ARES 2015 / Cyber-Physical Systems

The Special Issue emphasize the interplay between foundations and practical issues of security in emerging areas such as e-government, m-government, location-based applications, ubiquitous computing, autonomous computing, chances of grid computing etc. The ARES Conference is devoted to the critical examination and research challenges of the various aspects of Secure and Dependable Computing and the definition of a future road map. The papers included in the Special Issue will highlight the various aspects of cyber-physical systems.
