Congratulations to Prof. Desheng Zhang on being recognized with the Best Paper Award of ACM/IEEE 12th International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS 2021) for his coauthored paper "DeResolver: a decentralized negotiation and conflict resolution framework for smart city services"!
ACM/IEEE ICCPS is the premier single-track conference for advances in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), including theory, tools, applications, systems, testbeds, and field deployments, focusing on the development of fundamental principles that underpin the integration of cyber and physical elements. This year, ICCPS accepted 20 papers out of 77 submissions and only the DeResolver paper was recognized with the Best Paper Award.

This paper is part of a large NSF Smart City project where Prof. Desheng Zhang is the Lead PI to address the fundamental challenge of large-scale systems-of-systems with applications to Smart City Service Conflicts. This paper provided an important contribution to this direction, combining theoretical guarantees with machine learning optimization as commented by the TPC of ICCPS 21.
