On April 14, 2014, our Action Line Cyber-Physical Systems will present the 1st International Workshop on Emerging Ideas and Trends in Engineering of Cyber-Physical Systems (EITEC’ 14), taking place as a part of CPS Week 2014 in Andel's Hotel (s. picture) in Berlin, Germany on April 14-17, 2014.
Cyber-physical systems are based on networked embedded software systems which connect computational entities in a collaborative manner with physical entities of the real world to achieve an overall purpose of its users. Together with available content and services on the World Wide Web, they build networks of systems that integrate with the physical environment. This will lead to radical changes in many application fields (e.g. energy, mobility, healthcare) and will have an impact on our daily lives.
Developing business models
Many technology leaders are already in the midst of a global race of repositioning and reinventing themselves by developing new dynamic CPS inspired business models. However, mastering the engineering of complex and trustworthy CPS faces serious challenges, which have to be addressed by the engineering methodologies of the future.
The EITEC workshop series aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from various domains relevant to CPS dedicated to mastering the challenges in engineering of CPS today and in the future. The workshop will be a venue to share results and new ideas, discuss upcoming research directions, and to catalyze a joint industry-academia platform.
Call for papers
The organizers of this workshop welcome contributions with a strong focus towards CPS that describe problem statements, trends, and emerging ideas in the engineering of CPS. The workshop defines 3 categories of submissions, targeted to address dedicated topics. See the EITEC website for more information on submission of papers.
Deadline for papers
The deadline for the submission of papers is January 31.
