                       CALL FOR PAPERS

The 23rd International Conference on Engineering Complex Systems
                         *ICECCS 2018*

12-14 December 2018 - Melbourne, Australia


Important Dates (AoE time)

Abstract submission: 15th June 2018
Paper submission: 22nd June 2018
Notification of acceptance: 22th August 2018
Camera ready copy due: 21th September 2017

We have seen a rapid rising emphasis on design, implement and manage
complex computer
systems which are present in every aspect of human activities, such as
communications, defense, transportation, aerospace, hazardous
environments, energy,
and health care. The complex computer systems are frequently distributed
over heterogeneous
networks and processing large amount data. Complexity arises from many
including the dynamic environments and scenarios these systems operate
in; demanding and
sometimes conflicting requirements in functionality, efficiency,
scalability, security,
dependability, inoperability  and adaptability; as well as the large
variation in
development methodology, programming languages and implementation
details. The key issues
in these systems include performance, real-time behavior, 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.

Scope and 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Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished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
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
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 CPS
format. 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 CPS guidelines:

We invite all prospective authors to submit their manuscripts via the
ICECCS'18 portal,
hosted on EasyChair

Conference Proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing
Services (CPS) and
submitted for EI indexing.
