The 6th IFIP Workshop on Software Technologies for Future Embedded and Ubiquitous Systems (SEUS 2008)



NEW: A few pictures from SEUS 2008 have been posted here.

NEW: Authors of selected high quality regular papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Software

NEW: The proceedings are available on-line on the Springer web site.


Embedded and ubiquitous computing systems have considerably increased their scope of application over the past few years, and they include nowadays also mission- and business- critical scenarios. The advances call for a variety of compelling issues, including dependability, real-time, autonomy, resource constraints, seamless interaction, etc.
SEUS 2008 will be a forum where researchers and practitioners with substantial experiences and serious interests in advancing the state-of-the-art and the state-of-practice in the field of future embedded and ubiquitous computing systems gather and engage in review of the state-of-the-art, exchange of significant developments, and brain-storming on promising directions for future research.

SEUS 2007, the first edition sponsored by IFIP, was held in conjunction with the IEEE Int'l Symposium on Object/component/service-oriented Real-time Distributed Computing (ISORC). SEUS 2008 will be held as a stand-alone event for the first time and sponsored by IFIP WG10.2.
Seats will be limited to 55. When a paper is co-authored by a professor(s) and a student(s), the paper must be presented by a professor.

Topics of Interest

For inclusion in the workshop program, contributions that present advances in integrating the fields of embedded computing and ubiquitous systems are invited. Industrial applications in the emerging field are also encouraged. Papers can be of a conceptual, theoretical, application-oriented, standards-driving, innovative design or experimental nature, and should represent technological or scientific advances.

Suggested topics of interest include (but are not restricted to) the following:

  • Emerging applications, components and services;
  • Emerging infrastructural support;
  • Software architecture and programming models;
  • Communication system architecture;
  • Middleware, operating systems;
  • Software engineering, context awareness;
  • Self-organization and Organic Computing;
  • Dependability and/or real-time aspects;
  • Autonomy, resource management;
  • Human-machine interface, seamless interaction;
  • Embedded software synthesis and verification;
  • Reports on R&D progress in the field;
  • Specification of requirements;
  • Emerging tools and trends;
  • Emerging standards (or the need for new standards);
  • Practical experiences, particularly from industry;
  • Government strategies.
