Monitoring of Cyber-Physical Systems

A cyber-physical system is a digital component that controls a physical object such as an autonomous car, a nuclear power plant, or a medical implant. Cyber-physical systems are hard to design correctly; they are also difficult to test or verify. In this seminar, we will study dynamic analysis methods, where a monitoring component observes the behavior of the system and determines whether it is in a safe or unsafe state. If a problem is detected, the monitor raises an alarm and prompts the system to initiate a mitigation protocol. We will take a look at state-of-the-art runtime monitoring techniques for cyber-physical systems and discuss recent developments in this field.

The seminar will have two phases. In the first phase, small groups of participants will read up on some subarea of the seminar and give an overview presentation. In the second phase, we will have individual presentations on recent papers.


This course spans over the summer semester, starting with a kick-off meeting on April 14, 10am. The last meeting will be on July 21 and the final deadline is on August 21.

After the kick-off meeting, you will be assigned a reading group covering one of the following topics:

  • Logic-based Monitoring
  • Quantitative Monitoring
  • Integration and Case Studies

There is one advisor per reading group.  Your advisor is your main point of contact throughout both phases of the seminar. 

After the reading group phase, the individual group phase begins. We will have six regular meetings on Wednesday at 10am with two talks each. Your individual paper is assigned to you two weeks before your individual talk.  Refer to the timetable for all important dates.


Your grade depends on your reading group and individual presentations and summaries, as well as your participation in discussions.


Please only register if you were selected over the centralized seminar distribution system!
