M. Wimmer: Theme Issue on Multi-Paradigm Modeling for Cyber-Physical Systems, Journal of Software and Systems Modeling, Springer 2019 pdf

We are currently facing a dramatically increasing complexity in software and systems engineeringwith the emergence of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). Comprehensive and systematic views on all aspects of systems (e.g., mechanics, electronics, software, and networkaspects) during complete life-cycle are required.In addition, managing inter-disciplinary engineering processes to ensure the construction, delivery, operation, and evolution of high-quality CPS s a must in all industrialdomains such as automotive, aerospace, railway, energy and manufacturingto name just a few examples.
