Newcastle University, UK


School of Computing Science

Description of the organisation

Newcastle University is a world leading research-intensive university in the North-East of England, ranked 16th in the UK for global research power in the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework (REF).

The School of Computing Science, founded in 1957, comprises research groups in: Advanced Model-Based Engineering and Reasoning (AMBER); Digital Interaction; Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS); Scalable Computing; Secure & Resilient Systems (SRS); and Teaching Innovation. The school was ranked first in the UK for the quality of its research impact in the 2014 REF.

Engaging in TAMS4CPS are researchers from the AMBER, SRS and ICOS groups.  Together these groups provide over 30 years of expertise in the field of trustworthy computer-based systems: rigorous design, fault tolerance, verification tools, system architectures, dependability concepts, traceability and socio-technical aspects. Their members pioneered the view that dependability is a system property and its achievement requires cooperation between disciplines and between engineers and non-engineers.

Role in TAMS4CPS

Newcastle University leads WP2 on ‘Modelling and Simulation for CPS Themes’. Newcastle University contributes to all work packages, particularly focussing on the themes led by Newcastle University on ‘Architectures principles and models for autonomous safe and secure Cyber-Physical Systems’ and ‘System design, modelling and virtual engineering for Cyber-Physical Systems’.
