Call For Papers

In conjunction with the 42nd Annual IEEE/IFIP Int. Conf. on
Dependable Systems and Networks ( (


Cyber-physical systems are tight integrations of computation,
networking, and physical objects. Advances recently witnessed in
pervasive and ubiquitous information processing, driven by major
breakthroughs in cyber-physical technology are paving the way towards a
more hospitable and sustainable future via a more efficient management
of our environment: homes, work places, open areas, etc. Examples of
relevant scenarios include: robot-assisted communication and cooperation
in search and rescue missions, enhanced and friendly situation awareness
in public urban spaces, assistance or monitoring in everyday life for
elderly or handicapped people, smart resilient and secure heterogeneous
energy grids, future transportation systems featuring intensive sensing
and open data communication devices, etc.

It is envisioned that the requirements of the cyber-physical systems
(CPS) of the future will far exceed those of today systems, in terms of
functionality, usability, adaptability, autonomy, timeliness and
resilience to accidental and malicious threats, as well as to dynamic
changes of user behaviors and of the environment. For this to become a
reality, many advances have still to be made to tackle several
scientific challenges, among which we can list:**

• The need for multidisciplinary approaches integrating technological
concerns including physical system dynamics and ICT aspects (covering
topics such as sensors, communication and networking, optimization,
control and decision making, resilience and quality of service
enforcement and assessment), but also social, legal and user-privacy
aspects related to human-physical system interaction, usability,
responsibility and user and social acceptability.**

•The need for human-aware self-adapting approaches to autonomously, at
least reactively and as much as possible proactively, adapt the provided
behavior to dynamic changes in the system behavior, environment or

•The need for an integration of design & assessment activities to build
the optimal architectures able to provide the best tradeoffs between
functional requirements and non functional requirements (reliability,
availability, security, timeliness, performance, etc.).**

The aim of this workshop is to set up a forum for researchers and
practitioners, to address these challenges and to report on recent
advances related to the dependability and security of human-aware CPS.**
