Symposium on Ensemble Networks and Software Engineering (SENSE'18)

I found that writing software was much more difficult than anything else I had done in my life.
- Donald E. Knuth

Almost every aspect of our daily lives depends on software. Systems in which software interacts with other software, systems, devices, sensors and with people are called software-intensive systems. Examples include large-scale heterogeneous systems, embedded systems for automotive and avionics applications, telecommunications, wireless ad hoc systems, business applications with an emphasis on web services etc. These systems have massive numbers of nodes (ensembles) which operate in open and non-deterministic environments. Failures of these systems can have dramatic consequences for our economy and well-being. While many of the problems posed by traditional software are difficult but manageable, some of the challenges posed by these complex systems are beyond the current state of the art of software engineering.
The Symposium on Ensemble Networks and Software Engineering (SENSE-2018) is intended to serve as a forum for researchers, practitioners, and developers to exchange ideas and results for the advancement of ensemble networks and software engineering. SENSE’18 is co-affiliated with Seventh International Conference on Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI-2018), September 19-22, 2018, Banglore, India. 
Call for Papers

The program committee solicits original research papers to be considered for presentation at the symposium and publication in the proceedings. Authors should submit their papers online. We use EDAS system for managing submissions and review process. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Detailed usage instruction on EDAS can be found here. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Please compare all author names in EDAS with the author list in your paper. They must be identical and in the same order. Further guidelines for submission are posted at:

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. To be published in the Proceedings, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full rate. All accepted papers MUST be presented at the conference by one of the authors, or, if none of the authors are able to attend, by a qualified surrogate.
