Eighth International Workshop on
Information Integration on the Web (IIWeb2011)
in conjunction with WWW 2011

*** Submission deadline: Feb 6, 2011 ***
Submission Site Open: https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/IIWeb2011/
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. The internet transformed how humans interact and communicate with one another,
revolutionized how and where information is accessed, and even changed how people buy and sell
products. Similarly, CPS will transform how humans interact with and control the physical world
around us. Examples of CPS include medical devices and systems, aerospace systems, transportation
vehicles and intelligent highways, defense systems, robotic systems, process control, factory automation,
building and environmental control and smart spaces. CPS interact with the physical world, and
must operate dependably, safely, securely, and efficiently and in real-time.
This workshop, eighth in the IIWeb series, is focused on making the research in information integration
on the web more relevant to the challenges in cyber physical systems that will be built to solve the
critical problems that arise when we want to build a sustainable ecosystem for life on our planet.
Topics of interest, include, but are not restricted to:
? Knowledge representation in cyber physical systems
? Challenges in efficiently managing sensor data
? Challenges with managing and integrating real-time and historical data
? Novel data acquisition mechanisms such as crowd sourcing
? Mining spatio-temporal patterns and prediction of future trends
? Issues in scaling out integration solutions
? Case Studies, successes, lessons learnt
? Sharing of data ? policy needs, security concerns, incentives
