Overview

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.

Speakers

ALESSANDRO ABATE

 

Title of presentation:
1.Data-driven and model-based quantitative verification of cyber-physical systems, Slides – Part I, Video: YouTube

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.

RAMIN TAVAKOLI KOLAGARI

 

Title of Presentation:
Functional Architecture for Autonomous Driving, Slides

Ramin Tavakoli Kolagari is a Professor of Software Engineering at Nuremberg Institute of Technology, since 2011. Professor Ramin Tavakoli’s specialties are Architecture Description Languages, AUTOSAR, EAST-ADL, Model-based Software Development, Requirements Engineering, Software Product Line Engineering and Software Reuse.

The summer school was a great event: fantastically organized with fascinating lectures and a distinguished audience involving the speakers in exciting discussions during the talks as well as during the breaks. In the light of the school, interesting insights at the edge of various fields of research were gained in the area of cyber-physical systems. I would love to see this event continue and reach international visibility not only in the context of teaching but also in the context of an international research cooperation.
