Call for Papers

1st Eastern European Regional Conference on the Engineering of Computer Based Systems (ECBS-EERC 2009)

with the technical co-sponsorship of the IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee on ECBS

September 7-8, 2009
At the Master Center, Novi Sad, Serbia
Hosted by the University of Novi Sad

"Setting New ECBS Frontiers..."

ECBS-EERC was established at the ECBS 2008 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, to allow ECBS academics and practitioners in Eastern Europe to assemble, present papers, and produce a conference publication. The main goal is to provide Рэдиссон прогулки по Москве реке professional conference opportunity for Eastern Europeans and still keep the meeting costs attractive. Conference proceedings are published on a CD.

ECBS-EERC 2009 will be the 1st formal IEEE sponsored meeting dedicated to formulating and advancing methods, techniques and tools for the engineering of computer-based systems in the Eastern European Region. The conference is devoted to the design, development, deployment, and analysis of 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 has many facets that include system modeling, requirements specification, simulation, architectures, communications, safety, security, reliability, software, hardware, human computer interfacing, system integration, verification and validation, and project management. Effectively, ECBS integrates several disciplines, including software, hardware, and communications, into a complete systems engineering approach.

The conference provides a bridge between industry and academia, blending academic research and industrial developments. Papers are sought which reflect this theme, in fundamental ECBS technologies, or application domains, as listed below.

  • Adaptive Computing
  • Agile Development
  • Architectures
  • Autonomic Systems
  • Co-design
  • Component-Based System Design
  • Design Evolution
  • Distributed Systems Design
  • ECBS Infrastructure (Tools, Environments)
  • Education & Training
  • Embedded Real-Time Software Systems
  • Lifecycle Processes & Process Evolution
  • Integration Engineering
  • Model-Based System Development
  • Modelling and Analysis of Complex Systems
  • Open Systems
  • Product-Families Models and Architectures
  • Reengineering & Reuse
  • Reliability, Safety, Dependability, Security Requirements Elicitation and Analysis
  • Standards
  • System on a Chip
  • System Assessment, Testing and Metrics
  • Verification & Validation

Reports of practical solutions, trends and new system characteristics for ECBS, taking an integrated systems approach, may include 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, and Telecommunications.
