As an emerging cross-disciplinary research area, the Cyber-Physical System (CPS) is attracting attention worldwide.
CPS features a combination of computational and physical elements, all of which are capable of interacting, reflecting 
and influencing each other. Another emerging cross-disciplinary research area, the Cyber-Social System (CSS) is 
rapidly evolving 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 attributes.


The 2019 IEEE International Conference on Cyber Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom-2019) will cover both 
CPS and CSS as well as their further integration, namely CPSS, the Cyber-Physical-Social System. It will provide 
a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art advances 
and innovations, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future. We seek submissions of papers 
which invent new techniques, introduce innovative methodologies, and propose new research directions in 
advanced CPS, CSS and CPSS.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Track 1: System & Design

²  Efficient architectures for CPSS

²  Low power and energy harvesting

²  Real-time systems
