Message from the Symposium General-Chairs IESS 2019

Welcome to the fifth IFIP International Embedded Systems Symposium (IESS 2019), and the city of Friedrichshafen.

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, followed by IESS 2007 held in Irvine (CA), IESS 2009 held in Langenargen, Germany, at Schloß Montfort a historic castle, IESS 2013 held together with the ISORC (International Symposium on Service-Oriented System Engineering) in Paderborn, Germany, and IESS 2015 was held in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil.

This year IESS will be held in Friedrichshafen, Germany. We hope you will enjoy the conference and your stay in Friedrichshafen!

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