Smart Cyber-Physical Systems Symposium (SCPS 2021)

Leuven, Belgium. November 1-4, 2021 


The smart cyber-physical systems (SCPS) are complex due to the composition and the combination of their components and physical elements of different aspects. Especially, the components are intelligent and autonomous executing sub-tasks to achieve global objectives by supporting different AI techniques under a variety of Internet of Things (IoT) constraints. Examples of such systems can be found in manufactories, smart cities, avionics, automotive systems, nuclear power plants, etc. Effectively, the different SCPS requirements especially dependability, safety, reliability, maintenance, and security are challenging due to the inherent complexity of SCPSs compositions. Moreover, it is not sufficient to ascertain one of them in isolation of one individual component or only a specific requirement. Further, faults, errors, and threats in SCPS could also be due to software programming imperfections, software failures that are directly triggered by hardware failure or, the dynamic/static interaction between the physical, digital and software parts especially in the presence of self-adaptive architecture, smart algorithms, and social actors. Therefore, SCPS must be studied as a whole, which sets this emerging discipline apart from these individually established fields. SCPS2021 forum provides a platform for professionals from academia, government, and industry to discuss how to address the increasing challenges facing SCPS. SCPS2021 invites submissions discussing theoretical and practical solutions tackling SCPS’ challenges. SCPS2021 topics include, but are not limited to:
