SIES 2018

13th International Symposium on Industrial Embedded Systems


June 06 – 08, 2018, Graz, Austria, ICT for a Dependable Internet of Things

2nd Symposium on Dependable Internet of Things


05 June 2018, Graz, Austria

Welcome to SIES 2018 and the
2nd Symposium on Dependable IoT

Background: Application domains have a considerable impact on the evolution of embedded systems, in terms of required methodologies and design paradigms, supporting tools, and resulting technologies. Beside increasingly complex software and growing networks, application-specific hardware and systems on chips (SoC) will become more and more relevant in all areas of industrial and consumer applications. In order to provide sophisticated local and global services, there is a growing tendency to co-design hardware, software and networks for smart, dependable and networked devices. Therein, complex sensor/actuator functionality demands for real-time, safe, and secure signal conversion, data processing, and communication over large lifetimes of the deployed embedded systems. Apart, there is a clearly visible trend towards an increasing interaction between the affected domains. In this regard, the Internet of Things (IoT) promises to be one of the most disruptive technologies with transformational impact on industry and society throughout the next decades. As a global super-infrastructure, the IoT is a key enabling technology for a multitude of application domains, including smart cities, smart cars, smart home, smart health, smart factories, smart buildings, etc. However, related applications and services are only feasible if the underlying IoT doesn’t fail and disastrous real-world impacts are avoided, making dependability one of its main design challenges.

Aim: The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia. SIES provides a platform to report on recent developments, deployments, technology trends and research results, as well as to discuss and start initiatives related to embedded systems and their applications in a variety of industrial environments.

About the Symposium: The SIES symposium series, which started in 2006, is an annual event organized by some of the leading research groups involved in research on embedded systems and applications. The series was hosted by University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France (2006); Uninova, Portugal (2007); LIRMM/CNRS, France (2008); Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland (2009); University of Trento, Italy (2010); Mälardalen University, Sweden (2011); Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany (2012); Polytechnic Institute of Porto, Portugal (2013); Scuola Superiore S. Anna, Italy (2014); Siegen University, Germany (2015); AGH UST, Poland (2016), and France (2017).

Graz is the second largest city in Austria, embedded into beautiful and diverse landscapes, with the wine growing region known as "Styrian Tuskany" in the south, a region rich of hot springs and spas in the east, and the Alps in the north and west. The medieval old town is one of the largest and best-preserved in central Europe and was named a UNESCO world heritage site. Its magnificent buildings bear witness to over 850 years of architecture in the city, such as the Landhaus, the cathedral and the mausoleum, Eggenberg Castle and the Grazer Burg with its double-spiral staircase. These ancient edifices merge in unique harmony with state-of-the-art works by internationally renowned architects, such as the Kunsthaus Graz, Joanneumsviertel, or the greenhouses in the Botanical Gardens. Graz is also a young and lively city with more than 50.000 students enrolled into six universities.
