Call for Perspective Papers

IEEE Embedded Systems Letters (ESL) is inviting perspective papers in the broad domain of embedded systems and software, cyber-physical systems, and Internet of Things. A perspective paper could present a grand challenge problem in the field that needs to be addressed, charter a new direction of research, express a contradictory viewpoint, or promote an interdisciplinary research area. The journal hopes that the perspective papers will be of lasting value to the community, and of the highest quality.

The perspective papers will go through the same rigorous peer-review process as the regular papers. However, the prospective authors may choose to first submit (at most) one-page title and abstract to the ESL Deputy Editor-in- Chief Tulika Mitra at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Given a positive assessment, the author may then proceed to expound upon the topic and submit the full perspective paper to 

Note that the first step is not mandatory and is only meant to guide the authors. A positive assessment of the abstract does not imply acceptance of the paper. The full perspective paper will be evaluated by an Associate Editor of the journal and selected peer reviewers just like regular papers.

There is no specific deadline for the submission of perspective papers. Each paper will be evaluated as and when it is submitted.
