Aim:

Today we live through the beginning of a technological revolution in the area of dependable and secure systems driven by an accelerated integration of information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT). IT encompasses, for example, advanced networking technologies, like Ethernet, TCP/IP, and higher layered networks, software-defined networking (SDN), or virtualization technologies. OT, on the other hand, encompasses technology typically associated with embedded systems and cyber-physical systems. Sometimes IT and OT overlap today, as in cases of industrial communication technologies based on Ethernet. However, various industry trends indicate a much stronger integration of IT and OT in the future. Examples of these IT/OT integration trends are: Industrie 4.0, Internet of Things, intelligent transportation systems, smart grid, smart city, and other smart developments. The IT/OT integration will be one of the main motors that contributes to the success of these developments
 
 

Topics:

  • Novel use of IT technologies in Real-Time and (Networked) Embedded Systems
  • Safety and Security Aspects of IT/OT convergence
  • CPS information management: data fusion, big data, data curation
  • Cooperative automation
