Keynote Address 1
Edward A. Lee
Professor, Berkeley University, USA
Edward A. Lee is the Robert S. Pepper Distinguished Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) department at U.C. Berkeley. His research interests center on design, modeling, and analysis of embedded, real-time computational systems. He is the director of the nine-university TerraSwarm Research Center (http://terraswarm.org), a director of Chess, the Berkeley Center for Hybrid and Embedded Software Systems, and the director of the Berkeley Ptolemy project. From 2005-2008, he served as chair of the EE Division and then chair of the EECS Department at UC Berkeley. He is co-author of six books and hundreds of papers. He has led the development of several influential open-source software packages, notably Ptolemy and its various spinoffs. He received the B.S. degree in Computer Science from Yale University in 1979, the S.M. degree in EECS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1981, and the Ph.D. degree in EECS from UC Berkeley in 1986. From 1979 to 1982 he was a member of technical staff at Bell Telephone Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey, in the Advanced Data Communications Laboratory. He is a co-founder of BDTI, Inc., where he is currently a Senior Technical Advisor, and has consulted for a number of other companies. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, was an NSF Presidential Young Investigator, and won the 1997 Frederick Emmons Terman Award for Engineering Education
Title: The Internet of Important Things
Cyber-physical systems are integrations of computation, communication networks, and physical dynamics. Applications include manufacturing, transportation, energy production and distribution, biomedical, smart buildings, and military systems, to name a few. Increasingly, today, such systems leverage Internet technology, despite a significant mismatch in technical objectives. A major challenge today is to make this technology reliable, predictable, and controllable enough for "important" things, such as safety-critical and mission-critical systems. In this talk, I will analyze how emerging technologies can translate into better models and better engineering methods for this evolving Internet of important things.

Keynote Address 2
Airbus Defence and Space, GERMANY
Heinrich Daembkes is working with Airbus Defence and Space in the Electronics Engineering unit. His special interests are in the domains of systems engineering of complex safety critical systems and networked automated systems. After studying electrical engineering at the Technical University in Aachen, Germany and a PhD degree from Duisburg University on GaAs-based FETs and HEMTs he worked for many years in the R&D of high speed devices, circuits and subsystems in the Daimler group. In 1996 he became a co-founder and CEO of United Monolithic Semiconductors (UMS), a joint venture between Thales and EADS on GaAs-based MMICs, which is a successful commercial enterprise since then. In 1995 he also became professor at the University of Ulm, which at present he is following on an honorary base. Since 2003 he has been with EADS Defence Electronics, now named Airbus Defence and Space, where he was head of system and software engineering. His responsibility included radar systems, electronic warfare (RF and optoelectronic) systems, and avionics systems. Since 2013 his is in his present advisor position. From 2008 to 2012 Heinrich Daembkes was member of ASD (European Aeronautic, Space, and Defence Organisation), where he served as chairman of the Security R&T committee. Since its foundation in 2006 he is representing EADS Deutschland GmbH as member in ARTEMIS-IA, where – from 2008 until 2012 - he was member of the ARTEMIS-IA Steering Board. Since January 2013 he is President of the ARTEMIS Industrial Association. He is also active in several organizations including the IEEE and EuMA
Title: Real-time Embedded Intelligence and Systems: Core for Digitalisation of European Industry
The core properties of advanced products are increasingly determined by the built-in embedded software. Nearly all domains of our daily life are affected by this trend. Especially for safety critical transportation and production hard real-time processing are required, stimulating significant new developments in the domain of processing power, but also in the domains of systems design, and decision making out of “big data”. Handling of uncertainties and providing high levels of security will be some challenges to be handled. This presentation will provide an overview of some European R&I trends and initiatives.

Keynote Address 3
VP, DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY, SAFRAN ELECTRONICS, FRANCE
Constantly focused on Innovation in embedded information systems, François Neumann began his carreer at Thomson-CSF as an engineer in Artificial Intelligence and application of Object Oriented Models in simulation. He was then in charge of the introduction of the software in real-time systems of Railway Rolling Stock in Alsthom. Head of Research Unit in the laboratories of Marcoussis (Alcatel Alsthom ) in charge of Research Programs for Industry (Critical Information Systems) and the IP routing and IPv6, he joined Alcatel to introduce Open Source (Linux) in Telecom products and then moved to Head of Business Development for Alcatel Services in Health Domain. He joined then Thales to support Innovation in Services and Security Division, then in the civil avionics (management of transformation for multimedia In Flight Entertainment System) and Critical Information Systems. He joined Safran in his current activity in November 2012. François Neumann has followed the IHEST cursus (Institut des Hautes Etudes de la Science et de la Technologie) and is member of the International Scientific Council of b<>com IRT (http://b-com.com/en)
Title : IoT and Aeronautics, two separate worlds ?
Internet of Things and Aeronautics are apparently two different planets. Images associated with IoT are small objects connected together for bringing fast delivered services with a short time to market and a low level of regulations and constraints. On the other hand aeronautics is delivering big industrial systems, with one of the highest level of certification and a slow and extremely rigorous development process.
The purpose of this keynote is to show how beneficial can be the connection between these two worlds. IoT brings cheap, efficient and autonomous technologies that can be integrated in aircraft to provide new services (prognosis, maintenance, …), the aircraft itself or their main equipments can also be considered as connected objects with emergence of broadband communication channels between plane and ground and plane to plane. In the other direction, the culture of excellence in the software development can bring to IoT some robustness and specially improve security aspects.
