I’m honored to serve on the Program Committee of the 5th International Workshop on Multi-Paradigm Modelling for Cyber-Physical Systems (MPM4CPS), co-located with the ACM/IEEE 26th International Conference on Model-Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS), 2023.
System complexity has drastically increased once software components were introduced in the form of embedded systems, controlling physical parts of the system, and has only grown in CPS, where the networking aspect of the systems and their environment are also considered. The complexity faced when engineering CPS is mostly due to the plethora of cross-disciplinary design alternatives and inter-domain interactions. To date, no unifying theory nor system design methods, techniques, or tools to design, analyze, and ultimately deploy CPS exist. Individual (physical systems, software, network) engineering disciplines offer only partial solutions and are no match for CPS complexity. Multi-Paradigm Modeling (MPM) offers a foundational framework for gluing the several disciplines together in a consistent way. The inherent complexity of CPS is broken down into most appropriate views and architectures, at most appropriate levels of abstraction and expressed in appropriate modeling formalisms, each with precisely defined semantics.
MPM4CPS is the continuation of the successful MPM series of MODELS workshops aiming at defining the future directions of this emerging research area by bringing together world experts for an intense one-day workshop.
1-3 October, 2023
Co-located with this year’s MODELS Conference.
