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

International Workshop on Robotic Sensor Networks

Recent developments in sensing and actuation technology, along with the miniaturization of computing and communication, have led to the development of commodity robot technology such as hobby drones and robot toolkits. These platforms are bringing sensing and actuation at places where traditional technology does not reach; for example, for aerial pollution monitoring or for disaster management in remote areas.

This novel class of cyber-physical systems (CPS) take many of the design, implementation, and validation issues of traditional CPSs to an extreme. Control, sensing, estimation, and algorithms for localization, mapping, navigation, and exploration of individual robots are needed to govern their movements. The timing aspects of vehicle operation are key to provide run-time guarantees about performance. The software design and implementation must lead to provably correct execution. Noisy or inaccurate information sensed by the robots must be properly handled to ensure an accurate understanding of the environment.

Research efforts to address the issues above, while related, have previously progressed independently with little cross-fertilization across diverse disciplines such as robotics, real-time systems, signal processing, and software development. The goal of this workshop is to create a platform where researchers from different communities can get together to better understand the latest developments in these related fields as well as to establish connections for future interdisciplinary work. The workshop intends to provide a platform to enable such cross-fertilization, to ultimately speed up the development of the field and to foster rich interdisciplinary work in the future. Particularly, co-location with the Cyber-Physical Systems week will be an asset in this regard. CPSWEEK is the premiere CPS event that brings together five top conferences from complementary areas such as Embedded Systems, Real-time Systems, Sensor Networks, Hybrid Systems, and Networked Systems.

To build the needed interdisciplinary work ultimately necessary to the development of the field, the workshop seeks technical contributions describing original, previously unpublished results in all topics related to the design of robotic sensor networks, including works across two or more of the following topic areas:

  • Programming of robot swarms
  • Low-power communication in robot networks
  • Sensing coverage using robotic swarms
  • Task allocation
  • Distributed sensing
  • Coordination in robotic swarms
  • Verification and validation
  • Distributed planning and navigation
  • Novel applications
  • Experience reports

Deadlines
Submission deadline: Feb 14, 2014.
Notifications : Mar 5, 2014.
Camera ready : TBD.
Workshop : Apr 13, 2014, at 2pm.

CONET 2012

The Third International Workshop on Networks of Cooperating Objects (CONET 2012) April 16th, 2012 – Beijing, China, will be co-located with the CPS Week 2012

During the last decade, the continuous improvement and miniaturization of integrated circuits has led to new types of computing systems. An emerging trend is the collaboration of miniature devices to achieve a common goal. Representative examples include wireless sensor networks, pervasive computing and embedded systems. Along with this trend, the notion of Cooperating Objects (COs) collectively refers to embedded computing devices equipped with communication as well as sensing or actuation capabilities, able to cooperate and organize themselves autonomously into networks to achieve a common task. As such, COs envision a single, coherent system formed by a wide range of devices. The complexity germane to the interaction inside and across networks of COs presents a rich set of research questions, and entails a wide range of scientific disciplines, such as networking, software engineering, and control theory.

CONET 2012 will provide a discussion forum for researchers, aimed at fostering synergy and convergence of complementary areas towards the vision of networks of COs. Work-in-progress systems, provocative ideas, and position papers paving the road towards such synergy and convergence are particularly welcome.

CPS Week Workshops & Tutorials

The CPS Week 2012 (Cyber-Physical Systems Week) in Beijing will include a workshop and tutorial day on April 16, 2012. Each workshop will provide an arena for presentations and discussions about a special topic of relevance to CPS Week. Each tutorial will present in-depth content in a mini-course format aimed primarily at students, researchers, or attendees from industry.

Proposals: If you are interested in organising a workshop or a tutorial at CPS Week 2012, please send a proposal (maximum 2-page PDF file) containing information about the following:

* Workshop or tutorial title,
* Abstract (maximum 200 words),
* The topic of the workshop/tutorial and how it relates to CPS Week,
* The organisers behind the workshop/tutorial including contact information, and short bio and affiliation,
* Proposed Program Committee,
* Planned review procedures,
* In the case of a workshop what the intended format will be (invited presentations, submitted presentations, panels, etc),
* Expected sponsorships (if any),
* Profile of a typical attendee (academic researcher, student or industry participant),
* A rough estimate of the number of participants,
