12th International Conference on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems (VECoS 2018)

September 26-28, 2018 | Grenoble, France |

The VECoS conference series focuses on the analysis of computer and communication systems, where functional and extra-functional properties are inter-related. VECoS encourages the cross fertilization between the various formal verification and evaluation approaches, methods and techniques, especially those developed for concurrent and distributed hardware/software systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Abstraction techniques
  • Certification standards for real-time systems
  • Compositional verification
  • Correct-by-construction design
  • Dependability assessment techniques
  • Equivalence checking
  • Model-checking
  • Parameterized verification
  • Performance and robustness evaluation
  • Probabilistic verification
  • QoS evaluation, planning and deployment
  • RAMS (Reliability-Availability-Maintainability-Safety) assessment
  • Rigorous system design
  • Security protocols verification
  • Simulation techniques of discrete-event and hybrid systems
  • Supervisory control
  • Verification & validation of IoT
  • Verification & validation of safety-critical systems
  • Worst-case execution time analysis

Application areas of interest to VECoS include: adaptive systems, communication protocols, computer-supported collaborative work systems, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, high-performance computing, internet of things, logistics systems, manufactoring of the future, mixed criticality systems, mobile and wireless networking, operations research, programming languages, real-time and embedded operating systems, service-oriented systems, telecommunication systems, ubiquitous systems, web services, wireless sensor networks and workflow systems.

VECoS 2018 will be held in September 26-28 in Grenoble, France.


All the deadlines are AoE (Anywhere on Earth)

  • Abstract deadline: 08 April 2018 30 April 2018 Extended!
  • Papers deadline: 30 April 2018 08 May 2018 Extended!
  • Paper notification: 11 June 2018
  • Camera-ready deadline: 18 June 2018
  • Conference: 26-28 September 2018




VECoS 2018 is soliciting two types of contributions: full and short papers. Full papers are allowed a maximum of 15 pages (including bibliography), whereas short papers are allowed a maximum of 6 pages (including bibliography). Submitted papers must be in English presenting original work and not be submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EasyChair
using the LNCS format. Accepted (full and short) papers will appear in the conference proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the conference and present the paper. The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a special issue of Innovations in Systems and Software Engineering: A NASA Journal or of the International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems.

In addition to the full and short papers, VECoS invites posters presenting work in progress. Posters will not lead to a publication in the proceedings. The deadline fo submission of posters is July 1, 2018. Please submit a PDF file containing a short description of the content of the poster (upto 2 pages in LNCS format) using EasyChair. These contributions will be judged solely on the basis of their attractiveness to the conference.
