Third International Conference on Embedded Software
In cooperation with the ACM
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, October 13-15, 2003
Registration is closed.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to advance the science, engineering, and technology in embedded software development. EMSOFT was started two years ago with focus on principles of embedded software development and aims at covering all aspects of embedded software. The first meeting was held as a conference with only invited speakers, and was sponsored by DARPA and NSF at Lake Tahoe in October 2001. The second meeting held in October 2002 in Grenoble, France, had a mix of invited and contributed papers with over 150 participants spanning different areas.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series (see volumes 2211 and 2491 for past proceedings). Selected papers will be invited after the meeting to submit an extended version to a special issue of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computer Systems.
