Workshop on TC-CPS

3rd International Workshop on TC-CPS: Time-Critical Cyber Physical Systems


As digital computing and communication become faster, cheaper and less power consuming, these capabilities are increasingly embedded in many objects and structures in the physical environment. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are co-engineered interacting networks of physical and computational components. These systems will provide the foundation of our critical infrastructure, form the basis of emerging and future smart services, and improve our quality of life in many areas. For instance, a multitude of CPS devices and applications exist in industrial, transportation, medical, home-security, building automation, emergency management, power, and many other systems, which serve critical functions in our lives. However, there are several issues and challenges remain open in this field, such as robust and real-time communication, network heterogeneity, data security and privacy, safety, etc. This Workshop seeks novel submissions describing practical and theoretical solutions to challenges facing CPS and Internet of Things. Submissions may represent any application area for CPS. Work-in-progress submissions are also welcome.
