IEEE ICESS 2015 Call for Papers

As the fastest growing industry, embedded systems have great societal and environmental impacts. Embedded software and systems have been crucial to our daily life, ranging from smart appliances to unmanned trains/vehicles. Therefore, the design and implementation of safe and efficient embedded software and systems have utmost importance. IEEE ICESS is an international forum for researchers and developers from academia, industry and government to present and discuss the science, engineering, technology and emerging ideas and trends of embedded software and systems.

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

    Past History

    The ICESS-2015 conference is the next event in a series of highly successful international conferences on embedded software and systems, held as ICESS 2014 (Paris, France, August 2014), ICESS 2013 (Sydney, Australia, December 2013), ICESS 2012(Liverpool, England, UK, June 2012), ICESS 2011 (Changsha, China, November 2011), ICESS 2010 (Bradford, UK, July 2010), ICESS 2009 (Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China, May 2009), etc.


    The accepted papers from this conference will be published by IEEE Computer Society in IEEE proceedings (indexed by EI Compendex). Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be considered for possible publication in several SCI & EI indexed special issues of prestigious international journals. By submitting a paper to the conference, authors assure that if the paper is accepted, at least one author will attend the conference and present the paper.
