11h15-12h30 Parallel sessions and workshop

S1 The fuzzy front end of product development
The start of innovative products suffers from too little knowledge of many aspects, ranging from market and users to technical feasibility and finally to life-cycle needs. The uncertainty and ambiguity that dominates during this phase require a development approach supporting the team in learning fast. Agile with fast iterations, design thinking, human centered design, and conceptual modeling are examples of approaches facilitating fast learning.
Chair and introduction: Guy Van Wijmeersch (Barco). Lectures:Tom Rebry (Barco) and Wil Baas (Philips). Facilitator: Gerrit Muller (ESI).

S2 Open source software for product development
The adoption of open-source software is increasing tremendously. This raises important concerns about security, liability, and maintenance that must be addressed not only technically, but also from an organizational point-of-view. This session focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of open-source software in product development from the perspective of different companies in different application domains and discusses how their technology, business and organization is impacted by this trend.
Chair and introduction: Dirk-Jan Swagerman (Philips). Lectures: René van Hees (Thales) and Carl-Eric Mols (Sony). Facilitator: Benny Akesson (ESI).

S3 Security: impact on connected systems
Cyber physical systems are now routinely connected to the world at large. With that, security against cyber-attacks has become a crucial quality and base requirement of CPS. This calls for security-by-design at the system level. Among others, in the overall system architecture, one needs to understand the impact and trade-off with other system qualities, such as performance, functional safety and robustness. In this session we will discuss how to make system security an integral part of system engineering by considering real-life cases.
Chair and introduction: Jimmy Troost (HTSM). Lectures: Thomas Quillinan (Thales) and Timo van Roermund (NXP). Facilitator: Wouter Leibbrandt (ESI).

W1 Interactive workshop on domain specific languages (DSLs)
The participants discuss their expectations and experiences with domain specific languages. In particular we will position DSLs in the field of model-based engineering and look at some industrial DSLs.
Chair: Arjan Mooij (ESI). Lectures: Kristina Sevo (Philips Lighting) and Mathijs Schuts (Philips Healthcare).

W2 Interactive workshop on performance architecting and engineering
The participants discuss current and future industrial challenges in performance engineering. We will match these with TNO-ESI’s knowledge base and discuss research challenges and training opportunities. 
Chair: Jacques Verriet (ESI). Lectures: Jeroen Voeten (ESI) and Twan Basten (TU/e).

S4 Interplay of data and knowledge in system analysis
Nowadays a fleet of operational systems collects and processes huge amounts of data. Unlike the “data only” approach of online services using big data, cyber physical systems typically need explicit domain models to be effective. This session explores the reinforcing effect of combining data, models, and simulation.
Chair and introduction: Robert-Jan van Wijk (ASML). Lectures: Michael Borth (ESI), Peter Mas (Siemens). Facilitator: Emile van Gerwen (ESI).

S5 The future of learning in high-tech industry
To deal with increasing complexity the engineering community adopts new and powerful approaches, methods, and tools such as virtual development environments, model driven engineering, and domain specific languages. However, the tool trap, with more focus on what and how instead of why, is just around the corner. What are the consequences of these developments for the future of competence development in high-tech industry. In this session we will invite a speaker from outside high-tech industry, operating in a highly complex environment. What is his vision on the future of competence development? What can high-tech industry learn?
Chair and introduction: Mireille Merx (Océ). Lectures: Frank Klap (LVNL), Joris van den Aker (ESI). Facilitator: Laura van Veen (ESI).

S6 System architecting of complex systems
System architecting of complex systems typically engages multiple architects and domain experts to transform a business strategy into a fitting solution architecture. The effective shaping of system propositions needs a shared understanding across disciplines and stakeholders, and consistency in architectural reasoning and in focus over time. This track explores system architecting strategies and methods to structure and improve collaboration, communication, and guidance for (teams of) system architects and their stakeholders.
Chair and introduction: Raymond Tinsel (DAF). Lectures: Richard Doornbos (ESI), Bruno van Wijngaarden (Vanderlande). Facilitator: Teun Hendriks (ESI).

W1 Interactive workshop on domain specific languages (DSLs)
The participants discuss their expectations and experiences with domain specific languages. In particular we will position DSLs in the field of model-based engineering and look at some industrial DSLs.
Chair: Arjan Mooij (ESI). Lectures: Kristina Sevo (Philips Lighting) and Mathijs Schuts (Philips Healthcare).
