CPS Week 2015

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are complex engineering systems that rely on the integration of physical, computation, and communication processes to function. Theories, algorithms, systems and methodologies developed for CPS are the foundations for applications like Internet of Things, industrial internet and automation, smart transportations, smart grids, smart cities, buildings and homes, data centers, health care, wellbeing and so on. Such systems must be operated safely, dependably, securely, efficiently and in real-time. Advances in this field will have great technical, economic and societal impacts in the near future. Since 2008, CPS Week is the premier forum for academic, industry, and governmental researchers to present latest research results and exchange ideas on all aspects of CPS.

CPS Week 2015 will be held in the beautiful city of Seattle, Washington, USA.

The event features four major collocated conferences:

HSCC: The 18th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Hybrid Systems: Computation and Control

ICCPS: The 6th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems

IPSN: The 14th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks

RTAS: The 21st IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium

In additional to major conferences, CPS Week 2015 will host workshops, tutorials, poster and demo sessions, competition, and PhD forums.

Important Dates:
Abstract Registration: October 13th, 2014
Submission Deadline:   October 20th, 2014
Notification Dates: vary by individual conferences
Workshop Date: April 13th, 2015
Main Conference: April 14th – April 16th, 2015

ADHOC-NOW is an international conference dedicated to wireless and mobile computing. This year, it comes to Germany for the first time and will take place on July 18-20, in the beautiful city Paderborn. The conference addresses both experimental and theoretical research in the areas of ad hoc networks, sensor networks, mesh networks and vehicular networks. It focuses on all issues from link layer up to the application layer.

The ADHOC-NOW 2011 proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Select papers will be invited for submission to a special issue of Ad Hoc & Sensor Wireless Networks

Second International Workshop on the Web of Things (WoT 2011)

CALL FOR PAPERS – Second International Workshop on the Web of Things (WoT 2011) in conjunction with Pervasive 2011, San Francisco, June 12-15 2011.

The world of embedded devices has experienced radical changes; real-world objects such as home appliances, industrial machines and wireless sensor and actuator networks embed powerful computers which often can connect to the Internet. Likewise, more and more common objects are being tagged with RFID tags or barcodes. Considering the recent progress in mobile communications (increased bandwidth for cell phone networks, as well as urban wireless broadband networks), Internet access will very likely become a commodity accessible from most real-world devices. This convergence of physical computing devices (wireless sensor networks, mobile phones, embedded computers, etc.) and the Internet provides new design opportunities and challenges, as digital communication networks will increasingly not only serve virtual data (images, text, etc.), but also serve access to real objects. While the “Internet of Things” has become a well-known brand for a set of research issues in the pervasive and ubiquitous computing communities, the main focus of this research theme has been on establishing connectivity in a variety of challenging and constrained networking environments. Our hypothesis is that the “Web of Things” is the next logical step in the ongoing evolution, enabling new applications and providing new opportunities. The Web of Things takes the next step from establishing connectivity and thus the ability to communicate with Things, to a vision where Things become seamlessly integrated into the Web, not just through Web-based user interfaces of specific applications, but by simply blending into the information and interaction space created by the Web and its architectural principles. The “Web of Things” workshop solicits contributions in the areas of architectures for a Web of things, decentralization, real-time interactions with things, services for the physical world, Web-scale applications, as well as questions of user interface and interaction design, where a Web of Things requires application designers to think beyond standard Web browsers and embrace alternative clients such as mobile devices or even more constrained environments.



The 8th IEEE Sensor Conference will be held in Christchurch, New Zealand, 25-28 October 2009.

Among the keynote presentations:

Smart Configurable Wireless Sensors and Actuators for Industrial Monitoring and Control by Dr. Asad M. Madni (USA)  Executive Managing Director & CTO of Crocker Capital and Former President & Chief Operating Office of BEI Technologies

Dead Reckoning for Fun

As is becoming a tradition, there will be an Extreme Sensing Competition at the IPSN ’09 Conference on April 13, in San Francisco, CA, USA.

In this opportunity the goal is to dead reckon on persons in a 10m x 10m arena, by using up to 7 sensors (5 of which can be body sensors and 2 ground fixed). The competition will be structured in two phases. Phase 1 is meant for guessing about other team deployment strategies while each system is reckoning on attendees. Phase 2 is for exploiting the opponent team system flaws — that could be guessed from Phase 1 — while system is now reckoning on contenders. Thus preventing the other teams from scoring more points.

Deadline to participate is March 25, 2009. Rules of play, Scoring and more info here
