This invitation-only workshop took place over February 18-19, 2014. Invitations were issued to researchers with interests and potential impact in Cyber-Physical Systems, with an emphasis on early career researchers. The goal of the workshop was to help aspiring PIs understand what NSF (and importantly, the panels convened by NSF) are expecting to see in a successful CPS proposal.
