EDTConf 2024
Mon 23 - Tue 24 September 2024 Linz, Austria

The International Conference on Engineering Digital Twins (EDTconf) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners on digital twins, from both academia and industry to shape the future of systematically designing, developing, evolving, maintaining, and validating digital twins.

Important Dates

  • Abstract submission deadline: June 19, 2024
  • Paper submission deadline: June 24, 2024
  • Notification of acceptance: July 29, 2024
  • Camera-ready submission: August 19, 2024

Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Modeling concepts and languages, methods, and tools for developing DTs
  • DevOps for DTs/DTs for DevOps
  • Quality assurance for and evaluation of DTs
  • DT modeling, simulation, and co-simulation of CPS
  • Deployment and operation of DTs
  • Model consistency, management, and evolution of engineering models
  • Uncertainty and fidelity in DTs
  • DT reliability, trust, and security
  • Architectural patterns for DTs
  • Virtual commissioning based on DTs
  • DTs for continual learning and continuous improvement
  • Combining models and data in DTs
  • DTs for dynamic (re)configuration and optimization
  • Evolution and compositionality of DTs
  • Teaching and education of DT skills
  • Case studies, experience reports, comparisons in various application domains

Submission Guidelines

  • Regular papers (max 10+2 pages): Present novel research on the model-based engineering of DTs.
  • Short papers (4–6 pages): Forward-looking papers about ideas that will interest the conference attendees but which are not currently at an advanced level of research. These might outline new research avenues, pose interesting positions, or outline visions on the future of engineering DTs.
  • Tool demonstration papers (2–4 pages): These are papers that focus on the tooling aspects of engineering DTs. A good tool paper focuses on practical insights that are likely to be useful to other implementers or users of DTs in the future. Any of the aforementioned topics of interest are appropriate areas for tool demonstrations. We strongly recommend that these papers come with an appendix with a demo outline / screenshots and/or a short video/screencast illustrating the tool, as well as possibly providing links to online material.
  • Exemplar papers (4–6 pages): Implementations or detailed specifications of DTs in different application domains. We strongly recommend that these papers come with an appendix with screenshots and/or a short video/screencast illustrating the DT, as well as possibly providing links to online material or further information about the DT.

As part of a “Digital Twin Roadshow”, accepted tool demos and exemplar submissions will also be invited to have a poster/demo/video booth during the Tuesday, September 24th breaks, with the MODELS Industry Day running in parallel that day.

Formatting instructions are available at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template for both LaTeX and Word users. LaTeX users must use the provided acmart.cls and ACM-Reference-Format.bst without modification, enable the conference format in the preamble of the document (i.e., \documentclass[sigconf,review]{acmart}), and use the ACM reference format for the bibliography (i.e., \bibliographystyle{ACM-Reference-Format}). The review option adds line numbers, thereby allowing referees to refer to specific lines in their comments. Manuscripts must be submitted via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=edtconf24). By submitting to EDTconf 2024, authors acknowledge that they are aware of and agree to be bound by the ACM Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism. In particular, papers submitted to EDTconf 2024 must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere while under consideration for EDTconf 2024. Submissions that do not adhere to the page limits or that violate the formatting guidelines will be desk-rejected without review.

Paper Publication with Journal Option

Accepted regular papers, short papers, tool demonstration papers, and exemplar papers will be published in the companion proceedings of MODELS. Selected regular papers from the conference will be invited to revise and submit an extended version of the papers for publication in a dedicated special section in the Journal on Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM). Selected papers will be expected to comply with the standard guidelines of SoSyM when publishing an extended version of a paper, including the addition of at least 30% new material.
