      Workshop motivation and topics

      The recent technological advances in wireless communications and the increasing availability of sensors, actuators, and mobile devices have created an exciting new ubiquitous computing environment that facilitates computing and communication services all the time and everywhere. This lays the foundation for so-called cyber-physical systems (CPS). These are integrations of computational, network, and physical systems, whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by a computing and communication core. Relevant application areas are the areas of transportation, health-care, manufacturing, agriculture, energy, defense, aerospace, robotic and buildings. Cyber-physical systems have the potential to transform how we interact with the physical world around us. The design, implementation, verification and management of cyber-physical systems pose a multitude of technical challenges that need to be addressed by researchers from a multitude of different disciplines. Additionally, in any case, a paper to be acceptable needs to be related to agent-technology.

      Examples of areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

      • Architecture of CPS

      • Engineering design techniques and tools for CPS

      • Systems Software and Network Supports

      • Verification, Validation, and Certification of CPS:

      • Robustness and Safety of CPS

      • Real-time System Abstractions

      • Agents and Cyber-Physical Systems

      • CPS and QoS Composition Challenges

      • Real-Time Embedded Systems Abstractions

      • Interactions between engineering structures, information processing, humans and the physical world

      • Sensor and Mobile Networks

      • Education and Training

      • Computational Abstractions for CPS

      • SOAs and middleware for CPS

      • Security, privacy and trust in Cyber-Physical Systems

      • Applications of CPS in the areas of transportation, health-care, manufacturing, agriculture, energy, defense, aerospace, robotic and buildings



      Structure of CyPhySyA

      CyPhySyA will be a full-day workshop and will include several presentation sessions for the accepted paper as well as invited papers on topics of overall interest in order to kick off intense and lively discussions. It is intended to end the workshop with a panel/discussion round in which the relevant results of the workshop will be discussed.



      Review Process

      Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 Program Committee members. Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, quality of presentation, practical applicability. Some preference may also be given to papers which address emergent trends or important common themes. In general, papers to be acceptable, must be of substantial relevance for the multi-agent systems research community.



      Journal publication of excellent papers

      It is intended to invite authors of excellent papers to submit an extended version of their paper to the IOS Multiagent and Grid Systems journal (MAGS). This journal has a high reputation and is often classified as a B-class journal. If enough high quality papers will be submitted it is planned to publish them as a special issue, otherwise as regular papers.
