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

The 7th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems

Posters, Demos, and Work-in-Progress Sessions

April 11-14, 2016 in Vienna, Austria as part of CPSWeek 2016   

As digital computing and communication becomes faster, cheaper and available in packages that are smaller and use less power, they find increased applicability in the design of physical systems. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems that operate in close coordination with computational and communication elements. The main purpose of computational elements in such systems is monitoring, coordination and control. A 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. 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. The work-in-progress (WIP), posters and demos are forums for students and researchers to present cutting edge work and initial in the CPS area. This will foster discussion with, and provide feedback from, the larger community at CPSWeek 2016.

Contributions should emphasize the cross-cutting, system-wide themes. Sectors of applicability include, but are not limited to, transportation (automotive, aerospace, marine, rail), SCADA systems (electricity generation including smart grids and the like, other utilities), smart physical infrastructure (smart bridges, buildings and highways), energy efficiency (energy-aware buildings), environmental monitoring, defense systems, intelligent medical devices, tele-operations and robotics.

Submissions will be evaluated by a program committee 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.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Theoretical foundations of Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Modeling, Analysis and Synthesis Techniques
  • Architectures for Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Building blocks for Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Security and Privacy for Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Systems Abstractions, Services and OS Support
  • Evaluation approaches and metrics
  • Novel CPS applications


The following submission deadlines and notification dates apply for Demo/Poster/WIP sessions:

  • Paper Submission Deadline: January 29, 2016 AOE (Extended from January 15)
  • Acceptance Decisions: February 8, 2016
  • Camera-ready Abstracts: February 14, 2016 (hard deadline)
  • Conference: April 11-14, 2016, Vienna, Austria


The submissions should be a one-page abstract in PDF format following ICCPS regular-paper formatting guidelines. All accepted abstracts will be published in the regular ICCPS Proceedings as one-page abstracts according to the ICCPS camera ready guidelines.

Demo Proposals, Poster abstracts, and WiP abstract should be submitted through the submission siteThe title of submissions should start with “Demo Abstract:”, “Poster Abstract:” or “WiP Abstract:” depending on the type of submission.

Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be reviewed or published.


  • 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. Videos of demos are strongly encouraged, but not required.
  • 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, and may also present a poster during the poster session.
