Papers are invited in the form of regular manuscripts (6 proceedings pages). Papers must be submitted through the PaperCept Conference Management System and must be formatted in accordance with the submission policy. For the purpose of review only, manuscripts up to eight (8) pages long in the standard two-column ECC conference format will be considered. If accepted, final manuscripts are limited to six (6) pages. Accepted papers exceeding the normal length may be included in the proceedings upon payment of over-length page charges for each page in excess of six pages, up to a maximum of two additional pages.
Invited Session Proposals
Proposals are invited from participants who wish to organize invited sessions. An invited session comprises six thematically coherent papers. The session should be composed in order to achieve added value over the mere presentation of individual papers, by focusing for example on emerging challenges or different angles on established problems that one would not expect to see in a regular contributed paper session. Proposals for invited sessions must be submitted through the PaperCept Conference Management System.
Proposals are limited to six (6) pages in the standard two-column ECC conference format and should contain a summary describing the motivation and relevance of the proposed session, as well as a short overview of the individual papers and how they fit into the overall theme. The invited session proposal have to be submitted before the invited papers of the session. Upon submission of the proposal the session organizer will receive a session code, which should be communicated to the authors of the invited papers for the submission of their contributions.
We advise invited session organizers to submit their proposals at least one week before the conference deadline in order to allow sufficient time for the submission of the invited papers.
The six invited session papers must be submitted separately by their authors using the session code provided by the invited session organizer. Invited papers will undergo a review process similar to that of contributed papers. Therefore, they should be of comparable high quality and should abide by the same formatting and submission rules; in particular, brief abstracts or extended abstracts will most likely be rejected. Invited papers must be submitted through the PaperCept Conference Management System and must be formatted in accordance with the submission policy. For the purpose of review only, manuscripts up to eight (8) pages in the standard two-column ECC conference format will be considered. If accepted, the final manuscripts are limited to a length of six (6) pages. Accepted papers exceeding the normal length may be included in the proceedings upon payment of over-length page charges for each page in excess of six pages, up to a maximum of two additional pages. If an invited session is accepted but some of its constituent papers are rejected, the Program Committee reserves the right to replace the rejected invited papers with compatible contributed papers. Conversely, accepted invited papers from a rejected invited session will be included in regular contributed paper sessions.
For further information please contact the Invited Sessions Chair.
Pre-Conference Workshops and Tutorials
Pre-conference Workshops and Tutorials will be held on Tuesday, June 12, 2018. Conference participants can attend pre-conference Workshops and Tutorials for an additional fee.
- Workshops present the latest advances, open issues and challenges on research areas of interest to the systems and control community and promote active participation and discussion among attendees.
- Tutorials involve formal presentation of the principles (e.g., theory, methodology, and tools) behind an established research area to enhance the knowledge and skills of the participants in that area.
We particularly welcome proposals that cover material or use presentation formats that are not found within the main conference for both workshops and tutorials that increase the interest for the event, enhance interaction and discussion amongst participants, and make useful connections to fields outside of control.
Interested organizers of Workshops and Tutorials should submit a brief proposal through the PaperCept Conference Management System. A proposal should include the title, list of instructors and their affiliations, an overview of the event (e.g., abstract, keywords, objectives, motivation, content, structure, and tentative program), and intended audience, as well as role and brief bio of each instructor. The proposal should also clarify the type and duration of the event (specify workshop or tutorial, half-day or full-day).
The Program Committee reserves the right to reject workshop/tutorial proposals (based on content), or to cancel accepted proposals (due to low numbers of pre-registrations). In the event of a cancellation, the event fees will be refunded in full.
