Mary Poppendieck, award-winning author and expert on Lean software development, will deliver a keynote address at the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute’s annual software architecture conference. The SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) 2013 Conference, which will be held April 29 through May 3, 2013, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will feature three keynote addresses by leaders in the field of software architecture.
Here is a press release announcing Mary Poppendieck’s keynote address at SATURN.

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and service-oriented systems, which are built using the SOA paradigm, are now in the stage of widespread adoption, at least according to Gartner’s Hype Cycle of Emerging Technologies. Due to the fact that some of the standards for service integration have stabilized, and driven by IT cost savings, organizations are starting to incorporate external software services into their systems, some of which are hosted in the cloud. From a provider perspective, many commercial companies such as Oracle, SAP, Intuit, and Netflix either have cloud-based offerings of their products or run their business completely in the cloud.
The special theme of the 5th edition of the PESOS workshop is “Service Engineering for the Cloud.” Cloud Computing is shaping the way that organizations acquire and use systems — software-as-a-service (SaaS) model — and how they develop and deploy systems — platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) models. Even though cloud platforms and infrastructures are typically designed to scale on demand, the question is whether this automatic elasticity translates to all services deployed on them.

To help developers make the most of the Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL), two SEI researchers published Model-Based Engineering with AADL (Addison-Wesley Professional 2012), about which we blogged here in October.
The book has been selected for Intel Corporation’s Recommended Reading List for the first half of 2013.
Our Recommended Reading Program provides technical professionals a simple and handy reference list of what to read to stay abreast of new technologies. Dozens of industry technologists, corporate fellows, and engineers have helped by suggesting books and reviewing the list. This is the most comprehensive reading list available for professional computer Developers.
International Workshop on the Engineering of Mobile-Enabled Systems (MOBS 2013)
Co-located with the 35th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2013)
May 25, 2013 — San Francisco, CA USA
Submission Deadline: February 7, 2013
Acceptance Notification: February 28, 2013

Mobile apps are becoming important parts of enterprise and mission-critical systems that make use of contextual information to optimize resource usage and drive business and operational processes. Mobile technology is also reaching people in the field across multiple domains to help with various tasks such as speech and image recognition, natural language processing, decision-making, and mission planning.
Fourth International Workshop on Managing Technical Debt at ICSE 2013
San Francisco, California, May 20, 2013
Submission deadline: February 7, 2013
On May 20, 2013, we will be organizing a workshop in conjunction with the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2013) in San Francisco to scrutinize the diverse issues that are related to technical debt and the software development lifecycle. We invite practitioners and researchers to join us in discussing early findings, future directions, experiences, and results. We are seeking papers on practical experience with technical debt, and approaches to evaluate and manage technical debt. The details of the call for papers and other logistics are at our workshop site.

Call for Research Papers
17th International Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2013)
26-30 August 2013
SPLC, the premier forum where practitioners, researchers and educators can present and discuss the most recent ideas, innovations, trends, experiences, and concerns in the area of software product lines and software product family engineering invites you to come to Tokyo Japan.
We invite a range of topics related to software product line engineering, both traditional and those that have not yet been addressed.
Here is the third in our series of blog posts at the SEI blog that provides lightly edited transcripts of remarks by SATURN 2012 panelists on the theme of “Reflections on 20 Years of Software Architecture.” The session was moderated by Rick Kazman of the SEI, and panelists were Linda Northrop of the SEI, Doug Schmidt of Vanderbilt University, Ian Gorton of Pacific Northwest National Lab, Robert Schwanke of Siemens Corporate Research, and Jeromy Carriere of X.commerce/eBay.
Read the third in the series, Reflections on 20 Years of Software Architecture: A Presentation by Robert Schwanke, who reflected on four general problems in software architecture: modularity, systems of systems, maintainable architecture descriptions, and system architecture.

The SATURN Conference leadership has developed a set of guidelines that the SATURN 2013 Program Committee will use to evaluate submissions and to assemble a high-quality technical program. This information is meant to enable everyone who submits to see the criteria that will be used to select presentations for the technical program.
Mahadev Satyanarayanan, professor of computer science from Carnegie Mellon University, will give a keynote at the upcoming federated CompArch 2013 conference to be held June 17–21, 2013 in Vancouver BC, Canada on the campus of the University of British Columbia.
In line with the theme “The System View” of the federated conference on the Quality of Software Architectures (QoSA 2013), Satya will discuss the impact of mobility on system architecture. He will talk about the core challenges of mobile computing, and show how these challenges have dominated the evolution of system architectures. Looking ahead, he will make the case for an intermediate architectural tier arising from the convergence of mobile and cloud computing.
