                                                                  CALL FOR PAPERS

                                          * ENGINEERING COMPLEX COMPUTER SYSTEMS *

                                                                Thirtieth Annual
                                                                      HICSS - 30
                                                Maui, Hawaii, January 7-10, 1997

Papers are invited for the Minitrack on ENGINEERING COMPLEX COMPUTER
SYSTEMS as part of the Advanced Technology track at the Hawaii
International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS).


        Modern computer systems and applications embody many different
characteristics and properties that are currently addressed, studied,
and optimized independently. Nevertheless, although it is of basic
importance to focus on these aspects independently, as a whole these
properties feature a complex interrelationship, and thus a
higher-level view of the complete project becomes mandatory.

        While perhaps some of the earlier computer systems could be
described, designed and implemented with a particular focus on one
objective (such as fault-tolerance or timeliness), or using a single
method (such as Structured Programming), it is very questionable
whether such modern and future applications can be. Nowadays almost
all electronic products are becoming more and more software based:
complex computer systems are becoming common in many sectors, such as
manufacturing, communications, defense, transportation, aerospace,
hazardous environments, energy, health care, etc. These systems
feature a number of different characteristics (such as distributed
processing, heterogeneous computational paradigms, high speed
networks, novel bus systems, or special-purpose hardware enhancements
in general) and performance requirements (such as real-time behavior,
fault tolerance, security, adaptability, development time and cost,
long life concerns). The concurrent satisfaction of the systems
requirements have a considerable impact on the hardware
characteristics and vice-versa. The analysis of the complete project,
as a whole, is a major point in the design of the computer system
itself and plays a basic role throughout the entire system life.

        The ECCS Minitrack will bring together industrial, academic, and
government experts from these various disciplines, to determine how
the disciplines' problems and solution techniques interact within the
whole system. Researchers, practitioners, tool developers and users,
and technology transition experts are all welcome.


        Papers are solicited on all major aspects of ECCS including
specifying, designing, prototyping, building, testing, operating,
maintaining, and evolving of complex computer systems, including:

                * Software engineering, re-engineering, reverse engineering
                * Complex real-time architectures, tools, environments and languages
                * AI and intelligent systems
                * Database and data management
                * Dependable real-time systems
                * Virtual reality, multimedia, real-time imaging
                * Algorithms, optimization and analysis
                * Analytical techniques
                * Megaprogramming, visual programming
                * Performance estimation, prediction and optimization
                * Prototyping and testing techniques
                * Formal methods and formal specification techniques
                * Hardware/software co-design
                * Communications, networking, mobile computing
                * Highly heterogeneous, distributed and parallel platforms
                * Case studies and project reports

        Further information about the ECCS Minitrack are available at the
following WWW address:


1. Submit 6 (six) copies of the full paper, consisting of 20 - 25
        pages double-spaced including title page, abstract, references and
        diagrams directly to the minitrack coordinator.

2. Do not submit the paper to more than one minitrack. The paper
        should contain original material and not be previously published
        or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere.

3. Each paper must have a tile page which includes the title, full
        name of all authors, and their complete addresses including
        affiliation(s), telephone number(s) and e-mail address(es).

4. The first page of the paper should include the title and a
        300-word abstract.


March 15, 1996: Abstracts submitted to track coordinators for guidance
        and indication of appropriate content. Authors unfamiliar with
        HICSS or those who wish additional guidance are encouraged to
        contact any coordinator to discuss potential papers.

June 1, 1996: Full papers submitted to the appropriate track, or
        minitrack coordinator.

August 31, 1996: Notification of accepted papers mailed to authors.

October 1, 1996: Accepted manuscripts, camera-ready , sent to
        minitrack coordinators; one author from each paper must register
        by this time.

November 15, 1996: All other registrations must be received.
        Registrations received after this deadline may not be accepted due
        to space limitation.

There are three other majors tracks in the conference: Software,
Digital Documents, and Information Systems. The Information Systems
Track has several minitracks that focus on a variety of research
topics in Collaboration Technology, Decision Support and
Knowledge-Based Systems, and Organizational Systems and Technology.
For more information on the other tracks, please contact:

Software Technology Track:
  Hesham El-Rewini

Digital Documents Track:
  M. Stuart Lynn

Information Systems Track:
  Ralph H. Sprague, Jr.
  Jay F. Nunamaker, Jr.
  Eileen Dennis (Track Assistant)

The purpose of HICSS is to provide a forum for the interchange of
ideas, research results, development activities, and applications
among academicians and practitioners in computer-based systems
sciences. The conference consists of tutorials, advanced seminars,
presentations of accepted papers, open forum, tasks forces, and
plenary and distinguished guest lectures. There is a high degree of
interaction and discussion among the conference participants because
the conference is conducted in a workshop-like setting.
