CPS&IoT’2019 Summer School

Date: Jun 10, 2019 12:00 am – Jun 14, 2019 11:00 am
Location: Budva, Montenegro

CPS&IoT’2019 Summer School on Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet-of-Things

in collaboration with Euromicro, IEEE and MANT

collocated with ECYPS 2019 – 7th EUROMICRO/IEEE Workshop on Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems and MECO 2019 – 8th Mediterranean Conference on Embedded Computing

You are encouraged to participate in this very special event that gives a unique opportunity to interact with outstanding specialists in the area of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet-of-Things (IoT), and to get acquainted with huge opportunities and impact of CPS and IoT, serious issues and challenges of their development, as well as, newest concepts, advanced knowledge and modern design tools created in numerous ongoing and recently finished European R&D projects in CPS and IoT. The Summer School is possible thanks to involvement of many outstanding researchers and developers from several European projects. 

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are smart compound systems engineered through seamless integration of embedded information processing sub-systems and physical sub-systems. The modern smart collaborating CPS, that started to form the Cyber-Physical Systems of Systems (CPSoS) and Internet of Things (IoT), have important applications in virtually all economic and social segments, and their huge economic and societal impact rapidly increases. There is however a common opinion that more well-trained researchers and developers are needed in this rapidly developing field, and more collaboration among different European projects. 

This Summer School aims at serving the following main purposes: 

  • dissemination and exchange of advanced knowledge and project results from numerous European R&D projects in CPS and IoT; 
  • advanced training of industrial and academic researchers, developers, engineers and decision-makers; academic teachers, Ph.D. and M.Sc. students; entrepreneurs, investors, research funding agents, and policy makers; and other participants who want to learn about CPS and IoT engineering; 
  • promotion and facilitation of international contacts and collaboration among the Summer School participants. 

Distinguishing features of this advanced Summer School are that its lectures, demonstrations, and practical hands-on sessions will be given by top European specialists in particular CPS and IoT fields form industry and academia, and will deliver very fresh advanced knowledge. They are based on results from numerous currently running or recently finished European R&D projects in CPS and IoT, what gives an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with issues and challenges of CPS and IoT development; actual industrial problems, designs and case studies; and new concepts, advanced knowledge and modern design tools created in the European R&D projects. 

CPS&IoT’2019 target audience includes industrial and academic researchers, developers, engineers, decision-makers and managers; academic teachers, Ph.D. and M.Sc. students; entrepreneurs, investors, research funding agents, and policy makers. The school is open to everybody, but previous knowledge or equivalent practical experience at least at the Bachelor level in engineering (e.g. system, computer, electronic, electrical, automotive, aviation, mechanical, or industrial engineering), computer science, informatics, applied physics or similar is recommended. 

Only a limited number of participants will be admitted. 

Do not wait with your registration, but register as soon as possible. 

Industry Participation is encouraged. 

CPS&IoT’2019 Summer School is not only to follow courses and learn new knowledge on CPS and IoT from top professionals, but to meet people, interact and discuss with outstanding researchers, developers, academic lecturers, advanced students, and other participants, collaborate or start collaborations, and meet many talented people who may become employees of your companies as well. 


Budva is a 3500 years old town located at the Adriatic Sea coast of Montenegro. It is a popular touristic destination, with its charming Old Town, beautiful natural environment, 35 clean sandy beaches, and proximity to many famous touristic attractions as Kotor, Boka Kotorska, Sveti Stefan, Dubrovnik, and several national parks. It is an excellent place to have a summer school in a relaxed and friendly atmospheer. 

Venue: Hotel Budva, Budva, Montenegro 

Accommodation and Travel 

Hotel Budva and Hotel Slovenska Plaza are advised for accommodation. The accommodation prices in Slovenska Plaza should be not higher than € 45 for a single room per night, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are many other accommodation possibilities in Budva.
