Call For Papers
21th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2016)
|| November 6-8, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Over the past several years, we have seen a rapid rising emphasis on design, implement and manage complex computer systems to help us deal with an increasingly volatile, globalised complex world. These systems are critical for dealing with the Grand Challenge problems we are facing in the 21st century, including health care, urbanization, education, energy, finance, and job creation. The complex computer systems are frequently distributed over heterogeneous networks and processing large amount data. Performance, real-time behavior, fault tolerance, security, adaptability, development time and cost, long life concerns are the key issues.
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
We invite contributions in what concerns the following areas (please keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list):
+ Requirement specification and analysis
+ Verification and validation
+ Security and privacy of complex systems
+ Model-driven development
+ Reverse engineering and refactoring
+ Architecture software
+ Big Data Management
+ Ambient intelligence, pervasive computing
+ Ubiquitous computing, context awareness, sensor networks
+ Design by contract
+ Agile methods
+ Safety-critical & fault-tolerant architectures
+ Adaptive, self-managing and multi-agent systems
+ Real-time, hybrid and embedded systems
+ Systems of systems
+ Cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things (IoT)
+ Tools and tool integration
+ Past reflections and future outlooks
+ 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.
### Full Papers
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.
### Short Papers
Short paper submissions describe early-stage, ongoing or PhD research. All short papers will be reviewed by program committee members, and accepted short papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
## Paper Submissions
Submitted manuscripts should be in English and formatted in the style of the double-column IEEE ormat. Full papers should not exceed 10 pages, and short papers should not exceed 4 pages, 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.
Please prepare your manuscripts in accordance to the IEEE guidelines:
We invite all prospective authors to submit their manuscripts via the ICECCS'16 portal, hosted on Easychair:
## Conference proceeding
The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Conference Publishing Services (EI indexed).
