** FORECAST - Functional Properties and Dependability in Cyber-Physical Systems **

** FORECAST @ HiPEAC 2022 **

This workshop is part of a three day segment in HiPEAC 2022 ( with spotlights on bridging
between contributing communities of Cyber-Physical Systems. Comprising ENHANCE, FORECAST & STEADINESS, the Segment overview is presented in the programs tab.

FORECAST encourages participation from communities representing system functional properties including Computation, Sensing, Physical Actions and Coordinated Collaboration. Product-side and market influencers, such as from product-lines and policy making,are also invited to participate.


Safety-relevant applications have been traditionally built upon the KISS (Keep it simple stupid) principle as a way to ensure the dependability of those systems and at the same time control the costs of functional and dependabiliy properties verification. However,
the traditional safety assessment approach that relies on system’s simplicity is being challenged these days by the increase in complexity and functionality requirements of new Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) applications (e.g autonomous transportation systems).

This workshop seeks innovative contributions in the area of complex safety-related systems that focus on the definition of new dependable CPS able to cope with the increased functionality demands of new applications. In particular, papers covering the following topics are welcome:

* Fault-tolerant Computing systems:
- Novel computing architectures with self-monitoring capabilities for safety and security, hardware and low-level software support for
dependability, and cost-effective protection mechanism for complex computing systems.
* Real-time Computing Systems
- Hardware support for timing isolation and timing enforcement mechanisms, performance monitoring strategies for shared resources contention
handling, performance monitoring for security and safety, quality of service support in complex processors.
- Parallel-aware off-line and online analysis tools for dependability.
* Battery operated systems and low-power computing
- Low-power and reliable computing devices, in-sensor computing, power monitoring and verification, worst-case energy consumption estimation.
* Specialized Hardware Designs
- Dynamic Vision Sensors (DVS), ultra low-power systems, near threshold voltage computing, approximate computing.
* Novel Functional Safety Certification approaches
- Methodologies and tools for certification and qualification of complex systems in the context of relevant functional safety standards
(e.g ISO 26262 or IEC 61508).
* Physical action functionality for systems, including
- Connecting physics models of system dynamics with higher level digital twin integrations for instance dependability responses.
- Actuator advances, such as connecting with AI communities for smart actuators.
