Call for papers

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) represent a fastgrowing area in several domains, such as automotive, healthcare, aerospace, industrial control and automation. Due to the ever-growing need of increased processing power, the hardware of CPS has become much more powerful (e.g., multi- and many- core CPUs) and several new requirements have arisen. A consequence of this is a remarkable increment of the complexity that characterizes CPS software. To efficiently manage such a complexity, novel development mechanisms, more powerful than dated code-centric approaches and able to abstract the problem as well as automate development phases, are needed.

Among the new trends that focus on managing software complexity through abstraction and automation, Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) has gained major recognition. MDE focuses on the introduction of modelling as abstraction of the actual problem and the ability to express domain specific concepts in a way that is at the same time precise, usable, and machine-processable, thus allowing automated manipulation through transformations. The goal of this track is to provide a discussion forum where researchers and practitioners on model-driven and model-based development for CPS can meet, disseminate and exchange ideas and challenges, identify key issues and explore possible solutions.

We encourage submissions of research papers, experience reports and position papers, from academia and industry.

Suggested areas of interest include, but are not restricted to:

> Domain-specific languages by means of metamodels
> Model-based analysis, testing, validation and verification
> Model transformation and reengineering
> Model (co)evolution and maintenance
> Quality of (meta)models and transformations
> Models at runtime
> Tool support for model-based and/or model-driven development
> Model-based verification, testing and checking of CPS
> Model-based measurement, prediction and monitoring of CPS
> Integrated tool chains and methods for modelling and deployment of CPS
> Reverse engineering, modelling, and componentization of legacy CPS code
> Case studies and experience reports

Authors should submit a 6-page version of original and unpublished work including 5 keywords in the Conference Publishing Services-CPS format All accepted submissions will be published in the conference proceedings by the CPS. If accepted, one of the authors must attend the ITNG conference and present the work in person.

Special Issue at Journal of Object Technology (JOT)

The best papers from the track will be invited for being submitted in extended form to a special issue of JOT. The extended papers will undergo a new peer-reviewing process.
