ASWEC 2004 Melbourne University Computer Science Department

Title: 5th Australian Workshop on System and Software Architectures (AWSA2004)
Contact: Jean-Guy Schneider (, School of Information Technology, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia.
Duration: 1 1/2 Days
Cost: $139
Description: A current trend in software architecture is to make use of the benefits of software components (i.e., software units with well defined requires and provides interfaces which contractually specify component deployment and inter-component dependencies and interactions). One of the expected benefits from a linkage of software architecture and components is the use of contractual interfaces specifications which allow the inference of global system properties (e.g., quality attributes) from local component properties and architectural interaction patterns. However, practice has shown that this linkage is not as straightforward as it seems and, therefore, further investigations are needed to overcome the respective problems.

The aim of the 2004 Australasian Workshop on Software and System Architectures is to bring together practitioners and researchers to discuss ideas, exchange experiences and explore future directions in the area of software architectures and component-based software engineering. In particular, the workshop encourages submissions reporting industrial experiences (positive and negative) when using software components for architecting, configuring, or reengineering software and system architectures.

Title: 1st Australian Workshop on Engineering Service-Oriented Systems
Contact: Seng Loke (, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia,
Duration: 1 Day
Cost: $110
Description: Service-oriented computing is emerging as an important paradigm in the 21st century. There has been increasing research and industry focus on service-oriented systems, driven by the enormous potential benefits of the service-oriented philosophy. While traditional software engineering has a commendable history, thinking about software as offering services provides an interesting perspective with new software engineering challenges. This workshop seeks to provide an international forum for discussion and disseminating of research in the area.

Title: Managing Component-Based Software Re-use
Info: Sorry, but this workshop is no longer being offered.
