NIST Cyber-Physical Systems Public Working Group

What are Cyber-Physical Systems or CPS?

  • Is a CPS any engineered system with a microprocessor?
  • Do all CPS need to be connected to the internet?
  • Are there a set of basic functions and architectural elements common to all CPS?

You are invited to join us in answering these questions and charting the path to the future.

39th International Conference on Computer Safety, Reliability and Security

Since it was established in 1979 by the European Workshop on Industrial Computer Systems, Technical Committee 7 on Reliability, Safety and Security (EWICS TC7), SafeComp has contributed to the progress of the state-of-the-art in dependable application of computers in safety-related and safety-critical systems.

SafeComp is an annual event covering the state-of-the-art, experience and new trends in the areas of safety, security and reliability of critical computer applications.


Visible to the public  Resilience Week 2020
Oct 19, 2020 7:00 am - Oct 22, 2020 6:00 pm CDT

Large disasters may ripple across cities, regions or even nationally through interconnected critical infrastructure systems.

Right now, many of those connections are invisible, making it very difficult to put effective mitigation strategies in place. Critical links are often uncovered too late, causing greater impacts to infrastructure and challenging recovery efforts on the ground.

Join us for the Resilience Week 2020 Symposium to discuss how private and public partners can work together to ensure a secure and reliable flow of energy across the nation.
