Call for Papers

International Conference on Embedded Software Systems 2018

The International Conference on Embedded Software and Systems brings together researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to advance the science, engineering, and technology of embedded software development. ICESS is becoming an important venue for research in the design and analysis of software that interacts with physical processes, with a long-standing tradition for results on cyber-physical systems, which compose computation, networking, and physical dynamics.

Successful submissions should contain significant novel ideas and technical results, which have not been published or concurrently submitted to any other venue.

Submitted manuscripts should be written in English conforming to the IEEE conference proceedings format (8.5″ x 11″ page size, two-column, template available here). All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Papers must be submitted for peer review as PDF files through EasyChair.

Papers submitted for review should not be longer than 8 pages in the IEEE conference format indicated earlier. Some papers may be accepted after review as short papers; the camera-ready versions of such papers should normally not exceed 4 pages. Authors of accepted papers (regular-length or short papers) will have the option to pay for up to 2 extra pages at the time of registration.

Accepted papers from this conference will be published and indexed by EI Compendex. Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be considered for possible publication in some special issues of prestigious international journals (SCI- & EI-indexed).
