## ICECCS 2018: Call for Workshop Proposals

The 23rd International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer
Systems (**ICECCS 2018**) will be held in Melbourne, Australia, December
12th to 14th 2018. Complex computer systems are common in many sectors,
including 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 the ICECCS conference series is to bring together
industrial, academic, and government experts, from a variety of
application 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 transfer 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.

For this major event, we are now inviting proposals for workshops. The
purpose of the workshops is to provide an informal setting for workshop
participants to discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas,
present early results, and to discuss and/or demonstrate applications.
These workshops may be driven by fundamental academic interests or by
needs arising from specific application domains. We encourage a
diversity of workshops relating to different aspects of complex systems.

The workshops will be half-day, to be held on December 12th 2018.

The program chairs of each successful proposal will be responsible for
the following:

   * Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for
their workshop.
   * Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference
web page and program, and providing a workshop web page the conference
can refer to for details.
   * Selecting papers for the workshop proceedings and providing camera
ready copies ready for publication.
   * All advertising of the workshop beyond web page advertising.
   * Appointing session chairs, etc.

The local organisation committee of the conference will take care of the
production of informal or electronic workshop proceedings, assuming that
the proceedings are camera ready.
