The 2023 IEEE International Conference on Embedded Software and Systems (ICESS) is held in Ocean Flower Island, Hainan, China, December 17-21, 2023. International Conference on Embedded Software and Systems (ICESS) is a global forum for researchers and devel¬opers from academia, industry, and government to present and discuss emerging ideas and trends in embedded software and systems. The conference has a broad scope covering the design, implementation, optimization, and validation of embedded software and systems in various domains. With the rapid development of high-performance embedded chips, the computing power of edge devices has been greatly enhanced, enabling the devices to handle computation-intensive tasks in real time. More and more artificial intelligence (Al) applications are migrating to edge computing platforms for ensuring real-time response. The combination of edge computing and Al has given rise to edge intelligence, which is an emerging technology that integrates the core capabilities of network, computing, storage, and applications. Edge intelligence can provide users with high-quality intelligent services more efficiently by deploying intelligent algorithms on edge devices closer to users. Compared with Al models deployed on the cloud, edge intelligence has the advantages of lower power consumption, shorter latency, higher security, and closer to users. Therefore, edge intelligence has become a hot research topic in academia in recent years. In addition, Huawei, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Cisco, and other major global enterprises have also launched their layout on this aspect, in order to accelerate the development of precision agriculture, smart healthcare, smart city, industrial Internet of Things, and other fields and related industries.

Due to the free trade port policy, Hainan is visa-free for people from 59 countries. For details, please refer to the links of notice by the Government and the Moodie Davitt Report.
