CPSE-Labs, SysML France and the GDR GPL co-hosted a one-day workshop on software and system engineering for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) in January 2016. This workshop was offered as a Satellite Event of the Embedded Real Time Software And Systems (ERTS) Congress 2016. Presenters' slides from the event are available on this page.
CPSs are systems that link the physical world (e.g., through sensors or actuators) with the virtual world of information processing. They are composed from diverse constituent parts that collaborate together to create some global behaviour. These constituents will include software systems, communications technology, and sensors/actuators that interact with the real world, often including embedded technologies.
