*** First Call for Papers ***

28th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems
(ICECCS 2024)

June 19-21, 2024, 5* St. Raphael Resort and Marina, Limassol, Cyprus


(*** Submission Deadline: December 8, 2023 AoE ***)

Recent years have witnessed a rapidly rising emphasis on the design, implementation and
management of complex computer systems which are present in every aspect of human
activities, such as manufacturing, communications, defence, transportation, aerospace,
hazardous environments, energy, and healthcare. These complex systems are frequently
distributed over heterogeneous networks and process a large amount of data, leveraging
emerging artificial intelligence (AI), large language models, and machine learning techniques.
Complexity arises from many factors, including the dynamic environment and the scenarios
these systems operate in, demanding and sometimes conflicting requirements in functionality,
efficiency, scalability, security, dependability and adaptability, data heterogeneity, as well as
the wide range of development methodologies, programming languages and implementation
details. Performance, real-time behaviour, fault tolerance, robustness, security, adaptability,
development time and cost, and long life concerns are some of the key issues arising in the
development of such systems.

The International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS) is a
well-established event that has been held around the world for over 25 years. The goal of this
conference is to bring together industrial, academic, and government experts from a variety of
application domains and software disciplines, to discuss how the disciplines’ problems and
solution techniques interact within the whole system. Researchers, practitioners, tool
developers and users, and technology transfer experts are all welcome. The scope of the
conference includes long-term research issues, near-term requirements and challenges,
established complex systems, emerging promising tools, and retrospective and prospective
reflections of research and development into complex systems.


Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished research results, case
studies and tools. 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 include, but are not limited to:

Requirements, modeling and formal methods
• Requirements analysis and specification
• Model-driven development
• Model checking
• SAT/SMT solvers for software analysis and testing

AI, Complex intelligent models and complex systems
• Big data management
• Data-drive and AI-backed systems
• Machine learning for Software Engineering
• AI4SE and SE4AI
• Adaptive, self-managing and multi-agent systems

Security, reliability and dependability
• Safety-critical and fault-tolerant architectures
• Formal methods
• Security and privacy of complex systems
• Privacy-preserving AI
• Fairness

Software engineering
• Verification and validation
• Reverse engineering and refactoring
• Software architecture
• Human Machine Interaction
• Agile methods

Realistic complex systems
• Ubiquitous computing, context awareness, sensor networks
• Cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things (IoT)
• Autonomous systems and self-healing systems
• Industrial case studies

Different kinds of contributions are sought, including novel research, lessons learned,
experience reports, and discussions of practical problems faced by industry and user domains.
The ultimate goal is to build a rich and comprehensive conference program that can fit the
interests and needs of different classes of attendees: professionals, researchers, managers,
and students. A program goal is to organize several sessions that include both academic and
industrial papers on a given topic and culminate panels to discuss relationships between
industrial and academic research.


Full papers are divided into two categories: Technical Papers and Experience Reports. The
papers submitted to both categories will be reviewed by the program committee members,
and papers accepted in either category will be published in the conference proceedings.

Technical papers should describe original research, and experience reports should present
practical projects carried out in the industry, and reflect on the lessons learnt from them.
Short paper submissions describe early-stage, ongoing or PhD research. All short papers will
be reviewed by the program committee members, and accepted short papers will be published
in the conference proceedings.

Submissions to the conference must not have been published or be concurrently considered
for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be judged on the basis of originality,
contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the conference.
The proceedings have been published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS) of the IEEE
Computer Society.

Submitted manuscripts should be in English and formatted in the style of the double-column
IEEE CPS format. Full papers should not exceed 9 pages + 1 page for bibliography, and short
papers should not exceed 5 pages + 1 page for bibliography, including figures, references,
and appendices. All submissions should be in PDF format. Submissions not adhering to the
specified format and length may be rejected immediately without review.

Please prepare your manuscripts in accordance with the IEEE CPS guidelines.

We invite all prospective authors to submit their manuscripts via the ICECCS 2024 portal,
hosted by the EasyChair conference management system.
