The 1st Cyber-Physical Systems Symposium CyPhySS 2017 is being organised by the Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber-Physical Systems and will take place at the Indian Institute of Science in Bengaluru during 19-21 July 2017. Many new CPS-related academic and research initiatives were launched this year in India, and the years ahead will be exciting times for CPS researchers in both academia and industry. The Symposium will bring eminent researchers in the area of CPS to Bengaluru to share recent CPS advancements, to discuss interesting applications, and to identify challenging future CPS research directions. CyPhySS 2017 will feature a range of topics — CPS applications in autonomous systems and robotics, control and optimisation of smart grids and transportation networks, software engineering for CPS, hybrid systems and control, and CPS security. The Symposium will provide a great opportunity to network, share recent research results, and generate new ideas. Please look at the call for posters and demos. We look forward to your contributions, and to welcoming you to the future of CPS at CyPhySS 2017.
