The Brief Presentations (BP) Track offers researchers and practitioners an opportunity to present their industry-relevant experience, ongoing work, published yet not presented papers, and demos, to the RTAS and broader CPS-IoT Week audience. There are four sub-tracks in BP: BIP (Brief Industry Paper), WiP (Work in Progress), J1 (Journal first), and Demo. Papers accepted in BIP, WiP, and Demo will be included in the main RTAS Proceedings with IEEE. Extended abstracts accepted in J1 will appear online. The BP Track inherits the scope of technical areas from RTAS 2024. The review process is double-anonymous. One author of an accepted submission must register for the conference and make a presentation.
Timeline (all expressed as AoE)
- Submission deadline: 25 January 2024
- Notification of acceptance: 1 March 2024
- Camera-ready deadline: 9 March 2024
Brief Industry Paper (BIP): The BIP sub-track welcomes industry-relevant and unpublished work, including existing research ideas applied to practical applications, implementation results, outcomes of development projects, case studies, challenges, or positions. There must be at least one author with an industry affiliation. Reviewers will not criticise BIP submissions for lacking theoretical contributions. BIP papers are limited to 4 pages and must include “Brief Industry Paper” in the title (i.e., Brief Industry Paper: Title of the Paper). Authors may refer to a more comprehensive technical report anonymously posted online if needed. Confidentiality of sensitive information is understood.
Work in Progress (WiP): The WiP sub-track welcomes ongoing and unpublished work, discussing early ideas about problems with existing solutions or open problems, new research directions, or trends in practice. The review will focus on originality and potential impact. Solutions and experimental validation are not necessary. WiP papers should not exceed 4 pages and must include “Work in Progress” in the title (i.e., Work in Progress: Title of the Paper). Shorter submissions than the page limit will not be penalized.
Journal-first (J1) welcomes extended abstracts (2 pages) of papers published or accepted recently in journals, which have not been presented in a conference. Through J1 sub-track, RTAS provides an opportunity for the authors to engage directly with the community and offers the RTAS attendees an additional dimension to the research track program. Please note that the submission title must start with “Journal-first” (i.e., Journal-first: Title of the Paper), a footnote with the citation of the journal paper must be included and the submission should not have already been presented at, and is not under consideration for, journal-first programs of other conferences.
Demo: The Demo sub-track welcomes extended abstracts with at most 2 pages describing demonstrations of experiments from published papers (including those accepted to RTAS 2024), prototypes, or tools. The submission must include “Demo” in the title (i.e., Demo: Title of the Paper). Authors of accepted abstracts are required to present a video of the demonstration in the conference.
