ICECCS 2020 : 25th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems
Call For Papers
25th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2020)
28 - 31 October 2020, Singapore
Submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iceccs2020
Submission due: 29 May, 2020
Over the past years, we have seen a rapidly rising emphasis on the design, implementation and management of complex computer systems which are present in every aspect of human activities, such as manufacturing, communications, defence, transportation, aerospace, hazardous environments, energy, and healthcare. The complex computer systems are frequently distributed over heterogeneous networks and process a large amount of data. Complexity arises from many factors, including the dynamic environment and the scenarios these systems operate in; demanding and sometimes conflicting requirements in functionality, efficiency, scalability, security, dependability and adaptability; as well as the large variation in development methodologies, programming languages and implementation details. The key issues in these systems include performance, real-time behaviour, fault tolerance, security, adaptability, development time and cost, and long life concerns.
The goal of this conference is to bring together industrial, academic, and government experts, from a variety of application domains and software disciplines, to discuss how the disciplines' problems and solution techniques interact within the whole system. Researchers, practitioners, tool developers and users, and technology transfer experts are all welcome. The scope of interest includes long-term research issues; near-term requirements and challenges; established complex systems; emerging promising tools; and retrospective and prospective reflections of research and development into complex systems.
ICECCS is an A-ranked international conference by the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia (CORE) 2018 ranking: http://portal.core.edu.au/conf-ranks/646/
List of Topics
Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished research results, case studies and tools.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
+ Model-driven development
+ Reverse engineering and refactoring
+ Software Architecture
+ Big data management
+ Ambient intelligence, pervasive computing
+ Ubiquitous computing, context awareness, sensor networks
+ Applications to SAT/SMT techniques to the analysis of complex systems
+ Design by contract
+ Agile methods
+ Safety-critical and 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
+ 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, e.g., professionals, researchers, managers, and students. A program goal is to organise several sessions that include both academic and industrial papers on a given topic and culminate panels to discuss relationships between industrial and academic research.
Submission and Publication
Full papers are divided into two categories: Technical Papers and Experience Reports. The papers submitted to both categories will be reviewed by the 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 the industry, and reflect on the lessons learnt from them.
Short paper submissions describe early-stage, ongoing or PhD research. All short papers will be reviewed by the program committee members, and accepted short papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Submissions to the conference must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the conference. The proceedings have been published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS) of the IEEE Computer Society.
Submitted manuscripts should be in English and formatted in the style of the double-column CPS format. Full papers should not exceed 10 pages, and short papers should not exceed 6 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 with the CPS guidelines. We invite all prospective authors to submit their manuscripts via the ICECCS 2020 portal, hosted by the EasyChair conference management system.
