*21st International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and
Infrastructures (WETICE-2012) (*http://wetice.tuniview.com/*)*

*Toulouse, France   June 25-27, 2012*

*Track on Cyber Physical Society with SOA, BPM and Sensor Networks*

*Call for Papers*

Along with the stronger capability of computing devices and the cheaper and
faster communication networks, computing will be embedded in all types of
physical resources, and applications with big societal impact and economic
benefit will be created in time and across space. The tight conjoining of,
and coordination between, computational (or cyber) and physical resources
for achieving this kind of applications are the objectives of cyber
physical systems. Generally, cyber physical systems feature a tight
integration between computation, communication, and control in their
operation and interactions with the task environment in which they are
deployed. Beyond the cyber physical systems, the cyber physical society
concerns not only the cyber space and the physical space but also humans,
knowledge, society and culture. It is a future coordination and
collaboration environment that connects nature, cyber space and society
under certain rules. Research on cyber physical society will lead to the
extension of information science and technology.

While the cyber physical society describes the future environment of
collaboration, nowadays, service oriented architecture (SOA) and business
process management (BPM) are coined to specify how the computational
resources can coordinate and collaborate, and (wireless) sensor networks
(SNs) provide means to sensing the physical resources and interconnecting
physical and cyber resources. Leveraging existing techniques (SOA, BPM, and
SNs etc) for achieving the vision of cyber physical society is promising.
The core scientific problems include the scalability, heterogeneity,
integration, security, and the dynamics of the underlying infrastructures.
The data management, as well as the semantic interoperability, in the cyber
physical society is also posing a great challenge. This track aims to
provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing research,
development, and deployment efforts in achieving the vision of cyber
physical society by means of current techniques.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scopes:

·         Cyber physical systems

·         Interactive computing in cyber physical society

·         Architectures and principles of cyber physical society

·         Security issues of cyber physical society

·         Heterogeneous resources integration for SOA/BPM/SNs in cyber
physical society

·         Semantic interoperability for SOA/BPM/SNs in cyber physical

·         Semantic web for the Collaboration in cyber physical society

·         Semantic data management in the sensor networks/cyber physical

·         Service oriented computing in cyber physical society

·         Business process management in cyber physical society

·         Sensor networks in cyber physical society

·         Applications of cyber physical systems and cyber physical society

·         SOA, BPM and SNs for pervasive systems
