CISTER participates in the Portuguese Agenda for Science and Innovation in Cyber-Physical Systems

5, Jul, 2017

In the scope of the Portuguese Government resolution “Commitment to Knowledge and Science: Commitment to the Future", the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), the national agency for research, technology and innovation, is promoting the elaboration of a set of research and innovation thematic agendas. These agendas aim to mobilize the national actors, contributing to identify challenges and opportunities and foster the articulation between different actors of the Portuguese research and innovation system in a long-term perspective. In addition to identifying the country's strengths in each theme, the agendas will allow the identification of areas that are considered as emerging and promising for the Portuguese research and innovation community.
One of the 14 agendas deals with “Cyber-Physical Systems and Advanced Forms of Computation and Communication”, being developed by a number of researchers and innovators from academia and industry, and counts with the participation of CISTER researchers Luis Miguel Pinho and Eduardo Tovar. The topics included in this agenda range from embedded computing systems to cloud computing, from platforms and infrastructures to smart applications, and from dependability and real-time properties to methodologies and tools for designing these systems.
An overview of the challenges and research topics of the agenda was presented last July 5th, at “Ciência 2017”, the annual meeting of the Portuguese science and technology community, in a session with the participation of CISTER researcher Luis Miguel Pinho.
