About

The 1st Summer School on Formal Methods for Cyber-Physical Systems (FM-CPS) is a new summer school to be held at University of Verona from September 12th to 16th. The 2017 edition of FM-CPS 2017 focuses on the foundations, techniques, and tools for analysis, verification, control, synthesis, implementation, and applications of cyber-physical systems (CPS). Applications deal broadly with engineering and natural systems, including signal circuits, robotics, automotive and avionics, large-scale infrastructure networks, as well as biochemical and physiological processes.

Themes

The main themes faced during the school include:

  • Design, synthesis, planning and control (including real-time and resource-aware control)
  • Analysis, automated verification (Boolean or quantitative), certification, validation, and testing
  • Model building from data (via learning) and model simulation)
  • Network science and control over networks
  • Mathematical foundations, computability and complexity
  • Programming languages, specification formalisms
  • Software tool engineering and experimentation

Focus of the First Edition

This first edition of the school has the goal of presenting the state of the art of the current techniques in controller synthesis for hybrid systems, to enable doctoral students and young researchers to advance the field and apply the developed methodologies to concrete scenarios promoting their application in the industrial practice. The control synthesis problem will be addressed both in the discrete domain
and in the timed/hybrid one with techniques ranging from supervisory control, to synthesizing strategies in a two-player game, and
to control-theoretic techniques.

Contributions of interest discussed in this edition of the school include:

  • Introduction to the the Synthesis Problem;
  • Practical Reactive Synthesis;
  • Automated synthesis for nonlinear control systems;
  • Controller Synthesis for Linear Hybrid Systems;
  • Automatic Synthesis of Control Software for Discrete-Time Hybrid Systems;
  • Control Synthesis of Piecewise-affine Hybrid Systems on Polytopes.

The school will include tutorial presentations as well as laboratory sessions that will allow the students to apply the concepts introduced during the lectures in a laboratory set-up.
