Welcome to SODA 2017

SODA aims at offering a venue for researchers, practitioners and educators within the software architecture domain to jointly discuss experiences, forge new collaborations, and discuss innovative solutions in this area. Also, in contrast to other venues, this workshop focuses on the architect, the surrounding organization, and the process rather than rather than the “architecture”—the output.

To increase our understanding of the social and organizational context in which architects operate, this first edition of the workshop focuses on two aspects: (1) tasks performed and skills required from architects; (2) the social and organizational context of the architect.

SODA 2017 will be held in conjunction with the International Conference on Software Architecture (ICSA) in Gothenburg, Sweden on April 4, 2017.
