Software Language Engineering for Cyber-physical Systems

One-day workshop (06 Oct, 2011) at INFORMATIK 2011 in Berlin, 04 Oct — 07 Oct, 2011.



Cyber-physical systems (CPS) combine computational and physical elements in interesting ways that require and challenge adaptability, autonomy, efficiency, reliability, safety, and usability. Software Language Engineering (SLE) provides an important discipline to address the aforementioned CPS requirements and challenges. For instance, SLE subsumes concepts and techniques on domain-specific languages (DSL)—-their analysis, design, implementation, and deployment. Also, SLE offers a language-based approach to less programming-centric problems such as variability and configuration thereof, or constraint specification (for safety or otherwise).

WS4C 2011 aims at interaction between researchers and practioners interested in SLE (as means to address the above-mentioned requirements or challenges) and application areas of CPS (e.g., robotics for search and rescue, or collision avoidance in autonomous driving). WS4C 2011 invites participation both from academia and industry with a stake in CPS. The programme committee of WS4C 2011 covers a number of CPS application areas readily but submissions with preference for any area (such as automative, aerospace, chemical processes, civil infrastructure) are welcome. Experience reports from CPS stake holders are particularly welcome if they identify the potential of possibly adapted SLE methods or software engineering methods more generally. Submissions with more focus on general software engineering and programming language concepts should aim to demonstrate their benefit for CPS.

Please have a look at the additional information regarding the concept of WS4C 2011.

WS4C 2011 is supported by the ADAPT research focus at the University of Koblenz-Landau as part of Rhineland Palatinate's Research Initiative 2008—2011.
