2023 NSF-MOST Workshop on Cyber Physical Systems & Smart and Connected Communities



In order to promote Taiwan and US bilateral cooperation, a follow up to the "2022 NSF-MOST Workshop on Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) & Smart and Connected Communities (SCC)” virtual meeting has been organized to be held in-person in Taipei, Taiwan!

The meeting will be held from May 18-20th (Thurs-Sat), with two full days on 18-19, and 20 as a day that will include some afternoon opportunities for cultural exchange and other tours as needed, after the workshop concludes. The plan would be to arrive by the 17th, and depart after the 20th. Please mark these dates and the travel dates (remembering we lose the international date line on the way there) in your calendar.

The workshop is held the week before a more high-level leadership workshop  between NSF/MOST on 5/22-5/23. If you have interest in participating in this, let me know and I will see if there is space. That workshop might be more at a high level, but there could be opportunities to understand more of the overall context.

What is CPS: Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computation and physical components. Advances in CPS will enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability that will expand the horizons of these critical systems. CPS technologies are transforming the way people interact with engineered systems, just as the Internet has transformed the way people interact with information. New, smart CPS drive innovation and competition in a range of application domains including agriculture, aeronautics, building design, civil infrastructure, energy, environmental quality, healthcare and personalized medicine, manufacturing, and transportation. CPS are becoming data-rich enabling new and higher degrees of automation and autonomy. Traditional ideas in CPS research are being challenged by new concepts emerging from artificial intelligence and machine learning. The integration of artificial intelligence with CPS especially for real-time operation creates new research opportunities with major societal implications. While tremendous progress has been made in advancing CPS technologies, the demand for innovation across application domains is driving the need to accelerate fundamental research to keep pace. At the same time, the CPS program seeks to open new vistas for the research community to think beyond the usual cyber-physical paradigms and structures and propose creative ideas to address the myriad challenges of today's systems as well as those of the future that have not yet been designed or fielded.

What is S&CC: Communities around the world are entering a new era of transformation in which residents and their surrounding environments are increasingly connected through rapidly-changing intelligent technologies. This transformation offers great promise for improved wellbeing and prosperity but poses significant challenges at the complex intersection of technology and society.
