The workshop will be a venue for both practitioners and researchers discussing problems, solutions and lessons learned related to software development in the context of multiple systems which are inter-dependent, interrelated or integrated. The goal of the workshop is to define challenges and find solutions for developers, integrators, and architects who work in such large open-source or industrial ecosystems.
We expect an interactive event, comprising the discussion of position papers, break-out groups, and plenary discussions.
We solicit submissions on technical topics related to scaling system architecture to the level of software ecosystems. What are relevant methods, processes, techniques and/or tools for architecting at scale? Which technical strategies are required to cope with the complexity of ecosystem architectures? How can architectural concepts assure end-to-end quality across system borders while keeping maintenance and evolution of the comprising systems independent from each other? What kind of capabilities do we need in terms of tools to analyze software ecosystems statically or monitor/diagnose them at run time?
