CPS Summer School 2017

"Designing Cyber-Physical Systems – From concepts to implementation"
Multi-objective Methodologies and Tools for Self-healing and Adaptive 

Porto Conte Ricerche, Alghero (Italy)
September 25-30, 2017


Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are complex and autonomous ensembles of 
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, 
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 
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
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Market trends for CPS
- Applications of CPS, including wearable, biomedical, Industry 4.0, 
   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 
   and coarse/fine reconfiguration
- Security in adaptive and interconnected systems
