Scope and Interests

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 attributes.

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 communities.

The goal of this symposium is to promote community-wide discussion identifying the Computational Intelligence technologies and theories for Cyber, Physical, and Social Computing. We seek submissions of papers which invent new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new research directions and discuss approaches for unsolved issues.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Track 1. 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

Track 2. 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

Track 3.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

Track 4. 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 technologies)
  • resource-constrained systems (low power, energizing, device miniaturization)
  • standards and middleware

Track 5.  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
