Guidelines for Authors

All papers need to be submitted electronically through the CYBCONF 2017 workshops and special sessions' online submission website (, select the "Security and Privacy in Cyber-Physical Systems" track) with PDF format. The materials presented in the papers should not be published or under submission elsewhere. Each paper is limited to 6 pages (or 8 pages with over length charge) including figures and references using the IEEE Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced, 10pt). More guidelines for preparing final camera-ready papers can be found at

Presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings, available on IEEE Xplore and submitted to be indexed in CPCi (ISI conferences and part of Web of Science) and Engineering Index (EI).

Post-Workshop Journal Special Issues

After the workshop's program is fixed, the workshop organizers will apply for a special issue at a prestigious journal such as IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems, IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Magazine, User Modeling and User-Adapted Interaction, Behavior Research Methods (Springer), International Journal of Human-Computer Studies (Elsevier), Computers in Human Behavior (Elsevier), Journal of Visual Communication & Image Representation (Elsevier). Authors of selected best papers from the workshop will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to the special issue with a post-workshop deadline.

In addition to the above planned journal special issue dedicated to the workshop, CYBCONF 2017 will also invite authors of selected papers (presented at the main conference and associated workshops including PRACTICE 2017) to extend their papers for recommended submissions and publications in the following prestigious journals or their special issues: IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics, IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Magazine, Evolving Systems (Springer), and Peer-to-Peer Networking and Applications (Springer).
