*** First Call for Papers ***

5th European Conference on the Engineering of Computer Based Systems

ECBS 2017

Lordos Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus

31 August - 1 September, 2017

In Cooperation with ACM SIGAPP, SIGOPS and SIGSOFT

ECBS 2017 is a formal meeting dedicated to formulating and advancing
methods, techniques, and tools for engineering of computer-based systems.
The conference is devoted to the design, development, deployment, and
analysis of the complex systems whose behavior is largely determined or
controlled by computers. Such systems are characterized by functional,
performance, and reliability requirements that mandate the tight integration
of information processing and physical processes.

ECBS integrates software, hardware, and communication perspective of
system engineering through its many facets that include system modeling,
requirements specification, simulation, architectures, safety, security,
reliability, human-computer interaction, system integration, verification and
validation, high performance/parallel computing, cloud-based technologies,
and project management. The conference provides a bridge between industry
and academia, blending academic research and industrial development.

The proceedings will be published in the International Conference
Proceedings Series of ACM and after the conference they will be accessible in
the ACM Digital Library. A Best Paper Award will be presented to the best
paper presented at the conference, and a Best Student Paper Award will be
presented to the best paper written solely or mostly by students.


Papers are sought which reflect this intent in fundamental ECBS technologies
and application domains including, but not limited to the following topics:

 Agile and Lean Approaches and Human Aspects of Software Development
 Advanced Modularity
 Cloud-based Applications
 Component-Based System Design
 Cyber-Physical Systems
 Parallel & Distributed Systems
 Parallel Programming Methodologies and Languages
 FPGA Systems Design
 ECBS Infrastructure (Tools and Environments)
 Education and Training
 Embedded Real-Time Software Systems
 Integration Engineering
 Lifecycle Processes and Process Evolution
 Model-Based System Development
 Modeling and Analysis of Complex Systems
 Networked Control Systems
 Reengineering & Reuse
 Reliability, Safety, Dependability, and Security
 Software Engineering
 System Assessment, Testing, and Metrics
 Verification and Validation

Industrial reports of practical solutions, trends, and new system
characteristics for ECBS, taking an integrated systems approach, are
particularly welcome. They may target application domains such as:
Aerospace Systems, Command and Control, Continuous and Discrete
Manufacturing, Environmental Systems, Instrumentation and Control
Applications, Internet Technology and Applications, Intelligent Highway-
Vehicle Systems (IHVS), Medical Systems, High Performance Computing
Development Environments and Applications, and Telecommunications.

Submission of Papers

The conference solicits regular (no more than 10 pages) and short papers (no
more than 4 pages). The Program Committee may require an accepted paper
to be adapted into a short paper or extended abstract (no more than 2 pages
and poster presentation only). All papers must be prepared according to the
ACM SIG Proceedings Template format (see the conference web site for
further information). The papers must be original contributions not submitted
or accepted for publication elsewhere. A submitted contribution should
clearly indicate the conference topics it targets. For an accepted contribution
to be included in the proceedings, at least one author must register and
present the paper at the conference. For further information, see the
submission guidelines on the conference web site.
