12th International Conference on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems
26-28 septembre 2018
Welcome to VECoS 2018
will be held on
26-28 septembre 2018
Université Grenoble Alpes
in Grenoble, France.
Université Grenoble Alpes is the main organizer together with the support of
and with publicity support by
Formal Methods Europe.
The International Conference on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems (VECoS) was created by an Euro-Med network of researchers in computer science. Its first edition VECoS 2007 took place in Algiers, VECoS 2008 in Leeds, VECoS 2009 in Rabat, VECoS 2010 in Paris, VECoS 2011 in Tunis, VECoS 2012 in Paris, VECoS 2013 in Florence, VECoS 2014 in Bejaia, VECoS 2015 in Bucharest, VECoS 2016 in Tunis, VECoS 2017 in Montreal.
The aim of the VECoS conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners, in the areas of verification, control, performance, quality of service, dependability evaluation, in order to discuss the state-of-the-art and the challenges in modern computer and communication systems in which functional and extra-functional properties are strongly interrelated. Thus, the main motivation for VECoS is to encourage the cross-fertilization between the various formal verification and evaluation approaches, methods and techniques, and especially those developed for concurrent and distributed hardware/software systems. Beyond its technical and scientific goals, another main purpose of VECoS is to promote collaboration between participants in research and education in the area of computer science and engineering. We welcome contributions describing original research, practical experience reports and tool descriptions/demonstrations in the areas of verification, control, performance, quality of service and dependability evaluation.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
adaptive systems, cloud computing, communication protocols, computer-supported collaborative work systems, cyber-physical systems (CPS), high performance computing, internet of things, logistics systems, manufactory of the future, mixed criticality systems, mobile and wireless networking, operations research, programming languages, real-time and embedded operating systems, service oriented systems, telecommunication systems, ubiquitous systems, web services. wireless sensor networks, workflow systems.
Contributions must have not been published previously, nor already submitted to other conferences/journals. Manuscripts must be submitted in PDF format electronically, via the EasyChair system and should not exceed 15 pages using the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Selected papers from the Conference will be considered for publication in extended and revised form in a special issue of an indexed international journal (ISSE or IJCCBS).
Authors of accepted papers must submit a signed Consent to Publish form, through which the copyright of their paper is transferred to Springer. Please download the template of the form here:
