Call for Papers

21st International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Infrastructures (WETICE-2012) (http://wetice.tuniview.com/)

Toulouse, France   June 25-27, 2012

Track on Cyber Physical Society with SOA, BPM and Sensor Networks

Call for Papers

Along with the stronger capability of computing devices and the cheaper and faster communication networks, computing will be embedded in all types of physical resources, and applications with big societal impact and economic benefit will be created in time and across space. The tight conjoining of, and coordination between, computational (or cyber) and physical resources for achieving this kind of applications are the objectives of cyber physical systems. Generally, cyber physical systems feature a tight integration between computation, communication, and control in their operation and interactions with the task environment in which they are deployed. Beyond the cyber physical systems, the cyber physical society concerns not only the cyber space and the physical space but also humans, knowledge, society and culture. It is a future coordination and collaboration environment that connects nature, cyber space and society under certain rules. Research on cyber physical society will lead to the extension of information science and technology.

While the cyber physical society describes the future environment of collaboration, nowadays, service oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) are coined to specify how the computational resources can coordinate and collaborate, and (wireless) sensor networks (SNs) provide means to sensing the physical resources and interconnecting physical and cyber resources. Leveraging existing techniques (SOA, BPM, and SNs etc) for achieving the vision of cyber physical society is promising. The core scientific problems include the scalability, heterogeneity, integration, security, and the dynamics of the underlying infrastructures. The data management, as well as the semantic interoperability, in the cyber physical society is also posing a great challenge. This track aims to provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing research, development, and deployment efforts in achieving the vision of cyber physical society by means of current techniques.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scopes:

·         Cyber physical systems

·         Interactive computing in cyber physical society

·         Architectures and principles of cyber physical society

·         Security issues of cyber physical society

·         Heterogeneous resources integration for SOA/BPM/SNs in cyber physical society

·         Semantic interoperability for SOA/BPM/SNs in cyber physical society

·         Semantic web for the Collaboration in cyber physical society

·         Semantic data management in the sensor networks/cyber physical society

·         Service oriented computing in cyber physical society

·         Business process management in cyber physical society

·         Sensor networks in cyber physical society

·         Applications of cyber physical systems and cyber physical society

·         SOA, BPM and SNs for pervasive systems

Submission Details

We encourage submissions of full papers and position papers presenting novel ideas that may lead to insightful technical discussions at this track. Papers should contain original contributions not published or submitted elsewhere, and references to related state-of-the-art work. All submissions should be electronic (in PDF/DOC) and will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members.

Submission should include the title of the paper, the names and affiliations of the authors, a 150-word abstract and at most six keywords. Submission should follow the IEEE format (single spaced, two columns, 10pt, Times/Roman font) and not exceed six pages, including figures. Detailed guideline is available at http://www.computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm. Authors should also provide contact addresses, if different from the submitting electronic address. Please submit papers by email to the track chair (zhangbing.zhou@gmail.com).

Selected high-quality papers will be recommended for publication in international journal of Information Technology (http://jit.ndhu.edu.tw/callforpaper/JIT_Special_Issue_CPS_20120111.pdf) after extension. JIT is SCI(E)-indexed with an impact factor 0.448.
