Guidelines for Authors

All papers need to be submitted electronically through the CYBCONF
2017 workshops and special sessions' online submission website
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cybconf2017wsss, 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 The materials presented in the papers should not be published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 8 pages (or 10
pages with over length charge) including figures and references using
the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns,
single-spaced, 10pt). The manuscript templates can be found at
https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html.
More detailed guidelines for authors of the IEEE Computer Society
Proceedings can be found at http://www.computer.org/web/cs-cps/.

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 ACM
Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems, IEEE Internet of Things
Journal, IEEE Sensors Journal, IEEE Systems Journal, IET
Cyber-Physical Systems: Theory & Applications, IET Information
Security, International Journal of Information Security (Springer),
Computer & Security (Elsevier), Journal of Information Security and
Applications (Elsevier), and EURASIP Journal on Information
Security. 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
SPCPS 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).
