SECPPS Workshop at SE 24 in Linz

At the SE conference in Linz, Austria, Sandra Greiner co-organized the sixth edition of the SECPPS workshop. The Software Engineering conference is a gathering organized by the section Softwaretechnik of the German Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI e.V.)

The workshop series on Software Engineering in Cyber-Physical Production Systems (SECPPS) aim at discussing new approaches and methods for the design of software for use in the production systems domain, which shall incorporate the latest trends from the software engineering domain. This conference edition addresses the challenges in adopting state-of-the-art software engineering tools and techniques in the automation domain and discuss various approaches to tackle the issues. Particularly, we are currently facing a dramatically increasing complexity in the development and operation of systems with the emergence of Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS). This demands for more comprehensive and systematic views on all aspects of systems (e.g., mechanics, electronics, software, and network) not only in the engineering process, but in the operation process as well. Moreover, flexible approaches are needed to adapt the systems’ behavior to ever-changing requirements and tasks, unexpected conditions, as well as structural transformations
