Component-based Software Engineering (CBSE) has emerged as a key technology for developing and maintaining global networked information systems and services, distributed real-time automation systems, grids and sensor networks. CBSE combines elements of object-oriented technologies, software architecture, software verification, modular software design, configuration and deployment. CBSE has made major inroads into mainstream networked software-intensive systems. If you are taking a train, accessing your bank account or health insurance over the Internet, searching and ordering a book or tracking its delivery, very likely CBSE is at work in the distributed software enabling such everyday activities in transport, commerce, health, automation, environment and defense.

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 2007 is open to all participants interested in CBSE and related areas. The symposium addresses participants from both universities and industry.


The theoretical foundations of component specification, composition, analysis and verification continue to pose research challenges. While the engineering models and methods for component software development are slowly maturing, new trends in global services and distributed systems architectures push the limits of established and tested component-based methods, tools and platforms:

CBSE 2007 will include contributions that explore how the nature of component-based software engineering is being influenced by developments in the field of software and global enterprise technology. In addition to presentations of papers, the symposium will incorporate working and industry sessions.

Topics of interest

Paper Submission

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.

As always, the symposium seeks reports on innovative contributions to the science and technology of CBSE. Papers describing practical experience with CBSE in mission- and performance-critical systems are of particular interest. Long and short papers on leading-edge research and development in progress are also encouraged. Long papers must not exceed 16 pages and short papers must not exceed 8 pages, in the required format.

The proceeding will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and papers should have the requisite format.

The submission deadline has passed.
