Medical Cyber-Physical Systems (MCPS) encompass a new generation of smart medical systems that integrate human, cyber, and physical elements in closed-loop control. They aim to improve patient care by enabling the delivery of advanced therapies and complex surgeries. An example is the artificial pancreas that allows people with diabetes to better manage their condition. Another example is medical robotic systems, which allow doctors to perform minimally-invasive surgeries that were not possible before. Such systems may be integrated into the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) which consist of connected infrastructures of medical devices, mobile and web applications, and other health services. Designing safe and effective MCPS and IoMT involves the work of a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, medical domain experts, and human factors specialists. This work needs to be supported by rigorous development processes and tools, as substantial evidence needs to be documented and integrated to justify design choices and ease the review process mandated by regulation. The proposed workshop aims to bring together different stakeholders involved in the design, development, acquisition, and regulation of MCPS/IoMT, and provide them with a stage that facilitates discussion of ideas, cross-pollination, and collaboration.
The MCPS/IoMT workshop will be an one-day event co-located with CPS-IoT Week 2023 in San Antonio, TX, USA. The objectives of the MCPS and IoMT workshop 2023 are to provide opportunities for researchers, industrial practitioners, caregivers, and government agencies to demonstrate innovative development methods and tools, present experience reports, discuss open challenges, and explore ideas for future development of MCPS and the IoMT. Contributions are welcome on all aspects of system development, including specification, design, analysis, implementation, documentation, and certification of MCPS. Demonstrations of existing tools for design and analysis of MCPS are also encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Call for papers [pdf]
Authors are invited to submit the following types of papers:
Submit your papers and abstracts via EasyChair - https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mcpsiomt2023
Authors should prepare their papers using LaTeX and the ACM style file (SIGCONF). Paper submissions must be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this workshop. Abstract submissions (250 words max) can be on previously published work or be under consideration while being evaluated for this workshop. The purpose of Abstract submissions is to encourage community participation by allowing attendees to present and discuss previously published material in the workshop format. Consequently, ABSTRACTS WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS. All papers, demos/posters, and abstracts will require an author attendance at the MCPS-IoMT workshop to present the work orally. Reviews will be single blind.
Accepted regular and poster/demo papers (but not abstracts) will be included in the CPS-IoT week proceedings. Abstracts will be made available on the workshop website.
By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM's new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy. https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/research-involving-human-participants-and-subjects
Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.
