V Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering
November 3-6, 2015 - Golden Tulip Hotel - Foz do Iguaçu/PR

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), the Embedded Systems Workshop (WSE), and the Real-Time Systems Workshop (WTR), that got together having identified a strong synergy between these areas, also motivated by the fact that designing computing systems is an increasingly multidisciplinary task. Since the first edition, the event holds the Embedded Systems School (ESSE) and since 2013, the Brazilian Conference on Critical Embedded Systems (CBSEC) also joined SBESC, along with a newly created Forum on Computing Systems Engineering Education.


Modern computing systems are becoming increasingly diversified. Nowadays we hear about Systems of Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, Ubiquitous Systems, Internet of Things, 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 the safe, correct, and deadline-compliant development of such systems.

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit original research papers for presentation at the symposium. Papers can be written in English, Portuguese, or Spanish, must be formatted according with the IEEE two-columns symposium template<http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html>, and the resulting PDF must not exceed 6 pages. Online submissions through SBC's online submission service<https://jems.sbc.org.br/jems2/index.php?r=conference/main&c=2268> only.
Note to authors: all accepted papers will be initially published online at the symposium web site. Full papers written in English and effectively presented at the symposium will be subsequently published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and submitted for publication in IEEEXplore and submitted to indexing services. From these, those with the highest review ranks will be invited to prepare an extended version for consideration of partner journals: ACM SIGOPS Operating System Review (for OS papers) and Springer Journal on Design Automation for Embedded Systems (for ES papers). Copyright will be handled by SBC for papers in Portuguese (you can get the form here) and by IEEE for papers in English.

Important Dates

Paper submission: Jul 26, 2015 (BRT) (Definitive deadline)
Notification of acceptance: Sep 6, 2015
Final version of the papers: Oct 11, 2015
