                   CALL FOR PAPERS

The 2013 IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical

             and Social Computing (CPSCom 2013)


           Beijing, China, August 20-23, 2013



As an emerging cross-disciplinary research area, the Cyber Physical Sys-

tem (CPS) is attracting attention worldwide. A Cyber-Physical Systems is

a system featuring a combination of computational and physical ele-

ments, all of which are capable of interacting, reflecting and influencing

each other. Furthermore, social systems are evolving with cyber systems

and physical systems along with the popularity of online social network-

ing. With the advent of ubiquitous sensing and networking, future social

networks turn into cyber-physical interactions, which are attached with

associated social attributes.

The emergence of the cyber-physical-social computing will significantly

change the way we see the world. In the mean time, the convergence of

the physical, cyber, and social spaces will exhibit a variety of compli-

cated characteristics, which brings more open issues and challenges for

research communities.

The 2013 IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical, and Social

Computing (CPSCom 2013) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge fo-

rum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art

advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infra-

structure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the CPSCom, as well as to

identify emerging research topics and define the future. CPSCom 2013 is

the 6th edition of the successful series, previously held as CPSCom 2012

(Besançon, France), CPSCom 2011 (Dalian, China), CPSCom 2010

(Hangzhou, China), CyberSocialCom 2009 (Hangzhou, China), and CPSC

2009 (Brisbane, Australia).



Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Track 1: Cyber-physical Systems and Society

Track 2: Social Computing

Track 3: Pervasive/Ubiquitous Control, Computing and Networking

Track 4: Sensor/Actuator Networks

Track 5: Security, Trustworthiness and Privacy

Track 6: Applications and Services

Track 7: Cloud Computing and Data Mining



Authors are invited to submit original papers that MUST NOT have been

submitted to or published in any other workshop, conference, or jour-

nal. Full Papers (up to 8 pages) and Short Papers (up to 4 pages) are

solicited. Detailed submission instructions could be found on the confe-

rence website http://www.china-iot.net/CPSCom_submission.htm. All papers

will be reviewed by the Program Committee for significance, originality,

accuracy, and clarity.



Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that, if the paper

is accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the conference to

present the work in order for the paper to be included in the IEEE Digital

Library. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of CPSCom

2013 by IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Extended versions of se-

lected papers will be considered for publication in several SCI-index in-

ternational journals (check the website for details).



Submit a workshop paper to one of the workshops.  Workshop proceedings will

be published by IEEE CS Press. Workshops with more than 15 papers will be

granted with a free complimentary registration for the leading workshop
