This year’s edition of the Workshop on Modelling in Software Engineering (MiSE’2016), co-located with ICSE 2016 hosts a panel on “MiSE in the era of cyber-physical systems: opportunities and challenges”.
Clearly, cyber-physical systems (CPSs) are a hot topic right now, at least in terms of funding opportunities (quite a few calls in H2020 target them) but what are CPSs exactly?, what are the challenges they pose to us (modelers/architects/developers/…)? and what new research developments are needed to improve the generation and evolution of CPSs given their multiple levels of complexity?

These are some of the questions we’ll try to answer during the panel. Don’t worry, I’ll be just moderating it, we will have real expert panelists giving their knowledgeable advice: Sebastián Uchitel, Nenad Medvidović, Bernhard Rumpe and Pamela Zave. If you have questions or comments feel free to tweet them (starting right now, up to live tweeting during the panel session) using the hashtag #mise16panel and I’ll gather them.
After the panel I’ll update this post with a summary of the discussions. In the meantime you can also take a first look at the two papers I’ll be presenting at Mise itself:
