As an emerging cross-disciplinary research area, the Cyber Physical System
(CPS) is attracting attention worldwide. A Cyber-Physical System is a
system featuring a combination of computational and physical elements, all
of which are capable of interacting, reflecting and influencing each other.
Furthermore, social systems are evolving with cyber systems and physical
systems along with the popularity of online social networking. With the
advent of ubiquitous sensing and networking, future social networks turn
into cyber-physical interactions, which are attached with associated social

The emergence of the cyber-physical-social computing will significantly
change the way we see the world. In the mean time, the convergence of the
physical, cyber, and social spaces will exhibit a variety of complicated
characteristics, which brings more open issues and challenges for research

 *Scope and Topics*

*A. Networks and Networked Systems* where intelligent entities exchange
information to achieve improved overall performance for both cyber and
physical components. Particular areas of interests include:
• sensor, vehicular, robot, camera, aerial and social smartphone networks
• wireless networking technologies and autonomous ad hoc networks
• internet of things and machine-to-machine communications
• networked infrastructure management with applications such as smart power
grids and transportation systems
• network enabled computation, coordination, and actuation
• scalability of complex networks

*B. Modelling and Control* where mathematical and computational methods are
developed and applied to facilitate innovative design, in-depth analysis,
and novel insights of the fundamental principles.
Particular areas of interests include:
• control theory with a clear cyber-physical tone such as networked
control, distributed optimization, and distributed learning
• autonomy with applications in mobile sensor networks, internet connected
cars, etc.
• modelling of tightly integrated physical processes, software, computation
platforms, and networks

*C. Data Management *where novel methods are developed to reliably gather,
store, transfer, and analyse large amount of data and dataflow.
Particular areas of interests include:
• data management and processing (e.g. big data, cloud computing)
• location and tracking based services
• smart cameras and computer vision based context management
• web of things.

*D. Software and Hardware* where novel designs and implementations of
test-beds, platforms, and software will significantly improve the speed,
efficiency, and reliability of next generation CPS. Particular areas of
interests include:
• embedded systems applications (pervasive computing, real-time control
• resource-constrained systems (low power, energizing, device
• standards and middleware.

*E. Other Emerging Areas *where new challenges, new ideas, and new
principles are shaping. For example,
• incentive, security, trust, and privacy issues in CPS
• smart living technologies such as smart city, smart home and office,
wearable devices, learning devices, etc.
• social M2M networks, social impact of CPS, creative aspects.

Submission Guidelines
Submissions must include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the
corresponding author and should not exceed 8 pages for main conference,
including tables and figures in IEEE CS format. The template files for
LATEX or WORD can be downloaded here. All paper submissions must represent
original and unpublished work. Each submission will be peer reviewed by at
least three program committee members. Submission of a paper should be
regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one
of the authors will register for the conference and present the work.
Submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the submission site:


Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference
Proceedings published by IEEE CS Press. Authors of accepted papers, or at
least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the
conference, otherwise their papers may be removed from the digital
libraries of IEEE CS and EI after the conference.

Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision,
will be published in special issues of Concurrency and Computation:
Practice and Experience; Journal of Network and Computer Applications,
Journal of Computer and System Sciences, and IEEE Transactions on Big Data.
