Seminar
PRECISE Seminar: Robust Digital Computation in the Physical World
Modern digital hardware and software designs are increasingly complex but are themselves only idealizations of a real system that is instantiated in, and interacts with, an analog physical environment. Insights from physics, formal methods, and complex systems theory can aid… Read more

Seminar
PRECISE Seminar: Internet of Bionic Things (Cyber-Enabled Bionic Organisms for Environmental Sensing)
The present day technology falls short in offering autonomous mobile robots that can function effectively and efficiently under unknown and dynamic environmental conditions. Insects and canines, on the other hand, exhibit an unmatched ability to navigate through a wide… Read more

Seminar
PRECISE Seminar: Challenges for future IoT gateway/infrastructure platforms and the embedding of new memory technologies
It is well-known that today's computing platforms for the IoT big data server and network router infrastructure is highly energy-consuming. And scaling this to the exascale sizes and Tbps bandwidth handling, which are required for the future, looks implausible with… Read more

Seminar
PRECISE Seminar: Definitions of Logical Causality for Trace Analysis
Establishing liabilities in component-based systems is a challenging task, as it requires to establish convincing evidence with respect to the occurrence of a failure, and the causality relation between the failure and a damage. The second issue is especially complex when… Read more

Seminar
Joint ESE-PRECISE Seminar: Modeling and Co-design of Control Tasks over Wireless Networking Protocols (State of the Art and Challenges)
Wireless networked control systems are the integration of physical processes with wireless networked computing units. The co-design of control policies and network configuration must take into account the joint dynamics of communication protocols/channels and physical devices… Read more

Seminar
PRECISE Seminar: Resilient Monitoring and Control of Distribution Networks
This talk will focus on the attacker-defender interactions on electricity distribution networks (DNs) that typically have a tree-like topology. Two attack models will be introduced: (i) manipulation of distributed energy resources by a strategic adversary; and (ii) energy… Read more

Seminar
PRECISE Seminar: Modeling New and Resilient Airspace Operations by Harnessing Open Data in Air Transportation
High-fidelity models of airport and airspace capacity enable researchers to study modernization strategies that optimize capacity yet require volumes of detailed aircraft movement data. These datasets exist in the public and private realms but are highly challenging and… Read more

Seminar
PRECISE Seminar: Using model checking to improve the quality of complex industrial software
Developing correct parallel and distributed software is a daunting task. The parallelism causes the state-spaced explosion problem: the number of states in the system grows exponentially with the number of parallel components. One of the ways to verify that such a system… Read more
