Abstract: As computers, communication bandwidth become increasingly faster and cheaper, computing and
communication capabilities will be embedded in interconnected devices placed in complex physical environ-
ments. We refer to systems that bridge the cyber-world of computing and communications with the physical one
as cyber-physical systems (CPS). The convergence of such disciplines raises significant engineering challenges
because of the scale, the need to bridge physical and software domains, and the need to operate efficiently,
securely and reliably. We propose to develop innovative methods and tools for three critical sub-problems: 1) Ef-
ficient Resource Allocation, i.e. the capability to efficiently parse the potentially enormous amount of data to distill
the information relevant to failure/attack detection, estimation, control, and decision-making; 2-) Security, i.e. the
capability to detect malicious attacks, to guarantee continuity of operations with gracefully decreased functional-
ities, and to ultimately thwart attacks by reconfiguring and restoring full functionality; 3-) Robustness/ Reconfigu-
rability, i.e. the capability to handle change. In this talk we will discuss novel approaches for sensor scheduling
