Invited Talk: Actor-based Design Platform for System of Systems
Marjan Sirjani

Abstract: Collaborating systems consist of interdependent systems that collaborate to realise a common goal. Such systems are formed by synergetic collaboration among distributed systems and evolve dynamically. Integrated manufacturing systems, enterprise information systems and collaborative transportation systems are examples of collaborating systems.
In this talk I present a family of actor-based languages that are used for modeling, verification and analysis of collaborating systems.
I focus on a platform for designing flow management systems, like in Intelligent Transportation Systems. The platform can be used for improving safety, increasing efficiency, enhance mobility, reduce power consumption and environmental cost, and increase economic productivity.

Bio: Marjan Sirjani is a Professor and chair of Software Engineering at Mälardalen University, and the leader of Cyber-Physical Systems Analysis research group. Her main research interest is applying formal methods in Software Engineering. She works on modeling and verification of concurrent, distributed, and self-adaptive systems. Marjan and her research group are pioneers in building model checking tools, compositional verification theories, and state-space reduction techniques for actor-based models. She has been working on analyzing actors since 2001 using the modeling language Rebeca ( Rebeca and its extensions are designed to bridge the gap between model-based software development and formal analysis, and has been used for analyzing different network and system applications. Her research is now focused on safety assurance and performance evaluation of self-adaptive systems, in which she is collaborating with Ptolemy group at UC Berkeley. Marjan has been the PC member and PC chair of several international conferences including SEFM, iFM, Coordination, FM, FMICS, SAC, FSEN. She is an editor of the journal of Science of Computer Programming. Before joining academia as a full-time faculty, she has been the managing director of Behin System Company for more than ten years, developing software and providing system services. Marjan served as the head of the Software Engineering Department of School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Tehran prior to joining the School of Computer Science at Reykjavik University in 2008.

Call for Papers

The Computer Architecture & Platforms Symposium (CAP) aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners that study and build computer systems consisting of disparate components, using different metrics and methods, but providing synergetic effects.  These systems usually act as reusable supporting platforms for a wide range of applications, potentially restricted by specific domains.
CAP is uniquely positioned within COMPSAC to address relevant topics related to the conception, design, deployment and utilization of a variety of architectures and platforms – from mobile to networked data centers. Non-limiting topics include:
  • requirements analysis
  • co-analysis, co-design and co-verification
  • modeling, design, development, testing, measurement, verification and validation for function, performance, safety, security, and dependability constraints of cyber-physical systems and networked systems.
The effective construction of computing systems is not restricted solely to the field of computer science and engineering, but it is truly a multidisciplinary effort. Multidisciplinary work, research and development of software prototypes, industry-university collaborations, all based on emerging and critical concepts and technologies are of particular interest to this symposium.
