Call for Papers
The 17th International Conference on Embedded Software and Systems (ICESS 2021)
Shanghai, P. R. China, December 10-11, 2021
Submission deadline: July 31st, 2021, 11:59pm, Anywhere on Earth

Overview: The advancement of embedded software and systems, such as intelligent vehicles, industrial robots, wearable devices, and Internet-of-Things, has great societal and economic impacts. It is of utmost importance to ensure the safety, efficiency, and security of their design and implementation. The International Conference on Embedded Software and Systems (ICESS) is a global forum for researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to present and discuss emerging ideas and trends in embedded software and systems. The conference has a broad scope covering the design, implementation, optimization, and validation of embedded software and systems in various domains, with recent focus on cyber-physical systems, Internet-of-Things, embedded security, and autonomous software systems.

ICESS 2021 is the 17th International Conference on Embedded Software and Systems. It will be held in Shanghai, China, and is the next event of a series of highly successful international conferences, held in recent years as ICESS 2020 (Virtual Event), ICESS 2019 (Las Vegas, USA), ICESS 2017 (Sydney, Australia), ICESS 2016 (Sichuan, China), ICESS 2015 (New York, USA), ICESS 2014 (Paris, France), ICESS 2013 (Sydney, Australia), ICESS 2012 (Liverpool, UK), ICESS 2011 (Changsha, China), and ICESS 2010 (Bradford, UK).

Starting from ICESS 2021, we are proud to announce that the conference will be sponsored by Elsevier and Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA). ICESS 2021 will accept both regular and poster papers. All accepted regular papers will be directly published on a special issue in Elsevier JSA. The accepted poster papers will be presented during the poster session in the conference and will not appear in the JSA special issue. However, authors of poster papers are welcome to extend the work and submit the extended version to the journal after the conference.
