Logics and algorithms for distributed monitoring spatio-temporal properties of cyber physical systems

1 Research Project Fellow position


Temporal Logics, Formal Methods, Distributed Systems, Verification Tools


The candidate will study the temporal logics appropriate for supporting distribute monitoring of cyber physical systems and the linguistic constructs useful for specifying spatial aspects of such systems. These formal languages will be the starting point for the definition of a distributed algorithm that can be used to monitor systems consisting of a large number of agents distributed over the space, taking noise and imprecision consistently into account. The monitoring routines will be integrated into statistical verification routines for model-based design of cyber physical systems, relying also on machine learning methodologies.

Formal requirements:

Possession of a 4 or 5-year degree in a related field, suitable scientific background for carrying out research activity and experience in the field that should be described in the curriculum vitae. The candidate must be eligible for and enrolled in an Italian Ph.D. Program. An excellent knowledge of English, both written and spoken, is mandatory.

Specific requirements:

Previous experience with Logics ad Algorithms for Distributed Systems.
