The 3rd IEEE/ACM International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom2010)
Sponsored by IEEE, IEEE CS, IEEE TCSC and ACM
Hangzhou, China, October 31–November 2, 2010
The physical things and the human society have formed into the world we live in, however the emergence of the information technologies that enable the new infrastructure for a technical, economic and social revolution have changed the world we are used to. Cyber-Physical Systems are integrations of computation with physical processes. Embedded computers and networks monitor and control physical processes in feedback loops where physical processes affect computations and vice versa.
Social computing has become more widely known because of the proliferation of online social networking in recent years. With the advent of ubiquitous sensing, future social networks will be cyber-physical, combining measured elements of the physical world with manual human input. Social computing also makes it possible to design digital systems that support useful functionality by making socially produced information available to physical things. Certainly, the cyber physical systems will further benefit from inherent social behaviour thus supply better services.
Therefore, the integration of computational and physical processes as well as human's social behaviour exhibits a variety of complicated systems that cannot be analyzed by the computational or physical or social sciences alone. These systems also transcend traditional computer-controlled systems because of their scale, dependence on man-machine interaction, knowledge of social information and their rich communication infrastructure that is enabled by various kinds of networks including the Internet. The interaction and confluence of cyber, physical and social world will produce data in amounts difficult to understand and exploit. It is necessary for a?holistic understanding of the behavior, vulnerabilities and guarantees of such systems and an integrated design methodology to achieve the expected properties.
CPSCom 2010 is next event of the successful International Conferences on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom), previously held as CyberSocialCom-09 (Hangzhou, China, November, 2009) and CPSC-09 (Brisbane, Australia, July, 2009). It will be an exciting international forum for researchers to exchange the information regarding advancements in the state of the art and practice of cyber, physical and social computing, as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the future.
