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.

This workshop will bring together researchers in Systems and Control, interested in different aspects of Cyber-Physical Systems, in order to exchange research experiences and to identify the main scientific challenges in this rapidly growing research area. The participation is by invitation.
