ACM SIGBED is a focal point within the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for all aspects of embedded computing systems and cyber-physical systems, including both software and hardware.

Embedded systems is recognized as a key discipline, which includes new computer and systems science foundations, new design technology, and new hardware and software frameworks. SIGBED sponsors major scientific events such as ESWEEK and CPSWEEK. Members of the SIGBED community serve on the editorial boards of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, ACM Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems, ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks, and ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems.


Researchers create fabric-friendly sensors that can locate objects and control other devices, win best paper and presentation at @AcmSigbed’s conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks. @swarunk
