    Model-based design and analysis of cyber-physical systems
           SPES_XT Summer School at AVoCS'14
                 Twente, The Netherlands
                    Sept. 17-23, 2014

Today's challenges in the development of embedded and cyber-physical
systems are mainly caused by the ever-increasing complexity of the
software. Model-based design and analysis has a high potential to
overcome these challenges. SPES_XT (Software Platform Embedded
Systems) is a large German endeavour to build a consistent, coherent
model-based design methodology for complex embedded and cyber-physical
systems. The aim of AVoCS (International Workshop on Automated
Verification of Critical Systems) is to further research on tools and
techniques for the verification of critical systems. The SPES_XT
Summer School at AVoCS'14 will present results and experiences from
the SPES_XT project, as well as research approaches established at
AVoCS. It will provide a concise introduction to the state-of-the-art,
as well as new approaches and research questions. Attendants will gain
an intimate understanding of a consistent system development process
for complex embedded and cyber-physical systems over different
application domains (e.g. automation, automotive, avionic, rail).

The school addresses young researchers as well as young professionals
from industry. It will be held immediately prior to AVoCS 2014.

  Participants at the SPES_XT Summer School 2014 have to register at
  the AVoCS'14 registration page:



    27th of May 2014

    regular participants: 900 Euros
    students: 680 Euros

    The fees cover lectures, materials, refreshments, lunch, and the
    social event on Sunday September 21st.

    For a limited number of students, grants will be available
    covering the participation fees (but not the hotel costs). If you
    wish to apply for such a grant, please send a letter of
    application stating your background and motivation, as well as a
    letter of recommendation from your adviser, to the organizers of
    the summer school.
