CALL FOR PAPERS

 

Sponsored by AFIS (the French Association for Systems Engineering) and INCOSE, co-organized by Telecom ParisTech, and the Génie Logiciel international quarterly, the 27th edition of the ICSSEA Conference (International Conference on Software & Systems Engineering and their Applications) will be held in Paris on May 25-27, 2016. By gathering actors from across the enterprise and research worlds, it aims at providing a critical survey of the status of tools, methods, and processes for elaborating software & systems.

Original, unpublished papers are solicited. They may concern industrial implementations or experiments, describe significant results from ongoing projects, research results applicable to industrial applications, or deal with socioeconomic issues associated with software & systems engineering. Offerors may also propose tool demonstrations and posters presentations. All submissions should clearly describe the nature of the work to be presented, explain its contribution, highlight its novel features, and state precisely its current status.

All types of systems are eligible: adaptive, autonomous, context-aware, cyber-physical, distributed, embedded, grid computing, mobile, real-time, service-oriented, ubiquitous, Web-based, etc. All end-user domains and economic areas are eligible: information systems, process management, automotive, avionics, banking, defense, energy, health care, insurance, space, telecommunications, transportation, etc.

INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

Submission and selection of proposed interventions will be conducted as follows:

1- Submit, before March 20, 2016.

for industrial implementations and experiments, a text of at least 1000 words (about 5,000 characters, figures excluded), in English, including the title of the paper, an abstract of about 200 words, and the address, phone and fax numbers as well as the email address of the authors. If already available, a complete text (about 20,000 characters) would be welcome.

For applied research results, a text not exceeding the equivalent of 20,000 characters in length (with figures included), in English, including the title of the paper, a 200-500 word summary, and the address, phone and fax numbers as well as the email address of the authors.

For tools demonstrations and posters presentations, a text not exceeding 2 pages

2- Full papers or extended abstracts will be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers and selected by the International Program Committee.

3- Authors of accepted papers or extended papers will be notified by March 26, 2016 and will receive the recommendations made by the International Program Committee.

4- Authors of accepted abstracts or full papers should provide, before May 1rst, 2016, a text not exceeding the equivalent of 20,000 characters in length (with figures included), in the form of a file, in Word format, attached to an electronic message. Final texts will be submitted, for final checking, to the International Program Committee before publication in the Conference Proceedings, which will be available during the event.

5- At least one author is required to register and attend the conference to present the paper
