The 7th IEEE International Conference on Composition-Based Software Systems provides a premier international forum for researchers, educators, industrial practitioners and students to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, experiences and concerns in Composition-Based Software Systems development. ICCBSS 08 focuses on Composition-Based Software Systems (CBSS) development paradigm that ‘weaves’ existing or custom-developed systems, COTS-software components, leased or rented applications and service oriented systems into composite system-of-systems and explained in https://prime-essay.net/ Systems development processes will change as the envisioned hybrid system-of-systems will need to be dynamically constructed, configured and integrated on-demand with the resulting composite systems designed to cope with dynamic and evolving systems and user requirements. ICCBSS08 places particular emphasis on weaving composite systems, their interoperability and integrability.
Professor Ian Sommerville has worked for many years with social scientists and was amongst the first computer scientists to explore how information from ethnographic studies of work could be used to inform system specification and design. He is the author of a widely used textbook on software engineering which was first published in 1982 and which is now in its 8th edition.
