Workshop Proposal Format

The 2019 NSF Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Principal Investigator's (PI) Meeting will be hosting a set of workshops and invites the submission of workshop proposals. Workshops should emphasize innovative new topics that can drive the future of the CPS research vision. Workshops should propose innovative CPS topics of particular interest to the community, and should include a mix of invited presentations and panel discussions that encourage the participation of attendees in active participation. Workshops will be 120 minutes each and run during the main CPS PI Meeting program on the first day. Each workshop will summarize and report the main discussion points to all CPS PI meeting participants during the Day 2 of the meeting. Please note we will not be able to support travel for workshop panelists.

Each workshop proposal must include:

  • Proposal Content (5 page maximum):
    • Title of the Workshop
    • Description of the technical issues covered, emphasizing the innovations highlighted in the proposed workshop
    • A description of how the workshop will promote active discussion among the participants
    • Planned format of the workshop. Unique, creative, and novel workshop formats are strongly encouraged
    • Names of potential participants, such as planned speakers and panelists (indication that speakers accepted to participate is a plus). A diverse set of speakers and participants is expected for workshops that will be held.
  • Workshop Organizers:
    • Names, affiliation, and contact information, limiting up to two workshop chairs
    • Short biographies for each of the organizers (up to 200 words)
