London CPS Workshop
Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems
Workshop Scope and Purpose
Recent technological developments in sensing, communications, control and computation have created an emerging class of complex systems, called Cyber-Physical Systems. Cyber-Physical Systems are characterized by large numbers of tightly integrated heterogeneous components in a network, which may expand and contract dynamically. Cyber-Physical Systems are very common and are becoming increasingly ubiquitous. The control of such systems presents huge challenges and requires designs drawn from approaches such as those in traditional control, hybrid control systems, discrete event systems, and networked control. In addition, robustness, reliability and security issues for reconfiguring dynamical systems must also be addressed. This integration of different technologies and scientific domains presents new and challenging fundamental problems underlying the theoretical foundations for this class of systems.
