The Summer School on Cyber Physical Systems - June 10th - 14th in Stockholm

Theme - Trustworthy Highly Autonomous CPS

You are invited to an intensive week, arranged by KTH and Halmstad University covering the latest CPS insights and knowledge. We have gathered the most prominent leaders in the field to make this week one of its kind. These, hopefully warm and sunny, days will leave you with a deep understanding of the complexity of Autonomous CPS solution and how different areas intertwine with each other.

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) integrate computation, networking and physical processes to provide products and services that are autonomous, intelligent, connected and collaborative. Technology advances is now paving the way for a new era of Cyber-Physical Systems of Systems (CPSoS) that will have unprecedented capabilities but also unprecedented corresponding technological complexity – representing an ongoing technological shift with corresponding socio-technical implications.

The Theme
This CPS Summer School thematically focuses specifically on trustworthy highly autonomous CPS and brings together multiple perspectives to this theme. These perspectives encompass theoretical foundations, engineering challenges and socio-technical considerations - all of which represent areas where new ground needs to be broken. By trustworthiness we refer to a number of properties that we generally would like to see exhibited by a system for us to trust it. In the context of this course, we mainly refer to safety (”do not harm people”) and security (”do not allow hackers to violate the system”) - and more generally, understanding the correponding risks since future CPS will neither be absolutely safe nor secure. Also, other related (or derived) properties will be touched upon including availability, reliability, resilience, robustness, predictability, and privacy.

More information can be found here.

The Schedule
The integrative thread throughout the Summer School is provided by industrial examples – case studies – that will be provided the first day, and through the theme of trustworthy autonomous CPS.

The red thread will be maintained by daily reflections, discussion sessions and exercises – to revisit the topics treated, bring up open problems and questions – promoting dialogue and learning. Invited speakers and additional experts will be joining these sessions to take part in the discussions and provide further insight into ongoing research and state of the art. The schedule is consequently designed to provide for significant opportunities for interaction between the participants and the speakers.

The summer school takes place from June 10-14th, 2019 in Stockholm, hosted by KTH – the Royal Institute of Technology in cooperation with Halmstad University. The Summer School is intended for professionals from industry (engineers, researchers, and managers) and academics (including doctoral students). While the school is broadly open, an engineering background or corresponding experience is highly recommended to be able to appreciate the topics treated.

All participants will get a certificate that the course is equivalent to 2.0 ECTS. KTH-reg students: can add a homework module and then get 4,0 ECTS (link to course code)
