These are the proceedings of the 11th International Workshop on Formal Engineering approaches to Software Components and Architectures (FESCA). The workshop was held on April 12th, 2014 in Grenoble (France) as a satellite event to the European Joint Conference on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS'14).
The aim of the FESCA workshop is to bring together both young and senior researchers from formal methods, software engineering, and industry interested in the development and application of formal modelling approaches as well as associated analysis and reasoning techniques with practical benefits for component-based software engineering.
Component-based software design has received considerable attention in industry and academia in the past decade. In recent years, with the emergence of new platforms (such as smartphones), new areas advocating software correctness along with new challenges have appeared. These include development of new methods and adapting existing ones to accommodate unique features of the platforms, such as inherent distribution, openness, and continuous migration. On the other hand, with the growing power of computers, more and more is possible with respect to practical applicability of modelling and specification methods as well as verification tools to real-life software, i.e, to scale to more complex systems.
FESCA aims to address the open question of how formal methods can be applied effectively to these new contexts and challenges. The workshop is interested in both the development and application of formal methods in component-based development and tries to cross-fertilize their research and application.
The previous FESCA workshops at ETAPS 2004 to 2013 enjoyed high-quality submissions and attracted a number of recognized guest speakers, including Raffaela Mirandola (Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione, Politecnico di Milano, Italy), Rolf Hennicker (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, München, Germany), Constance L. Heitmeyer (Naval Research Laboratory, USA), Manfred Broy, (Technische Universität München, Germany), Jose Luiz Fiadeiro, (University of Leicester, UK), František Plášil (Charles University, Czech Republic), Martin Wirsing (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, München, Germany), Ivana Černá (Masaryk University, Czech Republic), Samuel Kounev (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, Germany), and Vittorio Cortellessa (Department of Computer Science and Engineering, and Mathematics, University of L'Aquila, Italy).

The papers were refereed by the program committee and by several outside referees, whose help is gratefully acknowledged.
For the eleventh time, FESCA has been organized as a satellite event to ETAPS. We are very grateful to the ETAPS organizers for taking care of all the local organization and for accommodating all our special requests.
