20th International Doctoral Symposium on Components and Architecture
Doctoral Symposium of CompArch 2015
May 4, 2015, Montreal, Canada
In the frame of the CompArch 2015 conference, WCOP is organized as a Doctoral Symposium for young researchers in the area of component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality. The opportunity for WCOP participants goes far beyond the event day and includes the possibility to network and exchange ideas with leading researchers in the field, who gather at CompArch every year.
The doctoral symposium is aimed to give feedback from established researchers to promising new ideas in the field of component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality to young researchers in all phases of their Phd career. Therefore we intentionally encourage PhD students, young Post-Doc researchers, and junior academics to submit their proposal statements with potentially unfinished and not yet validated ideas.
Each year, the CompArch Young Investigator Award may be given to an outstanding paper accepted for WCOP and written by a PhD student(s). The award includes a free registration to CompArch and the presentation of the paper during the main CompArch program.
Areas of interest are component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality in general. More specifically, this includes:
Submitted research proposals should not be longer than 6 pages in double column ACM format. The submitted research proposal should address motivation, idea, benefits and planned next steps as well as related work and potential ideas of validation. It is well admitted, if a proposal primarily aims at discussion than at the presentation of solutions. Papers are to be submitted via the EasyChair conference system.
Accepted proposals will be published in the ACM Digital Library. The acceptance of a paper requires at least one author to register, present and to participate during the discussions of the workshop.

WCOP, formerly the Workshop on Component Oriented Programming, was founded in 1996 and organized subsequently by Clemens Szyperski, Cuno Pfister, Wolfgang Weck, Jan Bosch, and Ralf Reussner. It has ran in a series of highly successful workshops, mainly at ECOOP and later with CompArch. WCOP has traditionally attracted a healthy mix of advanced PhD students, junior academics, and industrial researchers - all presenting their latest work in progress. After WCOP'96 focused on the fundamental terminology of COP, the subsequent workshops expanded into the many related facets of component software. In conjunction with CompArch, where the most established conferences of the field are bundled, WCOP will play the role of an entry level scientific event, targeting submissions with innovative ideas in their early state, where established members of the community give feedback by reviews and the discussions during the symposium. The high number of experienced researchers traditionally attending WCOP makes WCOP a particularly interesting workshop for young researchers seeking feedback from the scientific and industrial community.
