The First International Workshop on Cyber-Physical-Human System Design and Implementation

CPHS21 Workshop - virtual

The First International Workshop on Cyber-Physical-Human System Design and Implementation

Full-day workshop on May 18th, 2021 at CPS-IOT Week. The CPS-IOT Week contains five top conferences, HSCC, ICCPS, IPSN, RTAS and IoTDI, multiple workshops and tutorials and exhibitions.


Cyber-physical-human systems (CPHS) are the foundation of many emerging applications such as home assistance, healthcare and wellbeing, smart infrastructure, smart manufacturing, and human-robot interactions. As an advanced subclass of CPS and IoT systems, CPHS emphasizes constructing human-friendly environments/devices and helping human to achieve their goals. Recent advance in AI has opened the possibility of scene and human behavior understanding to a new level. This human-centric view of CPHS significantly complicates system design and implementation, in terms of open behavior states, implicit human intent, dynamic device composition, as well as ethics, privacy, and security concerns.

This workshop intents to bring together academic, industrial, and government researchers to exchange CPHS design and implementation challenges and latest research results. We will solicit invited papers and open submissions. Both papers will be reviewed based on their research vision and academic contribution. We will also solicit posters for early work.

Daqing Zhang, Chair Professor at the School of EECS, Peking University, China and Vice-Chair of CCF Pervasive Computing Technical Committee. His research interests include context-aware computing, mobile computing, big data analytics and pervasive elderly care. He obtained his Ph.D. from University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy in 1996. He is the associate editor for IEEE Pervasive Computing, IEEE Transactions on Big Data, ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology, ACM Proceeding of IMWUT, etc.. In recent years, he has been exploring new areas such as “Social and Community Intelligence (SCI)”, “Mobile Crowd Sensing (MCS)” and “Contactless Sensing” which aim to push context-aware computing to new frontiers. Dr. Zhang is the winner of the Ten-years CoMoRea impact paper award at IEEE PerCom 2013, the Honorable Mention Award at ACM UbiComp 2016 and 2015, the Best Paper award at IEEE UIC 2015 and 2012, and the Best Paper Runner Up award at Mobiquitous 2011.
