International Symposium on Networked Cyber-physical Systems (NET-CPS 2016)

September 19, 2016 - September 20, 2016

Dear colleagues,

the first “International Symposium on Networked Cyber-physical Systems (NET-CPS 2016)” will take place on September 19 and 20, 2016 at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM). The IAS is located in Garching, a suburb of Munich (Germany). We, John Baras (Univ Maryland, TUM-IAS Hans Fischer Senior Fellow) and myself would like to invite you to participate in this symposium and also to contribute a poster.


Scope and motivation


Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are technological systems where physical and cyber components are tightly integrated. Networked CPS (Net-CPS) emphasize that additional critical challenges emerge when such CPS operate in a networked setting.

Examples abound including interconnected and interacting sociotechnical systems, heterogeneous energy systems, connected cars, smart transportation, social networks over the Internet, collaborating robots & humans, and others. Humans are an important component of such systems.

This critical and emerging area has not received adequate attention by the research and development community.

The objective of the symposium is to provide a forum for presenting state of the art work and describe challenges in this emerging and critical area. Topics of interest include

– Modeling & foundations of Net-CPS

– Architectures and design for Net-CPS

– Validation and verification of Net-CPS

– Reliability and robustness of Net-CPS

– Security, privacy and trust in Net-CPS

– Collaborative autonomy for Net-CPS




Internationally renowned experts give 3 plenaries and 12 invited lectures; additionally there are two panel sessions and two poster sessions. The plenary speakers and invited lecturers are

– Karl Henrik Johansson (KTH, Sweden)

– Manfred Broy (TU Munich, Germany)

– Werner Damm (Univ Oldenburg, Germany)

– Marija Ilic (Carnegie Mellon University, USA)

– Jean-Yves Le Boudec (EPFL, Switzerland)

– Antonello Monti (RWTH Aachen Univ)

– Marta Kwiatkowska (Univ Oxford, UK)
