Call For Papers

VI Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering
November 1-4, 2016, Tropical Tambaú Hotel, João Pessoa, Paraíba, Brazil

The Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering (SBESC) is an initiative
of the research community originally associated with three events, the Operating Systems
Workshop (WSO), the Embedded Systems Workshop (WSE), and the Real-Time Systems
Workshop (WTR), that got together having identified a strong synergy between these areas,
also motivated by the fact that designing computing systems is an increasingly multidisciplinary
task. Since the first edition, the event holds the Embedded Systems School (ESSE) and since
2013, the Brazilian Conference on Critical Embedded Systems (CBSEC) also joined SBESC.
The symposium is supported by the Especial Committee on Computing Systems Engineering
(CE-ESC) of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC).


Modern computing systems are becoming increasingly diversified. Nowadays we hear about
Systems of Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, Ubiquitous Systems, Internet of Things, and
so on. Many of these systems are embedded, many are subject to real-time constraints and
most of them run an operating system. In this context, the term Computing Systems Engineering
involves techniques related to the safe, correct, and deadline-compliant development of such

Topics of Interest:

- Applications (including Automotive, Avionics, and Aerospace)
- Control and Automation
- Design Methodologies, Languages, and Tools
- Distributed Systems
- Electronic System Level, Synthesis, and Co-design
- Fault Tolerance and Dependability
- Formal Methods and Verification
- Internet of Things, Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
- Multiprocessor/Multicore/Manycore Systems
- Networking and Communication Protocols
- Performance Evaluation and Optimization
- Power, Energy and Thermal Aware Systems
- Quality of Service
- Resource Management
- Run-time Support Systems (including Virtualization, Storage, and File Systems)
- Scheduling and Schedulability Analysis Security
- Verification, Validation and Test of Systems
- Wireless Sensor Networks
- Worst-Case Execution Time Analysis

Paper Submission:

Prospective authors are invited to submit original research papers for presentation at the symposium.
Papers can be written in English, Portuguese, or Spanish, must be formatted according with the
IEEE two-columns symposium template, and the resulting PDF must not exceed 8 pages. Online
submissions through SBC's submission service only.

Note to authors:
All accepted papers will be initially published online at the symposium web site. Full
papers written in English and presented at the symposium will be subsequently published by Conference
Publishing Services (CPS) and submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore and submitted to indexing
services. From these, those with the highest review ranks will be invited to prepare an extended
version for consideration of partner journals (all confirmed): ACM SIGOPS Operating System Review,
Springer Journal on Design Automation for Embedded Systems, Elsevier Journal on Science of Computer
Programming. Copyright will be handled by SBC for papers in Portuguese and by IEEE for papers in English.

Important Dates:

Paper submission: Jul 18, 2016 (BRT)
Notification of acceptance: Sep 5, 2016
Final version of the papers: Oct 3, 2016
Symposium: Nov 1-4, 2016


João Pessoa city was founded in 1585 and is known as the city where the sun rises first, because it is
the easternmost city in the Americas. It is also famous for being considered the 2nd greenest city in
the world. The city has multiple beaches along 30 km of warm and crystal water, and the mixture of
modern and historical baroque monuments is another tourist attraction.
