The Fifth International Workshop on
Design, Modeling and Evaluation of Cyber Physical Systems (CyPhy'15)

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

October 8, 2015

(Held in conjunction with ESWEEK 2015)



Cyber physical systems (CPSs) combine computing and networking power with physical components. They enable innovation in a wide range of domains including robotics; smart homes, vehicles, and buildings; medical implants; and future-generation sensor networks. CyPhy'15 brings together researchers and practitioners working on modeling, simulation, and evaluation of CPS, based on a broad interpretation of these areas, to collect and exchange expertise from a diverse set of disciplines. The workshop places particular focus on techniques and components to enable and support virtual prototyping and testing.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following aspects of cyber-physical systems:

- Foundations: models of computation, modeling and simulation languages for hybrid and cyber-­physical systems, including hybrid automata and hybrid process theory, as well as other integrations of control-­theoretic and discrete-­event models;

- Methods: Specifications and evaluation of processes for rigorous modeling, testing, simulation, and verification of new cyber-­physical systems;

- Case studies: Development of industrial or research ­oriented cyber­-physical systems in domains such as robotics, smart systems (homes, vehicles, buildings), medical and healthcare devices, future generation networks; and

- Tools: Evaluation of novel research tools, comparisons of state of the art tools in industrial practice.

Important Dates

Submissions: June 10, 2015

Notifications: July 10, 2015

Camera-Ready: August 3, 2015

Workshop: October 8, 2015

Submission Types

Submissions types:
1) research papers (max. 15 pages, LNCS format);
2) positions papers (max. 4 pages, not published); and
3) tool demonstrations (max. 10 pages, LNCS format).

Research papers will be judged for technical novelty and scientific merit. Any previous publication in any form must be explicitly identified and cited on the first page of the submission. Papers in all other categories will be judged on novelty, clarity, accessibility, and suitability for a high quality presentation and discussion at the workshop.


Submissions of type 1 and 3 will be published in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, by Springer.

If the quality of the submissions warrants, a special issue of an archival journal will be negotiated for the best submissions (subject to confirmation, and an additional round of review).

Submission Instructions

Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS style, not exceed the respective page limits (including figures and references), and be submitted in PDF format through the following submission website.

Except for regular research papers, the paper category must be indicated at the end of the title in parenthesis at the time of the initial submission and in the final camera ready version.

Simultaneous submission to other venues with a formal publication (workshops, conferences, symposia, and journals) is not allowed. Duplicated submissions or other types of plagiarism will result in rejection and a report will be sent to the corresponding institution's dean or manager.

Papers not adhering to the format or page limit may be rejected without a review.
