HSCC 2020

23rd ACM International Conference on
Hybrid Systems: Computation and Control

April 21-24, 2020

Sydney Australia

The Conference

Welcome to the home page of the 23rd ACM International Conference on Hybrid Systems: Computation and Control (HSCC 2020). HSCC 2020 is the 23rd in a series of conferences on all aspects of hybrid systems. It is dedicated to advancing design and analysis techniques that bridge control theory and computer science, and is expanding to new domains in security and privacy and in systems biology. The conference covers the range from theoretical results to practical applications and experiences in cyber-physical systems (CPS), mixed signal circuits, robotics, infrastructure networks, and biological models.

HSCC 2020 will be part of the thirteenth Cyber Physical Systems Week (CPS Week), and co-located with the International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS), Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN), the Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS), Conference on Internet-of-Things Design and Implementation (IOTDI), and related workshops.

Important dates

đź“ś Paper submission information

HSCC invites submissions in the categories of (1) regular papers including special track papers, and (2) case study and tool papers. We will employ a double blind reviewing process and will have a rebuttal phase to provide authors the opportunity to reply to reviewer concerns.

Regular Papers

Regular papers including papers submitted to three special tracks.

  1. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in CPS
  2. Design Automation for CPS
  3. Autonomy and Robotics
  • 10 pages max*

  • 10pt font

  • two-column ACM format

Tool and Case Study Papers

Tool papers will be judged on the significance, clarity, and novelty of the implemented tool/technique described in the paper.

Case study papers should report the evaluation of a technique or tool on a challenging application and/or benchmarks.

  • 6 pages max*

  • 10pt font

  • two-column ACM format

*Excluding references

Templates for the ACM format are available for Microsoft Word and LaTeX here.

Submission Guidelines

Submission website: EasyChair submission link. Paper submissions are encouraged to be preceded by an abstract submission. Additional information on publication policies are given below.

Reproducability and Repeatability

We consider reproducibility and repeatability of the results presented in the tool/case study papers an important aspect of such papers. While submission of a repeatability evaluation package is not mandatory, we strongly encourage the authors to submit such a package at the time of paper submission. Tool or case study papers with a repeatability evaluation package will be judged on the merit of both the paper itself, but also on the repeatability of the presented results. Tool/Case study papers not accompanied by a RE package would be judged on the strength of the benchmarks (e.g. large-scale industrial/proprietary benchmarks), or the role of the tool as a component in a complex tool-chain ecosystem. Instructions on preparing and submitting the repeatability evaluation package can be found here.

The deadline for submission of the repeatability package is five days after the paper submission deadline.

Note for tool/case study paper authors on double-blind process: While we expect the tool/case study papers submitted to the main conference to follow the double-blind instructions, the RE packages do not need to be anonymized. Therefore please remove any links to a repository that could reveal your identity from the paper but include these in your RE package submission. RE packages and papers will be evaluated by different committees. RE committee's findings will be communicated to the regular reviewers of the paper before the final decisions are made.

Conference Scope

Hybrid Systems: Computation and Control (HSCC) 2020 is the 23rd in a series of conferences focusing on original research on concepts, tools, and techniques from computer science, control theory, and applied mathematics for the analysis and control of hybrid dynamical systems with an emphasis on computational aspects. By drawing on strategies from computation and control, the hybrid systems field offers techniques that are applicable to both man-made cyber-physical systems (ranging from small robots to global infrastructure networks) and natural systems (ranging from biochemical networks to physiological models). Papers in the conference are expected to range over a wide spectrum of topics from theoretical results to practical considerations, and from academic research to industrial adoption.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Special tracks

This year, HSCC will have three special tracks on interdisciplinary topics of increasing interest and importance to CPS: (1) Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in CPS (autonomous and semi-autonomous CPS, learning-based CPS, deep learning, intersection of robotics/AI and CPS, etc.), and (2) Design Automation for CPS (modeling, specification, verification, synthesis, composition, hierarchy, languages, etc. for CPS design). (3) Autonomy and Robotics. The submission requirements and review process for special track papers will be the same as regular papers. The main reason to have a special track is to broaden the HSCC pool of papers in the direction of these topics.
