Nowadays, simulative approaches are mandatory to analyze, design, evaluate, and to
prepare real test-runs during the development of these CPS. They enable risk-less and
resource-efficient experiments to validate system functions and product families. For example, complex simulations of sensors and the environment are required during the development and validation of self-driving vehicles to safely test the sensor data fusion and algorithms for situation-adaptive driving decisions. The models, which are utilized in these simulations, are continuously improved and enable in the foreseeable future complex analyses of the simulated system, its behavior, and its context. However, simulation experts to design, realize, and maintain these interconnected simulations as well as the simulation environments are limited factors during the development. Thus, methods, metrics, and tools for the engineering of these complex simulation systems are required to effectively design and evaluate these CPS also in the future.
Call for papers
We invite submissions according to the following potential topics for the workshop ES4CPS, which are not limited to:
We are looking for submission of full research papers and experiences reports (up to 8 pages) and work in progress submissions (up to 4 pages) formatted according to ACM style. All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. At least two reviews for each paper will be conducted. All workshop papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format through the EasyChair website http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=es4cps
All accepted papers for the workshop will be published in the workshop proceedings and listed in the ACM Digital Library.
More information are available on the workshop homepage (see URL at the top of this page).
