2nd International Workshop on Software Engineering for Smart Cyber-Physical Systems


Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are “engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computational and physical components”. With the proliferation of smart embedded and mobile devices, CPS are becoming large-scale pervasive systems, which combine various data sources to control real-world ecosystems (e.g., intelligent traffic control). Modern CPS have to deal effectively with environment dynamicity, control their emergent behavior, scalable and tolerant to threats, hence CPS have to be smart (sCPS). sCPS feature a number of specifics that render traditional software engineering approaches not directly applicable. This calls for innovative approaches that jointly reflect and address the specifics of such systems.
