CPS Summer School

About the CPS Summer School

Cyber physical systems, composed of physical systems (hardware/mechanics), software systems and potentially other types of systems (e.g., human systems), are increasingly prevalent in society. CPSs have the potential to bring about significant social benefits, however bring a number of engineering challenges.
The CPS summer school is targeted at research scientists and students, and R&D experts from industry, who want to learn about advances in CPS engineering.

A program of briefings, tutorials and hands-on sessions will be delivered by industry experts and leading researchers in CPS from the INTO-CPS, CPSE Labs, AMASS EU projects and the MPM4CPS EU COST Action. Participants will have the opportunity to tailor their attendance of lectures and tutorials to their own interest.

Participation options

  • 1 day: high-level understanding of CPS technologies and modelling approaches.
  • 3 days: learn about CPSs at a high-level and attend a collection of tutorials for more in depth knowledge on selected methods and technologies.
  • 5 days: The overview and tutorials, plus participants have hands on with various CPS

Day 1
Day 1 focuses on the industrial application of multidisciplinary, collaborative model-based CPS engineering, with many opportunities for networking.

Days 2–3

Expert speakers from EU project consortia provide insights into state of the art modelling and analysis techniques for cross-disciplinary CPS engineering.

Days 4–5

The week finishes with practical training, giving an opportunity to use new tools and methods for modelling and analysing CPSs, including many of the technologies introduced in the tutorials. We will have a number of cases available that you can use for the practical training, but you can also bring your own case and get expert help on that.

Location and accommodation

The CPS Summer School will take place at the “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu in Romania in the Library of the university.

ULBS - University Library
2A Lucian Blaga St.
Sibiu, Romania

Sibiu International Airport is in close proximity with links to several European airports, including Munich, Milan and London.

Accommodation is available for participants at a reasonable cost. You will receive more information about this when you have registered.
