Present CFP : 2009

We are currently witnessing the emergence an infrastructure for a
technical, economic and social revolution that is enabled by
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Cyber-physical systems are physical and
engineered systems whose operations are integrated, monitored, and
controlled by a computational core. The integration of computational
and physical processes exhibit complicated behavior that can not be
analyzed by the computational or physical sciences alone. These
systems also transcend traditional computer-controlled systems because
of their scale, dependence on man-machine interaction and their rich
communication infrastructure that is enabled by the Internet.

Some of the most challenging R&D software problems for cyber-physical
systems are those associated with producing distributed, real-time,
and embedded platforms and applications, and where computers control
physical, chemical, or biological processes or devices. Examples of
such systems include airplanes and air traffic control systems,
automobiles, power grids, oil refineries, and patient monitoring
systems. Despite advances in standards-based commercial-off-the-shelf
(COTS) technologies, key challenges must be addressed before COTS
software can be used to build mission-critical distributed real-time
embedded (DRE) systems effectively and productively. Furthermore,
there are existing critical infrastructures that oversee the
operations of everything from nuclear power plants to traffic lights
and yet they may not even be able to accept static upgrades, or
patches, or any dynamic change of behavior, but they will remain with
us for quite some time. Dynamically retrofitting these systems while
maintaining their stability within a cyber environment is a
significant challenge yet to be overcome.

The International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems (WCPS2009) is an
international forum for researchers to exchange information regarding
advancements in the state of the art and practice of CPS, as well as
to identify the emerging research topics and define the future of CPS.
The technical program of WCPS2009 will consist of invited talks, paper
presentations, and panel discussions.

Paper Submission

The workshop solicits original and previously unpublished papers
reporting results from research and/or industrial experience as well
as discussion of grand challenges and requirements. Submit a full
paper of 6 pages (IEEE Computer Society proceedings Manuscripts: two
columns, single-spaced), including figures and references, using 10
font size, and number each page. You can confirm the IEEE Computer
Society proceedings Manuscripts at the following web page.

Contact author must input the following information at the WCPS2009
web site: paper title, authors' names, affiliations, postal address,
phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author, about 150-250 word
abstract, and keywords. Prepare your paper in PDF file (Adobe format),
and send it through the following web site.

The submission web site is:


Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the
workshop. Each accepted paper must have a full registration in order
to include the paper in the conference proceedings. Accepted papers
will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final
manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.
