4th International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems (IWCPS’17)

Prague, Czech Republic, September 3 - 6, 2017

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 surroundings. 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 and 2013, 2015, 2016 IWCPSs. The objective of the workshop is to serve the community with main interest in CPS.
