3rd International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems (IWCPS’16)

Gdansk, Poland, September 11-14, 2016

Call for Papers

Proliferation of computers in everyday life requires cautious investigation of approaches related to the specification, design, implementation, testing, and use of modern computer systems interfacing with real world and controlling their environment. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are physical and engineering systems closely integrated with their typically networked environment. Modern airplanes, automobiles, or medical devices are practically networks of computers. Sensors, robots, and intelligent devices are abundant. Human life depends on them. Cyber-physical systems transform how people interact with the physical world just like the Internet transformed how people interact with one another.

The event is a continuation and extension of 2006-2010 Real-Time Software FedCSIS workshops as well as 2013 and 2015 IWCPS. The objective of the workshop is to assemble and develop a community with main interest in cyber-physical systems.

IWCPS'16 is supported by the COST Action IC1404 – MPM4CPS, and collocated with the activities of the MPM4CPS.


Due to an extensive scope of the topics, the workshop will accept papers in the following areas:

  • Control Systems
    • embedded/networked/intelligent
    • wireless sensing/actuation
    • adaptive/predictive
  • Scalability/Complexity
