CyPhy'16 -- Call for Papers

CyPhy'16 will be held in conjunction with ESWEEK'16 on October 6 2016, Pittsburgh, PA, USA. The workshop brings together researchers and practitioners working on modeling, simulation, and evaluation of Cyber Physical Systems (CPSs), based on a broad interpretation of these areas, to collect and exchange expertise from a diverse set of disciplines. The workshop places particular focus on techniques and components to enable and support virtual prototyping and testing.

Topics of interest include CPS aspects pertaining to foundations; methods; case studies and tools. Additional information on the workshop's scope can be found here.

Submissions Types 
Span 1) research papers (max. 15 pages); 2) positions papers (max. 4 pages, not published); and 3) tool demonstrations (max. 10 pages). Research papers will be judged for technical novelty and scientific merit. Any previous publication in any form must be explicitly identified and cited on the first page of the submission. Papers in all other categories will be judged on novelty, clarity, accessibility, and suitability for a high quality presentation and discussion at the workshop. 

Submissions of type 1 and 3 will be published after the workshop in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, by Springer. If the quality of the submissions warrants, a special issue of an archival journal will be negotiated for the best submissions (subject to confirmation, and an additional round of review).

Important Dates 
Submission deadline: July 10, 2016
Notifications: August 24, 2016

Submission Guidelines
Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair. Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS Style, not exceed the respective page limits (including figures and references), and be submitted in PDF. Except for regular research papers, the paper category must be indicated at the end of the title in parenthesis at the time of the initial submission and in the final camera ready version. Papers not adhering to the format or page limit may be rejected without a review.

Simultaneous submission to other venues with a formal publication (workshops, conferences, symposia, and journals) is not allowed. Duplicated submissions or other types of plagiarism will result in rejection and a report will be sent to the corresponding institution's dean or manager.
