CPS week, the top event on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) bringing together four leading conferences, three summits, six tutorials, twenty one workshops, and various exhibitions from both industry and academia was held in Vienna, in April. The four conferences are the International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN’16), the International Conference on Hybrid Systems (HSCC’16), the International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS’16), and the Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium (RTAS’16).
CISTER researcher Eduardo Tovar was Program Co-chair of the 7th ACM/IEEE ICCPS, which is the leading single-track conference for reporting advances in all aspects of cyber-physical systems. ICCPS 2016 was the conference receiving the highest number of participants (around 150) out of all 4 conferences co-located in the CPSWeek, and offered a very exciting technical programme on cutting edge advances in CPS research and technology being performed by the top research groups in the world. Notably, many of the research works presented at ICCPS were receiving a huge attraction from the international media, including the Newsweek Magazine.
Researchers from CISTER participated as the workshop chair in RTAS’16, and also served as members of the technical program committee of RTAS'16 and member of the jury for the best presentation award of RTAS'16. RTAS is one of the top-impact Real-Time conferences, with a steady involvement of numerous CISTER researchers over the years in various roles. In particular, Vincent Nélis served as RTAS’16 WiP chair, and Benny Åkesson and Borislav Nikolić served as members of the WiP Program Committee. Two CISTER PhD graduates, Dakshina Dasari (now with Bosch, India) and Gurulingesh Raravi (now with Xerox, India) also served on this board.
During the RTAS'16 Demo session, CISTER introduced a new run-time monitoring technology developed within the CONCERTO project, and posters introducing some work in progress innovative and original ideas were also presented.
