Software Engineering and Architectures for Realtime Interactive Systems Working Group

The SEARIS Working Group is a loosly connected group of researcher and professionals which brings together system architects and developers for realtime interactive systems to analyze and discuss the state of the art and future directions of interactive systems design. The primary activity is the organisation of an annual workshop.

Please note the following important dates:

  • February 17, 2014: Short/long paper submission
  • February 26, 2014: Notification of acceptance
  • March 30, 2014: Workshop (please check for updates)
  • 2-3 weeks later: Camera-ready versions

Following last year, research paper, position paper, and the state of the art reports will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital library.

The review process is double blind, so please upload an anonymous version of your submission.
