Welcome to WASA 2015

More than a decade ago, the term automotive software engineering was officially introduced in the software community addressing research challenges and technical issues encountering software development in automotive domain. Today automotive vehicles are complex systems with millions of lines of code, dozens of microcontrollers, and intertwined networking system. Self driving cars, (fully) electric vehicles, Car-to-X communications are all enabled by software and new features require more advanced software architecture and engineering approaches suitable for automotive domain.

Therefore, to bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of automotive software engineering, the international workshop on the Workshop on Automotive Software Architectures (WASA) is being organized with the 12th Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture (WICSA) and the 9th CompArch federated conference series, the premier gatherings of software architecture and component based software engineering practitioners and researchers.
