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.

Submission instructions:

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: (i) authors’ names and institutions must be omitted; and (ii) 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.
