Call for Papers

 

Contemporary Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are smart compound systems engineered through seamless integration of embedded information processing sub-systems and physical sub-systems. The modern smart collaborating CPS, that started to form the Cyber-Physical Systems of Systems (CPSoS) and Internet of Things (IoT), have important applications in virtually all economic and social segments, and their huge economic and societal impact rapidly increases. The CPS and IoT area undergoes a revolutionary development.

CPS&IoT’2020 Conference addresses all aspects of CPS and IoT, as well as related applications, specification, analysis, validation, architectures, technology, hardware, software, design and development methodology, and design automation tools. It includes a strong keynote programme by outstanding professionals from industry and academia. It gives an excellent opportunity to disseminate, publish and discuss fresh research results from international, European, and other R&D projects.  It is indexed in all the main Databases or Digital Libraries as IEEE xPlore, SCOPUS, WoS, etc. Selected conference papers will be invited for publication as extended journal papers in the journal Microprocessors and Microsystems, operated  by our strategic partners EUROMICRO and Elsevier. CPS&IoT’2020 Conference together with CPS&IoT’2020 Summer School constitute a premier Europe based conference event in CPS and IoT.

Its target participants are industrial and academic researchers, developers, engineers and decision-makers; academic teachers, Ph.D. and M.Sc. students; entrepreneurs, investors, research funding agents, and policy makers; and other participants who want to discuss or learn the CPS and IoT engineering.

CPS&IoT’2020 Conference builds on the success the series of seven EUROMICRO/IEEE Workshops on Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems (ECYPS) and eight Mediterranean Conferences on Embedded Computing (MECO), as well as, of the very successful CPS&IoT’2019 Summer School. It will be collocated with CPS&IoT’2020 Summer School and MECO’2020 Conference.

Topics of CPS&IoT’2020. You are encouraged to submit papers on all aspects of CPS and IoT, as well as related applications, architectures, enabling technologies, hardware, software, specification, analysis, validation, design and development methodologies, and design automation tools, that address, but are not limited to, the following topic areas:

Conference Venue:

The cental conference venue is Hotel Budva*****, Budva, Montenegro. Budva is a 3500 years old town located at the Adriatic Sea coast of Montenegro. It is a popular touristic destination, with its charming Old Town, beautiful natural environment, 35 clean sandy beaches, and proximity to many famous touristic attractions as Kotor, Boka Kotorska, Sveti Stefan, Dubrovnik, and several national parks. It is an excellent place to have the summer school and conference in a relaxed and friendly atmospheer.

Accomodation and Transport:

For accomodation Hotel Budva***** and Hotel Slovenska Plaza**** are advised, but there are many other accommodation possibilities in Budva. For full list of accomodations, prices and reservation form pls refer to... Budva is very well accessible by plane. Podgorica Airport is about 65 km from Budva and it receives regular flights from Vienna, Paris, Rome, Zürich, Frankfurt, Warsaw, Ljubljana, Belgrade, and Instanbul, while Tivat Airport (about 20km from Budva) and Dubrovnik Airport (65km from Budva) are very frequent vacation and charter flight destinations during the spring and summer time. The best way to transfer from airport to conference venue is to order taxi. Conference has a special contract with taxi companies which provide transports in good prices (Podgorica-Budva 30-35 EUR per car, Tivat-Budva 20-25 EUR per car, Dubrovnik - Budva 60-70 EUR per car). The email for taxi from Podgorica airport is royaltaxipg@gmail.com . Pls. mention MECO 2020 Conference. From Dubrovnik pls contact conference organiser. Of course you can use bus transfers.
