Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

Cyber-Physical Systems Program Webinar

March 26th, 2014 / in Uncategorized / by Shar Steed

National Science Foundation (NSF) [credit: NSF]NSF is holding a webinar on Thursday, April 3, 2014 – 2:30 pm EDT to share information about the recently released solicitation, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).

Please register here  by 11:59pm EDT on Wednesday, April 2, 2014.

From the NSF announcement available here:

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 technology will transform the way people interact with engineered systems — just as the Internet has transformed the way people interact with information. New smart CPS will drive innovation and competition in sectors such as agriculture, energy, transportation, building design and automation, healthcare, and manufacturing.


In 2014, NSF is working closely with DHS S&T, DOT FHWA, and, through FHWA, the DOT Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Joint Program Office (JPO), to identify basic research needs in CPS common across multiple application domains, along with opportunities for accelerated transition to practice. To help achieve these aims, this CPS program solicitation aims to:

·         Pursue fundamental research in CPS that spans multiple domains;

·         Identify early-stage CPS research that addresses important needs of mission agencies as described in II.C, and has potential for accelerated maturation, demonstration, and transition to practice; and

·         Encourage research utilization of both academic and industry testbeds that can integrate research components.


This webinar is designed to describe the goals and foci of the CPS solicitation, help investigators understand its scope, and answer any questions potential Principal Investigators (PIs) may have.

The webinar will be archived for later viewing and linked to the CPS program web page. The archived version will be available within a few days after the webinar.
