The 7th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS 2016)


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



Paper Submission Deadline: January 15, 2016

Acceptance Decisions: February 8, 2016

Camera-Ready Abstracts: mid-February 2016



As digital computing and communication becomes faster, cheaper and available in packages which are smaller and use less power, these capabilities are becoming embedded in many objects and structures in the physical environment. Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by such computing and communication. 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, and 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.


CPS foundations (CPS) focus on core science and technology for developing fundamental principles that underpin the integration of cyber and physical elements. Application domains include transportation, energy, water, agriculture, ecology, supply-chains, medical and assistive technology, sensor and social networks, and robotics. Among the relevant research areas are security, control, optimization, machine learning, game theory, mechanism design, mobile and cloud computing, model-based design, verification, data mining / analytics, signal processing, and human-in-the-loop shared or supervisory control.


Secure and resilient infrastructure CPS focus on the confluence of cyber-security, privacy, and CPS that impacts the operation of critical infrastructures such as the smart grid, water distribution, transportation, healthcare, building automation, and process control. Of particular interest is foundational work that cuts across multiple application areas or advances the scientific understanding of underlying principles for the development of high confidence (secure, reliable, robust, and trustworthy) networked CPS.




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.


Demo Proposals, Poster abstracts, and WiP abstract should be submitted through the submission site listed at the conference website. The 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.




POSTERS: 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.


DEMOS: 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. Video of demo proposals are strongly encouraged, but not required. 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.


WORK-IN-PROGRESS: 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.
