For registration, hotel and venue information, please see CPS Week 2010. Please choose ICCPS as the conference you are attending.

Student Grants Available.

A limited number of NSF-sponsored student travel grants is available to support student participants from US universities. Each award will be limited to between $800 and $1000. Applications are asked to submit a letter from the graduate advisor or chair verifying the current student status. Funds will be provided upon submission of the receipts and require that a US air carrier be used for travel (if reimbursement is sought for air travel). Students from minorities and under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply. Request for travel grants with letter from the advisor or department chair must be e-mailed to:

Welcome to the home page of the ACM/IEEE First International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems, co-sponsored by ACM SIGBED (Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems) and IEEE TCRTS (Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems).

This First International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS) will be held as part of CPS Week 2010 to be held in Stockholm, Sweden on April 13 and 14, 2010.

Cyber-Physical Systems

As computers become ever-faster and communication bandwidth ever-cheaper, computing and communication capabilities will be embedded in all types of objects and structures in the physical environment. Applications with enormous societal impact and economic benefit will be created by harnessing these capabilities in time and across space. Such systems that bridge the cyber-world of computing and communications with the physical world are called cyber-physical systems.

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems whose operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled and integrated by a computing and communication core. This intimate coupling between the cyber and physical will be manifested from the nano-world to large-scale wide-area systems of systems. And at multiple time-scales.

Cyber-physical systems will transform how we interact with the physical world just like the Internet transformed how we interact with one another.
