2012 Workshop on Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems Education (WESE)

October 12, 2012, Tampere, Finland

Organized as a part of Embedded Systems Week

Topics and Focus

Embedded and cyber-physical systems design requires multidisciplinary skills from control and signal processing theory, electronics, computer engineering and science, telecommunication, etc., as well as application domain knowledge. Demand for embedded systems engineers has motivated a growing interest in the question of educating specialists in this domain. As system designs grow more complex and the time to market diminishes, quality education becomes more and more important. This ninth workshop on the subject aims to bring researchers, educators, and industrial representatives together to assess needs and share design, research, and experiences in embedded and cyber-physical systems education. Particular topics of interest include but are not limited to:
