Andrea's webinar at INCOSE PDF Print E-mail

On September 25th Andrea held a webinar of the INCOSE webinar series, on the work developed within the AMADEOS project. The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is a not-for-profit membership organization founded to develop and disseminate the interdisciplinary principles and practices that enable the realization of successful systems.

The title and abstract of the talk are as follows. The slides presented during the webinar are available here.

Architecture for Multi-­‐criticality Agile Dependable Evolutionary Open System-­‐of-­‐Systems (AMADEOS)
The AMADEOS project goal is to bring time awareness and evolution into the design of Cyber Physical System-­‐of-­‐Systems (CPSoS), to establish a sound conceptual model, a generic architectural framework and a design methodology, supported by some prototype tools, for the modeling, development and evolution of time-­‐sensitive CPSoS with possible emergent behaviors. This seminar will discuss some basic challenges taken by the Project and some advances in three directions. i) Time Management: the design and prototyping of a resilient master clock to provide a sound global time base to the CPSoS. ii) Management of the Physical interactions of the CPSoS: definitions of physical interfaces and interaction of stigmergic channels with usual cyber message flows. iii) AMADEOS conceptual model of CPSoS with associated SySML profile supporting the design of a CPSoS considering different system's view-­‐points, namely structure, dynamicity, evolution, dependability and security, time, emergence and multi-­‐criticality.

RCL in Brazil PDF Print E-mail

A rendezvous of RCL researchers has recently happened in Brasil!

Enrico, Leonardo and Tommaso arrived in Campinas in the beginning of May, for a three-months secondment as part of the DEVASSES project. Enrico and Leonardo are spending three months at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP) to collaborate with local researchers; Tommaso after a short period in Campinas is now continuing his research at the Universidade Federal de Alagoas (UFAL) in Maceió.

Then, the RCL group has been reinforced by Andrea B. and Andrea C., which spent a short but busy period in Brasil as well. Besides attending the DSN'15 conference and the RADIANCE workshop in Rio, they were in Campinas for the 4th DEVASSES ToK Workhsop, and spent additional time there in which they had seminars and discussions with the local UNICAMP team.

We are now looking forward to host UNICAMP and UFAL researchers in Firenze!

Brazilians researchers in Firenze! PDF Print E-mail

Starting from mid January, a group of researchers from Brazil have arrived in Firenze to fulfill their secondments for the DEVASSES project. An intense period of collaboration is starting: currently a total of five researchers are visting the Resilient Computing Lab. Seminars were organized in different days, to have the initial presentations of the starting secondments, and further discussions on collaboration topics.

Cecilia Rubira and Ariadne Carvalho are professors at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP), in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil. They arrived in the middle of January and are staying in Firenze for one month. Felipe Gaia and Sheila Venero are PhD students at UNICAMP, and they will stay for two and three months, respectively. Baldoino Neto is a professor at the Universidade Federal de Alagoas (UFAL), in Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil. Baldoino is also staying one month, to then pass the token to his student Marcus Piancó, which is arriving in the middle of February for a six-months secondment.

The four recently approved EU projects on Systems of Systems interact in various ways. Representatives of the projects AMADEOS, Local4Global and DYMASOS contribute to the three Working Groups set up by the CPSoS Support Action. Mutual participation in workshops and events as well as specific cluster meetings are planned. Further interactions will be organised around synthesis reports and strategic policy documents.

Last but not least, the first issue of the Newsletter of the Cluster of EU FP7 Projects on SoS is available here. Also, do not forget to subscrive to the mailing list here, in order to receive the upcoming issues!
