EMC² recognizes that Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are the key innovation driver to improve almost all mechatronic products with cheaper and even new functionalities. Furthermore, they strongly support today's information society as inter-system communication enabler. Consequently boundaries of application domains are alleviated and ad-hoc connections and interoperability play an increasing role. At the same time, multi-core and many-core computing platforms are becoming available on the market and provide a breakthrough for system (and application) integration. A major industrial challenge arises facing (cost) efficient integration of different applications with different levels of safety and security on interconnected computing platforms in an open context.
After about 1 year of project lifetime, EMC² has already started producing tangible results. As such, it is time that EMC² project partners can bring their research results to the forefront of the international scientific community, exchange ideas with external audience and benefit from constructive discussions.
In this context, EMC² will be hosting a Special Session (SS) in the context of the forthcoming IEEE conference on Industrial Informatics (INDIN 2015), to be held on July 22 to 24, at Cambridge, UK.
The special session will be on “Embedded Multi-Core Systems for Mixed Criticality Applications in Dynamic and Changeable Real-Time Environments” and it is co-organized by Dr. George Dimitrakopoulos (Asst. prof. Harokopio University of Athens, Greece), Dipl.-Ing. Erwin Schoitsch (Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH, Austria) and EMC² project coordinator Dr. Werner Weber (Infineon Technologies AG, Germany).
The session will include a high number of original research papers, emphasizing on project results, from joint efforts among industry and academia players, not only from project partners, but also from external participants. The topics that the papers will focus on, revolve around the following areas:
IEEE INDIN constitutes a series of high prestige conferences, usually gaining attendance of high profile key industrial and research players. As such, it will be a great opportunity for enhancing extroversion actions for the project partners, who can disseminate their results to a large and demanding audience. Moreover, the event, will prepare partners for future research articles work that will further communicate the project’s results in prestigious journals. Last, the discussions that will take place during the event are expected to pave the way for future research and commercial initiatives in the field of industrial informatics.
