Call for WiP Abstracts, Demos, and Posters

ICCPS 2018 seeks high-quality technical abstracts, demos, and posters describing work-in-progress in the area of cyber-physical systems (CPS), including preliminary work on theory, platform design and implementation, verification and validation, empirical case studies, and other work that has potential to advance the state of the art in CPS. Authors of each accepted abstract will give a brief presentation at the WiP session, and may also give a demo and/or have a poster afterward.

Focus Areas: ICCPS 2018 work-in-progress abstracts, demos, and posters should focus on the same areas of the main conference. Please refer to the main conference's CFP link ( for details. Both theory and applications related works are encouraged. 

Abstract Submissions: All submitted abstracts must be in English and must be in a single PDF file following the same guidelines with the main conference ( 
Abstract manuscripts should have a main body with no more than 2 pages (including references). 

They will be evaluated based on the technical merit and innovation as well as their potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchanges of ideas at the conference. Both academic and industrial submissions are encouraged. All accepted abstracts will be published the ICCPS 2018 proceedings.

Submissions must be attached to an email sent by 23:59pm GMT-12 on Wednesday – Jan 24, 2018 (FIRM) to both ICCPS 2018 Program co-Chairs, Xue (Steve) Liu and Paulo Tabuada with the exact subject line: ICCPS 2018 WiP submission.

Posters and Demos

In addition to giving a brief presentation of the work, each accepted abstract will have the option of giving a demo or having a poster (or neither or both). The poster and demo session will provide a forum for researchers to showcase ongoing work and obtain feedback from the CPS community, in addition to the discussions at the WiP presentation session.

Authors wishing to give demos should clearly describe in their abstract what will be demonstrated and how the contributions will be illustrated interactively. If a demonstration requires wireless connectivity or other special arrangements (in addition to a table and power which will be provided to all demos), please describe them clearly in the abstract as well.

Authors wish to have a poster should also mention that in the abstract, along with a brief summary of what the poster will show.
