Research Scientist Position Available

A research Scientist Position in Cyber-Physical Systems and Wireless Sensor Networks is available at CISTER/ISEP.  The successful candidates are expected to coordinate and primarily execute R&D activities within international projects on cyber-physical systems and wireless sensor networks, in topics such as reliable and real-time communication protocols, scalable data processing and mobility management, engineering WSN/CPS systems such as for structural health monitoring, industrial noise monitoring and energy-efficient data centres/buildings. This position also involves  supervision of graduate students, including doctoral candidates and teaching graduate-level courses. To get further insight on ongoing research activities and projects refer to WSN and CPS pages.

The candidate should have a PhD in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering or related fields, with particular expertise in Cyber-Physical Systems and Wireless Sensor Networks. The candidate should also have a strong international publication record and demonstrated ability to do independent research. This position involves a 3-year contract. Salary will be 2.650,00€ per month (after taxes) paid 12 times per year. Other benefits include private health insurance, social security and 25 days of paid vacation.

RTAS'11 Track on WSN

The IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS) is a highly selective forum for presentation and discussion of original research papers, covering all aspects of real-time and embedded computing theory and practice. RTAS’11, the seventeenth in a series of annual conferences sponsored by IEEE, will be held in Chicago, IL, USA, as part of the Cyber-Physical Systems Week (CPS Week), April 11-14, 2011.

CPS Week 2011 will bring together five leading conferences, namely the International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN’11), the International Conference on Hybrid Systems (HSCC’11), the International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS’11), the Conference on Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems (LCTES’11), and RTAS’11. RTAS 2011 invites papers describing original contributions both to the state of art and the state of practice in the broad field of embedded and open real-time systems and computing.

The scope of RTAS 2011 will consist of the traditional core area of real-time and embedded systems infrastructure and theory, as well as two additional areas of special emphasis (specialized tracks): Hardware/Software Integration and Co-design, Wireless Sensor Networks.


Submission Deadline: October 8, 2010, 23:59 PST
(HARD deadline)

Acceptance Decisions: December 17, 2010
Camera-Ready Paper Due: January 21, 2011

Second International Conference on CPS

The IEEE/ACM Second International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS) will be held in conjunction with CPS Week, on April 11-14, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems (TCRTS) ACM Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems (SIGBED).

Cyber-physical systems are systems with a tight coupling of the cyber aspects of computing and communications with the physical aspects of dynamics and engineering that must abide by the laws of physics.  The objective of this conference is to be a primary forum for reporting state-of-the-art advances and innovations in theoretical principles, tools, applications, systems infrastructure, and testbeds for cyber-physical systems.

Contributions should emphasize the cross-cutting, system-wide themes. Sectors of applicability include, but not be limited to, transportation  (automotive, aerospace, marine, rail), SCADA systems (electricity generation including smart grids and the like, other utilities), smart physical infrastructure (smart bridges, buildings and highways), energy efficiency (energy-aware buildings), environmental monitoring, defense systems, intelligent medical devices, tele-operations and robotics.

Submissions must be a maximum of 10 pages, in 2-column format, and use font sizes of no less than 10 pt.  Instructions for submission can be found at the conference site.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
– Theoretical foundations of CPS
– Modeling, Analysis and Synthesis Techniques
– Architectures for Cyber-Physical Systems
– Building blocks for Cyber-Physical Systems
– Systems Abstractions, Services and OS Support
– Evaluation approaches and metrics
– Novel CPS applications
– Detailed Case Studies

Submission Deadline:        November 7, 2010
Acceptance Decisions:       January 5, 2010
Final Manuscript:           January 28, 2011

CONET 2010

The First International Workshop on Networks of Cooperating Objects will be held on April 12th, 2010 – Stockholm, Sweden, collocated with the CPS Week 2010.

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 this trend, the notion of Cooperating Objects 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, Cooperating Objects envision a single, coherent system formed by a wide range of devices, including those from the areas mentioned above. The complexity germane to the interaction inside and across networks of Cooperating Objects presents a rich set of research questions, and entails a wide range of scientific disciplines, such as networking, software engineering, and control theory.

CONET 2010 will provide a discussion forum for researchers, aimed at fostering synergy and convergence of complementary areas towards the vision of networks of Cooperating Objects. Work-in-progress systems, provocative ideas, and position papers paving the road towards such synergy and convergence are particularly welcome.
