Modern computing systems are becoming increasingly diversified. Nowadays we hear about Systems of Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, Ubiquitous Systems and so on. Many of these systems are embedded, many are subject to real-time constraints and most of them run an operating system. In this context, the term Computing Systems Engineering involves techniques related to a safe, correct and deadline-compliant development methodology for these systems.

The Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering (SBESC) is an initiative of the research community originally associated with three events, the Operating Systems Workshop (WSO), Embedded Systems Workshop (WSE) and Real-Time Systems Workshop (WTR). Acknowledging the strong synergy between these three areas, and also motivated by the fact that the design of computing systems is an increasingly multidisciplinary task, since 2011 the three workshops are being organized in a single event and location, allowing for the information exchange. SBESC aims at foster networking and discussions about several topics related to the development of computing systems, aiding the integration and dissemination of know-how among researchers, students and professionals of the field.

Therefore, we invite authors to submit original research papers and experimental results related to the design, implementation, analysis, and evaluation of computing systems to one of the three workshops organized within the symposium: Operating Systems, Embedded Systems or Real-time Systems.
