3d International Workshop on
Monitoring and Testing of Cyber-Physical Systems

Porto, Portugal, USA
10 April 2018
Co-located with CPS Week

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are integrations of heterogeneous collaborative entities that interact among themselves and with their physical environment. CPS exhibit complex and unpredictable behaviors, thus making their correctness and robustness analysis a challenging task. In order to address their full complexity, there is an emergent need for formal, yet efficient and scalable methods for the verification and analysis of CPS. Light-weight verification techniques, such as monitoring and testing, achieve both rigour and efficiency by enabling the evaluation of systems according to the properties of their individual behaviours. The Monitoring and Testing of Cyber-Physical Systems (MT-CPS) workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in the problems of detecting, testing, measuring and extracting qualitative and quantitative properties from CPS behaviors. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
– Specification languages for monitoring and testing
– Runtime verification and monitoring of CPS
– Testing the integration of heterogeneous components
– Interpretation of multi-dimensional counter-examples
– Black-box and white-box testing
– Measuring and statistical information gathering
– Simulation-based verification and parameter synthesis
– Diagnostics, error localization and repair
– Combination of static and dynamic analysis
– Applications and case studies, including in medical platforms

Workshop Format
MT CPS workshop is intended to be a forum for exchanging the latest scientific trends between researchers and practitioners interested in the field of light-weight verification and analysis of CPS. As a consequence, the workshop will NOT have formal proceedings. We encourage submission of abstracts that address any of the aforementioned topics of interest and cover recently published results as well as the work in progress.
Important Dates
Abstract submission deadline: February 20
Notification: March
Early registration: TBD
Workshop: April 10, 2018
