The prediction of software quality (e.g. performance, reliability and maintainability) based on software architectures is useful in many software development scenarios, such as support for design decisions, resource dimensioning or scalability analysis.

The open source tool Palladio can be seen as an “software architecture simulator”. Palladio includes a metamodel for specifying software architectures (Palladio Component Model, PCM), a simulator (SimuCom) and a measurement framework (EDP2) to gather simulation data on software performance, resource utilisation and reliability. By its flexible design, extensive documentation, and high number of industrial case studies, Palladio is the ideal platform to be utilised by other developers and scientists to explore further possibilities of modelling and simulating architectures. There are several dimensions of building on Palladio: extending Palladio for specific application domains, such as embedded systems, adding analyses for additional quality metrics (such as maintainability) or using Palladio for non-software architectures (e.g., production plants or logistics).

Therefore, the Palladio Days 2010 have the goal to bring together practitioners using Palladio and researchers who intend to work on Palladio as well as those who drive the Palladio project.

We invite papers presenting plans or results on:

Experience with Palladio:
  • case studies
  • industrial applications
  • etc.
Novel modelling concepts on Palladio
  • modelling embedded systems
  • modelling parallelism
  • etc.
Application of Palladio in non-software domains
  • logistics
  • production plant modelling
  • etc.
Palladio in the software development process
  • agile modelling of architectures
  • SCRUM with architectural modelling
  • etc.
