Call For Papers

Software is playing an increasingly important role in assuring effective and efficient operation of industrial automation engineering systems. However software engineering methods applied in this field lag behind the conventional software engineering methods, where tremendous progress has been made in the last years. These state-of-the-art software engineering techniques and tools need to be interpreted, adapted, and extended to meet the special requirements and particularities prevalent in the automation domain.
The aim of this session is to present new approaches and methods for the design of software for use in factory and energy automation which follows the latest trends from the software engineering domain. Additionally, the session will address the challenges in adopting state-of-the-art software engineering tools and techniques to the automation domain and discuss various approaches to tackle the issues.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Software engineering methods for automation, control and SCADA systems
- Component-based design of automation and control systems
- Programming languages and tools for automation systems
- Visual programming
- Model-driven design of automation and control systems
- Test-driven software quality assurance of automation and control systems
- Quality assurance methods: testing, simulation, formal verification, defect analysis
- Execution semantics of automation software
- Latest developments of standards (e.g., IEC 61131-3, IEC 61499, IEC 61850, etc.)
- Metrics of success in software development in automation
- Program analysis techniques for industrial applications (e.g., Dynamic analysis, Static analysis, Impact analysis)
- Tools and techniques for automated testing of IEC61131-3 language programs
- Testing frameworks for automation systems (test beds for unit testing, integration testing, regression testing, etc.)

Papers can be submitted on the INDIN 2016 paper submission website. Papers must conform to the conference formatting guidelines.
