U-Test at ODIN 2017

The test conference “ODIN 2017” is an all-day software testing conference with 3 tracks and 21 lecturers. Testing is in strong growth, and several see the need to carry out more testing before solutions are put into production. The Odin conference is suitable for anyone who engages in product quality on IT systems and what it can mean for the organization’s goals.

On September 20th, the “ODIN 2017” will take place at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Oslo! The “ODIN 2017” will feature a U-Test’s session.

This year’s theme is: Visionist, nostalgic – or both?

About ODIN conference: “The conference has been named after Odin, the God of knowledge and wisdom in Norwegian mythology. Odin was the chief of gods, the most powerful and wisest of all of them.”

Webinar: Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling

Register FREE at BrightTalk to join

About this webinar

The importance of facing, understanding, predicting and even mitigating uncertainty has been well acknowledged and studied in various fields such as philosophy, physics and finance.

In terms of software and system engineering, due to the increasing complex of large-scale systems themselves, and the dynamic and unpredictable deployment and operation environments of such systems, increasing attentions have been given to address challenges of explicitly specifying and modeling uncertainty.

Uncertainty Modeling (UM) aims to promote and enable explicit specifications of uncertainty and uncertainty related concepts, at various contexts (e.g., developing large-scale Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things, for different purposes (e.g., enabling uncertainty-wise requirements specifications, modeling, verification and validation, e.g., facilitating the definition of uncertainty-wise testing strategies), and at different phases of the development of such complex and uncertainty-inherent systems (e.g., requirements, architecture, design, testing and operation).

In the context of OMG, we see a diverse set of uncertainty modeling applications, such as 1) integrating with UML use cases, SysML Requirements Diagram, to enable requirements V&V, 2) capturing uncertainty as part of SysML or UML models to facilitate design and/or testing, 3) integrating with BPMN and other OMG standards to facilitate different kinds of analyses and generations.

OMG’s Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information (RFI) is currently open for responses. The RFI aims to solicit ideas, discussions, comments, recommendations, user needs and experiences about uncertainty modeling. Collected responses will be carefully analyzed and will be used to identify requirements, based on an RFP for an UM will be developed. Instructions for responding to this RFI are specified in the OMG Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information document (ad/16-09-02 (Uncertainty RFI)).

We invite you to join the conversation.
Live online Jan 25 5:00 pm (Norway, Oslo)
Duration: 60 mins

Smart Cyber-Physical Systems – Concertation Event

When? 30 January 2017 (all-day event)
Where? Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre, Brussels
How do I participate? To register please follow this link:
The event is organized by the Horizon2020 projects Road2CPS and TAMS4CPS on behalf of the European Commission and is free of charge.

We are pleased to announce the EU Smart Cyber-Physical Systems Concertation Event on 30th of January at the Bedford Hotel and Congress Centre, Brussels. It is organized by the coordination actions Road2CPS and TAMS4CPS. Please book this event in your calendars. More information will follow soon.
The event will bring together the Cyber-Physical Systems, embedded intelligent systems and advanced computing communities across Europe and is set to reinforce exchange and strengthen the links between the Horizon2020 CPS projects, Artemis-IA, HIPEAC and the larger CPS community. The event will be a follow-up of the Smart-Cyber-Physical Systems Clustering and Communication Event held in Vienna on 14th of April 2016 and will gather 15 ICT-1 projects funded under Horizon2020-ICT-1 2014 and 5 new Horizon2020 ICT-1-2016 projects. The findings of the Road2CPS and TAMS4CPS projects in the context of a CPS roadmap and collaboration agenda will be put to discussion with the community.

Road2CPS will present the final Technology and Application Roadmap, which identifies and describes the relevant underlying technology fields and related research priorities to fuel the development of trustworthy CPS, as well as the specific technologies, needs and barriers for a successful implementation in different application domains.
TAMS4CPS fosters strategic EU-US collaboration on modelling and simulation for CPS. The consortium will present the Strategic Research and Collaboration Agenda, which has been commonly compiled together with US stakeholders and is supposed to lay the foundation for collaborative activities.
The final agenda and speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. The event is organised back-to-back with the ARTEMIS-IA Brokerage Event, which will take place in the same premises on 31st of January and 1st February 2017.

We will be delighted to see you there!

Meike Reimann (Coordinator Road2CPS) and Michael Henshaw (Coordinator TAMS4CPS)

Smart Cyber-Physical Systems Clustering and Communication Event

Smart Cyber-Physical Systems Clustering and Communication Event

The Hofburg in Vienna, Austria
Oslo Science Park, 0123 Oslo

April 14th 2016

The Road2CPS project (H2020-ICT1 CSA) is organizing the ‘Smart Cyber-Physical Systems Clustering and Communication Event’, to bring together the 15 ongoing ICT-1 projects to exchange ideas, discuss results and foster synergies amongst them and other CPS projects, as well as to communicate the outcomes to a wider audience.

The event will take place on April 14th in the Hofburg in Vienna in conjunction with the ARTEMIS Spring event (April 13th-14th) and back-to-back to the CPS-week (April 11th-14th). We expect an audience of about 150 people (academia, industry, policy making, also from CPS-week and ARTEMIS), and we would be very pleased to have you or a representative from your consortium as a speaker (10 min presentation and poster) about your ICT-1 project.

The EC also wishes to benefit from this ‘communication event’, to disseminate the ICT-1 results to a broader audience also targeting policy making / industry / broader public and the presentations should be ‘easy to understand’ also for a non-technical audience. Moreover, a rapporteur will summarize the presentations/discussions to be publicized on the EC-website.
Your consortium / networks are invited

(registration, free of charge, will open soon)!
