The Workshop on Communications in Critical Embedded Systems has been promoted over the last five years as part of the Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (SBRC), the most notable event on the subject for the Brazilian community.
The successful past editions led WoCCES to the publication of a volume as part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) book series. In this special issue, the 12 best papers published by WoCCES were selected and invited for extension.
In order to take WoCCES to reaching a wider audience, the 6th edition of the workshop will be held in conjuction with IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications 2018 in Natal, RN, Brazil.
WoCCES will keep promoting the presentation-discussion format. Attendees will be encouraged to demonstrate their research achievements in presentations and/or posters for a better visualization, and also other innovative presentation formats that might be eventually proposed. Every carried out discussion among presentation slots will be conducted by a chair whose area of expertise is more related to the works being presented, who will be assisted by other co-organizers that will dedicate full time for the realization of WoCCES.
At the end of the workshop, a wider discussion will take place with a synthesis of the main discussed points, and prospections about the future of the area, including open issues.
