ECBS 2021 Call for Papers

The accepted papers will be submitted to ACM’s International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) and will be available in the ACM Digital Library. The proceedings will be also submitted for the possible inclusion into ISI Web of Science-Clarivate Analytics.


The conference on Engineering Computer-Based Systems provides a possibility for researchers and practitioners to present results, experiences, and challenges in the field of system and software engineering. Engineering is defined as the application of scientific principles to design and build systems, and the conference also appreciates submissions describing the results of applied research and experimental development. 


Any area that involves digital computing machines can be considered as a relevant topic for the conference. The following are the core themes of the conference:

  • Automotive Software
  • Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Digital Manufacturing
  • Internet of Things
  • Mission-Critical Systems
  • Smart Homes and Cities


Full paper: Finished or consolidated R&D works, to be included in one of the Conference themes. These papers are assigned a 10-page limit.

Short paper: Ongoing works with relevant preliminary results, open to discussion. These papers are assigned a 4-page limit.

Poster paper: Initial work with relevant ideas, open to discussion. These papers are assigned to a 2-page limit.

All papers will be subjected to a “single-blind review” by at least two members of the Program Committee.

A paper can be rejected or accepted by the Conference Chairs based on the reviews. Borderline papers can be accepted as another type of submission.

Supplementary materials such as links to software implementation and datasets used for experiments may be also submitted but the paper should be self-contained.

Papers have to be submitted electronically via EasyChair by the stated deadline.

Submitted papers must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere while under consideration for ECBS 2021. Also, by submitting the paper the authors declare that they agree to ACM plagiarism policy and procedure.

All accepted papers must be presented at the conference to appear in the proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for ECBS 2021. Accepted papers will be presented orally or as a poster based on the decision of program chairs. All accepted papers will be included in the proceedings.
