SEAA 2013
A special workshop session on Teaching, Education and Training for Dependable Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems was held in cooperation with the ERCIM Dependable Embedded Systems Working Group at the 39th Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA 2013) Santander, Spain September 4-6, 2013. The workshop session was part of the regular session scheme of SEAA 2013. {jcomments on}It included four presentations:

  • “Efficient embedded systems education by adopting component based software development paradigm” by Sasikumar Punnekkat, Mälardalen University, Sweden
  • “Reuse in Safety Critical Systems: Educational Use Case” by Miren Illarramendi Rezabal, Xabier Elkorobarrutia Letona and Leire Etxeberria, University of Mondragon, Spain
  • “Teaching and Training Formal Methods for Safety Critical Systems” by Michael Lipaczewski and Frank Ortmeier, Otto von Guericke University, Magdeburg, Germany
  • “European Perspectives on Teaching, Education and Training for Dependable Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems” by Erwin Schoitsch, AIT, Vienna, and Amund Skavhaug, NTNU, Norway.

The papers will be published in the conference proceedings published by IEEE.

An ERCIM/EWICS/ARTEMIS workshop on Dependable Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems (DECS) attracted 26 participants at the 32nd International Conference on Computer Safety, Reliability and Security (SAFECOMP 2013), Toulouse, France, 24 September 2013

After an introduction on “ERCIM, EWICS, ARTEMIS: Embedded Systems Safety, Security and European Strategy” followed a session with four papers on “Dependable Embedded Systems Applications”. One part of workshop was then dedicated to Robotics and Autonomous Systems, mainly reporting from the ARTEMIS project “R3-COP” (Resilient Reasoning Robotic Co-operating Systems), with two sessions (four papers each). Another part of the workshop covered “Systems Safety Analysis and Fault Tolerance” with the presentation of three papers. Proceedings will be available electronically in the HAL Open Archives (
