wired and wireless industrial networks (fieldbus networks; Industrial Ethernet networks; wireless (industrial) networks; Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks (IWSNs); hybrid wired/wireless industrial networks; Time Sensitive Networks (TSN); Time Triggered (TT) systems and protocols);
modeling and specification techniques; hard and soft real-time message scheduling; multimedia support for industrial and process automation; real-time performance and analysis of network protocols and components; support for mobility; configuration tools and network management.
- Cyber-Physical Systems (Communication meets Control):
control/communication interaction; networked control systems; Wireless Sensor Actuator Networks (WSANs); cooperative industrial systems; multi-agent industrial systems; time synchronization; localization; industry applications and case studies.
- Networked Embedded Systems:
design and validation of embedded systems; real-time operating systems; multi/many-core systems; middleware design and implementation; real-time performance and analysis; domain-specific design and verification languages;
formal methods for verification and certification; model-driven engineering.
- Dependability and Security of Industrial Networks:
fault-tolerance; safety and certification; cyber-security; risk analysis and assessment; protection and countermeasures; industrial firewalls and intrusion detection systems (IDSs); formal description techniques and
verification of industrial protocol and applications.
- Integration in Industrial Systems:
vertical and life-cycle aspects; data-flow management; plug-and-work and self-mechanisms; interoperability; mixed criticality systems; distributed application platforms; Internet and intranet access; Internetworking; web-based setup; configuration and maintenance; cell networks; high-performance networks, telecommunication networks for geographically distributed industrial applications.
- Communication Technologies for Industry 4.0:
