Call for Papers
The organizers want to promote SYSID 2021 as a meeting place where scientists and engineers from several research communities can meet to discuss issues related to the scope of the symposium.
The scientific program will consist of plenary lectures, regular sessions, invited sessions and software sessions. Prospective authors and organizers of invited sessions are invited to submit contributions on http://ifac.papercept.net/conferences/scripts/start.pl
using the templates which can be found on https://www.ifac-control.org/events/author-guide
All contributions will be subject to review and assessment by the International Programme Committee, who will make a selection of submission to be included in the conference program
Regular papers must present original, unpublished work which falls into the scope of the symposium and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts are limited to six double-column pages.
Authors can also submit extended abstracts of at least 2000 words, describing preliminary work and/or with survey/tutorial content that will be subject to review and will be included in the preprints (USB-key) but will not appear in the on-line conference proceedings.
The International Programme Committee encourages the submission of invited sessions with sets of six invited papers on a well-defined subject of current interest. These papers must present original, unpublished work and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.
An invited session should present a cohesive and comprehensive focus on a topic relevant to the scope of the symposium. It may start with a tutorial presentation which can be alotted a double time slot. In this case five papers are sufficient to compose a session.
Authors of invited papers must also submit their papers.
How to submit an invited session proposal
Organizers of invited sessions should perform the following steps:
1. Contact potential authors to obtain a list of authors, paper titles and abstracts
2. Write a four page session proposal. This should describe the theme and content, demonstrate its coherence, and argue its significance and rele- vance. The proposed session should profile 6 specified papers (or 5 when the first paper is a tutorial). At a minimum, the proposal should contain the following information:
The title of the session
The name and full contact details of the session organizer
A description of the session theme and an argument supporting its significance
A list of the proposed session contributions, including titles, authors, and corresponding author of each paper
The abstract of each paper
3. Generate a PDF
4. Submit your proposal through the PaperPlaza Conference Manuscript Management System. As part of this process, you will be provided with an invited session code.
5. Pass the invited session code to the corresponding author of each paper in the session. Authors will need to specify this number when submitting their papers.
Submission of Invited papers
Invited papers are solicited by an organizer of an invited session. The invited session code will be needed to complete the submission
Invited papers must present original, unpublished work which falls into the scope of the symposium and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All invited papers will be subject to review and assessment by the International Programme Committee,
Software session papers
Software session papers are papers presenting the latest developments in software for system identification and related topics in control but also interactive learning tools for system identification. This includes, but is not limited to, new software toolboxes, or recent developments of existing program packages. The presented software should be complete in the sense that it can be made available to the public under certain conditions. Software session papers must present original, unpublished work which falls into the scope of the symposium and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All software session papers will be subject to review and assessment by the International Programme Committee, Manuscripts are limited to six double- column pages. These may also be extended abstracts rather than full papers, but must be at least 2000 words, and convey sufficient details as to allow an informed peer review. Extended abstracts will appear in the USB-key containing the preprints, but will not be included in the conference proceedings. See Copyright conditions below for further information on the proceedings. Authors are expected to bring their own laptops for demonstrations.
All papers accepted for publication will be distributed to the participants on a USB-key together with a printed book of abstracts including the final programme.
