We are excited and proud to announce that Prof. Dr. Hausi Müller will host a keynote at this year’s edition of RESACS!
Dr. Müller is a Computer Science Professor Associate Dean of Research in the Faculty of Engineering at University of Victoria. He is the 2016-2018 Vice President IEEE CS Technical and Conference Activities (T&C) Board and past Chair of TCSE, IEEE CS Technical Council on Software Engineering (2011-15). His research interests include software engineering, software evolution, cyber physical systems, Internet of Things, adaptive systems, and situation-aware and context-aware systems. He is co-founder of the SEAMS conference series—ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems. He co-organized Shonan Meetings on Engineering Autonomic Systems (EASy 2013) and Software Engineering for Cyber Physical Systems (SENCPS 2017) at Shonan Village, Japan. He was Program Co-Chair of WF-IoT 2018, the World Forum of Internet of Things in Singapore. He was General Chair of ICSME 2014, the 30th IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution in Victoria. He was General Chair for ICSE 2001, the 23rd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2001) in Toronto.
Keynote: Engineering Adaptive Cyber Physical Systems
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are orchestrations of computers, machines and people working together in cyber-physical environments to achieve goals using computation, communications and control (CCC) technologies. CPS have risen from the field of embedded systems to the realm of digital ecosystems and are becoming increasingly smart and intelligent due to analytics and machine learning capabilities readily available in clouds and accessible over networks. At the core, the architecture of adaptive CPS consists of hierarchical arrangements of controllers and models at runtime facilitating automatic adjustment of controllers in run time (i.e., adaptive control). The advances in the interconnected capabilities of CPS affect virtually every engineered system and will enable adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability in future CPS that will far exceed the systems of today. The engineering of high-confidence CPS is neither an extension of traditional engineering nor a straightforward application of software engineering, but rather a new systems-engineering science. There are many challenges that must be addressed to harvest CPS’s rich economic opportunities. Creating and maintaining a skilled workforce to support the design, engineering, deployment, and operation of future CPS is a significant challenge for industry, academia and governments. CPS engineers, scientists and developers not only need strong backgrounds in CPS foundations, but also significant knowledge in relevant application domains.
