Dependable Cyber Physical Systems and Applications

Dependable Cyber Physical Systems and Applications

Featuring the systematic combination of computation, communication, and physical processes, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is posing an increasing impact on our society. Typical applications of CPS include civil infrastructure monitoring, automotive and transportation systems, smart buildings, intelligent energy systems, cyber-physical biochip, and wearable devices.


CPS is an interdisplinary field that requires perspectives from different levels of abstraction: from high level specification models, implemented by software code and protocols, running on hardware platforms. Due to the deeply complex intertwining among different components, CPS design and management pose fundamental challenges in multiple aspects of system dependability including real-time responsiveness, fault tolerance, privacy and security, sustainability, scalability, and flexibility. Tackling these challenges necessitates innovative interdisplinary efforts for designing and implementing CPS. The aim of this special section is to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners from academia, government and industry to present their state-of-the-art research results in the area of designing and implementing dependable CPS.

This is a special session of the 12th IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing ( Please submit your paper via the submission site ( and select the special session of “Dependable Cyber Physical Systems and Applications” marked with “CPSComDCPS”.
