About this Workshop

The objective of the workshop is to identify the research directions required to support the use of cyber technologies in shaping the evolution of future energy systems with the aim of increasing the functionality, reliability, and availability of energy sources, adaptive demand, and delivery. Cyber-physical systems are those in which the cyber and physical components are tightly integrated at all scales and levels. Position papers should propose innovative concepts and ideas for integrating the "cyber" (computation, communications, and control that are discrete, logical, and switched in real time) and the "physical" (natural and human-made systems governed by the laws of physics and operating in continuous time — in this case, electric energy) into overall "systems."

The workshop will address the R&D challenges and opportunities for building the next generation of high-confidence energy cyber-physical systems that are innovative, resilient, and sustainable. Discussions will focus on the strategic role of CPS R&D in:

Of particular interest will be the views offered by experts from industry, academia, and government who will be asked to:

This workshop is co-chaired by Professor Marija Ilic of Carnegie Mellon University, and Dr. Clas Jacobson and Dr. Vladimir Blasko, both of United Technologies Corporation. See the workshop organizers page for the full list of committee members, government points of contact, and sponsors.
