ECBS 2017 is the 5th formal meeting dedicated to formulating and advancing methods, techniques and tools for the engineering of computer-based systems. The conference is devoted to the design, development, deployment, and analysis of complex systems whose behavior is largely determined or controlled by computers. Such systems are characterized by functional, performance, and reliability requirements that mandate the tight integration of information processing and physical processes.
ECBS integrates software, hardware, and communication perspective of system engineering through its many facets that include system modelling, requirements specification, simulation, architectures, safety, security, reliability, humanâ€”computer interaction, system integration, verification and validation, and project management. The conference provides a bridge between industry and academia blending academic research and industrial development.
