Message from the Symposium General-Chairs IESS 2022

Welcome to the seventh IFIP International Embedded Systems Symposium (IESS 2022).

The IESS is a unique forum to present novel ideas, exchange timely research results, and discuss the state of the art and future trends in the field of embedded systems. Contributors and participants from both industry and academia take active part in this symposium which fosters research relations and collaboration between academic researchers and industry representatives worldwide. The IESS conference is organized by the Computer Systems Technology committee (TC10) of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP).

IESS is a true inter-disciplinary conference on the design of embedded systems. Computer science and electrical engineering are the predominant academic disciplines concerned with the topics covered in IESS, but many applications also involve civil, mechanical, aerospace, and automotive engineering, as well as various medical disciplines.

In 2005, IESS was held for the first time in Manaus, Brazil, in the middle of the Amazon jungle on the edge of the Ariaú river, which is a tributary of the Rio Negro. The second edition, IESS 2007, was held in Irvine (CA), USA, which is a vibrant city in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Thereafter, IESS 2009 was held in Langenargen, Germany, at Schloß Montfort a historic castle. In 2013, the fourth IESS was held together with the IEEE International Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering (ISORC) in Paderborn, Germany. The following edition, IESS 2015, was held in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, close to the famous Iguaçu Falls, and was co-located with the Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering (SBESC). Finally, the last edition, IESS 2019, was held in Friedrichshafen, Germany, in the beautiful area of Lake Constantz.

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). We are sure that our community is eager to meet up the colleagues and friends after so long time. We hope this year will continue to foster valuable discussion and knowledge sharing about the state of the art in Embedded Systems and the challenges faced in both academia and industry.

The top ranking papers will be invited for publication in a special edition journal (intended target Springer DAEM).
