The 9th IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical
and Social Computing (CPSCom2016)

Dec. 15th-18th, 2016, Chengdu, Sichuan, China


As an emerging cross-disciplinary research area, the Cyber Physical
System (CPS) is attracting attention worldwide. A Cyber-Physical
System is a system featuring a combination of computational and
physical elements, all of which are capable of interacting, reflecting
and influencing each other. Furthermore, social systems are evolving
with cyber systems and physical systems along with the popularity of
online/mobile social networking. With the advent of ubiquitous sensing
and networking, future social networks turn into cyber-physical
interactions, which are attached with associated social attributes.
The emergence of the cyber-physical-social computing (CPSCom) will
significantly change the way we watch the world. Meanwhile, the
convergence of the cyber, physical, and social spaces will exhibit a
variety of complicated characteristics, which brings more open issues
and challenges for research communities.

The goal of this symposium is to promote community-wide discussion
identifying the Computational Intelligence technologies and theories
for Cyber, Physical, and Social Computing. We seek submissions of
papers which invent new techniques, introduce new methodologies,
propose new research directions and discuss approaches for unsolved

CPSCom 2016 will be held on 15-28 December 2016 in Chengdu, Sichuan,
China, co-located with GreenCom 2016, Smart Data 2016 and iThings
2016. It aims to bring together computer scientists, industrial
engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange experimental and
theoretical results, novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case
studies, and trend-setting ideas in the areas of dependability,
security, trust and/or autonomic computing systems. Topics of
particular interests include the following tracks, but are not limited

A.Wireless Sensing and Networking where intelligent entities exchange
information to achieve improved overall performance for both cyber and
physical components.
- sensor, vehicular, robot, camera, aerial and social smartphone networks
- smartphone/wearable sensing,
- non-intrusive sensing
- wireless networking technologies and opportunistic networks
- internet of things and machine-to-machine communications
- hybrid and complex networks for CPSCom
- scalability of complex networks

B. System Modeling and Control where mathematical and computational
methods are developed and applied to facilitate innovative design,
in-depth analysis, and novel insights of the fundamental principles of
CPSCom.- modeling of cyber-physical-social systems
- control theory with a clear cyber-physical tone
- autonomy with apps in mobile sensor networks, internet connected
cars, robotics, etc.
- resource-constrained systems (low power, energizing, device miniaturization)
- real-time systems and distributed computing
- generic framework and middleware for cyber-physical-social systems

C. Data-Driven Cyber-Physical-Social Systems where novel methods are
developed to reliably gather, store, transfer, and analyze large
amount of data and dataflow.- cyber-physical-social data model
- data management and data mining
- big data intelligence
- social and community intelligence
- crowd computing models
- pervasive and ubiquitous computing
- fusion/integration of data from cyber-physical-social spaces

D. Novel Applications and Services where novel designs and
implementations of test-beds, platforms, and apps will significantly
improve the speed, efficiency, and reliability of next generation
- smart city and urban computing
- smartphone and wearable apps
- personalization and social network apps
- intelligent transportation systems
- internet of robotics and intelligent industry
- healthcare and well-being
- big-data-driven apps
- business intelligence

E. Emerging Research Areas where new challenges and new ideas are shaping
- security, trust, and privacy issues in CPSCom
- social impacts of CPSCom
- cross-space sensing and computing
- human-in-the-loop systems
