Paper submission

The WFCS workshop is seeking two kinds of submissions:

  • Regular Papers

    The WFCS workshop is seeking submissions of up to 10 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 WFCS 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 The submitted material (in English language) must be unpublished and not under review elsewhere.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.

    Regular paper submission

  • 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 its novelty and potential impact deserves to be shared with the community at an early stage. Accepted WIP papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
    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 papers will be published in the workshop's proceedings.
