Call for Posters, Demos, and Work-in-Progress

As digital computing and communication becomes faster, cheaper and available in packages which are smaller and use less power, these capabilities are becoming embedded in many objects and structures in the physical environment. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by such computing and communication. Broad deployment of cyber-physical systems is transforming how we interact with the physical world as profoundly as the world wide web transformed how we interact with one another, and harnessing their capabilities holds the possibility of enormous societal and economic impact.

ICCPS is the premier single-track conference for reporting advances in all aspects of cyber-physical systems, including theory, tools, applications, systems, testbeds and field deployments. This year, the conference features two focus areas for submissions: one on CPS foundations (the traditional focus of ICCPS), and one on secure and resilient infrastructure CPS (the focus of the former HiCoNS conference).

Submissions will be evaluated based on technical merit and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas at the conference. Both academic and industrial submissions are encouraged. The submissions should be in PDF format following ICCPS regular-paper formatting guidelines. Poster and demo submissions are limited to two pages; works-in-progress are limited to one page. All accepted demo abstracts will be published in the regular ICCPS proceedings. All accepted poster and works-in-progress abstracts will be published in the regular ICCPS proceedings unless the authors request otherwise.

Key Dates:

Submission deadline: January 19, 2015 (closed)

Camera-ready submissions: mid February

Submission:

Demo Proposals, Poster abstracts, and Work-in-Progress abstracts should be submitted through the submission site. The title of submissions should start with "Demo Abstract:", "Poster Abstract:" or "WiP Abstract:" according to the type of submission.

The poster session will provide a forum for researchers to showcase ongoing, mature work and obtain feedback from the CPS community as a part of the joint poster/demo session of CPS Week.

The demo session will provide a forum for researchers to showcase ongoing work and obtain feedback from the CPS community as a part of the joint poster/demo session of CPS Week. Demo proposals should clearly describe what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. A table, power, and wireless connectivity will be provided for each demo. If a demonstration requires special arrangements in addition to the above, please describe them clearly in the demo submission.

The Work-in-Progress session will provide a forum for researchers to present preliminary work and obtain feedback from the CPS community at ICCPS. Authors of accepted WiP abstracts will give a short oral presentation at the WiP session.
