Theme and Scope

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are integrations of computation, networking, and physical processes. The vision of CPS faces some core challenges of multidisciplinary research, as their relevant technologies appear in diverse areas of science and engineering..

This special issue is intended to cover contributions in both the design and analysis in the field of Cyber Physical Systems. The special issue will additionally select high quality papers from theInternational Conference on Recent Trends in Advance Computing - Cyber Physical Systems (ICRTAC-CPS), to be held in VIT Chennai, India, September 2018.

Authors are solicited to contribute to this Special Issue by submitting articles that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in the following areas, but are not limited to:

  • Design, synthesis and verification of CPS
  • Sustainability and environmental issues in CPS
  • Social CPS computing
  • Industrial CPS and smart manufacturing
  • Applications of CPS in various domains such as smart energy systems, robotics and automation, automotive and transportation systems, smart healthcare, surveillance systems, etc
  • Adaptive attack mitigation for CPS
  • Authentication and access control for CPS
  • Availability, recovery and auditing for CPS
  • Data security and privacy for CPS
