IEEE International Conference on
Engineering of Complex Computer Systems,
IEEE ICECCS, Florence, Italy, 14-16 April, 2004

ICECCS-2004 Theme: Navigating Complexity in the e-Engineering Age
As society increasingly depends on software, the size and complexity
of software systems continues to grow making them more difficult to
understand and evolve. Manifold dependencies between critical
elements of software now drive software architectures and
increasingly influence the system architecture Complexity of software
systems has grown significantly, pervading several key application
areas including Manufacturing, Communications, Transportation,
Internet, Mobile, Healthcare, Aerospace, and Energy. These systems
are frequently distributed over heterogeneous networks, recently
involving Internet and Intranet technologies. Inundated by temporal
constraints, boundless functionalities, complex algorithms,
distributed and mobile architectures, security constraints,
reliability, high performance, interoperability, and the like, these
complexities are further weighing down development and evolution of
today's software systems and ultimately the organizations they serve.
To cope with complexity, software systems are modeled or specified
using multi-paradigm approaches and require instruments and tools to
visualize and understand. Whether traditional, formal models or more
innovative approaches are employed; these solutions are at the
frontier of the software engineering.
The goal of this conference is to bring together industrial, academic
and government experts, from a variety of user domain and software
disciplines, to examine key complexity problems and effective
solution techniques. Researchers, practitioners, tool developers and
users, and technology transition experts are all welcome. The scope
of the interest includes long-term research, near-term complex system
requirements and promising tools, existing systems, and commercially
available tools.
Topic Areas: 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
includes, but are not limited to:
* System and software architecture and system engineering
* Tools, environments, and languages for complex systems
* Formal methods and approaches to manage and control complex systems
* Integration of heterogeneous technologies
* Software and system development and control processes for complex systems
* Human factors and collaborative aspects
* Interoperability and standardization
* Systems and software safety and security
* Industrial automation, embedded and/or real time systems
* Content production and distribution systems, mobile and multi-channel
* Software complexity visualization
* Virtual environments for managing complexity
Research papers, case studies, lessons learned, status reports, and
discussions of practical problems faced by industry and user domains
are all welcome submissions. For review, submissions are divided
into two
categories: Technical Papers and Experience Reports. All submissions
will be reviewed by program committee members on the basis of
technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity; and those
accepted will
be published in the conference proceedings. Technical papers should
describe original research, and industrial experience should include
practical projects or lessons learned emphasizing outcomes, insights
gained, and lessons learned.
ICECCS 2004 will also feature Panels and Special Sections. Proposals of
1 page length for their organization, should come with the list of
involved people as well as their agreement of cooperation.
Papers, panels and special sections should be submitted electronically
via the Conference Service
by November 1, 2003.
Full submission details will be published on the conference web site.
