IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) Special Issue on
Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)

IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) is seeking original
manuscripts for Special Issue on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), scheduled to
be published in the January ? June 2013 issue. The coordination and tight
link between computational, virtual and physical resources will drive the
potential of having a pervasive effect in the citizens everyday life,
satisfying various needs and also creating new opportunities for the
introduction of services that will enhance the quality of life of the
society as a whole. Research advances in cyber-physical systems promise to
transform our world with systems that will far exceed those of today in
terms of: effectiveness, adaptability, autonomicity, energy efficiency,
precision, reliability, safety, usability, scalability, stability and
user-centric applicability. Moreover, recently the Sensor Web concept came
into foreground, aiming at combining distributed sensing with the ubiquitous
connectivity and accessibility of the web, therefore facilitating the close
interaction of digital world with physical world.

Cyber-physical systems find direct applicability in a wide range of areas
and disciplines, including for instance (but not limited to): a) Smart Grid
technologies: that aim at facilitating a reliable and efficient delivery of
electricity to consumers using digital communications and security
technologies, and intelligent monitoring and control of the delivery network
and electricity consumption b) Wireless sensing, monitoring and networking:
to enable distributed monitoring systems of numerous smart sensors and
actuators, mobile devices, RFIDs, (ground, aerial, aquatic) robots etc.,
which revolutionize a variety of application areas with unprecedented
density, fidelity, and scalability of environment instrumentation; c)
Vehicular cyber-physical and intelligent transportation systems: that
integrate computing, communication, and storage capabilities with monitoring
and control of vehicles in the physical world to deal with the grand
challenges of safe, green, and efficient transportation; d) Smart Living
technologies: smart city (e.g. increasing security, comfort and convenience,
green energy), intelligent park and space, healthcare systems.  Ambient
intelligence, context-awareness, data mining, embedded system and software,
evolutionary computation, modeling environments and human behavior, social
networks, big data, security, privacy and trust, ubiquitous computing and
other technologies and methodologies applied in CPS are also welcome.

Towards merging the information-centric character and node-centric physical
world connectivity, well-defined analytical models, methodologies and
experimental validations  are required of how to build such systems capable
of coping with the entire chain of operations and orchestrating the various
parts together in a flexible, efficient and economic way. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Architectural framework for distributed CPS
- Resource Management in large scale CPS
- Evaluations and field trials of CPS and solutions Security, privacy,
scalability, and reliability issues
- Design and cross-layer optimizations 
- Vehicular CPS and intelligent transportation systems 
- Scalable monitoring applications with sensors, actuators, smart
phones,  robots, and other wireless mobile devices
- Smart Living and Smart grid technologies
- Modeling and fault tolerance
