Aim and topics

Smart and reliable service interoperability and composition across heterogeneous platforms and networking environments build the foundation for added-value services. Their key requirement is seamless, well-defined and potentially cross-sectorial interoperability among stakeholders on application-, service- and device level. Interoperability has become a competitive factor for many industrial branches such as automotive, aerospace, energy, healthcare or factory and building automation. At the same time it serves as an application enabler for cross-domain business as envisioned e.g. for electro mobility, smart grid or even cooperative engineering.

This workshop encourages communication and exchange of ideas between industrial and academic researchers and developers in the field of preferably embedded middleware, service-oriented architectures and heterogeneous networked environments. It follows the whole path from system engineering over system implementation to system testing and leverages the discussion about industrial practices and future trends.

From this perspective, the workshop is focused on (but not restricted to) the following subjects:

Architectures and Design Principals

  • Platforms, frameworks and tools support
  • Configuration & management
  • Creation, deployment, life cycle management
  • System security, validation and testing
  • Functional safety
  • Semantic web services & web services ontology
  • Real-time SOA
  • Verification and testing
  • Decentralized/peer-to-peer architectures for device/application networking

Service platforms for CPS

  • Service platforms for cyber-physical systems
  • Service platforms for smart grid, energy management, energy metering, and electro mobility
  • Service platforms for smart car, smart traffic, and multimodality
  • Service platforms for smart home and smart building
  • Service platforms for ambient assisted living medical, clinics and healthcare systems
  • Service platforms for process, factory, and industrial applications
  • Enterprise architecture integration and product lifecycle management
  • SOA in industrial environments

Networked embedded systems, IoT & CPS

  • Technologies for interworking smart objects
  • Embedded web services
  • Software defined networks (SDN)
  • SOA for/on/in devices and embedded systems
  • Device centric SOAs and RESTful environments
  • Real-time embedded networked applications and systems
  • Web services and middleware for networked embedded systems
  • Resource constrained and low power lossy networks
  • Scalability, reliability, safety and security aspects
  • Lightweight security suites for the Internet of Things
  • SOA in the internet and the Internet of Things
  • Sensor systems, Sensor networks, Sensor clouds
