Spring School on Engineering Collective Autonomic Systems
The ECAS Spring School was a success. The school provided a comprehensive overview of the results of the ASCENS project on collective self-aware autonomic systems to 35 PhD students. The presentations covered theoretical and pragmatical aspects of the main research topics on which the project focused during the last four and half years.
The school program included two keynotes, two industry talks and a set of presentations by ASCENS experts in the field of engineering collective autonomic systems. The keynote speakers were Joseph Sifakis of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and Marco Dorigo of the Univeristy Libre of Brussels. Henry Bensler from Volkswagen and Max Ahrens from Zimory GmbH were in charge of the industry talks.
Special emphasis was put on the pragmatic work in which the participants applied ASCENS languages, techniques and tools to case studies in the swarm robotics, cloud computing and e-mobility field.
ECAS was organised by the ASCENS Project
