CALL FOR PAPERS
The Eighteenth IEEE International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2013) The National University of Singapore, 17-19 July 2013. Complex computer systems are common in many sectors, such as manufacturing, communications, defense, transportation, aerospace, hazardous environments, energy, and health care. These systems are frequently distributed over heterogeneous networks, and are driven by many diverse requirements on performance, real-time behavior, fault tolerance, security, adaptability, development time and cost, long life concerns, and other areas. Such requirements frequently conflict, and their satisfaction therefore requires managing the trade-off among them during system development and throughout the entire system life. The goal of this conference is to bring together industrial, academic, and government experts, from a variety of user domains and software disciplines, to determine how the disciplines' problems and solution techniques interact within the whole system. Researchers, practitioners, tool developers and users, and technology transition experts are all welcome. The scope of interest includes long-term research issues, near-term complex system requirements and promising tools, existing complex systems, and commercially available tools.
SCOPE AND TOPICS
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished research results, case studies and toolsed research results, case studies and tools. Papers are solicited in all areas related to complex computer-based systems, including the causes of complexity and means of avoiding, controlling, or coping with complexity. Topic areas include, but are not limited to:
Requirement specification and analysis
Verification and validation
Security and privacy of complex systems
Reverse engineering and refactoring
Big Data Management
Ambient intelligence, pervasive computing
Ubiquitous computing, context awareness, sensor networks
Design by contract
Safety-critical & fault-tolerant architectures
Adaptive, self-managing and multi-agent systems
Real-time, hybrid and embedded systems
Systems of systems
Tools and tool integration
Industrial case studies
Different kinds of contributions are sought, including novel research, lessons learned, experience reports, and discussions of practical problems faced by industry and user domains. The ultimate goal is to build a rich and comprehensive conference program that can fit the interests and needs of different classes of attendees: professionals, researchers, managers, and students. A program goal is to organize several sessions that include both academic and industrial papers on a given topic and culminate panels to discuss relationships between industrial and academic research. Papers are divided into two categories: Technical Papers and Experience Reports. The papers submitted to both categories will be reviewed by program committee members, and papers accepted in either category will be published in the conference proceedings. Technical papers should describe original research, and industrial experience reports should describe practical projects carried out in industry, and reflect on the lessons learnt from them.
Full papers are divided into two categories: Technical Papers and Experience Reports. The papers submitted to both categories will be reviewed by program committee members, and papers accepted in either category will be published in the conference proceedings. Technical papers should describe original research, and experience reports should present practical projects carried out in industry, and reflect on the lessons learnt from them.
Poster paper submissions should specify in their abstract whether they describe ongoing or PhD research. Both types of poster papers will be reviewed by program committee members, and accepted posters will be published in the conference proceedings.
Submitted manuscripts should be in English and formatted in the style of the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Format. Papers should not exceed 10 pages for full papers and 2 pages for poster papers, including figures, references, and appendices. All submissions should be in PDF format. Submissions not adhering to the specified format and length may be rejected immediately, without review.
