MODERN SYSTEMS 2022 - International Conference of Modern Systems Engineering Solutions

July 24, 2022 - July 28, 2022

MODERN SYSTEMS 2022: Call for Papers
Onsite and Online Options: In order to accommodate a large number of situations, we are offering the option for either physical presence or virtual participation (pdf slides or pre-recorded videos).

We are witnessing a paradigm shift in systems engineering approaches caused by several facets of society and technology evolution. On one side, the mobility, the increase in processing power and the large storage capacity created the capacity needed to deliver services to everybody, everywhere, anytime. On the other side, new computation approaches, data gathering, and storage combined with advances in intelligence-based learning and decision-makin, allowed a new perspective for systems engineering.

The advanced pace of technological achievements is supported by Cloud/Edge/Fog-based computing, High Performance Computing (HPC), Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Deep Learning, Machine Learning, along with 5G/6G communications (integration of terrestrial/special systems) and mobility. As such, deployment, operation and technologies, integration, maintenance became a cornerstone for developing systems complying with functional and non-functional requirements.

MODERN SYSTEMS 2022 inaugurates a series of events focusing on systems development considering the variety of combination between requirements, technologies, and the application domains.

We expect contributions concerning the benefit of using new technological approaches in considering a larger spectrum of requirements in complex and maintenance (cost, resources) intensive systems and solutions in order to guarantee systems resilience, scalability, security, and so on, in a sustainable environment.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.
