Tool demos – call for contributions


11th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2017) tool demonstrations track provides an opportunity for both practitioners and researchers to present and discuss the most recent advances, experiences and challenges in the field of software architecture by means of live tool presentations. Tool demo submissions addressing any aspect of tool support to help software architects can belong in two distinct categories:

  • Tools used in practice, either from commercial vendors or open source projects. These demonstrations should focus on practical applications within the different activities of software architecting and should particularly show how they advance the current state of the practice. New ideas and features are particularly welcome.
  • Research tools from academic or industrial research environments. These demonstrations are intended to highlight underlying scientific contributions and show how scientific approaches have been transferred into a working tool.

Both categories may range from early prototypes to in house or pre-commercialized products. Authors of regular ECSA 2017 research papers are also welcomed to submit an accompanying tool paper and supplement additional information regarding the tool (such as, multimedia and tool maturity).

Accepted tool demos will be published in the ECSA 2017 Proceedings Companion Volume, and as in previous editions these shall appear in the ACM Digital Library.
