The 22nd International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS 2017) will be held on November 6-8, 2017, Fukuoka, Japan. 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.

Over the past several years, we have seen a rapid rising emphasis on design, implement and manage complex computer systems which are present in every aspect of human activities, such as manufacturing, communications, defense, transportation, aerospace, hazardous environments, energy, and health care. The complex computer systems are frequently distributed over heterogeneous networks and processing large amount data. 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. The key issues in these systems include performance, real-time behavior, fault tolerance, security, adaptability, development time and cost, and long life concerns.
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 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 toolsed 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:
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 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 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 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 double-column CPS format. Full papers should not exceed 10 pages, and short papers should not exceed 4 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: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html.
We invite all prospective authors to submit their manuscripts via the ICECCS'17 portal, hosted on EasyChair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iceccs2017
The conference proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and submitted for EI indexing.
As software systems are getting increasingly complex, we need new methods and tools to create and maintain them.
WOCSE '17 aims at bringing together researchers from academia and industry to present and discuss novel approaches to engineering complex systems.
In addition to the research track (see separate CFP), the 16th IEEE International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (SCAM 2016) will also feature an Engineering Track. This track welcomes six-page papers that report on the design and implementation of tools for source code analysis and manipulation, as well as libraries, infrastructure, and the real world studies enabled by these advances. To be clear, this is not the addition of a new track to SCAM, which will remain a two track conference, but a significant expansion to the scope of the tools track of previous SCAMs.
What artefacts qualify as “engineering track” material?
A successful SCAM engineering track paper should:
Optionally (and encouraged):
Note that the submission length has a limit of six pages, compared to the two to four pages of traditional tool demo papers. This gives authors enough space to discuss artefact motivation, design, and use cases in much more detail. For example, a use case would be well illustrated by a demo scenario with screenshots. The papers should be submitted electronically via the conference web site.
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the engineering track program committee. Authors of accepted papers will be required to present their artefacts at the conference. All accepted engineering track papers will be published in the conference proceedings. The key criterion for acceptance is that the paper should (a) follow the above mentioned guidelines and (b) make an original contribution that can benefit practitioners in the field now and/or others designing and building artefacts for source code analysis and manipulation. The artefacts can be in an early research prototype or a polished product ready for deployment. Papers about commercial products are allowed, as long as the guidelines described above are followed.
Videos and other demo material may be taken into account by reviewers as they review the paper. However, such material will not become part of the permanent record of the conference, so the paper should be self contained. In order to preserve the anonymity of the reviewers, such material should be hosted on an anonymous public source (e.g., youtube), or made available in such a way that the tools chair can download them once and redistribute them to reviewers.
All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
Six pages IEEE format and can be submitted via EasyChair. Please use the IEEE templates in preparing your manuscripts:

Routing is at the heart of the Internet and has been a continual source of security problems since its expansion in the 1980s. SCION is a new approach to the Internet, which offers dramatically better security properties than we currently have. We describe a collaborative effort, the Verified Scion Project, at ETH Zurich that aims to verify Scion, going the full distance from high-level network-wide properties down to the code running on SCION routers. We will explain the issues involved, the approach we take, the progress we have made, and perspectives for the future.
The work reported on is joint work between three groups at ETH Zurich: my Information Security Group, the Network Security Group of Adrian Perrig, and the Programming Methodology Group of Peter Mueller.
Code clone analysis is an activity to find similar code snippets in source code. Nowadays it becomes one of popular analyses characterizing redundancy and maintainability of source code. It has been studied for more than 20 years, and it is still a very active and attractive research field in Software Engineering. In this talk, we will present history and evolution of our research activities on code clone and related areas. Starting from an industry request for code maintenance, we have developed various tools and applied them to various fields. We will show also our current and future direction toward identifying code provenance in huge and complex ecosystem of Open Source Software.
