9-13 July 2012 University of Twente, Netherlands
We invite PhD students and other researchers to participate in a new summer school on multi-disciplinary approaches to collaborative modelling and co-simulation of embedded and distributed control systems. DESTECS (\"Design Support and Tooling for Embedded Control Software\", www.destecs.org) is a consortium of research groups and companies working on the challenge of providing tools and methods that allow developers from different disciplines such as systems, mechanical, electrical and software engineering to collaborate in modelling and simulation of embedded systems at early stages in design. The summer school provides an opportunity to explore the challenges of co-modelling and co-simulation using real tools and industry-led examples and case studies. Our hope is help establish a community of interest for future collaboration. We welcome participants with a background or strong interest in the development of control systems and software in a wide variety of application domains, or in the tools and methods to support this.
We have room for up to 20 participants. Participation is free of charge (including refreshment and lunch during the day). You need to fund your own travel, accommodation and per diem (lunches and coffee will be supplied free of charge). For full details, visit http://destecs.org/summerschool.html. Applying for a place is easy: complete an on-line registration form and then send a poster about your own research interests that we can use to help select members for an appropriately mixed group of participants. The deadline for submission of your application is 13th April 2012. We will notify you of the outcome by the end of April.
