Cyber-Physical Systems are a synergetic composition of computational control and physical actors. They aim to achieve an enhanced functionality that relies on both, the interaction with and coordination in between the physical and the virtual components.

Cyber-Physical Ecosystems are built as agile networks of cooperating, independently developed subsystems. Cyber-Physical Ecosystems are emerging at the interface between robotics, sensor networks, systems of systems engineering, and multi-agent technologies. Research on theories, architectures, models, methods, and tools are required to form a uniform and integrated perspective to systems engineering for this class of complex systems. They need to be validated and verified in key applications such as micro grids, multi-robot systems, or autonomous traffic. The domain focus of this track will be accordingly on robotics and telematics, but is open to adjacent domains as well.
We are looking for papers that address medium-scale/large-scale and medium-term/long-term challenges for Cyber-Physical Ecosystems, and indicate/demonstrate potential solutions.
