The 26th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems

26 - 30 March 2022 - Hiroshima , Japan

Welcome to the website of the 26th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2022)

Since it was started in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA in 1995, ICECCS has provided a forum for both researchers and practitioners to discuss and exchange their experience and results in research on theories, methods, languages, and supporting tools for developing and maintaining complex computer systems.

The goal of this conference is to bring together industrial, academic, and government experts, from a variety of user domains and software disciplines, to help advance the state of the art. Researchers, practitioners, tool developers and users are all welcome.

ICECCS is an A-ranked international conference by the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia (CORE) 2018 ranking.

We look forward to your contributions and participation.

This year's ICECCS will be organized and sponsored by Hiroshima University and will be held in a hybrid fashion (physical and online) in Hiroshima, Japan.

Scope and Topics

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished research results, case studies and tools.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 analysis and specification
  • Verification and validation
  • Reliability engineering and faults prediction
  • Formal engineering methods
  • SAT/SMT solvers for software analysis and testing
  • Mode-driven development
  • Security and privacy of complex systems
  • Reverse engineering and refactoring
  • Software architecture
  • Big data management
  • Intelligent software tools
  • Ubiquitous computing, context awareness, sensor networks
  • Agile methods
  • Human-Machine Pair Programming
  • Safety-critical and fault-tolerant architectures
  • Adaptive, self-managing and multi-agent systems
  • Cyber-physical systems and IoT
  • 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.

Submission and Publication

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.

Submitted manuscripts should be in English and formatted in the style of the IEEE conference format. Regular papers should not exceed 10 pages, and short papers should not exceed 6 pages, 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 to the (CPS guidelines).
