*** Submission Deadline Extended till 17th November 2009 ***

17th Annual IEEE International Conference and Workshops on the
Engineering of Computer Based Systems (ECBS)
sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on ECBS

March 22nd-26th, 2010
At St. Anne's College, University of Oxford,England, UK

“Engineering Green/Eco CBS”

ECBS 2010 will be the 17th formal IEEE sponsored meeting dedicated to formulating and advancing methods, techniques and tools for the engineering of computer-based systems. The conference is devoted to the design, development, deployment, and analysis of complex systems whose behaviour is largely determined or controlled by computers. Such systems are characterized by functional, performance, and reliability requirements that mandate the tight integration of information processing and physical processes.

ECBS has many facets that include system modelling, requirements specification, simulation, architectures, communications, safety, security, reliability, software, hardware, human computer interfacing, system integration, verification and validation, and project management. Effectively, ECBS integrates several disciplines, including software, hardware, and communications, into a complete systems engineering approach.

The conference provides a bridge between industry and academia, blending academic research and industrial developments. Papers are sought which reflect this theme, in fundamental ECBS technologies, or application domains, as listed below.

  • Adaptive Computing
  • Agile Development
  • Architectures
  • Autonomic Systems
  • Co-design
  • Component-Based System Design
  • Design Evolution
  • Distributed Systems Design
  • ECBS Infrastructure (Tools, Environments)
  • Education & Training
  • Embedded Real-Time Software Systems
  • Lifecycle Processes & Process Evolution
  • Integration Engineering
  • Model-Based System Development
  • Modelling and Analysis of Complex Systems
  • Open Systems
  • Product-Families Models and Architectures
  • Reengineering & Reuse
  • Reliability, Safety, Dependability, Security Requirements Elicitation and Analysis
  • Standards
  • System on a Chip
  • System Assessment, Testing and Metrics
  • Verification & Validation

Reports of practical solutions, trends and new system characteristics for ECBS, taking an integrated systems approach, may include application domains such as: Aerospace Systems, Command and Control, Continuous and Discrete Manufacturing, Environmental Systems, Instrumentation and Control Applications, Internet Technology and Applications, Intelligent Highway-Vehicle Systems (IHVS), Medical Systems, Telecommunication.


As is the tradition, ECBS 2010 will host workshops, not only in the form of "hot topics" mini conferences but also working groups.

Poster Sessions

Posters and abstracts presenting work in progress are invited for a poster session. Accepted abstracts will be published in the proceedings. Graduate students are especially welcome to participate.

Doctoral Symposium

The Doctoral Symposium provides a forum for PhD candidates to present work in progress and get feedback from the research community while also publishing a full paper in the IEEE proceedings.

Industrial Track

The industrial track provides a forum for short papers on results of industrial research and development.

Submission of Papers

Full papers and Doctoral Symposium papers must be 6 to max 10 pages in Computer Society Format, poster abstracts 1 to 2 pages and industrial track papers 2 to 4 pages. For further information see the submission guidelines on the conference web site.
