CPS&IoT 2020 : 8th Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet-of-Things
Call For Papers
Contemporary Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are smart compound systems engineered through seamless integration of embedded information processing sub-systems and physical sub-systems. The modern smart collaborating CPS, that started to form the Cyber-Physical Systems of Systems (CPSoS) and Internet of Things (IoT), have important applications in virtually all economic and social segments, and their huge economic and societal impact rapidly increases. The CPS and IoT area undergoes a revolutionary development.
CPS&IoT’2020 Conference addresses all aspects of CPS and IoT, as well as related applications, specification, analysis, validation, architectures, technology, hardware, software, design and development methodology, and design automation tools. It includes a strong keynote programme by outstanding professionals from industry and academia. It gives an excellent opportunity to disseminate, publish and discuss fresh research results from international, European, and other R&D projects. It is indexed in all the main Databases or Digital Libraries as IEEE xPlore, SCOPUS, WoS, etc. Selected conference papers will be invited for publication as extended journal papers in the journal Microprocessors and Microsystems, operated by our strategic partners EUROMICRO and Elsevier. CPS&IoT’2020 Conference together with CPS&IoT’2020 Summer School constitute a premier Europe based conference event in CPS and IoT.
Its target participants are industrial and academic researchers, developers, engineers and decision-makers; academic teachers, Ph.D. and M.Sc. students; entrepreneurs, investors, research funding agents, and policy makers; and other participants who want to discuss or learn the CPS and IoT engineering.
CPS&IoT’2020 Conference builds on the success the series of seven EUROMICRO/IEEE Workshops on Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems (ECYPS) and eight Mediterranean Conferences on Embedded Computing (MECO), as well as, of the very successful CPS&IoT’2019 Summer School. It will be collocated with CPS&IoT’2020 Summer School and MECO’2020 Conference.
