Successful integration and interoperation of components, including commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software, and existing systems has become essential to creating and maintaining responsive systems that meet business and mission goals. Very few organizations can afford to build such large systems of systems from scratch and make it a topic of discussion

In this sixth ICCBSS – we look forward to expanding to issues of interoperability that have become critical for system development and acquisition. New technologies and domains have exploded in growth, along with the complexity and number of systems and systems of systems. We see a wide range of service oriented architectures, migration to network-centric operations, and an increasing application of free and open source software (FOSS). In the Banff Centre – a setting ideally suited to creative activities – we will focus on a wide scope of challenges and approaches—technological and organizational—for constructing, acquiring, deploying, and sustaining software-intensive systems that require interoperation between a wide variety of systems and components.

This Conference will provide a forum in which researchers and practitioners from industry, government, and universities can gather to exchange ideas about current best practices and promising research directions in systems integration and interoperability, including the creation and maintenance of systems that incorporate COTS software products.
