call for papers


ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS) is the premier forum for presenting and discussing the most significant recent technical research contributions in the field of CPS. In addition to the general track, we invite papers to be submitted to two new tracks of ICCPS 2023: (i) CPS for Social Good, and (ii) CPS Industrial Applications. 

  • General Track calls for papers with substantial technical research contributions to foundational CPS science, motivated by one or more CPS applications.
  • CPS for Social Good Track calls for papers that are driven by a societal need and describe the application, societal impact and innovations along with the description of technical contributions.
  • Industrial Applications Track calls for papers describing an industrial application and practice of CPS. It is expected that at least one co-author of a submitted paper should have industrial affiliations.

Across the three tracks, the topics of interest include (but are not limited to)

  • AI and Machine Learning for CPS including Safe Autonomy
  • Safety and Resilience for CPS
  • Architectures and Networking for CPS
  • Software platforms and systems for CPS
  • Foundations of CPS
  • Human-machine interactions
  • Sensing and monitoring
  • Specification languages and requirements
  • Design, optimization, and synthesis
  • Testing, verification, certification
  • Security, trust, and privacy in CPS
  • Tools, testbeds, demonstrations and deployments

Papers will be judged on soundness, significance, verifiability of claims, and presentation quality. The accepted papers will be included in an ACM conference proceeding. One of the accepted papers will be selected to win the Best Paper Award. 

In addition, a small subset of accepted papers will be invited for a special issue of ACM Transactions of Cyber-Physical Systems for a fast-track submission.


All submissions must be in English. Only original papers that are not submitted or published in other conferences or journals will be considered. ICCPS 2023 will employ a light-weight double-blind review for submitted papers, in which authors must adhere to two rules:

  1. authors’ names and institutions must be omitted; and
  2. reference to the authors’ own related work should be in the third person.

Manuscripts should have a main body with no more than 10 pages including references in ACM two-column conference proceedings style (link of templates), using US Letter (8.5-inch x 11 inch) paper size. An appendix of up to two additional pages may follow the main body of the paper.

Repeatability Package Submissions

Repeatability in cyber-physical systems research is critical. Therefore, this year we are strongly encouraging authors of accepted regular papers to submit a repeatability package. The program committee will evaluate this package. Authors of accepted repeatable packages will receive a repeatability badge that will be included on the first page of the published version. These papers will also be highlighted on the conference website. The submission date will be approximately a week after the notifications for the papers are sent out.

The Repeatability Evaluation Package (REP) consists of the following components:

  • A copy (in pdf format) of the submitted paper with an appendix that explains the following:
    • What elements of the paper are included in the REP (e.g., figures, tables, etc.). 
    • Instructions for installing the software.
    • Instructions for running the software. Ideally, there is a short and easy-to-run script for each computational component in the paper.
    • The system requirements for running the REP (e.g.: OS, compilers, environments, etc.). The document should also include a description of the host platform used to prepare and test the docker image or virtual machine.
    • Expected resource requirements. What architecture did you use for your experiments and how long is your code expected to run?
  • The software. This should be made available with a link (for example, to GitHub or Google Drive; please don’t use your personal website) that should remain accessible throughout the review process. Please prepare either a:
    • Docker image (preferred).
    • Virtual Machine. You may use VirtualBox to save a VM image as an OVA file.
    • If your experiments use open-source simulators, please enclose them within the virtual machine or docker image. 
    • If the previous options are not viable, please contact the RE PC chairs to make other arrangements. For example, if your software uses other licensed software (e.g., Matlab) which cannot be included in a VM or Docker image.
  • Any data used in your experiments
    • Provide data as a tar.gz file with instructions for mounting it into the docker image or the virtual machine and passing the data as input to the code. 
    • If the data is large, then please share it using an appropriate cloud storage solution. You mustn’t share any proprietary data that cannot be made open source.

Each REP needs to achieve satisfactory performance at the following three criteria in order to get the repeatability badge:

  • Coverage. How many of the computational components in the paper can be reproduced?
  • Documentation quality. Is the REP clearly documented, including system requirements, resource requirements, installation instructions and execution instructions?
  • Ease of reuse. Is the REP generally easy to reuse, i.e., is the code well documented, are the scripts clear and easy to run?
