Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) are the result of THE omnipresent and massive integration of connected computer systems with the physical world. As such, their design and development involves a range of disciplines from mechanical engineering and electrical engineering, to control engineering and robotics, to computer science and informatics. Our school is designed to cover a range of topics touching upon different aspects of CPS design and development for our target audience with various backgrounds. Our speakers are without exception world-renowned leading researchers with complementary expertise.



Alessandro Abate is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford since 2013. His research interests lie on the analysis, verification, and optimal control of heterogeneous and complex dynamical models - in particular of stochastic hybrid systems - and in their applications in the life sciences and in cyber-physical systems (particularly involving energy and power networks).


Wang Yi is a professor of Embedded Systems at Uppsala University, since 2009. His interests are in models, algorithms and software tools for building and analyzing computer systems in a systematic manner to ensure predictable behaviors.


Gul Agha is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His research is in the area of programming models and languages for open distributed and embedded computation.


Pitu B. Mirchandani [BS/MS degrees in Engineering, UCLA; S.M/ScD. Degrees, Operations Research, MIT] is a Professor of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) where he holds the AVNET Chair for Supply Chain Networks. He is also a Senior Sustainability Scientist within the Global Institute of Sustainability and the Director of Advanced Transportation and Logistics Systems (ATLAS) Research Center.


Farrokh Aminifar is with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran. He has also been collaborating with the Robert W. Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL, USA, since 2009.
