CPS-Ed 2014! Cyber-Physical Systems Education Workshop at UC Berkeley
Sharing experiences on CPS education and curricula, to shape the CPS education of tomorrow.
Time: Tue 2014-11-04 09.00
Location: University of California, Berkeley Campus (Room 380, Soda Hall)
The increasing capabilities of computing systems - including their connectivity - paves the way for novel applications and systems that do not respect traditional academic disciplines. What used to be easy to define, e.g. embedded systems as dedicated and small computer control and measurement systems, now encompasses a spectrum from low (bare bone), over multicore, to high end middleware, web and cloud connected systems. Future computer and software intensive systems will increasingly contain environment models, be situation aware, perform decision making, gradually contributing to increasing levels of autonomy. This technology evolution, captured by terms like CPS, IoT and the Swarm, makes education challenging, to say the least.
What competences should a future CPS engineer be equipped with?
The workshop gathers leading educational developers and industrial representatives to discuss challenges and ways forward. The workshop also builds upon momentum and debate on this topic, including the 10th WESE workshop on embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems education at ESWEEK2014 ( www.emsig.net/conf/2014/wese/ ) and the First Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Education (CPS-Ed 2013) at CPSWeek2013 ( cps-vo.org/group/edu/workshop )
