The twentieth International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2015) will be held in the Gold Coast, Australia, 9-12 December, 2015.

Complex computer systems are present in every aspect of human activities, ranging from construction, communications, defense, finance, health care, manufacturing and transportation. Complexity arises from many factors, including the dynamic environments and scenarios these systems operate in; demanding and sometimes conflicting requirements in functionality, efficiency, scalability, security, dependability and adaptability; as well as the large variation in development methodology, programming languages and implementation details. 

This twentieth edition of the ICECCS conference series aims 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 interest 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Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished research results, case studies and tools.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 causes of complexity and means of measuring, avoiding, controlling, or coping with complexity. Topic areas include, but are not limited to:
* Requirement specification and analysis
* Verification and validation
* Security and privacy of complex systems
* Model-driven development
* Reverse engineering and refactoring
* Software architecture
* Big data management
* Ambient intelligence, pervasive computing
* Ubiquitous computing, context awareness, sensor networks
* Design by contract
* Agile methods
* Safety-critical & fault-tolerant architectures
* Adaptive, self-managing and multi-agent systems
* Real-time, hybrid and embedded systems
* Systems of systems
* Cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things (IoT)
* Tools and tool integration
* Past reflections and future outlooks
* Industrial case studies

Different types 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 of the conference is to build a rich and comprehensive conference program that can fit the interests and needs of its attendees: practitioners, 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 program committee members, and papers accepted in either category will be published in the conference proceedings. Technical papers should describe original research. Experience reports should describe practical projects carried out in industry, and reflect on the lessons learned from them.


Short paper submissions should specify in their abstract whether they describe ongoing or PhD research. Both types of short papers will be reviewed by program committee members, and accepted short papers will be published in the conference proceedings.


Submitted manuscripts should be in English and formatted in the style of the 2-column IEEE Conference Publishing Services (CPS) Proceedings Format. Papers should not exceed 10 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers, 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.

Detailed instructions on paper formatting and submission can be found on the Submission page.

All submissions should be made through the Easychair Website:


A special issue for selected papers of ICECCS'15 is planned in the journal "Innovations in Systems and Software Engineering" (https://www.springer.com/computer/swe/journal/11334).
