Some of the topics listed in the call for papers are directly related to my research, e.g:
- design decisions and their influence on the quality of software architecture
- architectural standards and reference architectures
- coordination of business architecture, business processes, and software architecture
- traceability of software architecture to requirements and implementation
Unfortunately the deadline for submissions are already 8 February 2009 and it will be impossible for me to submit the paper I'm presently working on till then. Hopefully they might add a work-in-progress or a student session. I could go to the conference anyway, but it is always more productive if I have something to present.
Thomas also proposed I should think about giving an AUTOSAR tutorial on the WICSA conference. He thinks it would not be too much of work for me, but I think he is not aware how ambitious I usually am when it comes to teaching...
