Call for Chapters 

Chapter Proposal Submission by September 27, 2015.

      Synopsis and Aim:
      Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components. Advances in CPS will enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability that will far exceed the simple embedded systems of today. CPS are subject to threats stemming from increasing reliance on computer and communication technologies. Security threats exploit the increased complexity and connectivity of critical infrastructure systems, placing the Nation’s security, economy, public safety, and health at risk. CPS blur the lines between infrastructural and personal spaces when they provide convenient access to public services or bridge the gap between personal property and public infrastructure. This blurring is being engineered into the Internet of Things (IoT), an important exponent of CPS. With IoT, personal CPS (like phones, appliances, and automobiles) bearing personal data can reach up into public infrastructures to access services. This connectivity can result in leakage of personal data with attendant privacy concerns. 
    The purpose of the book is to refine an understanding of the key technical, social and legal issues at stake, to understand the range of technical issues affecting hardware and software in infrastructure components, as well as the blending of such systems with personal CPS. This book will present the state of the art and the state of the practice of how to address the following unique security and privacy challenges facing CPS.
