Welcome to the second IEEE International workshop on Communication, Computing, and Networking in Cyber Physical Systems (CCNCPS 2018) In association with IEEE International Conference on Communications (IEEE ICC 2018). The workshop will take place  in Abu Dhabi, UAE, 9-13 December 2018.  

The new paradigms and tremendous advances in computing, communications and control have provided and supported wide range of applications in all domains of life, in particular, bridging the physical components and the cyber space leading to the Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). The notion of CPS is to use recent computing, communication, and control methods to design and operate intelligent and autonomous systems using cutting edge technologies. This requires the use of computing resources for sensing, processing, analysis, predicting, understanding of data, and then communication resources for interaction, intervention, and interface management, and finally provide control for systems so that they can inter-operate, evolve, and run in a stable evidence-based environment. CPS has extraordinary significance for the future of several industrial domains and hence, it is expected that the complexity in CPS will continue to increase due to the integration of cyber components with physical and industrial systems. This workshop solicits unpublished research work related to the latest challenges, technologies, solutions, techniques and fundamentals pertaining to communication, computing, networking, control.
