Paper submission

The ETFA2018 conference is seeking two kinds of submissions:

  • Regular Papers
    The ETFA2018 conference is seeking submissions of up to 8 double-column pages reporting on novel and significant contributions to the field of industrial communication systems. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit a pdf version of their papers through the ETFA2017 submission system. The submitted material (in English language) must be unpublished and not under review elsewhere. Submissions must include e-mail addresses and fax/phone numbers of the corresponding author.
  • Work-in-Progress (WIP) sessions
    These sessions are intended for presentation of recent ideas and on-going works up to 4 double-column pages, describing research that has not yet produced the results required for a regular paper, but that due to its novelty and potential impact deserves to be shared with the community at an early stage. WIP submissions should be prepared according to the same guidelines as regular papers, and should be submitted through their own WIP electronic submission system. Accepted WIP papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

    Authors of accepted WiP paper will give a 5 minute oral presentation at the WiP sessions, and will also present an A0 poster during the poster sessions.
