Workshop motivation and topics

The recent technological advances in wireless communications and the 
increasing availability of sensors, actuators, and mobile devices have 
created an exciting new ubiquitous computing environment that 
facilitates computing and communication services all the time and 
everywhere. This lays the foundation for so-called cyber-physical 
systems (CPS). These are integrations of computational, network, and 
physical systems, whose operations are monitored, coordinated, 
controlled and integrated by a computing and communication core. 
Relevant application areas are the areas of transportation, health-care, 
manufacturing, agriculture, energy, defense, aerospace, robotic and 
buildings. Cyber-physical systems have the potential to transform how we 
interact with the physical world around us. The design, implementation, 
verification and management of cyber-physical systems pose a multitude 
of technical challenges that need to be addressed by researchers from a 
multitude of different disciplines. Additionally, in any case, a paper 
to be acceptable needs to be related to agent-technology.

Examples of areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the 

. Architecture of CPS

. Engineering design techniques and tools for CPS

. Systems Software and Network Supports

. Verification, Validation, and Certification of CPS:

. Robustness and Safety of CPS

. Real-time System Abstractions

. Agents and Cyber-Physical Systems

. CPS and QoS Composition Challenges

. Real-Time Embedded Systems Abstractions

. Interactions between engineering structures, information processing, 
humans and the physical world

. Sensor and Mobile Networks

. Education and Training

. Computational Abstractions for CPS

. SOAs and middleware for CPS

. Security, privacy and trust in Cyber-Physical Systems

. Applications of CPS in the areas of transportation, health-care, 
manufacturing, agriculture, energy, defense, aerospace, robotic and 

*Structure of CyPhySyA*

CyPhySyA will be a full-day workshop and will include several 
presentation sessions for the accepted paper as well as invited papers 
on topics of overall interest in order to kick off intense and lively 
discussions. It is intended to end the workshop with a panel/discussion 
round in which the relevant results of the workshop will be discussed.



*Review Process*

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 Program Committee 
members. Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, 
impact, originality, technical soundness, quality of presentation, 
practical applicability. Some preference may also be given to papers 
which address emergent trends or important common themes. In general, 
papers to be acceptable, must be of substantial relevance for the 
multi-agent systems research community.



*Journal publication of excellent papers*

It is intended to invite authors of excellent papers to submit an 
extended version of their paper to the IOS Multiagent and Grid Systems 
journal (MAGS). This journal has a high reputation and is often 
classified as a B-class journal. If enough high quality papers will be 
submitted it is planned to publish them as a special issue, otherwise as 
regular papers.
