As computing and communication become faster, cheaper, and more readily available in energy-efficient platforms, the potential for advanced capabilities in engineered systems becomes manifest. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled, and integrated by computing and communication. The deployment of CPS is profoundly transforming how we interact with the physical world, just as the world wide web transformed how we interact with one another. Further harnessing the capabilities of CPS will have enormous societal and economic impact.
ICCPS is the premier forum for presenting and discussing the most significant recent technical research contributions in the field of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). As before, ICCPS will be part of CPS-IoT Week, Milan 2022. We invite high quality submissions of technical research papers covering the full spectrum of CPS. Topics of interest include:
Papers will be judged on soundness, significance, verifiability of claims, and presentation quality.
All submissions must be in English. Only original papers that are not submitted or published in other conferences or journals will be considered. ICCPS 2021 will employ a light-weight double-blind review for submitted papers, in which authors must adhere to two rules:
Manuscripts should have a main body with no more than 10 pages including references in ACM two-column conference style, using US Letter (8.5-inch x 11-inch) paper size (template). An appendix of up to two additional pages may
follow the main body of the paper, within the same submitted .pdf file. The paper must be in the same format as that in the final published proceedings (without author information).
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 components:
Authors of accepted papers will have an opportunity to have their research artifacts evaluated for reproducibility of results.
Awards and Special Issues
A distinguished paper award will be presented. A subset of accepted papers will be solicited for a Special issue of a related journal. One paper will be nominated for a Research Highlight in the Communications of the ACM
