3rd European Experts' Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems

3rd European Experts' Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems

Event organised by the CyPhERS project (Cyber-Physical European Roadmap and Strategy)
Stockholm, Sept. 23rd with proceeding social event on Sept. 22nd (evening), 2014
Venue: KTH – Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden

At the intersection of the physical and virtual worlds lies a significant research and development area that has the potential to impact and substantially improve people's quality of life across cultures, nations, social classes and educational levels. Current efforts are still relatively fragmented across academic and industrial communities, lacking established pathways for the transfer of knowledge and expertise, and for the synergetic coordination of existing efforts.

CyPhERS (Cyber-Physical European Roadmap and Strategy) is a project funded by the European Commission whose aim is to survey, analyse, and evaluate the economic, technical, scientific, and societal significance of Cyber-Physical Systems for Europe with the ultimate goal of (a) developing of an integrated strategic Cyber-Physical Systems research agenda for Europe, (b) deriving comprehensive recommendations for action that will cover the identification and prioritisation of research areas, support measures for both horizontal and vertical cooperation, and outline possible research partnerships, and (c) addressing questions related to research funding as well as to training, standardisation and policies.

This is the 3rd Experts’ workshop organized by the CyPhERS project, with the purpose to present and discuss CyPhERS results so far, with specific emphasis on discussing and eliciting feedback for the

  • Draft recommendations as part of the CPS agenda developed by CyPhERS,
  • encompassing technical as well as societal aspects of relevance for CPS.

The format of the workshop will be interactive with discussion, providing the workshop participants an excellent opportunity to provide their feedback and suggestions with respect to European efforts on Cyber-Physical Systems. The workshop will provide a fruitful venue for exchanging ideas, and learning from other experts arriving from all corners of the continent as well as from manifold domains associated with the emerging Cyber-Physical Systems.

Chief outcome of the workshop will be the inputs to the CPS agenda to be produced by CyPhERS by the end of the year.

The workshop will take place on September 23rd in Stockholm with a proceeding social and networking event in the evening of September 22nd. During the morning of Sept. 23rd, short talks will provide inspiration for the discussion part which will involve active exchange and gathering of feedback in a forum of small, interactive groups à la World Café.
