Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are an emerging topic worldwide encompassing the next generation of engineered systems. They are the major enabler for smart wearable devices, smart homes, smart cities, Factory of the Future, E-Health and overall the Industry 4.0.
Cyber-Physical Systems are intended to connect the physical world by sensing the environment to the virtual world of data analysis and processing. The summer school will focus on inter-disciplinary subjects covering the development of CPS.
It will address the main areas of CPS:
communication and networking,
energy harvesting and energy management
All topics will be addressed through lecturers and practical demonstrations, given by internationally recognized researchers. Use cases will be presented by researchers and industry experts.
A dedicated session supported by Intel will be dedicated to the state-of art techniques in Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).
A CPS demo afternoon is organized as well as an industry exhibition (Thursday afternoon).
Targeted participants are Ph.D. and Master students, engineers and researchers worldwide. The attendees have the opportunity (not compulsory) to present their research work during the “CPS in Action” session (5 min pitch demo or video). The Ph.D. students can also present a poster of their work. Awards for Ph.D posters and CPS in action will be given at the end of the school.
Two social events will be organized to network with the fellows in the CPS field and enjoy the wonderful “cuisine” of the south-west of France.
For European PhD students, a one week course may be eligible for 2 ECTS credits, provided by the university and/or PhD advisor.
