard Postscript Level 2 or
PDF. Only electronic submission will be allowed. Please send an e-mail with
the subject: "ETAPS SC 2003 submission" and containing your submission in
[Postscript|PDF] to

The acceptance of a paper implies that at least one of the authors will
register for the workshop and thus present the paper. All accepted
publications will be made available in an online proceedings on the
&nbsp;workshop web page, and in a technical report of ETAPS.
The online proceedings will appear in a volume of Electronic Notes in
Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS). You can see the this year's
publications by looking up the URL ENTCS affords a rapid
publication of proceedings and other appropriate material online. The series
is reviewed by both the Mathematical Reviews of the AMS and the ACM's
Computing Reviews. Additonally, the Table of Contents and Abstracts from
each volume are published in TCS as they appear online. The series was
founded to promote the rapid and widespread dissemination of proceedings of
conferences and workshops, lecture notes, PhD theses and other similar
