CySWaterwill be organized as a single-track forum, featuring the following categoriesof submissions:

  • Poster/DemonstrationPapers (max 2 pages, letter size, double column format) will be evaluated against theircontribution on practical realizations, testbeds and applications of CPSarchitectures for Water Networks. Preliminary reports on exciting experimentalworks and / or technology use cases are also welcome.

Authors of accepted manuscripts will be invitedto present their work in the oral/poster sessions of the workshop.

For both categories of manuscripts, submissions can only be uploaded as PDF files. Click here to submit your manuscript.

For all contributions, a blind, peer-reviewedpolicy will be adopted.

Double Blind-Review Policy

The review process will by double-blind and thus the identities of theauthors will be not available to the reviewers. Prospective authors areresponsible for preserving the anonymity of their submissions by taking thefollowing measures:

  • Remove names and affiliations from the manuscript.
  • Remove acknowledgments of identifying contributors and / funding sources. These can be added at the camera-ready version of the papers accepted for presentation.
  • Prospective authors should refer to their previous work, the same waythey would refer to related works by other authors. Authors should not omitreferences for the sake of anonymity. For instance, instead of "In [1] weexamined X and Y…" authors can use "In [1] X and Y was examined…".
  • Authors should remove any potential metadata from their submitted PDFthat could give away their identity. This is also extended to the file name ofthe submitted PDF.
  • Papers with the same title and abstract should not be available onpublic websites and public mailing lists.
