The ACM SIGBED International Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT) brings together researchers and developers from academia, industry, and government to advance the science, engineering, and technology of embedded software development. Since 2001, EMSOFT has been the premier venue for cutting-edge research in the design and analysis of software that interacts with physical processes. Specifically, the conference has a long-standing tradition of presenting results on cyber-physical systems, which integrate computation, networking, and physical dynamics.

EMSOFT invites you to submit original research articles for LB (up to 4 pages) and WIP (up to 2 pages) papers, in IEEE/ACM 10 pt double-column format. Both LB and WIP papers will go through 2 rounds of reviews. If accepted, LB papers will be published in IEEE Embedded Systems Letters, while WIP papers will be published in ESWEEK proceedings of the respective conferences. Authors of accepted LB and WIP papers will present a poster of their work, and a lightning talk at ESWEEK. Authors of accepted LB papers will also need to submit a 3-minute video with their final camera-ready version (to be uploaded to the submission system following instructions communicated in the acceptance notifications).

Late-Breaking (LB) Result papers provide a venue for quick dissemination of research ideas to the embedded systems community and are expected to represent complete and mature works written in a condensed form.

Work-in-Progress (WIP) papers are intended as a venue to report early or ongoing research activities representing work that has not been fully realized or developed, for which full empirical data may not yet be available, or that has not yet reached a level
