7th oCPS PhD School on Cyber-Physical Systems

12 June 2017 to 15 June 2017
Cappella Guinigi
The design of next generation of smart electricity grids, intelligent transportation, and of many other systems requires a tight coordination between computation, communication and control elements (the cyber part) on the one hand, and physical processes such as heating, cooling, motion, vibrations, etc. (the physical part) on the other hand. Despite the need for integrated design of these so-called Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), the corresponding scientific disciplines (control, computer science, etc.) have predominantly developed independently. Novel system architectures and systematic design methods are needed to realize the integrated design of the CPS of the future. Particular attention will be given to: - Discrete-event and hybrid systems techniques for CPS - Resource-aware control - Formal methods for embedded control - Security in control of CPS - Model predictive control - Approximate dynamic programming - Machine learning and reinforcement learning - Fault-tolerant control of distributed CPS - Multi-agent systems - Industrial perspectives on CPS List of speakers: Prof. Alf Isaksson, ABB Corporate Research Prof. Christos Cassandras, Boston University, USA Prof. Joost-Pieter Katoen, RWTH Aachen University, Germany Prof. Samarjit Chakraborty , TU Munich, Germany Prof. Maurice Heemels, Eindhoven University of Technology, NL Prof. Henrik Sandberg, KTH Stockholm, Sweden Prof. Gerhard Neumann, University of Lincoln, UK Prof. Alberto Bemporad, IMT Lucca, Italy Prof. Dimitri Bertsekas, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA Prof. Magnus Egerstedt , Georgia Tech, USA Prof. Marios Polycarpou , University of Cyprus, Cyprus Please see the link below for the full program.
