C2PS Symposium

C2PS Symposium

Symposium Message

Khalifa University Center for Cyber-Physical Systems (KU-C2PS) is pleased to announce its first symposium which gathering the center researchers and potential research partner organizations and companies. The event will proudly present the center’s projects under two of its four themes; “Networks and Communication Technology, and Computation Architecture.”
The projects of the “Networks and Communication Technology” theme have been placed to address several major challenges for the realization of the next generation wireless networks, including the high energy and spectral efficiency, low latency, and massive connectivity. On another hand, the theme of “Computation Architecture” is focused on research related to selecting the proper platform, infrastructure, and technologies to facilitate and support at any scale the required compute, storage, and networking functionalities for CPS and IoT ecosystems.
We aim to create an understanding and practice of empowerment, with the support and development of existing technologies capabilities, and responsibility for global standardization. We are thus improving the quality of life, as well as cyber technology experience for users in the long term.

Who is this this for?

This event is for policy and decision-makers, innovators, researchers, as well as technology companies who are interested in changing the way in which we practice 5G and Emerging Distributed Architecture.

Director Message

“We are privileged to live in such a dynamic time where emerging technologies create endless opportunities for value creation.

Looking back to the last decade, we can easily highlight the game-changers, i.e. discoveries that ushered in a new framework for thinking, spurred scientific enquiry, and revolutionized our lives. Thanks to such discoveries, we no longer assert that something is technologically impossible, we only wonder how long before it will fit in the hand of a child. The Internet-of-Things (IoT) promises to add efficiency at all layers of our globalized society’s fabric. From industry, to business, government, and even entertainment, IoT is going to change our lives for the better enabling a smarter, sustainable future. The Center on Cyber-Physical Systems (C2PS) carries out applied and theoretical research to further our understanding of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) integral to the 4th Industrial Revolution, IoT, and Smart Communities.

We are committed to researching the complete range of technological areas underlying CPS, supporting secure technological innovations required to achieve the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, and make existing businesses more efficient and profitable.”
