The Brazilian Symposium on Software Components, Architectures, and Reuse (SBCARS) is a symposium promoted by Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) that gathers researchers, students and practitioners with a broad range of interests in software engineering related to component-based development, architectures and reuse. Previous editions of the symposium were highlighted by the presentation of high quality technical papers, international invited speakers, and tutorials. SBCARS 2015 intends to continue this tradition by offering a strong technical program, keynote talks by leaders in the field, and invited state-of-art presentations.

The last editions of SBCARS have also attracted various contributions of widely-recognized researchers in the area, such as Sven Apel, Paris Avgeriou, Krzysztof Czarnecki, Joseph Yoder, Flavio Oquendo, David Weiss, Dirk Muthig, Paul Clements, Len Bass, Nenad Medvidovic, Klaus Schmid, Charles Krueger, Patrick Hung, Heiko Ludwig, Jaejoon Lee, just to mention a few.

In this context, this CFP is looking for high-quality submissions for SBCARS 2015, and invites authors to contribute with technical papers related (but not limited) to the following themes:

Component-based Software Engineering: specification, verification, testing, evolution, certification, and quality of components of component-based systems
Software Architecture: architecture recovery; architecture description languages; software architecture evaluation; service-oriented architectures
Software Reuse: technical and non-technical issues
Software Product Lines: dynamic SPLs, service-oriented SPLs
Model-driven Engineering
Service-based Development
Aspect-Oriented Software Development
Design Patterns
Software Modularity
Variability Management
Generative Programming and Domain-Specific Languages
Tool support for software components, architectures, and reuse
Experimental Studies (controlled experiments, case studies, systematic reviews) related to software components, architectures, and reuse
Experience reports related to software components, architectures, and reuse


SBCARS 2015 is a member of the joint conference 6th Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice (CBSoft 2015), which will also host three other well-established Brazilian symposia:

29th Brazilian Symposium on Software Engineering (SBES 2015)
19th Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages (SBLP 2015)
18th Brazilian Symposium on Formal Methods (SBMF 2015)

CBSoft and SBCARS 2015 will take place in Belo Horizonte, the capital of the state Minas Gerais, Brazil. From the beauty of its green areas to the careful city-planning; from the wide array of cultural activities to the nature wonders of the Serra do Curral surrounding it, Belo Horizonte has several reasons for being constantly appointed as one of the Latin American metropolises that provides the best qualify of life.


Submitted papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Papers written in Portuguese need to be submitted with the title, abstract and keywords written in English. Submissions in English are strongly encouraged since the symposium proceedings will be submitted to Xplore and CSDL. Additionally, content will be submitted to the indexing companies for possible indexing. Indexing services are independent organizations, and we cannot guarantee that any particular abstract or index entry will be included in Ei Compendex or any other indexing service. Papers submitted to SBCARS 2015 must not have been simultaneously submitted to any other forum (conference or journal), nor should they have already been published elsewhere. The acceptance of a paper implies that at least one of its authors will register for the event to present it.

It is strongly encouraged that authors read papers from previous editions of SBCARS in order to cite related research work published in the symposium whenever it is applicable. This will motivate and can improve discussions between researchers working in the same area during the symposium. SBCARS' papers published in previous editions are available at the following URLs:

Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three referees, based on its originality, relevance, technical soundness, and clarity of presentation. Papers must be no longer than 10 pages, including figures, tables and references. Submissions must be sent in the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) format and must follow Conference Publishing Services (CPS)'s two-column conference format.

Templates can be found at: (Please use only Letter page size format).

Papers should be submitted electronically through EasyChair at


SBCARS' steering committee will award the Best Papers prize of the symposium. Only papers written in English will be eligible for the award, which will be announced during the event. Authors of best papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of a journal.
