Dear colleague,

Please find attached a copy of the call for papers for a conference in
Tokyo.  I hope that you might find it interesting.

I apologise if you receive this message more than once.

Best regards,

                     Engineers of Japan (IEICE)
                     Software Engineering Association of Japan

Supported by: IEICE Communications Society Technical Committee on
              Network Revolution and Software (approval pending)

Invited speakers: John A. McDermid, University of York, UK

DESCRIPTION: IEEE Computer Society's Sixth International Conference on 
the Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2000) is to be held in 
Boissonade Tower, Ichigaya Campus, Hosei University, Tokyo, Japan. 

SCOPE: Complex computer systems are common in many sectors, such as
manufacturing, communications, defense, transportation, aerospace,
hazardous environments, energy, and health care.  These systems are
frequently distributed over heterogeneous networks, and are driven by many
diverse requirements on performance, real-time behavior, fault tolerance,
security, adaptability, development time and cost, long life concerns, and
other areas.  Such requirements frequently conflict, and their satisfaction
therefore requires managing the trade-off among them during system
development and throughout the entire system life.  

The goal of this conference is to bring together industrial, academic, and 
government experts, from a variety of user domains and software disciplines, 
to determine how the disciplines' problems and solution techniques interact
within the whole system.  Researchers, practitioners, tool developers and
users, and technology transition experts are all welcome.  The scope of
interest includes long-term research issues, near-term complex system
requirements and promising tools, existing complex systems, and
commercially available 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:
- - System and Software Architecture and Systems Engineering
- - Tools, Environments, and Languages for Complex Systems
- - Complex Data Management, including Distributed, Real-Time, and Mobile
- - Formal Methods and Approaches to Achieving Dependability in Complex
- - Integration of Heterogeneous Technologies
- - Software and System Development Processes for Complex Systems
- - Human Factors and Collaborative ("Groupware") Aspects
- - Interoperability and Standardization
- - System and Software Safety and Security 

SESSION ORGANIZATION: Different kinds of contributions are sought,
including research papers, lessons learned, status reports, and discussion
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. 

PAPER SUBMISSIONS: Papers are divided into two categories: Technical 
Papers and Industrial Experience Reports. The papers submitted to both 
categories will be reviewed by program committee members, and papers accepted 
in either category will be published in the conference proceedings. Technical 
papers should describe original research, and industrial experience reports
should describe practical projects carried out in industry, and
reflect on the lessons learnt from them. Submitted manuscripts should be in 
English and no longer than 5000 words or 20 double-spaced pages. Each 
submission should include submission category, a cover page containing title, 
all authors' names, affiliations, and complete mail and electronic mail 
addresses, together with a maximum 200 word abstract and keyword list. 

Authors of accepted papers must sign a copyright release form.  IEEE
Computer Society Press will publish the proceedings. Final versions of
accepted papers will be limited to 11 pages in the IEEE proceedings format
described at http://computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm.

SUBMISSION FORM: Electronic submission is encouraged, but hardcopy
submissions will also be accepted.  Electronic submissions may be in PDF or
portable PostScript only; word processor files will not be accepted.
If the authors are not able to submit electronically, 6 paper copies may be
submitted. All submissions, electronic or paper, are to be submitted to
the Publication Chair:

2-17-1 Fujimi-cho Chiyoda-Ku, Tokyo, 102-8160, Japan 
Email: yamamoto at i.hosei.ac.jp

PANEL PROPOSALS: Panel proposals (maximum 2 pages) should describe the
topic and format, and include a list of panelists who have agreed to
participate if the panel is accepted.  Panel proposals should be submitted
by electronic mail to yamamoto at i.hosei.ac.jp.

SPECIAL SESSIONS: Special sessions on various focused topics will be
organized at ICECCS 2000. If you are interested in organizing a special 
session please send a proposal including an outline of a topic, number of
papers, etc. to SPECIAL SESSION CHAIR. All papers
related to your session will be sent to you after due date for
submission. You will be responsible for selecting the papers based on
three independent reviews and chairing special session at ICECCS 2000. 
2 page abstracts of the accepted papers will be included in the conference 
proceedings. The Network Software Workshop will be planned as a 
special session of ICECCS 2000. The proceedings of the Network Software 
Workshop will be freely distributed to all participants of ICECCS 2000. 
The details of this workshop can be seen in 

POSTER PRESENTATIONS: Poster presentations are encouraged for people who
wish to receive peer feedback, and practical examples of applied research are
particularly welcome. Papers are sent to EXHIBITS CHAIR. Poster sessions
will allow the presentation and discussion of respective papers. 2 
page abstracts of the selected papers will also be included in the conference 

INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITS: ICECCS 2000 will provide industrial exhibitors an
opportunity to present their state-of-the-art systems, development tools, 
and applications. This opportunity will also allow exhibitors to exchange 
ideas with leading researchers from all around the world, and to make new 
contacts for future interactions or consulting. Proposals for exhibits are 

TUTORIALS: Proposals should be submitted to TUTORIAL CHAIR.

IMPORTANT DATES (In the year 2000):

January 31 - Deadline for submission of special session proposals.
March 27 - Deadline for submission of papers, panel proposals, and tutorial
May 10 - Deadline for submission of proposals for exhibits.
