Technological Innovation for Cyber-Physical Systems

The 7th Advanced Doctoral Conference on Computing, Electrical and Industrial Systems (DoCEIS’16) will reflect on the growing interests in research, development and application of Cyber-Physical Systems. Fast progress on embedded intelligence and interconnection of systems, enabled by advances in pervasive computing, sensing technologies, and computer networks, including developments on Internet of Things and Cloud Computing, lead to new architectural approaches to systems engineering. By exploring the synergies between computational and physical components, these systems leverage the emerging “network effect” and induce new advanced applications.

Potential benefits can be found in all engineering fields and at all levels, e.g. supporting systems-of-systems, facilitating the industrial Internet and sensing enterprise, enabling effective smart energy grids, creating the basis for smart environments, etc. This approach can change the way engineering systems are designed while leading to exciting challenges for researchers and industrial practitioners. Therefore, prospective contributors to DoCEIS’16 are challenged to identify in which ways their research topics can contribute to or benefit from cyber-physical systems.
