8th International Conference on Software Paradigm Trends RRS feed

  • Question

  • The purpose of the ICSOFT-PT 2013, the 8th International Conference on Software Paradigm Trends, is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested on information technology and software development. This eighth edition will focus in priority on the four main paradigms that have been intensively studied during the last decade for software and system design, namely: Models, Aspects, Services and Context. These four paradigms will drive the design and development of future software systems encompassing a large number of research topics and applications: from programming issues to the more abstract theoretical aspects of software engineering; from models and services to the most complex management information systems; Distributed systems, ubiquity, data interoperability; context understanding and many other topics are included in the scope of ICSOFT-PT.


    Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the following main topic areas:
