----------------------------------------------------------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS - CPSNA'11 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

The 1st International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems, Networks, and Applications (CPSNA'11)

in conjunction with the 17th IEEE International Conference on Embedded and Real-Time Computing Systems and Applications (RTCSA'11)

August 28th, 2011, Toyama, JAPAN

----------------------------------------------------------------------- Workshop website: -----------------------------------------------------------------------

Cyber-physical systems represent a next generation of embedded systems featuring a tight integration of computational and physical elements. Emerging applications of cyber-physical systems include transportation, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, entertainment, consumer electronics, environmental monitoring, and aerospace, all of which will be essential pieces of our social infrastructure. A grander vision of cyber-physical systems, however, faces a core challenge of multidisciplinary research collaborations, as their relevant technologies appear in diverse areas of science and engineering.

The objective of this workshop is to explore innovative, exciting, and fresh ideas for cyber-physical systems. Contributions should emphasize on the design, implementation, and evaluation of systems, networks, and applications. The scope of CPSNA'11 will give due consideration in all areas of research that facilitate collaborations between cyber-physical systems and existing technologies. Topics of special interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Embedded and real-time systems * Sensor networks * Verification methods and tools * Dependable computing * Ubiquitous and pervasive computing * Cloud and distributed computing * Data-intensive computing * Multicore and GPU programming * Architecture, compiler, and OS support * Experimental prototype systems * Project report on multidisciplinary research collaborations * Emerging applications of cyber-physical systems (autonomous vehicles, healthcare robots, smart buildings, smart grids, medical devices, virtual reality interfaces, infrastructure monitoring systems, etc.)

CPSNA'11 especially seeks papers from, but not limited to, students and young researchers. Case studies and evaluation of existing technologies are also welcome.

----------------------------------------------------------------------- PAPER SUBMISSIONS

CPSNA'11 invites submissions of full and short papers. Full papers must present complete work, while short papers may include work in progress. Submitted papers must adhere to page limits of 6 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers. The paper formats must follow 8.5-inch by 11-inch with two columns using a font size of 10 pt. In order to avoid violation of these instructions, authors are encouraged to use the IEEE proceedings template available on the following website:

Papers must be submited electronically through the workshop website:

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the workshop. Full papers must provide 30-minute presentation. Short papers must present their work in the poster/demo session instead of 30-minute presentation (authors can choose posers or demos).
