The role of software architecture in the engineering of software- intensive applications has become more and more important and widespread. Component-based and service-oriented architectures are key to the design, development and evolution of all software systems.

The European Conference on Software Architecture is the premier European conference dedicated to the field of software architecture, covering all architectural aspects of software and service engineering. It is the follow-up of a successful series of European workshops on software architecture held in United Kingdom in 2004 (Springer LNCS 3047 <http://www.springer.com/sgw/cda/frontpage/0,11855,7-40109-22-30733082-0,00.html>), Italy in 2005 (Springer LNCS 3527<http://www.springeronline.com/3-540-69271-1>), and France in 2006 (Springer LNCS 4344 http://www.springeronline.com/3-540-69271-1>). Built on its success, it has evolved into a full-fledged series of European conferences whose first edition is ECSA 2007 in Madrid, Spain.

ECSA 2007 will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to share novel ideas on the foundations, languages, models,
techniques, tools, and applications of software architecture technology. It will include keynotes, research, experience, and challenge papers,
posters, and panels.
