The 5th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems.
Call for Papers
April 15-17, 2014, Berlin, Germany
URL: http://iccps.acm.org/2014/

This 5th International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS) will be held as part of CPS Week 2014 to be held in Berlin, Germany on April 14-17, 2014.

As computers become ever-faster and communication bandwidth ever-cheaper, computing and communication capabilities will be embedded in all types of objects and structures in the physical environment. Applications with enormous societal impact and economic benefit will be created by harnessing these capabilities in time and across space. Such systems that bridge the cyber-world of computing and communications with the physical world are called cyber-physical systems.

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by a computing and communication core. This intimate coupling between the cyber and physical will be manifested from the nano-world to large-scale, wide-area systems of systems. And at multiple time-scales. Cyber-physical systems will transform how we interact with the physical world just like the Internet transformed how we interact with one another.


The ICCPS 2014 conference will put specific emphasis on (but not limited to) the following overarching themes
       • Transportation
       • Robotics
       • Energy
Work focused on theory, algorithms, implementation and field deployments will be of great interest to the conference. Areas of interest to support these applications include (but not limited to): control, optimization, machine learning, verification, data mining, signal processing, information theory. Tools and technologies of interest include (but not limited to): sensor networks, embedded systems, human in the loop systems, social networks, mobile computing, participatory sensing, crowd-sourcing, cloud computing.


Submissions must be full papers. Regular submissions are at most 12 pages, including figures, tables, and references. Notice that page limits are the MAXIMUM lengths. Paper qualities are not judged by length. Submissions must be in PDF format, on single-spaced 8.5" x 11" (letter) pages of two-column format, using 10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced) leading, with a maximum text block of 7" wide x 9" deep. Left and right margins must be >= 0.75". Top and bottom margins must be >= 1". Each column should be 3.33" with a 0.33" gutter. Each column must contain no more than 55 lines of text.
