One of the important benefits of architectural description is the ability to analyze an architecture's properties formally. There are many possible analyses that one could in principle carry out, ranging from evaluating the consequences of certain architectural decisions, checking the soundness and correctness of an architecture relative to some criteria, determining the correspondence between an architecture and other development artifacts (requirements, implementations, etc.), and many others. In the session(s) on Evaluation and Analysis we consider a variety of such analyses, including cost projection, architectural style determination, architecture recovery, and mobility.

- Jason Smith. I am a researcher at UNC - Chapel Hill, and my area is SPQR, an automated toolset for extracting design elements from source code or other design artifacts. I will be discussing this in my position talk, and the application that I see in the architectural realm. In many ways, SPQR addresses the documentation gap discussed during Booch's Keynote address on Monday. I am interested in learning better how SPQR and the underlying technologies could be used in facilitating architecture analysis and ultimately, refinement.

Pre-registration for working sessions on the wiki is now closed. If you have not done so already, please sign up for working sessions at the conference registration table on Monday or Tuesday morning. We want to keep these sessions small to foster discussion. Seating is limited in some rooms. Because of this there may be a limit on the number who can participate - if that is the case then the first to sign up will be given preference. Once you have signed up at the registration table and ensured you have a spot, you can return here and add yourself to the list and introduce yourself.
