The annual meeting of the special interest group on “software architecture” of the German Computer Science Society called “Architekturen 2014” was held at ABB Ladenburg. The meeting’s main theme was “Architectures for Industry 4.0“. The fourth industrial revolution is expected from a reorganization of industrial production processes to exploit the capabilities of cyber-physical systems. A dozen of invited talks from researchers and practitioners gave various perspectives on the topic and how it will affect software architectures.
The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Conference will take place at the Marriott City Center in Minneapolis from April 29 to May 3, 2013. Olaf Zimmermann and me served as program co-chairs this year. The conference features an exciting program with keynotes from Stephan Murer (Credit Suisse), Scott Berkun, and Mary Poppendieck as well as more than 30 talks from renowned industrial speakers. Early registration runs until April 1st!
Together with Ian, Jenny, Anne, and Mazeiar, I am organizing SE4SG’13, the 2nd International Workshop on “Software Engineering Challenges for the Smart Grid” at the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) 2013 in San Francisco, US. This 2nd workshop will focus on understanding and identifying the unique challenges and opportunities for SE to contribute to and enhance the design and development of the smart grid. Thanks to all members of the program committee for providing great reviews to the paper submissions. The workshop will be held on May 18th and will feature five paper presentations and a working session.
Here are the slides from my talk at WICSA 2012:
Two panels at WICSA 2012 in Helsinki discussed the state of software architecture research as well as its future. The slides of the panel speakers are now online: Philippe Kruchten, Len Bass, Ivica Crnkovic, Eoin Woods, Uwe Zdun, Anna Liu, Eltjo Poort.

This week, Jens, Steffen, Petr and me conducted a GI-Dagstuhl Seminar on the topic of “Multicore Software Performance Engineering“. We had productive discussions with around 20 junior researchers and plan to publish a summarizing workshop report soon.
Anne and Catia have received a best paper award for their contribution “Detection and Solution of Software Performance Antipatterns in Palladio Architectural Models” at the International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE’11). Congratulations!
Last Monday, Paul, Steffen, and me chaired the 2nd Int. Workshop on the Quality of Service-oriented Software Systems (QUASOSS’10) at this years MoDELS 2010 conference in Oslo. About 20 participants listened to the invited talk by Prof. Dorina Petriu and 6 paper presentations. The papers and presentations will soon be hosted at the QUASOSS website.
