The 2011 Workshop for Developing Dependable and Secure Automotive Cyber-Physical Systems from Components (DDSA-CPS) was held in Troy, Michigan on March 17-18, 2011. The goal of this workshop, a follow-on to previous workshops on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), was to address emerging challenges relative to reliability, availability, safety, and security attributes of software-intensive electronic automotive control systems and road infrastructure systems. Because previous CPS workshops have motivated the need for broad public-funded research programs in Cyber-Physical Systems, we now have general recognition of the importance of CPS research. This workshop was intended to flesh out and refine the technical needs for the next round of research programs. In addition, the expanded role of public funding in the inter-agency context needed to be explored and defined. The workshop report can be found at
