The 2012 Performance Metrics for Intelligent Systems (PerMIS'12) Workshop will be the eleventh in a series of workshops dedicated to defining measures and methodologies of evaluating performance of intelligent systems. Started in 2000, the PerMIS series focuses on applications of performance measures to applied problems in commercial, industrial, homeland security, and military applications. PerMIS'12 will focus on the methodologies and techniques of performance measurement for developing and engineering the next generation of cyber physical systems that facilitate seamless human-machine collaboration. In the context of the Workshop, Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) are taken to mean the “tight conjoining of and coordination between computational and physical resources”.
