Information for contributors – submitting an abstract, presentation and paper

The organising committee encourages experts to submit abstracts focusing on real business case studies / scenarios, innovative tools and techniques and report on work completed or nearing final stages, or efforts that have concluded with an important outcome of interest.

Please do not submit any sales pitches as they will be rejected.

This year contributors have two options:

  • Submit the abstract and Power Point presentation (participation is free but subject to confirmation by the conference committee). In this case delivered Power Point presentations will be published in the IET Digital Library only
  • Submit the abstract, Power Point Presentation and full peer-reviewed paper. Contributors should register at the discounted presenting speaker rate and their full papers will be published in IET Inspec and the conference proceedings (subject to confirmation by the conference committee). Best papers will be recommended for publishing in the IET Journal - Cyber-Physical Systems: Theory & Applications
