The E-COSM 2021 program will comprise several types of presentations.

All papers, including regular papers, invited papers, position papers and industrial papers must be submitted electronically through the PaperPlaza Conference Manuscript Management System.

Please use IFAC templates and Style files for all paper submissions. It is recommended to use the LaTeX or Word template files available from the Author Guide. Only PDF files will be accepted during paper submission.

Regular Papers

Papers are invited in the form of regular manuscripts (limited to 6 pages). Note that short manuscripts are not considered.

Invited Session Papers

Proposals are sought from those wishing to organize an invited session. An invited session consists of 6 papers, which present a unifying theme from a diversity of viewpoints. The invited session papers must be submitted separately by the respective authors, which will be individually reviewed along with the proposal itself.

Position Papers

To foster active participation, we invite submissions of position papers, which should be at most 4 pages in length and formatted using standard conference format.

Industrial Papers

IFAC aims at increasing the industrial participation at all IFAC conferences. In this conference, we strongly encourage and solicit submissions of industrial papers, either regular or invited. Typically, it is an extended abstract of 2 pages, however longer contributions are welcome.
