Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are the next generation of embedded ICT systems that are becoming pervasive in every aspect of our daily life and their applications can lead to enormous societal impact and economic benefit.

Examples include smart cities, smart grids, medical devices, production lines, automotive controllers, and robotics. In this edition of ERCIM News there is a special theme on "Cyber-Physical Systems" which include among others, references to EU-funded FP7 projects in the area of CPS and some of the theoretical and practical challenges that we are currently facing in this domain.
