"Distinguished lecture series to focus on cyber-physical systems "

Washington University in St. Louis will be hosting a "Distinguished lecture series to focus on cyber-physical systems" that includes Edward A. Lee's talk:

"Nov. 12. Edward A. Lee, PhD, the Robert S. Pepper Distinguished Professor of computer science at the University of California, Berkeley and director of Chess (Center for Hybrid and Embedded Software Systems), raises an even deeper problem in a talk titled “Computing Needs Time.” He asks whether today’s computing technologies provide an adequate foundation for cyber-physical systems because time and timing play such an important role in physical systems, while software takes account of the passage of time, but only very indirectly."
