International Embedded Systems Symposium 2005 - Call for Papers

Conference Theme:

As almost no other technology, mechatronics is an essential element of many innovations in automotive engineering. New functions and improvements of already existing functions, as well as the compliance with traffic regulations and customer requirements, have only become possible by the increasing use of mechatronic systems, especially in the fields of driving, safety, reliability, and functionality. Along with the functionalities that increase in number and have to cooperate, the complexity of the entire system will increase.'
Synergy effects resulting from distributed application functionalities via several electronic control devices, exchanging information through the network bring about more complex system architectures with many different sub-networks, operating with different velocities and different protocol implementations.
To manage the increasing complexity of these systems a deterministic behaviour of the control units and the communication network must be provided for, in particular when dealing with a distributed functionality or redundant realization.
Contributions and participants from industry and academics on the below mentioned topics (not restricted to) are welcome to take active part in this symposium.
The main goal of this symposium is to present, to exchange, and to discuss the actual status of the work, actual research results, and tendencies in the scope of embedded system applied to transport applications.

Topics: Topics include, but are not restricted to the following:
