The International Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT) brings together researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to advance the science, engineering, and technology of embedded software development. EMSOFT 2013 is part of the Embedded Systems Week. Since 2001, EMSOFT has been the premier venue for cutting-edge research in the design and analysis of software that interacts with physical processes, with a long-standing tradition for results on cyber-physical systems, which compose computation, networking, and physical dynamics.

EMSOFT 2013 (13th in the series!) is part of the Embedded Systems Week.

Program Chairs:
Rolf Ernst, TU Braunschweig, Germany.
Oleg Sokolsky, University of Pennsylvania, USA.
