The First International Workshop on Communication, Computing, and Networking in
Cyber Physical Systems (CCN-CPS)
in association with
35th IEEE International Performance Computing and Communications Conference
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, December 9-11, 2016
The new paradigms and tremendous advances in computing, communications and
control have provided and supported wide range of applications in all domains
of live, in particular, bridging the physical components and the cyber space
leading to the Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). The notion of CPS is to use recent
computing, communication, and control methods to design and operate intelligent
and autonomous systems that can provide using cutting edge technologies. This
require the use of computing resources for sensing, processing, analysis,
predicting, understanding of data, and then communication resources for
interaction, intervene, and interface management, and finally provide control
for systems so that they can inter-operate, evolve, and run in a stable
evidence-based environment. CPS has extraordinary significance for the future
of several industrial domains and hence, it is expected that the complexity in
CPS will continue to increase due to the integration of cyber components with
physical and industrial systems.
This workshop solicits unpublished research work related to the latest
challenges, technologies, solutions, techniques and fundamentals pertaining to
communication, computing, networking, control in CPS.
Topics of the track consist of all aspects related to Communication, Computing,
and Networking in CPS. They include but are not limited to:
· Cyber-physical issues in next-generation communication systems
· Real-time Sensing, Reasoning and Adaptation for Cyber-Physical Systems
· Cloud-integrated Cyber-Physical Systems.
· Evolutionary computing for CPS.
· Design Theory for Cyber-Physical Systems
· Cyber-Physical Systems Security and Privacy
· Computation Models for Cyber-Physical Systems
· Addresses computation issues in CPS
· Verification and Formal Methods for Cyber-Physical Systems
· Mobile Sensors in Cyber-Physical Systems
· Design and Performance Optimization in Cyber-Physical Systems
· Adaptive Control in Cyber-Physical Systems
· Distributed computing for CPS.
· Autonomous systems and UAVs.
· Communication and Networking for Cyber-Physical Systems
· Applications of CPS in eHealth, life sciences, energy, smart cities.
· Optimizing computing and communication resources for CPS
· Safety-critical, dependable, fault-tolerant cyber-physical systems.
· Distributed, highly networked architectures for interconnected CPS
· Communication and Infotainment Systems in CPS such as vehicles
· Networking for intelligent mobility and transport infrastructures
· Sensor networks for cyber-physical systems
· Intelligent and collaborative methods for CPS
· Simulation and visualization of CPS.
· Testing and Validation of CPS.
