Conference Scope

Hybrid Systems: Computation and Control (HSCC) 2019 is the 22nd 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:

- Mathematical foundations, computability and complexity

- Analysis, verification, validation, and testing

- Modeling paradigms and techniques

- Design, synthesis, planning, and control

- Programming and specification languages

- Network science and network-based control

- Security, privacy, and resilience for cyber-physical systems with focus on computation and control

- Safe autonomy, Artificial intelligence and Machine learning in CPS

- Software tools for the above topics

- Applications and industrial case studies in: automotive, transportation, autonomous systems, avionics, energy and power, robotics, medical devices, manufacturing, systems and synthetic biology, models for the life sciences, and other related areas.

New this Year! Special track papers on Safe autonomy, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning We invite regular submissions in topics related to safe autonomy, AI and ML in CPS. Formatting instructions are same as that for regular papers, however, the authors will indicate their interest in the special track during the submission. We will include these in a special session at HSCC along with few invited speakers related to this topic.

Submission guidelines

HSCC invites submissions in the categories of (1) regular papers including special track papers in Safe autonomy, AI and ML for CPS, 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.


- HSCC will have an ACM SIGBED Best Paper Award, all regular papers will be automatically eligible for this award.

- HSCC will institute an "HSCC Test-Of-Time Award". The rules for eligibility, nomination and selection of the paper for this award can be found here.

- Repeatability evaluation: Papers that pass repeatability evaluation process will receive the "artifact evaluated" badge and there will be a Best RE Award.

- Best Demo/Poster: All demos and posters accepted for presentation at HSCC'19 will be eligible for the best demo/poster award.
