Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue invites submissions from researchers and practitioners working in the areas of CPS and/or IoT. The main objective of this Special Issue is to promote a venue for cutting-edge research and technology related to the dependability of CPS/IoT across the software stack. The term dependability is an umbrella term that includes several properties of interest such as security, fault tolerance, availability, performance, timeliness, energy efficiency, scalability and reliability. The focus is on developing theoretical frameworks for the development of dependable CPS/IoT as well as engineering methods for modeling, designing and implementing CPS/IoT. Application domains include medical devices, intelligent transportation systems, disaster management, robotics, smart cities, connected vehicles, underwater systems, agricultural systems and environmental monitoring and control.
