CPPS 2016

Call for Papers

The intention of the workshop is to address these research questions at all levels of CPS within the domain of industrial production, ranging from hardware and production systems to value-adding software services. The aim is to bring together experts from various fields and to carry out a multi-disciplinary workshop based on the symbiosis of informatics, engineering and other fields of science. Hence, the workshop is not limited to a particular field of research. Work from the fields of mechanical and industrial engineering, management sciences, computer sciences, electrical engineering, and information technology is eligible for the workshop if the presented work contributes to the advance in CPPS.

Important Dates

Submission: January 31, 2016 February 10, 2016 (extended deadline)
Author Notification: March 9, 2016

Post-workshop proceedings version: TBA


The topics to be covered in the workshop will range across the complete CPPS lifecycle, including, but not limited to the following topics:


We are looking forward to three types of contributions for CPPS 2016 – full papers, short papers, and use case papers. All papers must be submitted following the instructions at the CPPS 2016 submission site, handled by EasyChair.

Submissions will be reviewed by at least three reviewers each in order to assure general fitness regarding content and scope and to give feedback to the authors. Depending on innovation, technical soundness and presentation clarity, papers may be rejected or accepted as full papers or short papers. Accepted papers shall be included in the CPSWeek workshop proceedings (published electronically in the IEEE XPlore Digital Library) and presented at the workshop. At least one of the authors needs to register for the CPSWeek.

Full Papers

Workshop papers are regular contributions that describe original solutions in field of CPPS. These papers must not exceed 8 pages (IEEE style).

Short Papers

Short papers should draft a new idea or provide information about work in progress and put it up for discussion at the workshop. Short papers should must not exceed 4 pages (IEEE style). The main idea and the relation to existing work should be contained.

Use-Case Papers

Use case papers explicitly aim at describing real-world use cases. Use case papers can be either submitted as full or short papers.
