CPSH 2017

The International Workshop on CPS in Healthcare

Joined with

10th IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing

IEEE CPSCom-2017

Welcome to the home page of CPSH Special Session on “CPS in Healthcare”. The CPSH will be held as part of the 10th IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom-2017) in Exeter, England, UK, on June 21-23, 2017.

CPSCom-2017 is the premier single-track workshop for reporting advances in all aspects of cyber-physical systems in healthcare including theory, tools, systems, test-beds and field deployments.


Nowadays, integrated physical sensor components with embedded intelligent software, called Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), open a new window of opportunities in diverse domains including critical healthcare. The emerged CPS in healthcare termed as Medical CPS (MCPS) promises great advances in onsite care as well as in telemedicine.

A few hospitals are trying to use robots for onsite services and robotic hand along with high-resolution cameras in Telemedicine. Currently, the Medical CPS focuses on the cognition through analyzing data from sensors attached to the body parts of a patient. The notable MCPS applications include Smart Checklist, Fall-Detecting System, HipGuard, MobiHealth, and so on.

The MCPS for distant or onsite patients includes mobile and smart physical components, service oriented management of distributed information systems, and decision support systems for autonomous prediction in highly unpredictable dynamic environments with complex requirements. The classical sensors design, Service-Oriented Computing (SOC), Business Process Management (BPM), data management, and Machine Learning (ML) techniques can be adapted, enhanced, or evolved to cater for MCPS in telemedicine domain.


In the above connection, the special session on CPSH is devoted to the challenges and opportunities of CPS for implementing effective Medical Cyber-Physical Systems (MCPS). The impact of MCPS brings up a number of potentially adverse effects on the healthcare domain, which poses challenges such as privacy, safety, security, reliability, real-time interoperability, lifecycle management, etc. of dynamic and adaptive systems to share and promote solutions, expertise, and ongoing research. For this reason, the special session on CPSH focuses on the both challenges and opportunities within the integrated components of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS); and Service Oriented Computing (SOC), Healthcare domain, Machine Learning (ML) techniques, and Business Process Management (BPM). The goal of CPSH is to bring together researchers and practitioners both from the academia and from the industry of different communities of the component areas.

  • MCPS in Telemedicine
  • Service Oriented Computing in Telemedicine
  • Lifecycle of Service Oriented MCPS
