CPS 20 years from now - vision and challenges
a workshop of the CPS week in Berlin, Germany
14 April 2014

***** Submission Deadline : January 31st, 2014 *****

Web site:

The CyPhERS project ("Cyber-Physical European Roadmap and Strategy") aims at a
strategic research and innovation agenda for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) as
well as recommendations for action for the European Commission. CyPhERS
surveys, analyses, and evaluates the economic, technical, scientific, and
societal impact of CPS; see for further details. CyPhERS
organizes the CPS20 workshop in order to, on the one hand, validate reached
results and conclusions and, on the other, elicit further and deeper

The CPS20 workshop provides multiple scientific and industrial communities with
a forum for

(a) the exchange of CPS visions and challenges, as well as
(b) the elaboration of strategies to those ends.

In particular, the goal of the workshop is to gather insights regarding
foundations, technology and methodologies for the design and production of large
scale CPS that enable the realization of smart cities and even of the smart
Earth. The outcome will thus help towards the clarification of the various
interpretations, commonalities, and differences, thereby paving the way for a
more structured and well-founded approach to future CPS roadmaps and
initiatives, including research and technology, education and training,
ecosystems and standards.

Besides invited talks and position papers, CPS20 will include an interactive
panel for discussions. Contributions are solicited addressing one or more of
the following topics:

* Visions and challenges of combined nature, e.g., technological,
organizational, business and societal (at least two)

* Roadmaps for CPS - suggested course of action that meet defined visions
and challenges

* Experiences from regional and international efforts already undertaken or
under way


Representatives from academia, industry and policy making are explicitly invited
to submit enlightening position papers of 4-8 pages length in IEEE two-column
format using EasyChair ( See
the conference website ( for further details.
