Cyber-Social Learning Systems Workshop 2
November 2-3, 2016
Graduate Hotel, Ann Arbor
615 E Huron St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104, United States
Over the last decade, we have made enormous progress establishing scientific and engineering principles for cyber-physical systems (CPS). We are now on the threshold of a world of physical systems that are deeply computational, dynamic, learning, and connected at all scales, yielding radical improvements in physical systems properties.
The next major frontier in science and engineering research and development is the integration of cyber-physical with human and social systems and phenomena across all major sectors and at all scales. Closing the loop from sensing to performance at all scales will give rise to cyber-social learning systems.
This second workshop, in a series of three workshops on cyber-social learning systems, focused on crosscutting basic science and engineering research challenges, grounded in the realities of sectors including health and healthcare, communities, and education.
Participants will explore aspects of CSLS that generalize across the sectors along with aspects that are sector-specific. Using these resources and working in a series of small group, keynote, and plenary sessions, the participants identified a broader set of research challenges. Attention was given to both basic and applied research challenges and opportunities that require integration of diverse disciplines across the computational and the social and behavioral sciences. Specific objectives included:
- From a broader perspective provided by the larger set of sector participants, verify that the conception of a cybersocial learning systems, developed in Workshop 1, applies across all three target domains and beyond.
- Enrich the sectorspecific scenarios developed in Workshop 1.
- Identify specific challenges that must be overcome, and promising approaches to overcoming them, within each of the target sectors; specify possible testbed designs involving endtoend experimental cybersocial learning systems in these sectors and the integrated communities of computer science, engineering, and sector researchers that would be needed to develop and employ these testbeds for research.
- Map sectorspecific challenges, insights, and approaches to the broader crosscutting vision to further develop and test/validate that vision.
- Define specific challenge problems: achievements that the research community could demonstrate in 3, 5, 10 year time frames, with clear progress measures for each within individual sectors.

The results of the first workshop will be shared with all participants in advance of Workshop 2. A teleconference for those participants in Workshop 2 who did not participate in Workshop 1, will be held to orient these individuals to the series and to identify any concerns regarding the results from the first workshop. All participants will also receive, in advance of Workshop 2, the research challenges that were developed in the April 2013 NSF-sponsored workshop on the Learning Health System, edited by the Planning Committee to a format more applicable across multiple sectors.
The second workshop will open with a review of the first workshop, selected sectorspecific scenarios, and the 2013 research challenges as edited. Using these resources and working in a series of small group, keynote, and plenary sessions, the participants will identify a broader set of research challenges that applies across all sectors, with attention to generalization. Following completion of this task and with the research challenges as a basis, the group will identify challenge problems, associating each with a timeline for its achievement and the characteristics thought to be important in addressing each problem.
The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) will cover travel expenses for all participants who desire it. Participants are asked to make their own travel arrangements to get to the workshop, including purchasing airline tickets. Following the symposium, CCC will circulate a reimbursement form that participants will need to complete and submit, along with copies of receipts for amounts exceeding $75.
In general, standard Federal travel policies apply: CCC will reimburse for non-refundable economy airfare on U.S. Flag carriers; and no alcohol will be covered. Use the Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), it is 30 mins from the hotel.
For more information, please see the Guidelines for Participant Reimbursements from CCC.
Additional questions about the reimbursement policy should be directed to Ann Drobnis, CCC Director (adrobnis [at] cra.org).
