1st International Workshop on Software Architectures
for Next-generation Cyber-physical Systems
(SANCS 2015)

Dubrovnik/Cavtat, Croatia
September 7, 2015
co-located with the
9th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2015)

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) is a fast growing area because of application
domains such as automotive, healthcare, smart grids, or industrial automation.
Traditional cyber-physical systems usually consisted of one dedicated function
programmed by domain experts (e.g., electrical engineering), whose
implementation contains few thousands lines of code.

Over the last 50 years, the hardware of CPS has become much more capable
(e.g., multi-core CPUs) and new requirements have emerged such as Internet
connectivity, autonomous behavior, or user-friendly interfaces. This has led
to an enormous growth of both the volume and complexity of CPS software, which
can reach several million lines of highly interrelated code. To efficiently
maintain such a large amount of code, a proper software architecture must be
in place that supports quality attributes such as maintainability,
modifiability, or reusability.

Cyber-physical systems need software architecture at the system level as well
as at the level of individual processing nodes, thus encompassing both, for
example, solutions for adaptive collaboration and orchestration and for
efficient use of modern heterogeneous hardware platforms. CPS also face the
challenge of large amounts of legacy software that must evolve onto new
platforms with new architectures. Whereas many architectural patterns are
applicable to cyber-physical systems (e.g., component-based architecture),
some are not directly applicable, and novel patterns may be required.

The goal of the SANCS workshop is to gather researchers and practitioners in
the area of software architecture for cyber-physical systems to share opinions,
identify key challenges and propose solutions. The workshop aims at addressing
how the new trends affect the traditional architecture styles of embedded
systems, as well as the challenges introduced by the complexity of the systems
to come.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Component- and model-based CPS architectures
- Architectural decisions and decision support for CPS development
- Architectural quality attributes and architecture-level analysis of e.g.
timing or resource usage
- Virtualization of computation and communication resources
- Architecture evolution, maintenance and reengineering of CPS
- Architecture-based security measures
- Architecture documentation for CPS
- Architectural support for scalable parallel systems
- Service-oriented architecture for CPS
- Architectural Knowledge Management

- Paper submission: June 8, 2015
- Notification: June 19, 2015
- Camera-ready: June 29, 2015
