SMSE 2017

Call for papers
System Modeling, Simulation and Evaluation (SMSE) are vital technologies needed in Model-Based Systems Engineering(MBSE) to guide the design of complex systems. MBSE is the idea of achieving code reuse and perform maintenance and product development through the use of software modeling technology and by splitting the production of software into two parallel engineering processes namely domain engineering and application engineering. The improvement of System Modeling, Simulation, and Evaluation will improve the preference of MBSE. The SMSE workshop provides a forum to bring together researchers and practitioners working towards improving the System Modeling, Simulation, Evaluation, Model-based Systems Engineering and their related areas. It will bring together a diverse group of experts to advance the concepts and application of SMSE. This includes innovative methodologies, techniques, tools, management and applications in this challenging area, and provides a chance of exchanging ideas on them. The SMSE Workshop collaborates and is co-located with Future-tech, giving researchers and practitioners in the field a platform to present their results and experience to a broader audience.

UCC 2017

Call for papers
Cloud Computing is an inevitable consequence when the development of electronic information and technology has reached the service level for anytime and anyplace. It is developed from our former existing technology, including Embedded system technology, Distributed systems, Computing algorithms, web technology. Cloud Computing has not only become a major model for connecting people to information, but also become the important platform for handling big data and intelligent applications. Recent advances in ubiquitous computing and Services have paved the way for exciting cloud worlds all the time and everywhere. Their ubiquitous infrastructure and infrastructure-less cloud systems always affect every aspect of our life to the point that they are hidden inside various appliances. There are a lot of natural Algorithms, Systems and Applications outcome from technological advances in ubiquitous cloud systems. For example, ubiquitous real-time image processing based on cloud systems, ubiquitous SoC specification based on cloud systems, ubiquitous specification and design of systems based on cloud systems, distributed computing based on cloud systems, dependable computing based on cloud systems, pervasive communications based on cloud systems, Multimedia Services based on cloud systems, and agent technologies based on cloud systems, etc.
