INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON CYBER PHYSICAL SYSTEMS (IWCPS-2014)

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.A cyber-physical system (CPS) is a system of collaborating computational elements monitoring, controlling, coordinating and communicating with physical entities and vice versa. They are next-generation systems featuring a tight integration that bridge the cyber-world of computing and communications with the physical world.International workshop on cyber physical systems (IWCPS-2014) gives an opportunity for researchers worldwide to share and discuss their novel ideas and findingsin cyber physical systems.

International workshop on cyber physical systems (IWCPS-2014) is to be held during 3-5 December 2014 at Kochi. This workshop is co-located and conducted in the same venue as a special event of ICICT 2014.
