DeCPS 2019 - Workshop on Challenges and new Approaches for Dependable
and Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering

14 June 2019, Warsaw, Poland

Co-located with the Ada-Europe
24th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies

--- Scope ---

In recent years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has experienced an
extraordinary development with a broad impact on society; however,
there is still a gap between the physical world and the cyber one.
Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) constitute a new class of engineered
systems, integrating software control and autonomous decision making
with signals from an uncertain and dynamic environment.  Internet
transformed the way people interact and deal with information.
CPS technology transformed the way people interact with engineered
systems.  For this type of systems, it is necessary not only ensuring
the safety of physical devices but also other factors such as
information about customers, suppliers, and organizational strategies
needs to be secured.  In the context of cyber systems, the Artificial
Intelligence (AI) technologies can contribute to manage a huge amount
of heterogeneous data that come from different sources without human
intervention.  To deliver certification, standards for machine safety
are highly recommended as they give confidence to the regulatory.
The generic standard for safety-related hardware and software might
be applicable, however, due to increasing autonomy of robots there
is still a potential for evolution of such regulations or standards.
The proper combination of AI, CPS and IoT is therefore fundamental.

CPS are considered a disruptive technology which will transform the
traditional manufacturing into Industry 4.0 solutions, and are used
in a very wide spectrum of applications: smart mobility, autonomous
driving, digital healthcare, smart grids and buildings, mobile
co-operating autonomous robotic systems, digital consumer products
and services.  "In conclusion, the emerging Digital (R)-evolution
relies heavily on Embedded Intelligent Systems technologies in domains
where it is paramount that Europe takes leadership role" (Laila Gide,
"The pathway to digital transformation: an opportunity for Europe",
ARTEMIS Magazine 20 May 2016).

This workshop aims to provide a platform to industrial practitioners,
researchers and engineers in academia to exchange of their ideas,
research results, experiences in the field of dependable and cyber
physical systems engineering, both a theoretical and practical
perspective.  To foster visibility and interaction, participation
in the workshop will be also open to conference participants (at no
extra cost).
