[robotics-worldwide] [meetings] Final CFP: 1st Workshop on Benchmarking Cyber-Physical Networks and Systems (CPSBench)

Sebastian Trimpe

                          Call for Papers          
  1st Workshop on Benchmarking Cyber-Physical Networks and Systems
               (CPSBench - co-located with CPSWEEK)  

                April 10, 2018  -  Porto, Portugal  


Over the last decade, research on cyber-physical networks and systems has
led to smart systems at different scales and environments, from smart homes
to smart cities and smart factories. Significant progress has been made
through contributions in areas as diverse as embedded and real-time systems,
robotics and control, wireless communication and networking, signal
processing, and machine learning. Despite these advances, it is difficult to
measure and compare the utility of these results due to a lack of standard
evaluation criteria and methodologies. This problem concerns the evaluation
against the state of the art in an individual area, the comparability of
different integrated designs that span multiple areas (e.g., control and
networking), and the applicability of tested scenarios to the present and
future real-world cyber-physical applications and deployments. This state of
affairs is alarming as it may significantly hinder further progress in
cyber-physical networks and systems research.

The Workshop on Benchmarking Cyber-Physical Networks and Systems (CPSBench)
brings together researchers from the different sub-communities to engage in
a lively debate on all facets of rigorously evaluating and comparing
cyber-physical networks and systems. CPSBench provides a venue for learning
about each other’s challenges and evaluation methodologies and for debating
future research agendas to jointly define the performance metrics and
benchmarking scenarios that matter from an overall system’s perspective.

We invite researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to submit
short position papers. We particularly encourage submissions that focus on
one of the following:
 - identify fundamental challenges and open questions in rigorous
benchmarking and evaluation of cyber-physical networks and systems;
 - offer a constructive critique on the current practice and state of
experimental comparison;
 - report on success stories or failures with using standard evaluation
 - present example benchmark systems and approaches from any of the relevant
communities (embedded systems, networking, control, robotics, machine
learning, etc.);
 - propose new research directions, methodologies, or tools to increase the
level of reproducibility and comparability of evaluation results.
Well-reasoned arguments or preliminary evaluations are sufficient to support
a paper’s claims.

Accepted papers will be published as part of the CPSWEEK proceedings.
Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the

Submitted papers must contain between 4 and 6 single-spaced U.S. letter
pages, including all figures, tables, and references. All submissions must
be written in English. See website for more information:

Authors should indicate their names and affiliations on the first page of
the paper. All submissions must be in PDF format and render without error
using standard viewers (e.g., Acrobat Reader). Submitted papers must differ
significantly in content from previously published papers and must not be
currently under review for any other publication.  

All papers must be submitted through https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__cpsbench18.neslab.it_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=69rA-3v0K5ymcVkGSWQW9aLytsrGwrTdf9XgZewvdDM&s=NIx8H2xqCkXxABdCjIWN_HqnqpKPJ4tZUcbOvds6Z1Y&e=.
