In conjunction with the SIMS56 conference on simulation and modeling at Linköping University October 7-10, there will also be tutorials which can be attended also without registering for the conference. If you are interested send an email to

October 7, 13:30 – 16:30: 3 hrs tutorials, hands-on exercises, bring your laptop:

  • Tutorial 1: Principles of Object-Oriented Modelingand Simulation of Dynamic Systems with Modelica.

The Fifth International Workshop on Design, Modeling and Evaluation of Cyber Physical Systems (CyPhy'15) - 8 October 2015, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
(Held in conjunction with ESWEEK 2015)

Scope Cyber physical systems (CPSs) combine computing and networking power with physical components. They enable innovation in a wide range of domains including robotics; smart homes, vehicles, and buildings; medical implants; and future-generation sensor networks.  CyPhy'15 brings together researchers and practitioners working on modeling, simulation, and evaluation of CPS, based on a broad interpretation of these areas, to collect and exchange expertise from a diverse set of disciplines. The workshop places particular focus on techniques and components to enable and support virtual prototyping and testing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following aspects of cyber-physical systems:

  • Foundations: models of computation, modeling and simulation languages for hybrid and cyber-­physical systems, including hybrid automata and hybrid process theory, as well as other integrations of control-­theoretic and discrete-­event models
  • Methods: Specifications and evaluation of processes for rigorous modeling, testing, simulation, and verification of new cyber-­physical systems
  • Case studies: Development of industrial or research ­oriented cyber­-physical systems in domains such as robotics, smart systems (homes, vehicles, buildings), medical and healthcare devices, future generation networks
  • Tools: Evaluation of novel research tools, comparisons of state of the art tools in industrial practice.

Important Dates
Submissions: June 10, 2015
Notifications: July 10, 2015
Camera-Ready: August 3, 2015
Workshop: October 8, 2015

Submission Types
1) research papers (max. 15 pages, LNCS format);
2) positions papers (max. 4 pages, not published); and
3) tool demonstrations (max. 10 pages, LNCS format).

Research papers will be judged for technical novelty and scientific merit.  Any previous publication in any form must be explicitly identified and cited on the first page of the submission.  Papers in all other categories will be judged on novelty, clarity, accessibility, and suitability for a high quality presentation and discussion at the workshop.

Submissions of type 1 and 3 will be published in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science, by Springer.
If the quality of the submissions warrants, a special issue of an archival journal will be negotiated for the best submissions (subject to confirmation, and an additional round of review).

Submission Instructions
Papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS style, not exceed the respective page limits (including figures and references), and be submitted in PDF format through the following submission website.

Except for regular research papers, the paper category must be indicated at the end of the title in parenthesis at the time of the initial submission and in the final camera ready version.
Simultaneous submission to other venues with a formal publication (workshops, conferences, symposia, and journals) is not allowed. Duplicated submissions or other types of plagiarism will result in rejection and a report will be sent to the corresponding institution's dean or manager.
Papers not adhering to the format or page limit may be rejected without a review.

Past Workshops

ELLIIT Workshop, 1-2 October 2015, Halmstad, Sweden.
The ELLIIT Workshop is a yearly meeting for the Strategic Research Area within IT & Mobile Communication hosted by Linköping University. The Workshop is an internal event for researchers at the four universities and institute of technology members involved in the ELLIIT activities. The aim of the Workshop is to give a comprehensive presentation of the research areas and to stimulate further cooperation and discussions for future directions. The ELLIIT Workshop for 2015 will take place in Halmstad on October 1-2 2015. Visit ELLITT Workshop  2015 for more information.

Accelerator control seminar, LTH. Bo Bernhardsson and Anders J Johansson arranged a series of seminars around accelerator control. The first seminar was given on Thursday April 16 at 10.15 in room E:2311 in the E-building in at LTH.

PhD course on CPS (Cyber-Physical Systems) took place on from 13 to 17 April 2015.
