The Steering Committee of Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things
(CPS-IoT) Week calls for proposals on hosting the 2020 edition of the
multi-conference event. CPS-IoT Week is a premier event on presenting the
latest research results and discussing future directions of cyber-physical
systems and Internet of Things. It is typically held in Aprils annually. It
brings together 4 top conferences, HSCC, ICCPS, IPSN, and RTAS, as well as
up to 20 satellite events, such as poster and demo sessions, workshops,
tutorials, competitions, industrial exhibitions, and summit forums. CPS-IoT
Week 2020 is expected to draw more than 800 attendees from universities,
industry, and government organizations around the world.

The proposals will be considered in *two phases*. First, we call for
pre-proposals that include:

- Proposed dates of the conference, including the main conference days and
workshop day(s).

- Proposed city information, including typical weather in Aprils, air
transportation options, local natural and cultural attractions.

- A short description of the local industry, research, and education
communities related to CPS/IoT.

- Type of conference facility in mind: university campus, conventions
centers, or hotels, and their capacities to host all parallel conferences
and satellite events.

- Type of lodging options in mind.

- Key organizers, such as General Chair and Local Arrangement Chair, their
familiarity with CPS-IoT Weeks, track records on attracting sponsors, and
experience organizing similar events.

- Any additional information that may help the steering committee to make
decisions, such as co-location with industrial Expo events.

For entries that generate enough interests, the steering committee will
further solicit full proposals that provide additional information, such as:

- Possible facility setting, especially space arrangements for the main
program, demos and posters, competitions, and workshops/tutorials.

- Attendee cost estimate, such as hotel rate and transportation options.

- Social functions, such as reception and banquet options.

- Potential financial supports, industrial sponsorship, or risks.

Proposals from all regions are encouraged to submit.

Key dates:

- Deadline for pre-proposals: *Nov. 16th, 2018*

- Notification for full proposal requests: Dec. 1st, 2018

- Deadline for full proposals: Feb. 15th, 2019

- Final decision: Feb. 28th, 2019
