Focus Period Lund 2024

Security and Fault Tolerance of Cyber-Physical Systems

April 1 – May 3, 2024

In this focus period, we want to plant the seed for a radical rethinking of the way cyber-physical systems are constructed, questioning their fundamental principles and striving for constructions that are secure, safe, controllable, and dependable from the beginning.

The focus period will run in Lund between April 1 and May 3. A number of international scholars interested in these research challenges will be invited to participate, and to interact with leading scientists as well as ELLIIT researchers. In the third week (April 16-18) we will have a 3-day symposium, with several invited top-level researchers.

Registration for the symposium is now open. More information can be found here.
