CPSNA 2014 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 2014 will serve as a forum to discuss new ideas for such core challenges of cyber-physical systems. 


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, aerospace, etc., all of which will be essential pieces of our social infrastructure. The vision of CPS however faces some core challenges of multidisciplinary research, as their relevant technologies appear in diverse areas of science and engineering. The objective of CPSNA is to bring together researchers from different backgrounds, and explore innovative, exciting, and fresh ideas for the design and development of future CPS. The scope of CPSNA 2014 will give due consideration in all areas of research that facilitate collaborations in existing and new technologies related to CPS. Topics of special interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Real-time systems for time-critical functions in CPS
  • Sensor networks for large-scale sensing and actuation
  • Networked control systems for complexity management in CPS
  • Dependable computing and verification methods to support safety-critical functions
  • Ubiquitous and pervasive computing for enhanced user interactions with CPS
  • Cloud and distributed computing to support scalability and manage complexity
  • Data-intensive computing and data mining to support big data in CPS
  • Multicore and GPU programming for high-performance CPS
  • Architecture, compiler, OS, and middleware platforms for CPS
  • Experimental prototypes of CPS
  • Emerging applications in CPS
