Goals and Scope

Component-based Software Engineering (CBSE) is concerned with the development of software intensive systems from reusable parts (components), the development of reusable parts, and system maintenance and improvement by means of component replacement and customization. The CBSE symposium has a track record of bringing together researchers and practitioners from a variety of disciplines to promote a better understanding of CBSE from a diversity of perspectives, and to engage in active discussion and debate.


CBSE 2006 is open to all participants interested in CBSE and related areas. The symposium addresses participants from both universities and industry.


Call for Papers

The use of software components is well-established in diverse application domains, including embedded systems, enterprise servers and distributed applications. While the theoretical underpinnings of component specification, composition, analysis and verification remain open research issues, the engineering contexts for component development are evolving. Contemporary developments such as service-oriented architectures and web services, model-driven development and grid technologies are creating new opportunities and challenges for component-based software engineering.


CBSE 2006 welcomes contributions that explore how the nature of component-based software engineering is being influenced by developments in the field of software technology. In addition to presentations of accepted papers, the symposium will incorporate working sessions based around these issues. The sessions will examine how component-based development [to do]. Each working group will be given an opportunity to present its finding in a plenary session.



Paper Submissions: CBSE 2006 invites two categories of submissions. Long papers (12-16 pages, LNCS style) describe technical contributions to CBSE in depth. This includes both research papers and experience reports. Short papers (6-8 pages, LNCS style) concisely describe ongoing work, new ideas, experiences, etc.


Topics of interest include:

·        Generation and adaptation of component-based systems;

·        Components and model-driven development

·        Specification, verification, testing and checking of component systems;

·        Compositional reasoning techniques for component models;

·        Measurement and prediction models for component assemblies;

·        Patterns and frameworks for component-based systems;

·        Extra-functional system properties of components and component-based systems;

·        Static and execution-based measurement of system properties;

·        Assurance and certification of components and component-based systems;

·        Components for service-oriented architectures, web services and grid systems

·        Development environment and tools for building component-based systems;

·        Components for real-time, secure, safety critical and/or embedded systems;

·        Case studies and experience reports.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members (four for papers with an author on the program committee). Papers must not have been previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere. Any duplicate submissions will be rejected without review. We are currently negotiating to have the proceeding published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.




Details on using the electronic paper submission system and formatting instructions will appear on the CBSE web site by January 1st 2006.


As always, the symposium seeks reports on innovative contributions to the science and technology of CBSE. Papers describing practical experience with CBSE in high-assurance or performance-critical systems are of particular interest. Other area of interest can be found on the Web at:




The symposium is scheduled the week before ECOOP 2006 (http://www.emn.fr/x-info/ecoop2006/), making it convenient for delegates to attend both events.
