Call For Papers


Cyber-physical systems largely associated with the Internet of Things (IoT) connect many facets of our everyday’s life including physical assets around us. IoT activities soar, easily observable by the increase of scientific publications in recent years and by long-term strategy adaptions towards IoT of major IT-industry players. McKinsey projects the IoT market to grow to $11 trillion by 2025.
Security aspects will play a vital role in the success of IoT. Self-driving vehicles that communicate to each other or energy grids that get interactive require high-security measures in order to guarantee data integrity, prevent fraud and maintain safety.
A number of challenges have to be overcome in order to pave the way to make IoT become ubiquitous in today's societies.
This publication will show applications in the context of IoT, arising challenges and how security, safety and mixed criticality solutions can play a major role in overcoming them.

The main objective of this handbook shall be the collection of latest results and insights of state-of-the-art solutions for CPS ubiquity, with a specific focus on the Internet-of-Things. Hence, it shall provide an overview of current developments and future trends in this area. As such it will contain a balanced combination of development reports from an industry perspective and research papers from the academic community. In detail, this publication will help to address major challenges in the context of the Internet-of-things, i.e., security, safety, and mixed-criticality concerns in multi-core environments.

This handbook of research is targeted to be a reference for researchers and professionals working in the domain of cyber-physical systems (CPS). The respective fields are ranging from hardware and software security, safety and dependability, to embedded system research for the Internet-of-Things in general. This includes applications and research in the automotive industry and the field of Industry 4.0.
