Engineered systems in use today are highly dependent on computation and communication resources. This includes systems of all kinds, ranging from vehicles to large-scale industrial systems and national critical infrastructures. The resilience of the computational systems and infrastructures underlying these technologies is of great importance for mission continuity, security and safety. Resilience, in this context, is understood as the ability of a system to anticipate, withstand, recover, and evolve from cyber attacks and failures. In this symposium we will focus on the topic of resilience of cyber-physical systems. Among others, the concepts of cyber awareness, anticipation, avoidance, protection, detection, and response to cyber attacks will be promoted and will help set the tone of the event. A better understanding of the science and engineering of these concepts and its supporting technologies will help provide some of the key underlying capabilities for the design and development of resilient cyber-physical systems.
