January 19 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm
This workshop is part of a three day segment in HiPEAC 2024 with a spotlight on bridging between contributing communities to future large-scale safety-critical systems (also known as CPS). Comprising FORECAST, STEADINESS & ENHANCE, the Segment overview is described above in the ‘Programs’ tab.
ENHANCE encourages participation from enabling technology communities including IoT, AI and Big Data. Product-side and market influencers, such as from product-lines and policy making, are also invited to participate.
Workshop Focus & Topics of Interest
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) have been adopted in many industrial sectors thanks to development of several new enabling technologies both on software and hardware side. Examples of topics that play a key role in advancing CPS are: Artificial Intelligence, model-driven software engineering, formal modeling and verification, wireless communication, novel embedded and Edge controllers. These technologies are evolving at a fast pace. At the same time, dependability is a “must have” requirement for the entire CPS life cycle. However, as CPS become more prominent across the globe and increasingly depend on the interplay between the Edge and the Cloud, building trustworthy CPS and managing the complexity of their hierarchies of systems is probably more challenging than ever before.
The workshop seeks submissions for presentations describing practical and theoretical approaches and solutions to advance the design and implementation of trustworthy CPS spanning the Cloud-Edge-IoT continuum or parts thereof. In particular, presentations covering the following topics (but not limited to) are welcome:
- IoT, IIoT and dependability: IoT systems are a class of systems that use the Internet as the backbone technology.
- In this topic, presentations related to bridging best of security research and IoT and IIoT are encouraged, Ex: Authentication and Authorization in IoT.
- The Time-Sensitive Networking task group of the IEEE 802.1 working group is adding new capabilities, especially bridging wired and wireless devices. Presentations related to this topic and its impact on dependability are encouraged.
- Software Engineering methods for dependable CPS: the amount of software in CPS is growing and the key factor defining its functionality.
- In this topic, presentations related to reducing the software engineering effort while at the same time ensuring quality for dependable CPS are encouraged.
- However, treating the software in isolation would be short sighted. Therefore model driven approaches addressing cross domain concerns of CPS are as well encouraged.
- Artificial Intelligence and dependability: AI and CPS now go hand in hand. One cannot exist without the other.
- In this topic, presentations related to explainability and dependability analysis of AI and ML-based algorithms in the area of CPS will be considered.
- Another topic of special interest is distributed/swarm intelligence. Flexibility requirements have become key to CPS in Industry 4.0 context and presentations related to learning the behavior and adapting to flexible factories, based on ML based agents are encouraged.
- System of Systems: SoS are now considered a fundamental building block of CPS for advancing future safety-critical systems.
- Topics helping bridge the SoS community to other contributing communities are encouraged. Including cross-disciplinary focuses such as safety-security-performance integrations.
- Big Data and dependability: Data is now available in abundance, for example traces of system operation at all times.
- Topics related to use of big data to construct models for use in dependability analysis are encouraged. Process mining is one such example, which can be used to link model-based process analysis and data-oriented analysis techniques.
