CPSNA 2013 will focus on core challenges of cyber-physical systems. Given a tight integration of computation and the physical world, cyber-physical systems must compose robust systems, networks, and applications built upon predictable, analyzable, and certifiable models and abstractions. CPSNA 2013 will serve as a forum to discuss new ideas for such core challenges of cyber-physical systems.
CPSNA 2013 is co-located with RTCSA 2013.
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are next-generation embedded systems featuring a tight integration of computational and physical elements. Emerging applications of CPS include transportation, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, entertainment, consumer electronics, environmental monitoring, and aerospace, all of which will be essential pieces of our social infrastructure. A grander vision of CPS faces a core challenge of multidisciplinary research collaborations, as their relevant technologies appear in diverse areas of science and engineering. The objective of CPSNA is to explore innovative, exciting, and fresh ideas for CPS. Contributions should emphasize on the design, implementation, and evaluation of systems, networks, and applications. The scope of CPSNA 2013 will give due consideration in all areas of research that facilitate collaborations between CPS and existing technologies. Topics of special interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
