Workshop on Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems Education

October 16, 2014 during ES-Week

Paper submission: July 31, 2014

The increasing deployment, scale and evolution of Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems steadily increases the importance of education in the area!

Embedded and cyber-physical systems design requires multidisciplinary skills from areas such as control and signal processing theory, electronics, computer engineering and science, telecommunication and networking, physical systems modeling, etc., as well as application domain knowledge. Demand for embedded and cyber-physical system engineers has motivated a growing interest in the question of educating specialists in this domain. As system designs grow more complex and the time to market diminishes, quality education becomes more and more important. The WESE workshop series aims to bring researchers, educators, and industrial representatives together to assess needs and share design, research, and experiences in embedded and cyber-physical systems education.

WESE 2014 represents the 10th workshop in this series.

The focus for this year's edition is in particular to raise questions for the education of tomorrow - What skills and capabilities are required by the engineers of tomorrow and how should the corresponding educational programs be formed in order to provide experts ready to engineer the Cyber-Physical Systems that will greatly impact our future society?

Particular topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Industrial needs regarding embedded and cyber-physical systems education
  • Experiences and trade-offs in curricula design and implementation
  • Experiences of educational forms, e.g. MOOCs and remote labs
  • Position papers regarding the curricula of tomorrow.
  • Hands-on experiences, labs, "industry as lab"
  • Educational aspects of
    • Embedded systems, Cyber-physical systems, Internet of things
    • Embedded Control, Interfaces to the physical world
    • Real-time computing and Distributed systems issues
    • Architecture, design and hardware/software co-design
    • Embedded system networks
    • Applications of embedded and cyber-physical systems
