The CPHS 2016 Organizing Committee is open to accepting contributions for the 1st IFAC Conference on
Cyber-Physical&Human-Systems (CPHS 2016). 

CPHS 2016 will be held in Florianopolis, Brazil, 7-9 December, 2016, under the auspices of IFAC, the International Federation of Automatic Control.

The interplay of humans with highly automated systems with complex dynamics and complex controllers or the design of complex control systems to assist the humans need a deep study that requires multidisciplinary joint efforts. In CPHS 2016, different application areas (healthcare, robotics, operation in hazardous environments, transport – ground (automotive, railway), air, space, etc) are
considered, according to four scenarios:

1. Human-Machine Symbiosis
2. Humans as operators of complex engineering systems
3. Humans as agents in multi-agent systems
4. Humans as elements in controlled systems

The conference topics are organized according to these four scenarios  and the complete list is accessible via :

The conference opens possibilities for industry, universities and  research facilities to exchange about the future of  Cyber-Physical&Human-Systems, to identify solutions to recent problems,  to formulate new theoretical challenges to cope with needs in the joint  Cyber-Physical&Human-Systems control and to identify new application  areas requesting research advances.

The keynote speakers for CPHS 2016 will include
– Homayoon Kazerooni
– Franck Mars
– Bérénice Mettler
– Gérard Roucairol
– Petr Stluka
