WICSA 2008
Working IEEE / IFIP Conference on Software Architecture

The conference for software architects, by software architects

Vancouver, BC, Canada
18 – 21 February 2008

Software Architecture Tutorials – Open to All!

WICSA is the premier gathering of practitioners and researchers interested in finding out about and improving on the state of practice of Software Architecture. WICSA is a working conference, where researchers meet practitioners and where practicing software architects can explain the problems that they face in their day-to-day work and so influence the future of the field. In addition to traditional conference keynotes and paper sessions WICSA includes interactive working sessions where practitioners and researchers discuss their experiences in order to understand the current state of the field, and identify opportunities to make a difference in the future.

The WICSA 2008 organizing committee is pleased to offer nine leading-edge tutorials covering various aspects of software architecture. These tutorials are chosen specifically for their relevance, timeliness, and the qualifications of the presenters. These tutorials will be of interest to industry practitioners, students, and researchers.

Open to all! Registration for the main WICSA conference is NOT required in order to register for the tutorials, which will be held on Feb. 18th and Feb. 22nd, 2008 in Vancouver, BC.
