COMPSAC 2022 will be completely virtual as it was in 2020 and 2021, and all presentations will be done virtually. We will announce this update also in the submission acceptance letters to authors. Authors of accepted papers will be required to provide a video of their presentation together with the submission of the final version of their papers. COMPSAC will provide detailed guidance regarding preparation and submission of these videos.

6th IEEE Workshop on Software Engineering for Smart Systems (SESS 2022) 

Goal of the workshop: 

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners and developers to share their experiences and discuss the latest advances and innovations in software engineering with application to the development of smart systems. 

Workshop theme: 

Smart systems are those that are able to sense their environment context and adapt their behavior as the context changes in order to provide appropriate services to the user anytime anywhere. The Internet of Things (IoT) is an enabling technology for smart systems as it makes it possible to turn any object into a smart thing, able to sense its current situation, adapt to new situation and communicate with other smart things. There are a growing number of applications emerging from the IoT technology to include cyber-physical systems, smart homes, smart healthcare, intelligent transportation, and smart cities. Software will form a critical part of these systems to provide reliable and efficient smart services. However, developing software for smart systems is challenging due to a number of reasons: they are highly distributed; large scale; network nodes are heterogeneous; involve resource constrained mobile devices; and requirements are not fixed but change frequently. Thus, traditional methods for requirement engineering, system design, testing and verification are no longer adequate. New approaches are required to cater for changing system requirements, context–awareness, mobility and smart adaptation to changing context. 

Scope of the workshop: 

The workshop topics include but are not limited to the following: 

  • Requirement engineering for smart systems 
  • Model-driven engineering for smart systems 
  • Testing of smart systems 
  • Formal specification and verification of smart systems 
  • Cloud computing 
  • Internet of Things 
  • Context-aware and adaptive systems 
  • Mobile computing 
  • Pervasive/Ubiquitous computing 
  • Intrusion detection systems 
  • Security and privacy of smart systems 
  • Cyber physical systems 
  • Real-time control systems and robotics 
  • E-learning and smart educational systems

Likely participants: Software engineers, academics and researchers in emerging technologies are called to participate and exchange ideas and techniques.
