  • Man-machine Interface Systems Engineering
  • Safety Driven Systems Engineering

Topics not covered above and emerging new areas will also be welcome. A special session on education will be organized.

September 22 - Deadline for Abstract Submission (Extended)

Submit a one-page abstract using this link: Online Abstract Submission.

You may use any format. Please include all authors. Only PDF files will be accepted.

Immediately after online submission, the contact author will be notified that the abstract has been received successfully and the abstract will be assigned an ID number. The abstract will retain this ID number throughout the submission/acceptance process. It is important to note that ALL emails about a submission will be made to the contact author only. The co-authors will not be notified.

Important Note: PSE 2018 has a policy that each submission must be accompanied by a registration. However, you are allowed to make more than one initial submission with the understanding that if accepted that a co-author must register to make the presentation.

October 9 - Notification and Invitation to Submit a Paper

Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified by October 9 and will be invited to submit a 6 page paper due December 1st. A paper template and guidelines will be provided and MUST be followed. This paper will undergo a full peer review.

December 1 - Deadline for Paper Submission

January 15 - Notification to Contact Author with Reviews

Using the reviews, you must submit a FINAL paper in order to be considered for a presentation. Detailed instructions will be provided in your notification email.

January 27 - Final Paper Deadline

After your final paper has been received along with a copyright transfer form and your conference registration, you will be notified if your presentation was selected for an oral or a poster presentation. We expect this notification to be in mid-February.

Please contact the PSE 2018 Conference Manager, Robin Craven, if you should have any questions or problems with your paper submission.
