of the Session
The discipline of Software Engineering has already established itself as a prime contributor towards sustenance and accelerated growth of infrastructural development process. Major areas of concerns regarding effectiveness of software products in the domains of their applicability generally emanate from the proper lack of understanding of the requirements and formulation of appropriate functional specializations. Absence of unambiguity and consistency in requirement formulation and together with non - availability of sufficient software tools very often make the software development process difficult to automate, thereby adding further confusion towards worthiness of software products.
This special session aims at addressing these critical issues concerning the engineering of software products in the perspective of industrial technology through bringing together the researchers and practitioners from industry and academia. Major areas of prime focus will be formal modeling, functional specifications, domain specific languages, model driven system development, performance evaluation etc. The session will also concentrate on state - of - the art research trends making software products more effective. The topics will include, but are not limited to, the following areas,
Agent-Based Software Development
Aspect Oriented Technique
Cloud Computing based Software Development
Data Base and Data Warehousing
Distributed and Mobile Software Systems
Enterprise Software Technologies
Internet and Web-Based System

of the Session
Networking technologies are widely used for data communication and information change. It is becoming more important how to apply such technologies to modern industrial/control systems with a large number of distributed sensors and actuators. The advanced networking technologies have provided a low-cost solution for effective distributed information processing and controlling, resulting in flexible architecture and reduction of installation and maintenance costs. Consequently, networked control and filtering are the current trend for industrial automation and have applications in a broad range of areas, such as mobile sensor networks, remote surgery, haptics collaboration over the Internet, and automated highway system and unmanned aerial vehicles.
This special session is to investigate the control and filtering for networked systems in industrial electronics areas. Topics of interest are included but not limited to:
Event-triggered control
Event-triggered filtering
Network resource scheduling and control
Network bandwidth and control
