Topics/Call fo Papers

Tackling the complexity involved in developing truly complex, designed systems is a topic of intense research and development. 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 several disciplines together in a consistent way. The inherent complexity of CPS is broken down into the most appropriate views and architectures, at the most appropriate levels of abstraction, and expressed in appropriate modeling formalisms, each with precisely defined semantics. Often complex, collaborative workflows are modeled explicitly too. MPM aims to provide processes and tools that can combine, couple, and integrate the many concerns that define a system.
MPM encompasses many research topics: from language engineering (for DSLs, including their (visual/textual) syntax and semantics), to processes to support multi-view and multi-abstraction modeling, simulation for full-system analysis, and deployment. The added complexity that CPS brings compared to embedded and software-intensive systems requires consideration of how MPM techniques can be applied or adapted to these new applications, tying together multiple domains. Many remaining research questions require answers from researchers in different domains, as well as a unified effort from researchers who work on supporting techniques and technologies. The community needs a workshop setting to meet up and align past and future research activities.
