Call For Papers

*** Self-Awareness in Cyber-Physical Systems (SelPhyS) ***
** Last Call! Updated deadline for submissions! **
4th Edition, Technical University of Munich, Germany, 15-16th of April 2019
Organizers: A.Herkersdorf (Chair), N.Dutt, L.Esterle, A.Jantsch, P.Lewis, A.Sadighi, N.TaheriNejad, K.Tammemäe, T.Wild

* The concept of self-awareness has become a hot research topic in a variety
of disciplines such as robotics, artificial intelligence, control theory,
networked systems, and so on. Its applicability has been explored in various
application domains such as automotive, military, consumer electronics,
industrial control, medical equipment, and so forth. The topic owes its
attractiveness to many examples in insects, animals and humans, where
self-awareness is attributed to facilitate highly resilient and outstandingly
efficient behaviors. Thus, self-awareness holds the promise to promote
dependability in all types of smart gadgets and artificial agents in the
interconnected world of future.
* The main purpose of this workshop is to build a community and to try to
develop a shared and communal understanding of the main concepts underlying
self-awareness with respect to CPS. Currently, self-awareness is studied in a
range of different communities, where the underlying assumptions, definitions
and goals differ significantly. This workshop will provide a forum for
reflections and in-depth discussions of the pivotal concepts of this field
which will serve as a basis for building an integrated scientific community
and for developing future research projects.
* In addition to invited keynote speech and participants’ talks, we will
study and scrutinize specific systems and underlying concept of observation and
it role in self-awareness and its respective properties in hands-on exercises
and group discussions. Some procedures will be proposed, based on which workshop
participants will work on identification of various observation methods and its
effect on awareness in systems (described in the literature or proposed by
participants). This exercise will serve as a platform for analyzing the
principles and basic concepts of self-awareness, specifically observation
and its role in the self-awareness of the systems under study as well as
other systems. By engagement of the community in this hands-on joint practice we
hope to generate new ideas for future research directions and foster new and
stronger collaborations.

We seek previously published or unpublished contributions for oral and/or
poster presentations on research relevant to self-awareness in cyber-physical
systems on, but not limited to, the following topics and application areas

- Self-Awareness in resource constrained distributed systems
- Self-awareness in HW, Operating System, and applications
- Self-awareness facilitating autonomous, adaptive or resilient behavior
- Demonstration of self-awareness
- Architectures
- Design methods
- Systems with other Self-* properties

- Sensor Networks
- Internet of Things
- Automotive
- Robotics
- Health Monitoring
- Industrial Automation
- Autonomous Vehicles
- System-on-Chip

The workshop submissions (*one page extended abstract, PDF format only*) has
to be sent to workshop organizers (contact below). Organizers will sort the
abstracts according to their relevance and expected impact to the workshop
outcome. The number of presentation time-slots is limited.
Authors of accepted submissions will be informed about decision and proposed
presentation format before CPS WEEK early registration deadline.

Authors of accepted submissions will have opportunity to make their work
public at the workshop website, but there will be no obligation to do so.

*** Deadline for extended abstracts: 1 March 2019 ***
*** Decision of selection: 15 March 2019 ***
*** Event Date: 15-16 April 2019 ***

*** Submit to: Axel Jantsch: ***
