  • 2nd International Workshop on Software Architecture Challenges in Big Data

    Event date: 
    Monday, 9 September, 2019 to Tuesday, 10 September, 2019


    Call for papers is already open. Important dates:

    • Paper submission: May 31, 2019
    • Notification: June 26, 2019
    • Camera-ready: July 5, 2019
    • Workshop: September 9-10, 2019



    The 2nd International Workshop on Software Architectures Challenges in Big Data (SACBD) is organized by the Big Data Value Association (BDVA) as part of the European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA, The objective of this workshop is to  provide a forum for discussing all aspects of the software architecture challenges of big data systems. The workshop welcomes the contributions of practitioners and researchers alike.

    Technical issues and challenges related to software architecture are well covered by the European Big Data Value Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda. Such software architecture trends are facilitating new data-driven operations and services which are at the core of the new economy revolving around big data value. As organizations become more and more data-centric, they need to re-design their software architectures accordingly. This affects not only the architecture design but also its implementation and non-functional aspects. This situation creates a need for new methods and tools to design and reason about software architectures in Big Data scenarios and paves the way for various research directions. How to design software architectures when dealing with Big Data? Which are the typical architectural patterns? How to assess the performance or the privacy risk of Big Data architectures? This workshop will focus on these and many others aspects of software architectures in the Big Data era.


    Topics of interest

    The workshop solicits papers on all aspects of software architecture for big data. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • Software architectures in genuine big data scenarios
    • Architectural patterns for big data
    • Architectures of big data systems (e.g., Spark, Flink, Hadoop)
    • Integration of Big Data systems with other business systems
    • Non-functional requirements (e.g., performance, security, privacy, reliability)
    • Combining big data with IoT, HPC, cloud computing, fog computing
    • Applying machine learning to big data scenarios, big data integration with artificial intelligence
    • Fostering business with big data and analytics


     Submission Guidelines

    Original, high-quality papers are solicited, from researchers and practitioners alike. Both full papers (maximum 8 pages) and short papers (maximum 4 pages) will be considered. All papers must be written in English and follow the ACM formatting instructions and templates for conference papers, as specified under Independently from the length, several types of papers will be considered (experience reports, new approaches, review or analysis of existing approaches, empirical studies, theoretical results, negative results, position papers, vision papers). The contribution of a paper must be commensurate with its length.

    Submitted papers must be original, not submitted and not published elsewhere. Accepted papers will be published in the ECSA companion proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. Papers must be submitted in PDF using the online submission system under the following link:

    All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Paper acceptance will be based on originality, significance, technical soundness, clarity of presentation, and relevance to the workshop topics.


     Further information

    The workshop is part of the European Conference on Software Architectures (ECSA), the premier European software architecture conference, providing researchers, practitioners and educators with a platform to present and discuss the most recent, innovative and significant findings and experiences in the field of software architecture research and practice. The 13th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2019) will be held on 9-13 September 2019 in Paris, France at FIAP Jean Monnet.

    The workshop will take place on 9-10 September 2019 in Paris, right before the main ECSA conference.
