Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs) are integrations of computation, communication, and control processes. Networked computing at multiple scales plays a crucial rule in CPSs as such systems use computation and communication deeply embedded in and interacting with physical processes to drive the cyber-physical coupling. Research advances in cyber-physical networking systems promise to transform our world with networked systems that will far exceed those of today in terms of: effectiveness, adaptability, energy efficiency, precision, reliability, safety, usability, scalability, stability and user-centric applicability.
The Third International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Networking Systems (CPNS 2013) is a forum to bring together people from academia and industry to explore research issues and challenges related to Cyber-Physical Networking Systems (CPNSs) and discuss innovative ideas and promising cutting-edge solutions (methodologies, techniques and approaches) on diverse CPNS-related topics. This forum aims to help researchers from academia and industry understand the broad, novel scope of CPNSs and grasp new thinking, challenges, and approaches underlying the issues, technologies, and solutions exchanged from mutual communities. Specifically, this workshop will address CPNS methodologies, modeling, theory, protocols, systems, architectures, and implementations and emerging CPNS technologies. The presentations will also feature industry representatives from prestigious R&D labs who will provide diverse views to facilitate collaboration between academia and industry.
Topics include, but not limited to:
- Architectural framework for distributed CPNS
- Resource Management in large scale CPNS
- Smart Grid Technologies
- Security, privacy, scalability, and reliability issues
- Design and cross-layer optimizations
- Vehicular CPNS and intelligent transportation systems
- Wireless sensor networking in CPNSs
- Evaluations and filed trials of CPNS and solutions
- Novel monitoring applications with sensors, actuators, smart phones, robots, and other wireless mobile devices
