Welcome to WICSA 2008

WICSA 2008 is the seventh international conference devoted entirely to Software Architecture. Its purpose is to bring together software engineering practitioners and researchers from industry and academia to exchange experiences, results and ideas related to all aspects of software architecture. Its mission is to strengthen and expand its role as the premier conference on architectural issues in software system design, development and maintenance, practitioners as well as academics

What's New

  • We're done! Thank you all for attending and contributing to a great conference. This wiki remains open for all attendees to contribute.
  • If anyone needs assistance editing content or uploading files, please contact me. At some point after the conference, I'll be renaming pages so they follow a consistent pattern.

If you find the wiki useful or have suggestions for improvement, please provide feedback to: Michael Marzec (WikiMaster). If anyone needs specific Wiki support, I'm here at the conference, and have already briefly met a few of you.

Wiki Page Naming Convention

Suggestions have been made on the naming convention for the WICSA pages. This will will go a long way towards mitigating any naming conflicts, especially with previous WICSA pages. New pages should follow the convention, where possible, and existing pages will be moved/renamed to follow the convention.

The current convention is: Wicsa7:<BOF|Papers|Sessions|Tutorials|Workshops>:Session_Name
