Call for Work-in-progress

EAI SmartSP 2023 invites Work-in-progress submissions that address innovative and important topics related to SmartSP topics.


Recent proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT), edge-fog-cloud computing, and interconnected networks envisions that smart cyber-physical system (CPS), especially smart vehicles (SV), are capable of innovative solutions to change our lifestyles. Unavoidably the potential benefits come along with new challenges and concerns on security and privacy. The First EAI International Conference on Security and Privacy in Cyber-Physical Systems and Smart Vehicles (SmartSP 2023) is a global forum for researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to present and discuss emerging ideas and trends in security and privacy issues in this exciting area. SmartSP 2023 seeks original papers focusing on theoretical analysis, vulnerability discovery, novel system architecture construction and design, emerging applications, experimental studies, and social impacts of CPS and SV. Both review/survey papers and technical papers are encouraged. SmartSP 2023 also welcomes short papers that summarize speculative breakthroughs, work-in-progress, industry-featured projects, open problems, new application challenges, visionary ideas, and preliminary studies.

All registered papers will be submitted for publishing by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, such as Web of Science,
Compendex, Scopus, DBLP, EU Digital Library, IO-Port, MatchSciNet, Inspec and Zentralblatt MATH.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to:

All accepted authors are eligible to submit an extended version in a fast track of:

Additional publication opportunities:


Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section). All the submissions need to be anonymous.

  • Regular papers should be up to 12-20 pages (content )in length. (excluding appendices, references, appreciation,…)
  • Short papers should be 6-11 pages (content) in length. (excluding appendices, references, appreciation,…)

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection.
