September 1st: Tutorial Day
September 2nd - 5th: Main Conference
September 6th: Work in Progress: Call for Papers

Component-based software engineering (CBSE), is an emerging development paradigm that promises to accelerate software development and to reduce costs by assembling systems from prefabricated software components. Designing, developing and maintaining components and  component-based applications for reuse is, however, a very complex process, which places high requirements not only for the component functionality and flexibility, but also for the development organization. CBSE covers many software engineering disciplines and different techniques which still have not been fully defined, explained and exploited either from theoretical or practical points of view. 

The aim of the conference track is to bring together practitioners and researchers from academia and industry to improve the theories, technologies, and processes in component-based software development. We encourage submissions of both theoretical nature and experience reports from academia and especially from industry. Suggested areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:

Component models and technologies Component development processes
Component specification Components and Quality
Component evaluation CBSE organizational issues
Component compositions Component configuration management
Component-based software architecture

COTS (Commercial off the shelf)

Component-based requirements engineering Middleware solutions for CBSE
Component design, implementation, testing Development environment and tools
Building systems from components CBSE and aspect-oriented programming
Software product-line approach Case studies and experience reports
Components for real-time and embedded systems Software component markets and businesses

The submissions should be made electronically, either in postscript or PDF format.

The accepted paper should follow two column IEEE conference format. To get format  description and templates follow http://www.idt.mdh.se/ecbse/2003/ecbse-mansubmit.htm  link.

Papers should not exceed 6000 words. An abstract of up to 200 words should be included. If accepted, the paper must be made available in  Camera-ready forms by June 15th, 2003, and it must be personally  presented at the EUROMICRO 2002 Conference by the author or one of the  co-authors. The presenting author(s) must pre-register (full fee) for EUROMICRO 2003 before the due date of the Camera-ready paper

General information
This track is an integral part of the EUROMICRO 2003 conference. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.
