Component-based software engineering (CBSE) is a 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 functional and non-functional properties, but also for the development organization. CBSE covers many software engineering disciplines and different techniques. Many of them have been developed and successfully implemented. CBSE has been successful in certain engineering domains, such as office applications and distributed internet-based applications but it is still in the early stage of utilization in many other domains, in particular those which have specific requirements on different quality attributes.

The CBSE track, seventh in a row, has a goal to point out the overall challenges and problems of the component-based approach, but also show the new ideas, solutions and practices. The aim of the track is to bring together researchers and practitioners 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 Components assessments
Component-based software architecture COTS components
Components and Quality Attributes

Components and Open Source

Component compositions - modeling, static and dynamic compositions, taxonomies Components and Service Oriented Architecture
Middleware solutions for CBSE Component markets and businesses
Component design, implementation, testing Development environment and tools
Component development processes Case studies and experience reports
Dependability of component-based systems Components and Model-driven Development
Components for real-time and embedded systems CBSE and product-line development, CBSE and variability
Empirical validation of CBSE CBSE and emerging disciplines (aspect-oriented programming, etc. )

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS - the submission is closed

The accepted paper should follow two column IEEE conference format. To get format  description and templates follow the IEEE link.

Papers should not exceed 8 pages (in IEEE/CS proceedings format; 10pt, single-space, double-column) or 6000 words and include an abstract of up to 150 words.  Papers must not have been previously published or submitted elsewhere. If accepted, the paper must be personally  presented at the EUROMICRO 2007 Conference by the author or one of the  co-authors. The presenting author(s) must pre-register (full fee) for EUROMICRO SEAA 2007 before the due date of the Camera-ready paper.

The authors of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of the papers to special edition of Elsevier  JOURNAL OF SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURE.

VENUE: Lübeck
This year's conferences take place in Lübeck, Germany, whose historic city center became a UNESCO World Heritage in 1987. Lübeck gained wealth as a member of the economic and political Hanseatic League. It dominated the League as its capital for 300 hundred years, as north-south and east-west trading routes met there.  Besides its architecture Lübeck is also linked to the Mann-family of which Thomas Mann was awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 1929. His novel "Buddenbrooks" portrays a mercantile family in Lübeck

This track is an integral part of the EUROMICRO SEAA 2007  conference. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.
