Björn Brandenburg will chair EMSOFT’17 Tue, 18 Oct 2016 14:18:20 +0000 Robert de Simone (INRIA) and Björn Brandenburg are co-chairs of the 2017  ACM SIGBED International Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT’17), to be held in conjunction with Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK) from October 15 until October 20 in Seoul, South Korea.

EMSOFT brings together researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to advance the science, engineering, and technology of embedded software development. Since 2001, EMSOFT has been the premier venue for cutting-edge research in the design and analysis of software that interacts with physical processes, with a long-standing tradition for results on cyber-physical systems, which compose computation, networking, and physical dynamics. See the ESWEEK homepage for further details.
