                        Call for Contributions
General Information
The First Open Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering will be
held in Trento on May 24th, 2013. The Centre for Information
Technology (Irst) of the Fondazione Bruno Kessler together with the
Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI) of
the University of Trento make up Trento RISE, an EIT ICT pole for
excellence located in the Trentino Region, the heart of one of the
most innovative areas of Italy and Europe. The FBK is a hotspot where
education, research, and industry meet.

Context and Motivation
The ongoing integration of software-intensive embedded systems and
global communication networks into Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) is
considered to be the next revolution in ICT with a great deal of
game-changing business potential and novel business models for
integrated products and services. Many technology leaders are already
in the midst of a global race of repositioning and reinventing
themselves by developing new dynamic CPS-inspired business models.

Mastering the engineering of complex and trustworthy CPS is crucial to
implementing such business models. Current systems engineering
frameworks, however, do not enable a conceptualization and design for
the deep interdependencies among engineered systems and the natural
world. Thus, there is a clear need for a new Cyber-Physical Systems
Engineering (CPSE) framework for apprehending the development and
operation of highly efficient CPS upon which people can almost blindly

The workshop will be a venue to share and consolidate results, to plan
joint work, and to catalyse a joint industry-academia platform to
accomplish these ambitious goals. The organization committee welcomes
the submission of position papers, short papers and presentations
about any topics related to:

* Integrated processes based on the design-operation life-cycle  continuum 
* Multidisciplinary modelling and analysis of discrete-continuous systems 
* Composition and integration frameworks for heterogeneous systems
* Scalable and evolvable system and software architectures
* Open and standardized tool integration frameworks for performance
  and trustworthiness analysis
* Industrial experience on engineering CPS

The workshop will take place in the FBK research centre located in the
suburban hills of Povo, few minutes from the Trento's downtown, which
contains a picturesque Medieval and Renaissance historic centre, with
ancient buildings such as Trento Cathedral and the Castello del
