2015 DCPS tutorial workshop

Dear colleagues,

we announce a tutorial workshop within the DCPS project on:

Digital Signal Processing: algorithms, applications, and architectures

Date: Feb. 25th 2015
Place: Poznań University of Technology (PUT), Centre of Mechatronics, Biomechanics, and Nanoengineering (MCH), room 301, Jana Pawła II 24 (Piotrowo campus), Poznań, POLAND
Timing: 10:25 a.m. to 4:30 p. m.

The agenda is available here. Students, professors from partner universities, and guests are very welcome!


What are CPS/DCPS?

"Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are smart networked systems with embedded sensors, processors and actuators that are designed to sense and interact with the physical world (including the human users), and support real-time, guaranteed performance in safety-critical applications, as defined in a CPS Vision Statement published in 2012 by the Federal Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program’s CPS Senior Steering Group. In CPS systems, the joint behavior of the cyber and physical elements of the system is critical - computing, control, sensing and networking can be deeply integrated into every component, and the actions of components and systems must be safe and interoperable. Just as the Internet transformed the way people interact with information, CPS is transforming the way people interact with engineered systems and promoting sustainability."

Z. Wang et al., Cyber-Physical Systems for Water Sustainability: Challenges and opportunities, IEEE Comm. Mag. Vol. 53, No. 5, 216-222, (2015)


Dependable Cyber Physical Systems are large systems and netwoks located in the „real world“ which work under the control of multiple computer-based sub-systems. Examples:

  • electric power grids
  • air-traffic control
  • rail-traffic control
  • street street/highway traffic management  
  • wireless sensor networks, e.g. for environmental control

In all these applications, computers, which work without a notion of real time „cyber space“ are used to monitor and control other systems with strong requirements to guarantee a certain function within strict time limits.


DCPS is a funded project of the DAAD-Program „Strategic Partnerships and Thematic Networks“ (2013-2016).

DCPS is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), financed by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).
