_** EnSEmble 2018 **–** First International Workshop on Ensemble-based Software Engineering**_
4th November, 2018, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, United States

Held in conjunction with the 26th ACM Joint European Software Engineering Conference and Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering (ESEC/FSE)

Workshop paper submissions due: July 27th, 2018
Notification to authors: August 24th, 2018
Camera-ready copies due: September 18th, 2018

Contemporary and future software systems are composed of large-scale ensembles of widely distributed, largely autonomous and heterogeneous entities situated in both the physical world and in back-end computer systems.
From software development perspective, the world of computing is shifting from the era of single device computing to a new era where literally everything (Services, Things and People) is interconnected, online, and programmable. We are therefore increasingly looking at, and building, emergent and adaptive socio-technical applications built on top of large-scale decentralized distributed computing systems. The lessons learned in distributed software management have led to the idea of a micro-service-based architectural style derived from the concept of web services, flows, and message exchange. These concepts are not only used in large systems, but become common practice in all types of applications, even the smallest, applications involving smart things.

The goal of this workshop is to bring the attention of researchers and practitioners of the software engineering to the opportunities and challenges involved in new trend and issue related to software architecting. The workshop aims to present and discuss latest ongoing research as well as radical new research directions in engineering modern and future software application involving several and heterogeneous domains.
The aim is to analyze and propose new paradigms of software distributed software platform, including sharing and reuse of everything: people, objects, and services, but also sharing of economy aspect of these entities.
Main relevant content should comprise concepts of community: the main activity of services is to create and manage, characterized by sociality, economic advantage, efficiency of service, comfort, and so on. There is a bilateral and continuous relationship between different categories of end-user.
Business services are no longer paid from top to bottom, but people are meeting to exchange or share assets, time, money, etc. So the goods are owned by people and not by companies. This new high-level perspective on the sharing of services requires and asks for new technologies, requirements and style to be implemented.
Finally, people experience advantages derived from sharing of everything reaching the satisfaction of requirements that are both architectural as far as the design is concerned and non-functional concerning economical, experiential, efficiency, and other proper category depending on the specific domain and typology of involved things.

Topics of interested include but are not limited to:

  *   Engineering web of things and of everything
  *   Software architectural styles and patterns for connecting objects, devices and services
  *   Engineering new paradigm for software architecture
  *   The Emerging Paradigms: Fog and Edge Computing
  *   Liquid software
  *   Challenges for distributed application
  *   Architectures and Framework for smart devices connection
  *   Microservices and distributed software models
  *   Architecture for adaptive systems
  *   Optimization and Decision-making approaches
  *   Scalability and Performance analysis
  *   Languages, platforms, APIs and other tools for Ensembles
  *   Internet of events (people, things, content, object)
  *   Sustainable software engineering
  *   Emerging paradigms of software platform: crowdfunding, crowdsourcing
  *   Sharing economy: reuse, sharing and reusing
  *   Scenarios, case studies, and experience reports of Ensembles in different contexts (e.g., Smart Mobility, Smart Energy/Smart Grid, Smart Buildings, Emergency, etc..)
  *   Applications and tools behaving in shared economy environment and domains: Crowdfunding, car sharing, house-sharing, coworking

Workshop papers are: 8 pages long and peer-reviewed; 4 pages for demo-paper describing existing tools or prototypes.
Submission of papers in ACM Master article template, should be submitted as a single PDF file in the EasyChair system [https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ensemble2018].
Submissions will be judged on novelty, relevance, clarity of presentation, and correctness. Authors of accepted submissions are
required to present their work.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published in ACM Digital Library.
