DESCRIPTION: IEEE Computer Society's Third International Conference on
the Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS'97) is to be held
in Como, Italy, in September 1997.

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 these 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 will be examined on a
level playing field.

SUBMISSIONS: Different classes of contributions are sought, ranging
from research papers to lessons learned and status reports. 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. Papers
shall describe original research or report industrial experience and
shall not exceed 6000 words. Panel proposals shall describe the topic
(500 words) and shall include a short CV (maximum 300 words) and a
short position paper (maximum 300 words= ) from each panelist.
Tutorial proposal (maximum 3000 words) shall describe the material
that will be covered in the course and the schedule, and shall include
a short CV (maximum 300 words) for each instructor. Tool exhibits are
invited. Abstract of 500 words for the special session "ESSI
Industrial Software Best Practices" shall describe experiences in
technology transfer.
