RIOT 2018 Call for Papers

Practitioners and researchers from government, industry, and academia are invited to submit short papers for review by our program committee. At least one author of accepted papers will be expected to register and present the paper at the workshop. Please review the planned topics, submission guidelines, and important dates in preparation for your submission.

RIOT encourages submissions relating to this year's theme ("Crossing Boundaries and Increasing Impact") in two general categories: (1) research or experience papers up to ten pages in length and (2) vision papers up to six pages in length. Short papers (four pages) will be accepted in each category.

Paper Topics

We encourage research, industry and vision papers that specifically call out issues, challenges and/or solutions to requirements engineering problems in the Internet of Things (IoT) or Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). This includes challenges for requirements elicitation, modeling, testing, and change management. In addition, the following topics are of interest:

 - Privacy, security and social or ethical aspects of IoT and CPS, e.g., due to real-time, longitudinal monitoring and pervasive/ ubiquitous deployment;
 - Regulatory compliance challenges, e.g., due to the decentralized design and management of IoT and CPS;
 - Modeling environmental factors for IoT/CPS, including analyzing and managing requirements for low-power and limited computation devices;
 - Requirements testing for low-power and sensor-based devices and their composite systems;
 - Uncertainty in IoT and CPS, e.g., due to asynchronous, faulty or untrusted components in a CPS;
 - Case studies or reports on the long-term implications of IoT and CPS for society;

Submission Guidelines

Authors may submit papers in three general categories:

 - Research/Experience papers (10 pages max.)
 - Vision papers (6 pages)
 - Short Papers in each category (4 pages)

Submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the program committee for relevance to the workshop topics of interest. Preference will be given to submissions that emphasize informed, technically sound descriptions of important challenges and problems as opposed to proposed solutions. Accepted submissions will be archived in a workshop proceeding in IEEE Xplore: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/ <http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/>

Papers must be formatted according to the IEEE formatting instructions for conference papers. There are several versions of the IEEE style. Please make sure you use exactly the versions that are linked below.

LaTeX users: please use the LaTeX class file IEEEtran v1.8 (Available here: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/IEEEtran/IEEEtran.cls <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/IEEEtran/IEEEtran.cls>) and the following configuration (without option 'compsoc' or 'compsocconf'):


Word users: please use this Word template: https://www.conference-publishing.com/templates/MSW_USltr_format.doc <https://www.conference-publishing.com/templates/MSW_USltr_format.doc> (See also the corresponding PDF file for comparison: https://www.conference-publishing.com/templates/MSW_USltr_format.pdf <https://www.conference-publishing.com/templates/MSW_USltr_format.pdf>).

Make sure your paper:

 - does not exceed the page limit specified,
 - is in PDF format,
 - is in letter page size,
 - does not have page numbers,
 - has all fonts embedded in the PDF file,
 - uses only scalable font types (like Type 1, TrueType) --- bit-mapped font types (like Type 3) are not acceptable,
 - has all figures embedded in vector graphics (if not possible, use a high-resolution bitmap format of at least 300 dpi; do not use JPG, but a lossless format like PNG or GIF),
 - has all text in figures and tables large enough and readable when printed,
 - has a caption for every figure or table,
 - has the title and all headings properly capitalized (cf. Section Help: https://www.conference-publishing.com/Help.php <https://www.conference-publishing.com/Help.php>),
 - has no orphans and widows (cf. Section Help: https://www.conference-publishing.com/Help.php <https://www.conference-publishing.com/Help.php>), and
 - does not use footnote references in the abstract.

The use of color in regular body text (e.g., in order to emphasize words, URLs, or citations) is discouraged due to reduced readability and greyscale printing. The use of color is allowed in figures, tables, listings, and in non-body text, such as source code, XML snippets, etc.

Papers must be submitted electronically in Adobe PDF format to the EasyChair service: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=riot2018 <https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=riot2018>
