CPS Summer School 2017
Designing Cyber-Physical Systems - From concepts to implementation
Multi-objective Methodologies and Tools for Self-healing and Adaptive Systems

Porto Conte Ricerche, Alghero - Sardinia - Italy | September 25-30, 2017 |

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are complex and autonomous ensembles of different components that interact to offer smart and adaptive functionalities. These systems are increasingly used in a variety of applications with a growing market, potentially bringing about significant social benefits. However, there is no such thing as a free lunch, and there area several new challenges and trade-offs to face when designing CPS, especially since they should be able to adapt to the changing environments, or heal themselves. Uncertain operation environments and interactions with humans as users and/or as operators complicate the scenarios of these ever increasingly pervasive systems.

The CPS summer school is targeted at students, research scientists, and R&D experts from academia and industry, who want to learn about CPS engineering and applications. The program is composed of both lectures and practical sessions, covering all the design phases of CPS (i.e., from concept to the definition of the final system and the discussion of the key challenges).

Topics ( include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Market trends for CPS
  • Applications of CPS, including wearable, biomedical, Industry 4.0, cognitive, and automotive systems
  • Hardware/software co-design, adaptivity, and multi-view modeling
  • Low power design of heterogeneous systems
  • Tools for dataflow design, high-level synthesis, hardware/software co-design, and coarse/fine reconfiguration
  • Security in adaptive and interconnected systems

Application and Registration:

The school is open to up to 40 participants. Applications will close on June 20th, 2017, and accepted participants will be notified by June, 25th 2017.
