Call for Papers

Expected contributions include but are not limited to the following topics, but should all consider monitoring runtime verification of embedded systems:

  • Reconfigurable architectures
  • Heterogeneous MPSOC and Multicore
  • Sensor networks
  • Mixed-criticality systems
  • Cyber physical systems
  • Internet of things
  • Methods, software and tool chains
  • Model-driven Engineering
  • Real-time, concurrency, scheduling and temporal performance
  • File systems, storage, and I/Os
  • Performance evaluation and optimization
  • Safety and security concerns
  • Case studies and application projects

Papers can focus on new methods, theories, technologies providing monitoring services or performing on line verifications. Case-studies, examples of use are also welcome.

The workshop will be organized in two sessions. The first session will be devoted to scientific presentations of selected contributions. The second session of the workshop will be an open discussion related to European project proposals around monitoring and runtime verification for embedded systems. People who are only interested on the session about European project proposals is welcome.

DeCPS 2018 - Workshop on Challenges and new Approaches for Dependable and Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering

In recent years, the Internet-of-things has experienced an extraordinary development with a broad impact on society, however, there is still a gap between the physical world and the cyber one. This has been made possible by rapid advances in the information and communication technologies, in parallel with highly sophisticated embedded systems. As a consequence, the way systems are engineered needs to be changed, as cyber and physical systems cannot be considered disconnected anymore.

Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) constitute a new class of engineered systems, integrating software control and decision making with signals from an uncertain and dynamic environment. Internet transformed the way people interact and deal with information. CPS technology transformed the way people interact with engineered systems. The interest in Cyber Physical Systems research has tremendously increased, as proved by the considerable attention that funding agencies and programs, namely National Science Foundation (NSF) and H2020, devote to the field. On the other hand United States of America has placed CPS on the top of the priority list for federal research investment since 2008 (report of the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technologies (PCAST)). Challenges addressed are adaptability, scalability, resiliency, dependability, and usability.

CPS are considered a disruptive technology which will transform the traditional manufacturing into Industry 4.0 solutions, and are used in a very wide spectrum of applications: smart mobility, autonomous driving, digital healthcare, smart grids and buildings, digital consumer products and services. "In conclusion, the emerging Digital (R)-evolution relies heavily on Embedded Intelligent Systems technologies in domains where it is paramount that Europe takes leadership role" (Laila Gide, "The pathway to digital transformation: an opportunity for Europe", ARTEMIS Magazine 20 May 2016).
