EMC² Summit Final Programme

Motivation and Theme:

EMC² – “Embedded Multi-Core systems for Mixed Criticality applications in dynamic and changeable real-time environments” is an ARTEMIS/ECSEL Joint Undertaking project in the ARTEMIS Innovation Pilot Programme “Computing platforms for embedded systems” (AIPP5). EMC² is a project of 100 partners of embedded industry and research from 19 European countries with an effort of about 800 person years and a total budget of more than 90 million Euro, which started April 1, 2014 and will finish 2017. For details, see .

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are the key innovation driver to improve almost all mechatronic products with cheaper and 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. We have to find solutions for dynamic adaptability in open systems, provides handling of mixed criticality applications under real-time conditions, scalability and utmost flexibility, full scale deployment and management of integrated tool chains, through the entire lifecycle.

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, changing considerably the preconditions for dependable, safe and secure systems with respect to predictability. A major industrial challenge arises from the need to face cost efficient integration of different applications with different levels of safety and security (mixed criticality) on a single computing platform in an open context.

Scope of the event

EMC² will present work in progress and important intermediate results of the ongoing project (2014 – 2017) and invites researchers and industry to contribute from their ongoing work in the areas addressed and of related projects.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1.     Architectures and platforms for embedded (cyber-physical) systems
2.     Application Models and Design Tools for Mixed-Critical, Multi-Core CPS
3.     Dynamic runtime environments and services
4.     Multi-core hardware architectures and concepts
5.     System design platform, tools, models and interoperability
6.     Applications of multi-core cyber-physical systems: avionics, automotive, space, cross-domain and other applications
7.     Safety and security co-engineering in open dynamic CPS
8.     Next generation embedded/cyber-physical systems
9.     Standardization, qualification and certification issues of complex critical CPS

Submission procedure, deadlines, and author instructions

The papers will be reviewed by at least three reviewers and be published as ERCIM Workshop Proceedings in an open archive (e.g. Open Access repository HAL, A manuscript submitted to the EMC² Summit  of CPS-Week 2016 must be in the IEEE double column format with single space 10p fonts and figures included in the text, so the length of the manuscript of 6 - 8 pages long in PDF format can be evaluated.  For your convenience you may download the WORD template.doc (A4) from the IEEE website:

There is a second chance to present a poster (A0 or A1) with a short paper (2-3 pages) which will be published as well.

The EMC² Summit is scientifically co-sponsored by the ERCIM Dependable Embedded Software-intensive Systems Working Group and EWICS TC7 (European Workshop on Industrial Computer Systems, TC7, Safety, Reliability and Security), and co-hosted by the ARTEMIS projects ARROWHEAD, CRYSTAL and the standardization Innovation Action CP-SETIS.

Please send papers to the IPC chairperson Erwin.schoitschait.acat.
