Evolving Architectures

Eighth International ACM Sigsoft Conference on the Quality of Software Architectures
QoSA 2012

Bertinoro, Italy, June 25-28, 2012
The conference is a part of CompArch 2012

The goal of QoSA (Quality of Software Architectures) is to address the quality aspects of software architecture, focusing broadly on its quality characteristics and how these relate to the design of software architectures. Specific issues of interest are defining and modeling quality measures, evaluating and managing architecture quality, linking architecture to requirements and implementation, and preserving architecture quality throughout the system lifetime.
