After a long period of very reduced personal contact due to the worldwide measures to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to hold the seventh edition of IESS as a presential event in the modern and newly built Innovation Quarter in Lippstadt (Germany).

To foster the discussion and knowledge sharing about the state of the art in Embedded Systems and also the challenges faced by both academia and industry, attendees will be given access to a preprint version of the selected papers from Monday before the event until its end on Friday, so that, they can read the material before the presentations and thus foster the discussion.
